On the second day of our getaway the skies were blue and the sun was hot, which could only mean one thing. BEACH. We drove down to Trevone Bay, a beautiful beach with a deep stretch of soft sand and unusually blue sea for England.
We clambered on the rocks and splashed our feet in the sea. It may have been hot for England but that doesn’t mean that the sea isn’t still FREEZING. (As discussed in a previous Kilimanjaro post, I don’t get on well with the cold).
Incapable of sunbathing (I can’t sit still for longer than five minutes) we went for a stroll along the cliff edge of Trevone Bay. This was a great decision because the views were spectacular!
Much to the dismay of my fella, I was constantly on the look out for Poldark. If you haven’t watched the TV series then get on it now because you are missing out on some serious eye candy… ahem, I mean good quality British period drama. In my head Poldark was going to appear galloping along the cliff on his horse and whisk me off my feet…
So that didn’t happen. No Poldark or horse to be seen, but hey, a girl can dream!
After some considerable walking we decided to turn around and head back. The sun was seriously hot at this point (for England) and we’re both very pasty beings.
Being a seaside amateur I was shocked to see how much the tide had come in. That glorious big beach had all but disappeared!
With no beach left on Trevone Bay, we headed back to our little Wild West hideaway where we got ready for dinner.
The temperature had cooled off slightly so I opted for jeans with a new top from ASOS. I’m also wearing my absolute favourite pair of shoes from Reiss.
We went for dinner at Lewinnick Lodge. It’s got to be the most beautiful setting in which I’ve had dinner in the UK.
For dinner we went straight to mains. James chose traditional fish and chips. From what I could gather, it was nice but not mind-blowing.
Meanwhile I went for possibly the most calorific option eve. Pork belly burger with cheese, bacon and BBQ relish. You heard that right, a pork belly BURGER.
The chips and salad were good but boy did the burger steal the show.
Seriously good stuff. We then dashed outside to catch the sun setting amidst a glorious pink sky.
Once the sun had dived under the sea we shared a dessert outside.
Sadly the brownie was incredibly dry which was a shame as it could have been such a tasty dessert. It didn’t stop this pesky seagull keeping a beady eye on it…
We watched the waves froth and crash against the rocks before heading back to our Western wagon.
If you’re ever in the area and it’s a half decent evening then you really must visit Lewinnick Lodge (you can stay there too). The food is good but the views make it extra special.
