Finally I get to post some travel content onto my blog! It’s been a long time coming especially after the last couple of years we’ve all had!
Before I get into anything about my UK break: you will not believe how much of a doughnut I was recently. This entire year I was so adamant that I’d be going abroad on holiday, to the point that I had booked off a week and was almost booking a holiday to Mallorca - only to come to the realisation that my passport was due for renewal! I was so GUTTED, I can’t tell you the different amount of emotions I felt; I literally just laughed at myself (although I could have done with a big cry)!
Despite the terrible news after my realisation, I still had this week of annual leave where I needed to book something. Let’s face it, I’m not one to sit around and do nothing but equally I didn’t wait this long to not do anything during this week that I had booked off. I’d only ever booked city breaks in the UK and I’m blessed in a way that this event gave me the opportunity to explore a different side to the country I live in. All I have to say is, that it is beautiful and totally worth it!
I‘ve had so many messages on my socials regarding the location and I thought what’s a better way to share than posting an accessible piece of information on my blog! So here’s what most of you have been waiting for, the details of the place I visited recently:
Location: Tintagel, Cornwall
Drive: Approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes from Birmingham
Hotel: Camelot Castle
How beautiful is that view? This photo was taken in the back garden of Camelot Castle, the views are honestly breath taking and I would totally go back. Here’s my itinerary for what I did during my time in Tintagel:
Took regular walks along the coastal paths
Explores the local village/town centre
Visited Tintagel Castle and its ruins
Saw Merlins Cave
Visited St Nectans Glens waterfall
Any time that I had in the evenings, after a long day I took the time to either sit in the gardens watching the sunset whilst reading a book with a vino or just enjoying my views and taking in what the world has to offer with a Berry tea - which by the way was delicious!
Here are a few more photos from my stay in Tintagel:
St Nectans Glens Waterfall was one of the highlights of my trip to Tintagel. The reason being, because I've never felt so ground in my life. Honestly, when I say the feeling was overwhelming but in the most beautiful way; I mean exactly that.
The location is so beautiful and genuinely breath-taking! I would highly recommend visiting the location, if you're ever in and around the area.
Here's a little snapshot of what was so mesmerising...
If you haven't done a UK break yet, I would highly suggest getting one booked especially down South as you will not be disappointed.
I will definitely be returning to Cornwall!
I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post and I'll hopefully see you on my next trip!
