Re: Cornwall for Christmas?

Thought I would finally let everyone know how the story ended (not that I think anyone will be all that interested but I do like a good thread followup)....

We have booked a week in Looe (East Looe to be precise) and will be spending our Christmas there. Found and fell in love with a place in Polperro, but simply couldn't justify the price, so went with Looe instead. Should be plenty of food places to keep me satisfied, and we have hired a car (albeit an extremely small and cheap one) so we can meander our way around some of the other towns and villages.

Holiday cottage is fully equiped for the purpose of cooking a Christmas roast dinner....

Fish and chip shop & pub within walking distance.....

Purveyor of cornish pasties nearby....

All boxes ticked

Flying in and out of Bournemouth (unfortunately only cheap flights left were sleazy jet) with a day either side to spend exploring my grandmothers hometown of milford-on-sea and the new forest.

Thanks to everyone for there help and suggestions...I will raise a glass and a pastie in your honour!!
