If your idea of an adventure is anything like our daughter Camilla’s, you may be tempted to treat yourselves to a day time beach bar coffee and cake tour – perfect for a cloudy day. (Sat Nav recommended). Michele

8:00hrs bright and early make your way to Jamie Oliver’s at Watergate Bay for a delicious breakki, with great coffee and floor to ceiling windows looking out on the surfers catching early morning waves and dogs being walked -hours of amusement. TR8 4AA

9:30hrs walk off breakfast along the miles of sandy beach at Watergate Bay

10.30hrs head west to Porthtowan and the Blue Bar, sit outside and chill out with a cool drink or if the weather is cloudy find yourself a window seat, warm up with a delicious mocha (white chocolate or milk), watch the beach activities and enjoy the vibe. Porthtowan is a great spot for sunbathing if the sun is shining, the surfing is often great here attracting the proper surfy pros. TR4 8AD

12:30hrs head further west to Godrevey Cafe Hayle, a National Trust spot this has it all, cliff walks, miles of golden sandy beach and the Godrevey Cafe a wooden building complete with balcony and the most amazing cake selection -delicious. Recommended: first walk right along the cliff to make room for delicious cake and cheese fuelled Panini lunch. Then after lunch, walk left along miles of golden sand overlooking St Ives to aid recovery and digestion. TR27 5ED

15:30hrs Hells Mouth Cafe, Gwithian Hayle, just along from Godrevey is the fantastic Hells Mouth Cafe the perfect place to stop for a delicious Callestick Farm Ice Cream and to admire the stunning view. TR27 5EG
