cornish dream

Can you see the little window behind the bed? The owner of this thatched cottage put it there to enable you to see the SECRET ROOM(!!!!) where centuries ago they would have hidden contraband and sometimes people. Downstairs there was a beautiful inglenook fireplace and on one side of it there was a hatch leading up to the room. I loved it! The whole place was beautiful. In Cadgwith Cove there is a fish cellar where we bought fresh brill and turbot and everyone is very friendly. The roads are very steep and narrow, most of the cottages are thatched. Fishermen still drag their boats down the shingle beach to fish for crab, mackerel, shark, mullet and lobster. There's folk music in the pub every Tuesday and on Friday's the fishermen sing songs. Such a lovely place. I'd like to go back in January to see the daffodil crops growing on the cliff tops.
