I was worried about the long journey, not only because of the boredom Mikey would probably face, but it'd be the first time we'd taken a long journey with a baby. I didn't have to worry about either of these though. The boredom never came thanks to car games we played (see here) and it was easier than I thought taking Dot - although I don't know what I'd thought would happen!
We had decided to stay at The Green Cornwall. As Mikey has food allergies, we always try to stay in a cottage when we go away.
We were not disappointed, in any way. The Green is beautiful and is so tranquil. As soon as we arrived, we felt so relaxed. There are 5 cottages and the house, but we felt as if we were the only ones there.
We stayed in cottage number 2 which sleeps 4, not including a baby. It was so comfy and really well equipped. We had the use of a fridge, freezer and a washer/dryer (which definitely came in handy with a baby!)
Also, for the rainy days, there were also plenty of books and DVDs to keep everyone entertained.
We also really appreciated the big box full of different leaflets and information on various attractions around Cornwall. This definitely came in handy when it rained one day and we had to change our plans.
We were also amazed at the amount of baby items we were offered free of charge during our stay. These included; bed guard, high chair, push chair, steriliser, and toys to list just a few. Plus, a travel cot came as standard in our cottage.
Set in fantastic grounds, The Green has a outdoor play area, a great woodland walk, a meadow, lake and fantastic views at 'make out point!'
It is located near the village of Rilla Mill, which is located centrally in Cornwall and we found it was really easy to get to The Eden Project and Newquay for days out. There is also great scenery all around.
I could wax lyrical about The Green, but I will just say in parting that it is a place that must be seen to be believed and must be experienced.
