Camping or comfort? I know what I would choose!


A few weeks ago I reviewed The Salt Path by Raynor Winn. The story told of Ray and Moth’s journey along the South West Coast path after becoming homeless.  


They wild-camped for a year pitching their tent on the top of a cliff, in all weathers, sometimes sleeping in their clothes to keep warm. If you like the idea of walking part of the South West Coastal path – originally created by coastguards to prevent smuggling – but are not keen campers, I know a wonderful place to stay.


The Old School House Holiday Cottages are owned by my longtime friends Angela and Daniel Simkin.


They have three superb holiday cottages located along the coastal path near Boscastle and I can highly recommend staying with them. Angela and Daniel are wonderful people and will do their upmost to ensure you have a perfect stay.



The cottages are immaculate and well equipped with stunning views of the countryside and the sea.  They are ideally situated for walking holidays or could be the perfect place for a writing retreat. The beach at Crackington Haven is just a fifteen minute walk away.
