18th August 2013 Constantine Bay

Whilst in Hereford, we were advised to visit Constantine Bay so off we went.  It is on the north Cornwall coast on route to Padstow, and has plenty of parking (Cornish style).  We parked in the village and had a 15 minute walk down to the beach past Treglos Hotel.

You end up walking through a narrow footpath, only to be stunned by the beautiful coastline that this beach is sited along. It is much more rugged than Watergate and the waves were crashing over the beach, the spray crashing against the rocks.

There is a lovely coastal path to the left where you can walk and also rest awhile, with many a bench to sit on and enjoy the scenery.

P1290206   P1290203   P1290201

There are sand dunes at the rear of the beach and further along there is a natural pool where you can swim, cut out of the rock face. There is a beautiful private residence along the coastline that allows you a glimpse of their views through their garden gate…just stunning.


About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
