What is your favourite thing to do whilst there?
So, the South West Coast Path runs around both Dorset and Cornwall, which I love for its guaranteed beautiful easy-to-follow walks with epic coastal scenery. I'm bad at maps and good at getting lost so maybe that's why I'm so enamoured by the Coast Path — you can't really go wrong! In Dorset, we did the National Trust South Purbeck Cliffs walk
and stopped for a swim at Dancing Ledge which was bliss — we'll definitely do that one again. Plus fish and chips in Swanage — we ate so many fish and chips on that trip!! Oh, and swimming under Durdle Door — a bucket-list swim for sure!
Other local tips?
For Cornwall, my treasured highlights are Carbis Bay (so tropical — it would pass for the Caribbean!), swimming in Jubilee Pool in Penzance (it was stormy and SO COLD but wildly invigorating!), and dinner at Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn (so good we tried to go on consecutive nights but they were full!).
