For my convenience

Visited Cotehele, a National Trust property near Plymouth. You have to choose a bright day as there is no lighting in the property.

After, a trip to Looe. This is a small fishing town – famous for it’s fish which is all sold on the day it is caught (the boats don’t go out for days on end and freeze their catches like many other places). So it was very disappointing to find there was nowhere offering the local fish on their lunchtime menu. Unfortunately it seems that Looe attracts the kind of visitors who like places like Blackpool. There main road is busy and packed with mediocre shops – the menus all seem to be based around chips. Through all the tat, you can just about see a what could have been a delightful little town.
