Many people think that to have a good holiday you have to spend lots of money and go somewhere exotic. I found out this isn't the case when we drove down to Cornwall one half term. I have been surfing a few times and enjoy nothing more than spending hours trying to catch the perfect wave. The location of choice was a nice apartment in St Ives, one of the prettiest places I've ever been to in the UK. Cornwall is so pretty and Porthminster Beach is brilliant for surfing. We went on many coastal walks and although the weather was unpredictable, there is always something to do no matter if it is raining. When the sun is out I couldn't wish to be anywhere else but with my family through some fields there. Places in Cornwall tend to be large distances apart though so use of a car is important. If ever you are looking for a cheap getaway look no further than Cornwall you will want to come back as soon as you have left!
