Last Monday we packed our bags (Dave & I) and headed to Cornwall of a couple of days away in a beautiful 1930's Gypsy Caravan named "The Rambling Rose" for my 27th Birthday!

Getting away from it all, quite literally, for a few days was just what we needed and I felt revived!

Here is a little photo diary of our time away!

Our view over Lostwithiel

The only remaining original 1930's paintwork.

We spent an afternoon checking out Lostwithiel which was full of medieval history and quirky little antique shops, which I love to nose around!

My lovely Birthday gift from Dave!

On our second last night we ventured out in search of a beach and real fish & chips! Our quest took us to the beautiful harbour of Fowey, which was a really beautiful little nook!

The only Beach we found!

Wednesday was my birthday and our last morning in the Caravan, Dave cooked me venison/duck/pheasant/brandy & orange sausages on the open fire for breakfast! Perfect! We then headed to Falmouth for the afternoon and then finally spent our last night at Dave's Aunt & Uncle's place nearby.

Cornish Pasty!

My awesome birthday card's from Dave's little cousins Katie & Izzy!
I had a blissful time and would highly recommend the caravan to anyone!
