From one beach to another, I’m full of cold and back from Greece, which is experiencing climate change in the form of abnormally turbulent weather, and heading to Cornwall for next weekend.
I haven’t been there since ‘Straw Dogs’ put me off, but now I believe it’s all Rick Stein restaurants and millionaires’ homes. Certainly, it seems to be the most expensive staycation you can take. I used to drive down for the weekend and stay at a B&B for virtually nothing. Now it costs more than a trip to Spain. But I’m doing a little research and need to stay overnight.
Clearly an influx of outside money does nothing for Cornish towns, as Cornwall remains the poorest county in the country. There’s presumably no way they can compete with package holidays, and the weather is even more unreliable than Europe’s right now. I’ll be reporting back on what I find.
