I was so excited to visit the Eden Project, I'd been as a child and couldn't wait to go again. We'd picked up the Gardeners' World magazine in May 2015 (you can order a back issue here), which had a 2 for 1 card in for over 300 gardens across the UK.

You know those days when the weather isn't meant to be anything special, then it turns out to be such a hot day and you're dressed inappropriately? That happened to us. My husband went out wearing jeans and I had tights and multiple layers thanks to breastfeeding - we were hot to say the least. Despite that we had a lovely day going north from our cottage, rather than our usual route south. Firstly, we visited Ilfracombe for a wander, a delicious lunch at The Tea Rooms and tasty Hockings ice-cream.

We weren't planning on visiting St Ives because it was about 1.5 hours further south than where we were staying. However we decided we'd only regret it if we didn't pay it a visit, I wanted to take Isabella to the place my husband proposed to me. It was so nice walking around St Ives, reminiscing and grabbing a burger and THE best nachos at Hub, overlooking the harbour. It doesn't look very sunny in these pictures but it was so hot - keeping Isabella cool enough has become a daily challenge at the moment! Any tips would be welcomed?

I didn't really know what to expect from Padstow, I'd never been and only really heard the hype around how many restaurants Rick Stein has got there. However, when we arrived (on one of the hottest days of the year so far) and wandered around I soon fell in love - it's so beautiful. It reminds me a lot of St Ives, lots of cute shops, places to eat and a stunning harbour area. We had probably the best takeaway I've ever had from Rick Steins Fish and Chip takeaway. I had the vegetarian option, of a Halloumi burger, which was incredible! Highly recommend it if you pay a visit to Padstow.

My grandparents live down in Devon, so we thought we'd make the most of being down there and introduce Isabella to them. It's so lovely seeing other people show their love for Isabella, it means the world. We had a delicious lunch and catch up, before heading back to the cottage. On the way back we decided to visit Sandymouth beach, which was only 5 minutes away from our cottage in Kilkhampton. Sandymouth is a gem of a beach, it does have a pretty steep hill down to it but once you're there it's stunning. Vast areas of soft sand, pebbles and rockpools - plenty of places for children to explore. We meant to go back later in the holiday with a picnic but ran out of time, so that's on the list next time we visit Cornwall.
