Cornish Food & Drink
Cornwall is becoming more and more famous for it’s food. There are lots of places to indulge in a pub lunch, a cream tea or a cheeky pasty. Here are a few tried and tested suggestions for places close to Coombe Farm Cottages, and a bit further afield…
Romantic Picnic Spot - High Cliff
On the cliffs between Boscastle and Crackington Haven at the highest point, you will find the straightforwardly named – High Cliff. Cornwall’s highest cliff is 224m above sea level. Given the size of the cliffs, as you would expect the views are massive. It feels like you can see the whole of Cornwall. It’s a beautiful spot well worth exploring.
Awesome Autumnal Activities. Take your pick from: Food & drink, coasteering, mining, quilting, literature or walking the cliff path.
The Coombe Farm Vegetable patch, supervised by Sally, is getting bigger and better every year. At the moment we are enjoying a glut of tomatoes. We’ve a variety of yellow and red, small and large. They taste fantastic, we’ve been eating lots of sunny tomato salads and tomato soup.

The sun is shining, the leaves are turning the trees green, flowers are popping up in all the fields and hedgerows, it’s time to get out and about with a spring in your step! Here are a fantastic selection of some of the top favourite things we have discovered so far on our Cornish adventures…
Summerleaze Beach has a unique appeal as it has the River Neet with it’s bobbing sailing boats and the impressive breakwater making the beach popular with families and surfers. It provides a very sheltered environment for swimming or boarding. There are beach huts available to rent which give it a very English feel. Ella and William love a game of hide and seek in the well established sand dunes. There is a large car park nearby, and beach lifeguards in summer. Dogs are allowed on Summerleaze Beach all year, though they must be on leads May-September.
Roughtor at Bodmin Moor, Tintagel, Cream Teas, Ponies and of course… the beach, that’s what Coombe Farm Cottage half terms are made of.
As it is the season of traditional over indulgence we’ve been thinking a lot about food. We are all big lovers of food. We try to buy local food if possible as not only is it the right thing to do, Cornish food is very yummy. One of the best places to start is the home of food hero, Rick Stein.
