Beach Retreat: A slow weekend in Cornwall

September 26, 2019
If you want to skip my memories of Cornwall (I can get a little carried away sometimes) and scroll straight to inspo for a nourishing and wholesome Cornish weekend please go right to paragraph 4! Above images curtesy of Visit Cornwall It can be easy to forgo Cornwall in favour of a firmer promise of sunshine from warmer climes but if you take a chance on Cornwall it will be in your heart forever. From as far back as I can remember and even before then every Summer since I was born started with the family trip to Rock – a village in North Cornwall on the north-eastern bank of the River Camel.… Continue reading...

Watergate Bay Hotel with MBFR

October 4, 2017
If you’ve read my previous posts you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Mountain Beach Fitness Retreats and you’ll know why. But there’s also the added allure of exceptional accommodation for each retreat you attend and Watergate Bay Hotel is no exception. The hotel’s USP is it’s situation right on Watergate Bay beach and it takes full advantage of this with its floor to ceiling windows allowing light to flood the pool and living areas. The sense of space and serenity that this creates is mesmerising. I could sit for hours watching the surfers paddle out to sea and ride the (huge) waves back into the beach and the happy families with their rosy-cheeked children and soggy, sandy dogs playing along the shoreline.… Continue reading...

But instead you’re once again put to the test. MBFR means sprinting  up hills, hiit circuits, hiking for hours on end, running, swimming, jumping, strengthening muscles, stretching and flexing – all within the most beautiful places on the planet staying in the most luxurious of hotels/chalets.… Continue reading...

ESC. to Cornwall with MBFR

September 27, 2017
They say a change is as good as a rest and in my experience “they” are right. The feeling of swapping the known for the unknown – be it people, place or situation – always fills me with energy and enthusiasm. I’d been looking forward to a long weekend in Cornwall with Mountain Beach Fitness Retreats for weeks. Cornwall has always held a special place in my heart. It defined my childhood summers with seemingly endless sunny days (OK, yes and a few washouts holed up inside playing board games but even then it still seemed perfect) spent surfing, cycling, playing crazy golf, going for long walks along the golden dunes, crab fishing, barbecues on the beach and of course Cornish cream teas and ice cream.… Continue reading...
