I will be going to a get together on saturday where Rose's (my wife ) sister will be, so I will have a chat with her about it. I'll get her on the case about accommodation, places that are open and see if she knows of any discount entry prices on the gardens etc.

Hi guys
Talked with my sister in law about this meet-up and she said that she'll keep a look out for any deals when she gets back down there on thursday. What would most people prefer -guest house /b&b or hotel and what sort of price bracket are we looking at?

Only just seen this thread...

Make it any time during the first 3 weeks in May and I'd be able to join you - at least for one day.

We're staying near Padstow from the 1st May .....

I was going to ask later on if anyone would be in that area during that time.

As long as it`s clean, got a bed and a roof, windows etc and is near a pub, that`ll do me! ;D

(I`m easily pleased!!) ::)

B&B would keep the costs down, although depending on numbers, might struggle to find one that`ll cope with us all.

Carol,

sadly this meet is rather set at this date - but i do not think you will be alone.

Start a thread asking who is based or lives around the Cornwall area. You might be surprised. If you haven't been to Padstow before be prepared for a really slow and windy journey. It is not a good road to or from Padstow.

You might even get a meet going wih people who can not attend this meeting but can make it down for a day. I would certainly give you a look if the day is right.

OK,

so far as accommodation goes, Martin is right in that B&B will keep costs down.
We will be getting up early one of the mornings to catch the sun rise whilst also being out late enough to catch the sunset.
We are realistically looking at about half a dozen as the number tops so a B&B might be able to accommodate where as a hotel will accommodate but probably at a slightly higher cost!

As for pubs, they are as frequent as cream teas in Cornwall! 1 for the men, and 1 for the ladies  :tup: :beer:

OK, will do :)

It's about our 580th visit to the same place. I think the car would get there without us  8) Those little narrow roads are really a horror to drive, especially in a LHD car. After taking the wing mirror off a Volvo a couple of years back, I drive as far as Exeter and hubby continues. That way there are no argument  ;D

I'll certainly try to get something set up - I can't come to the UK for three weeks and not meet up with any of you !

I know it's a closed thread, but unfortuantely as much as I would love to join you neither my holiday allowance or finances will allow it at the moment.
