Food | A Francophile's perfect picnic


We’re off to France later this month where we’ll be spending a week at Eurocamp as a family of seven. Euros are being hoarded for what will inevitably be a huge ice cream budget but with that many hungry mouths to feed we’ll be picnicking on the beach rather than tucking napkins in for some fine dining.

Travel | Barford luxury family holiday home in Cornwall

Barford, Cornwall - luxury holiday rental for families and big groups

‘I knew the family who used to live in that house!’ grinned my friend as we chatted in the school playground. She’d run after me to tell me, having seen a picture of Barford I’d posted on Instagram. ‘He was at school with me and always used to boast he had his own beach. We thought he was joking.’ No joke.
