Mad Hatters

I’ve just got back to work after a very pleasant break in Cornwall and felt the need to talk about two fantastic experiences during our holiday.
The cottage we stayed in has only just opened for bookings and yet was absolutely superb, surpassing all our expectations. The owners were just next door, very helpful when we needed them, but not at all intrusive. The location (Luckett, near Callington) was very quiet and relaxing, but still easy to get to all the beaches and attractions that we wanted to visit. The cottage was very spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished – really making us feel comfortable. The equipment was all first rate too. if you’re looking for a quiet destination on the Devon / Cornwall borders drop me a line and I’ll send you the contact details.
We visited Launceston one day and were drawn to the Mad Hatters cafe which specialises in Gluten Free food – one of our daughters has Coeliac Disease and as a consequence has never had a Cornish Pasty before! The owners were very friendly and I’m assured that the gluten free pasty was great. if you order in advance you can arrange to collect many of their gluten free products to take away and/or freeze. This was a delightful contrast with Padstow, where despite all the gastronomic efforts of Rick Stein, there was not a single gluten free pasty to be found.
