ABOUT BAREFOOT CORNWALL
Barefoot Cornwall features content created by the team at Barefoot Media and our wider network of friends and associates.
We set up this blog to give us somewhere to share stories and knowledge about the bits of Cornwall we experience year round, outside the office.
Jim is the managing director of Cornish public relations agency Barefoot Media.
What is your favourite season in Cornwall and why?
Autumn because the water is warmer and the beaches are much less crowded. Also you can take your pick of the amazing restaurants in Cornwall without having to wait weeks to get a table.
Ellie is a director at Barefoot Media.
What is your favourite way to spend an evening in Cornwall?
My perfect evening would be a Friday in June. Jim and I would collect the children from school and take them to Watergate Bay to mess around in the sea. Then we, and lots of friends, would head up to The Living Space, where we would colonise the tables on the deck, gorge on lobster and chips, and watch the sunset, chilled white in hand.
Charlotte is senior account manager at Barefoot Media.
What is on your hitlist in Cornwall for 2015?
A feast night at The Hidden Hut, supper at The Driftwood and a stay at The Gurnard’s Head are all on my hitlist for next year. I have yet to make it to the Isles of Scilly so that is top of places for a trip next spring. I also intend to learn to surf but think it might be best to wait until the weather warms up a little!
Chris is account manager at Barefoot Media.
What is your favourite place to eat breakfast in Cornwall?
The brilliant Relish in Wadebridge would get my vote every time. The food is great, but the coffee is something else – no day can begin without a cappuccino (or three!) from the award-winning barista and owner Hugo.
Zoë is junior account executive at Barefoot Media.
Where are your favourite independent shops in Cornwall?
My top finds are MMV at Revolver in Newquay, Jo & Co near Wadebridge and Roo’s Beach in Porth. Bruce Crantock’s tiny jewellery workshop in St Agnes is filled with one-off designs that you won’t find anywhere else, and I could buy most of the reclaimed furniture from Goose Shed if I had somewhere to put it.
Esme was junior account manager at Barefoot Media until June 2015.
What’s your favourite place in Cornwall and why?
The stretch of South West Coast Path between Newquay and Watergate Bay. The uninterrupted views of the ocean means its my favourite running route, even if it can be a little hilly at times.
Kaylie was account executive at Barefoot Media until July 2015.
What is your favourite thing about living in Cornwall?
For me, it has to be the eclectic range of art galleries, craft shops and vintage boutiques. You can spend endless weekends exploring one-of-kind places for rare finds. Cornwall really flies the flag for individuality, and every town has something to offer.
Kate was account manager at Barefoot Media until September 2014.
What would be your idea of a perfect day in Cornwall?
The sun would be shining so I’d get up reasonably early and go for a run. We’d eat brunch in the garden with the papers and then pack up the car with camping stuff. We’d stock up on meat from the local butchers before heading to Gwenver Beach near Sennen with a big bunch of friends. An ideal afternoon would be spent surfing and relaxing on the beach, followed by a BBQ and a few ciders whilst the sun goes down.
