St. Ives Craft Retreat: Concluding Days

Hi bloggers, so yesterday morning we had to say goodbye to our lovely ladies after three amazing fun packed days. We made time to take a few pictures with the sea view in the background (a view we had been lucky to look out all week) before they departed. Just before they left they surprised us with a little thank you gift which we are very grateful for and really touched us how much they enjoyed the Craft Retreat.

Beautiful chocolate slate from 'I Should Coco' in St. Ives.

Angela's flight didn't depart until the early evening so we spent the morning perusing the shops once again around St. Ives. This time we found a lovely little cafe called The Courtyard Tea Room, up a little alleyway from the main street, serving amazing homemade cakes and lite bites with great friendly service and relaxing music in the background.  Definitely be going back there again!

In the afternoon we headed over to Wadebridge for a little meander around the town before heading over to Newquay Airport to drop Angela off for her flight home.

Today was our last day in St. Ives so we got up early to make the most of it and headed to the Barbara Hepworth Gallery for a bit of culture.

It was back to back blue skies again today, making it even harder for us to have to head home tomorrow.

After we finished our mooch around the shops we quickly nipped over to St. Michael's Mount in Marazion again for a quick visit to the Island Gift Shop to pick up a few last minute pressies and then we headed over to Penzance for an Afternoon Tea we had pre-booked a month ago, making use of a voucher we had been given a while ago.

The voucher was to be used at 'Hotel Penzance', which is a beautiful contemporary hotel with lovely views across Penzance Bay.

We had a beautiful selection of cakes to choose from and everything was presented in such a beautiful way. Check out the view we had below...

This was a beautiful end to such an amazing and wonderful trip and we can't wait to do it again!
