A perfect example of this is the Fern Pit Café, nestled on the river bank between Pentire and Crantock beach in Newquay.
I had a day off this week and decided to try somewhere new and since the Fern Pit Cafe is so close to home it was the ideal place.
There is a small car park close by and then a little walk to the café, the tables and chairs that are dotted around the luscious greenery, it makes you feel like you’re the only ones there!
The café itself is small but this creates a cosy atmosphere to enjoy your lunch. The menu is bursting with locally sourced ingredients, including fresh hand caught seafood (their crab sandwich is extremely popular!)
After much deliberation, I went for the chicken sandwiches with a salad – delicious! To walk off your meal, you could head down to the small beach and catch the ferry over to Crantock if you wanted.
This café is the perfect afternoon lunch spot which is away from the hustle and bustle of other visitors, with great food and stunning views! I will be a regular visitor to the Fern pit now and I recommend everyone visits too.
