We stayed in St Ives, which is a picturesque town in South West England (Cornwall). 20 of us spent a week down there over the Xmas period, staying in various cottages. Here's ours:

Down on the beach, my Mum commented that it was a wonder the houses don't get washed away in heavy seas!

The port on the south side of St Ives
We checked out a gallery, I sneakily took a pic of what I thought was the coolest painting there:
On one of the days we were there, we drove to Padstow, a wee harbour town:
It was very touristy, and full of dogs...
The harbour made for a fantastic night time panorama:
And we had a great meal at the Rick Stiens seafood restaurant, mmm, scallops!
Some of the guys and I took off or a game of golf:
for a cheapo £10 a round course, it had a stunning view over St Ives!
There was also a castle there too:
More great pics on the next page!
