Living and working by the coast was one of the reasons why we moved down to Cornwall. We are never more at peace than when we are looking out to sea, splashing in the waves or hunting the rocks for sea creatures, so when we were looking for new locations to sell our flapjacks, the beach was an obvious choice. The next decision we had to make was, where.
Again, for us, this was obvious. We visited Duckpool (between Morwenstow and Sandymouth) many times before as it is a great beach for all, dogs, children and grown ups, with lots of space to explore. After lots of discussions and meetings with the National Trust team we were given the license to trade there. We got the van ready, became baristas and took to the beach.
So far it has been great, being welcomed by locals, holiday makers, surfers and walkers. We have even met Jim Morton, who is walking the UK coastline!! We have all enjoyed spending our weekends at the beach, even the fury flapjackers. We can't wait for the rest of the summer.
Are you going to come and join us and spend time at the beach this summer? You will find us here on Friday, Saturday and Sunday until at least the end of September, except for the last Saturdays of the month.
Whether you are a walker, a swimmer, a surfer, a rock-pooler or just want to take time to enjoy your surroundings, then Duckpool has it covered, and now includes great tea and coffee and the best, award winning flapjacks. Don't believe us?? Come and join us or take a look at the pictures below.
