Cornwall local reveals why NOT to visit in summer hols – with £10 fish & chips, huge queues and fully booked restaurants | The Sun

A CORNISH local revealed why visiting for the summer holidays this year should be avoided.

Lee Trewhela explained that he decided to take his daughters on holiday to one of the nearby fishing villages.

He wrote on Cornwall Live that he did what every "sane Cornish person avoids" which is visiting the tourist spots during what they all "silly season".

He said the trouble started when arriving at Mevagissey, a small fishing village.

He warned: "The trouble came on arriving in Meva – the main car park on Valley Road was full and as a result cars were queuing on the road into the village."

Not only were there queues, but most of the overspill car parks are full by lunchtime.

He also said that while it was great to have independent shops, don't expect to enjoy them without spending the cash.

Some of the "shocking" prices included a £12.50 crab sandwich, and a small fish and chips for nearly a tenner.

And he added: "Unsurprisingly, it was almost impossible to get into the popular dining spots."

Despite the busy roads and restaurants, he admitted that tourists were giving the economy a "huge lift" and enjoyed seeing all kinds of tourists from Europe, Australia and the US there.
