Welcome to our Accommodation Office blog. Find out the latest about life on campus, what’s happening in Cornwall and how we can help make your time here the best of your life.
We thought we would give you a little insight into our team and what we love about living in this outstanding part of the country.
Rebecca Mackay – Roberts (Accommodation Officer)
I love snorkelling around Pendennis Point in Falmouth, there is nothing better than when the sea warms up, sticking on my fins and mask and checking out the deep Cornish blue. Wildlife seen: Lobsters, crabs, seals, starfish, pollock, wrasse and cuttlefish. It’s free, easy to get to from both campuses and a great way to end a busy day.
Richard Wilkins (Private Sector Liaison Officer)
Like many people down here (yes I’m a Brummie-in-exile) I moved to Cornwall lured by the, almost clichéd, laid back, beachcomber, coastal walk, VW camper van and if-you’re-fond-of-sand-dunes-and-salty-air lifestyle (oh, and the pasties of course)! And guess what….I found Cornwall is pretty much like that! Well Falmouth certainly is! There’s plenty to do but I find Cornwall a great place to be when you’ve got very little to do too!
Teresa Smith (Accommodation Officer)
One of my favourite places in Cornwall is Godrevy, a beautiful, sandy beach with high cliffs and dramatic coves at the far end of St Ives bay. Not only is there a fab little café but it’s also great for spotting sunbathing seals from the cliff tops either in the water or on the secluded beaches below.
Claire Rolfe (Accommodation Officer)
Cornwall is a great place to live in both the Winter and Summer months. On a sunny winters day I love nothing more than getting wrapped up and taking a walk on the coast, the scenery can be so dramatic at that time of the year especially when the sea is smashing against the rocks and cliffs. After a walk I like to warm up with one of the many amazing Sunday pub roasts the area has to offer. In the Summer I love finishing the working day with a swim in the sea and a BBQ on the beach! There is always somewhere new to explore in Cornwall and I love finding amazing places that usually turn out to be just down the road!
Robyn Chesterman (Accommodation Office Manager)
After a busy day on Campus I love to get my running shoes on and hit the coastpath. My usual route takes me around the famous Pendennis Castle, along Falmouth’s popular Gylly Beach and onwards along the coast towards the Helford River. I love how different the coast feels every time I run. By the sea nothing stays the same for long.
Cornwall is your oyster… there is so much to see and do here, you will find yourself struggling to fit it all in.
