I discovered Barefoot on Twitter. Can’t remember what the tweet was but followed the link to their website and bought a few Christmas presents. They have recently opened a cafe alongside their shop. Barefoot is in Gunwalloe, a small village near the Culdrose airbase just outside of Helston. Perched on top of the hill overlooking the Atlantic off the Lizard, the small cafe is in a light filled lofted room. It’s a family business , one daughter takes the orders and serves in the cafe, the other tots up the bill in the shop. Food is simple – paninis and soup, tea, coffee, Luscombes juices and cakes.
The shop sells Cornish made wooden plates, homemade chilli jam, aprons, belly boards and my Christmas purchases, enamel milk pans and mugs for serving hot chocolate on the beach. These come with square lumps of chocolate on sticks to put into hot milk.
I’m envious of Barefoot. A great position on the coast, and a very simple uncluttered life.
