You can't tell from google where is quiet and where is not, thats why personal recommendations were asked for. I would suggest on the Lizard, but I've never rented a B&B down there.

Bizzarre to take a cake to a restaurant anyway.
Why not go the whole hog and pitch up with your own wine, buffet, cake and coffee in a flask?

You're quite right - the term "property ladder" has lost its original meaning and really doesn't work anymore due to very low wage inflation.

True:D
