Anyone who makes me feel unwelcome certainly won't enjoy my custom.
You've let your guard slip on this one Timwbo.
You've dropped 'Rock/Padstow' as if to impress, the place is a joke. Of course you're getting cash ripped out of your pocket, that's the whole point the place.
It won't be 'locals' doing the ripping either, they were driven/priced out of the area years ago. It'll be incomer fleasing visitor as it usually is.
FYI Tim, if you're looking for a Cornish holiday destination which has some cachet to impress your home counties pals, don't bother with the North coast.
As a rule of thumb..
Newquay/Perranporth- Bucket and spade Northerners.
Rock/Padstow/Polzeath- Flash new money, drive RR Sport in white.
Fowey/St.Mawes/Helford- Posh old money, been holidaying in same place for generations.
