Cornwall Holiday – Day 8, Last Day

First off to visit Tintagel Castle, but on the way, Breakfast at McDonalds again! Next Boscastle to see how the regeneration is going. I was not too impressed with the rebuilt Pixie Cottage – the new building looks more like a chapel. Finally, the official end to the Holiday, a crab sandwich and a pint

Cornwall Holiday – Day 7

Too much sun yesterday, so no beach today. First off, Trevarno Gardens – I’ve been to most of the other gardens in Cornwall, but this was up there with the best of them, an unexpected high-light.

Next, Poldark Mine, one of those places that look really tacky in the brochures. I had pinned my

Cornwall Holiday – Day 6

Too much sun! Spent most of the day at my favourite beach, Kynance Cove. Everytime I go there I see lots of people get cut off by the tide – today was no exception. I ended the day at the Lizard. I walked down to LIzard Point, then back to the village for some excellent

At last, the day starts sunny! Off to Prussia Cove (for the first time in 30 years) for 4 hours on the beach. Then, onto Goonhilly Earthstation. I pass it twice a day so it was about time I visited. And finally, as it’s still sunny, a stroll around the caravan site and a

Cornwall Holiday – Day 4

Mild weather, but the sun never never quite managed to burn off the mist. Started the day at Sennen and walked along the coastal path to Land’s End. After, a trip to the Minack theatre, built into the cliffs at Porth Curno. This was my third visit to this theatre and it struck me how

Misty start again but I know this Cornish Weather. Headed out to Zennor and after an hour or so the sun broke though. Spent the second half of the day on the beach at Carbis Bay

Cornwall Holiday – Day 2

The weather precludes most of the planned activities. Thick fog makes coastal path too dangerous so I head off to Falmouth. By 11:00 the sky is clearing, but as I’m here I decide to stay in the area and head off to Pendennis Castle. As the weather is holding out I end the day
