18 October 2017


A couple of weeks back we made a list of all the places in Cornwall, many being National Trust locations, that we wanted to visit, either for the first time or to go back to because we loved it so much. The weather has been terrible every weekend since writing the list, but last weekend was dry and so we jumped at the chance to get out. I want to share some of the pictures with you because the places we went to were so gorgeous. I also made a video to go with this post too, which you can find at the very bottom!

This place is somewhere we visit a lot, as it is the place where you are guaranteed to see a seal (or fifty!). It is also the place where we made the decision to move to Cornwall. Last October we sat on the bench that faces out towards the lighthouse, snuggled together to keep warm, and said 'we need to do this don't we?' and now we are here. It is a special place to visit (plus the beach cafe does amazing breakfasts!).

It's shameful the amount of places in Cornwall we haven't yet visited in the (almost) twelve months since we moved here. Poldhu Cove is past Helston and about a half an hour or so drive away from our little village, but it was more than worth it. I initially found Poldhu on Instagram, after seeing Poldhu Beach Cafe sharing images of their amazing hot chocolates (see below for my choice... Reeces!). The pictures say it better than I ever could, it was so beautiful. If you get a chance to visit then you certainly should and take some time to walk the coast path up to the left of the cafe too; the views are stunning. PS: Poldhu Cafe sell some bloomin' amazing bobble hats (which you can also get on-line), I was a lucky girl and got treated to one and I am in love with it!

Penrose Hill was just as stunning as I had imagined it would be, more so actually, with beautiful woodland, surrounding Cornwalls largest natural lake, and even coastal views to top off the already impressive list of scenery! This is a dogs happy place, and there were many happy dogs sniffing about on Sunday, tails high and noses low! As much as I love to be surrounded by sea views, I also have 'a thing' for trees. They have a power and a strength that I can feel within my soul when I walk among them and they bring a peace to my mind which I can't explain. This place is so close to home and I will definitely be going back many more times in the future.

  1. Oh Lucy what beautiful pictures, you've made me long for wrapping up warm, donning thick walking socks and boots and wander off along the Cornish coast!!
