1. Thee amazing coastline
Cornwall has thee most beautiful coastline, which you can explore on foot using the coastal path. You will embark on the most breathtaking views. I found myself completely lost and calmed, inside my own little bubble. All my worries seemed to just disappear.
From the coastal path to the beaches to the beach bars, this place is just perfect.
The day we walked the coastal path, we started at St.Agnes head and walked down to Chapel Porth beach and stopped for a coffee and then headed back up onto the coastal path, which then led us to Porthtowan beach where we inevitably stopped for an alcoholic beverage…and some insanely good chips.
After finishing our grub and meeting a little Boarder Terrier called Rosie, we headed back along the path. This path is never quiet, I suppose everyone loves it just as much as us. When we reached Chapel Porth, I got my towel out of my bag along with a drink each and we sat and watched a couple of surfers. I could watch surfers all day. I’ve promised myself that one day I’m getting in the water!
The beautiful yellow’s and pink’s look lovely, however look closely and you will find the worlds sharpest, pointiest bush things…they hurt, don’t sit on them like I did!
2. The incredible eateries, craft beers, ales and ciders
I am a huge lover of buying from small businesses and I can honestly say, I feel Cornwall is on my side with supporting the makers. From candles to Ales, I felt like Cornwall is proud of what it produces.
Whenever myself and A visit somewhere, we always like to try the local coffee shops and whilst in Cornwall we tried The Sorting Office in St. Agnes, after being recommended by A Local’s Guide to Cornwall (thank you again for this!). I have done a blog just on this amazing coffee house, please do go and check it out.
We also tried The Cornish Pizza Co. which I have to say was incredible. If you are staying around St.Agnes I would highly recommend this place. They have “Super Tuesday” where you can buy any two pizza’s for only £15!
A quick list of other places to visit, there are just too many to mention:
- Healey Cyder farm
- The Old School Bar and Kitchen
- Cornwall Gold (They do the best full English breakfast. We got one the morning we came home. It’s served on a shovel!)
- The Hub (This year we ate in The Hub in St ives and last year we went to the one in Truro. Fab menu both for food and drinks!)
- Johns off-licence (St Ives. This place sells every kind of alcoholic drink…Gin, Vodka, Cider, Ale…perfect).
3. The laid-back vibes
Put it this way, if you wanted to wear flip-flops in the snow,you can wear flip-flops in the snow. I just love it. It’s like a different world.
If this post doesn’t convince you that you need to get yourself onto Pure Cornwall website and book this as your next trip then you must be mad. Like seriously, go to see a Doctor because you must simply be insane. There is something for everyone here, dogs, children, couples, young and old. In my eyes it’s the place to be.
I hope you have enjoyed this post. It meant a lot writing it.
Happy Holiday booking,
With love, Saucy Anchor ⚓️
