Horse riding on the beach is often associated with slow motion film scenes, moody music and perhaps even a throwback to the Black Beauty TV series. Here in Cornwall, it’s fairly common! The horse riding on Perranporth beach is particularly well renowned both as an enjoyable activity and as an activity provider.
People flock to Fowey in mid August for the week of the Fowey Royal Regatta. We’re not really into sailing but as one of the UK’s best known sailing events it was time to visit and find out more.We were unsure how well it would be tailored for all to enjoy, but we weren’t disappointed.
Out of season, on a quiet day, there’s something really rather appealing about a Cornwall road trip. If you’re able to share the driving, even better, so you can equally share the views. The ooo’s and ahh’s that tumble out without realising because yet another stunning vista has come into view!
St Michael’s Mount is probably Cornwall’s most iconic visitor attraction. This tidal island at Mount’s Bay is most closely associated with the seaside town of Marazion and our guests flock there all year round. I thought it about time I went and found out a little bit about it myself.
One of those rare occasions when my daughter was home in Cornwall and she deserved a treat. I wanted to do something that was both scrumptious and a little bit special, go somewhere with a view to remind her of glorious Kernow and that would enable us to stretch our Westie’s legs a little too – she is technically our daughter’s dog! Off we trundled…
I last went to The National Maritime Museum a few years ago as a helper on my children’s school trip. I wasn’t able to walk around and enjoy it as it was a structured school day. So I wanted to go back to take it all in for myself. This summer they had a Titanic Stories exhibition running too, so I thought this would be the best time to go.
Pencarrow House and Gardens is a stately home with Grade II listed garden. Beyond the headlines though it is also home to the Molesworth-St Aubyns family. Midway between Bodmin and Wadebridge it’s a quick and easy to reach day trip where horticultural awe and hide and seek can combine beautifully. Book in the grandparents for half term, would be my advice!
