north cornwall coast
We spent a lovely week in North Cornwall. We were staying in a little converted barn on a small holding near St Agnes. It was right on the coastal path, so we could step out the front door, down a hawthorn track, over the heather covered moors and on to the sea. The Sea was just magical! One of our favourite beaches was called Chapel Porth which also had a friendly café serving crab sandwiches and homemade ice creams.
The coastal path was lined with these pretty pink flowers called Thrift, we walked seven miles to Trevaunance Cove, in St Agnes. which was beautiful.
We loved lighting this little log burner every evening and cooking dinner as the wind and rain rolled in off the sea.
St Agnes was a great base to explore North Cornwall. We spent a day in St Ives, visiting the Tate and watching the surfers, lunch at The Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac, fish & chips at the famous Stein's in Padstow, took the ferry to Trelissick house and gardens, walked along the estuary at Crantock and had a picnic on the sand dunes, walked along the coastal path to No4 Peterville and had the most delicious dinner. I've just realised that our holiday mainly consisted of walking and eating...well they are my two favourite things.
