Cornish Delights: Top 5

After a lovely relaxing and action – packed week in Cornwall with Al and his family, I thought I would share with you all, some of the best things to see, do and eat next time you are in the area. If you would like any further information on each place then all you have to do is either click on the picture or relevant link – Enjoy!

Exploring the Mediterranean biome.

2 Fore Street

At the top of my list has to be this lovely little restaurant situated in Mousehole. Whilst, the waiting times were rather long, the food was defiantly worth waiting for. Not only was the ambience incredibly relaxing , it also provided the perfect laid back vibe for a 30th Birthday celebratory meal during our stay. Of Course, the high standard of the food and the incredible flavours did entice me and may have resulted in me sampling a few more dishes less than 24 hours later.

Eden Project

After visiting the tropical rainforests of eden just over two-year’s ago, I was incredibly excited to discover that my favourite attraction in Cornwall had also extended their sky walkway and despite being disappointed with the rainforest lookout being closed due to high levels of humidity, the wobbly bridge and steam clouds more than made up for this. I thoroughly enjoyed my last day in Cornwall at this stunning place and the pasta at their Med Terrace restaurant in the mediterranean biome was both reasonable in price and delicious. Of course, no trip to eden is complete without a Roskilly’s ice cream and a visit to the gift shop.

Minack Theatre

After walking down to the gorgeous beach of Porthcurno and sampling a Cornish cream tea, I thought my day couldn’t get any better. But once I had reached the top, the views were absolutely breathtaking and the theatre visit was an educational experience that was surprisingly very enjoyable. This is defiantly a place worth exploring for the views alone and at £5 per adult this is a great day out if you are on a tight budget.

St Michael’s Mount

The walk along the causeway was an experience in itself and once I Stepped onto St Michael’s mount it was as though I had been transported through time, I was greeted with cobbled lined streets, stunning gardens filled with an abundance of flowers, trees and plants and a 17th Century castle. Whilst, the prices to explore the castle are a very respectable £9.50 per adult, it is worth considering signing up to the national trust membership if you plan on visiting more of their attractions. Me and Al decided to sign up for as little as £9 a month for both of us and it meant that we can visit over 500 of the national trust sites as many times as we want throughout the year at no extra cost. It also includes free parking, a handbook to help us plan our trips as well as many other exclusive offers.

St Ives

This picturesque fishing village and seaside town is the perfect place to enjoy a pint or simply explore the independent boutiques and shops. The St Ives Bay line also offers a scenic route from as little as £4 return during off – peak times.

Cornwall has always been a favourite place of mine since I was a child. However, Cornwall has not only captured my heart but it has also left me with lasting memories that are sure to stay with me in many years to come. Have you been to Cornwall? I would love to hear any recommendations that you may have, as me and Al are planning another visit later this year as we can’t wait to go back!

Love Emma
