Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

I love The Mexico Inn. It's no longer my local so I relish any opportunity to go back. When The Range opened a few weeks ago I made sure to pop up to check it out on a Tuesday so that I had the perfect excuse to go over the road and introduce my mum… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The best fish and chips!

Exploring Cornwall: Trevaskis Farm

I've blogged and Instagrammed my Trevaskis Farm visits before but it's mainly been food porn and the odd animal. Today the farm is getting its own blog post because I recently had one of my best days with Jenson ever - and I know we'll have plenty more awesome family days out there. The best… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Trevaskis Farm

Exploring Cornwall: The Alverton, Truro

Last summer I was invited to The Alverton in Truro to sample their afternoon tea selection and it was a welcome treat, with Jenson a mere four weeks old. This summer I was invited back* to try an evening meal - and I was not disappointed. My mum came over to watch Jenson so we… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The Alverton, Truro

Exploring Cornwall: Seal Sanctuary

Tucked away in an industrial state in Gweek (near Helston, Cornwall) is the Seal Sanctuary, a wonderful charity and retirement home and hospital for old and wounded seals. Pretty cool, huh! Until a few weeks ago, I hadn't been in well over a decade, and thought it would be a fun family day out for… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Seal Sanctuary

Exploring Cornwall: The Mexico Inn, Longrock

On Saturday we had our first date night in god knows how long (we saw an afternoon film on 13 June for Luke's birthday and before that I think it was to see Civil War in the evening...?) and it was awesome. My mum and aunt came over to watch Jenson while we headed out… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The Mexico Inn, Longrock

Exploring Cornwall: The Eden Project – Dinosaurs Unleashed!

This week I have family visiting from over the bridge - the perfect excuse to get out and be a tourist! Yesterday we went to The Eden Project to have a nose around - and check out the dinosaurs! The ones hiding out at Paradise Park at the moment are pretty cool but Eden's promised… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: The Eden Project – Dinosaurs Unleashed!

Exploring Cornwall: Nanjizal Beach

I can remember going to an amazing beach when I was younger, about 12 or so (so we're talking a good 14 years ago). It was the kind of beach that you saw on holiday programmes, with golden sand and perfectly clear water - definitely not the kind of place you think you'd find in… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Nanjizal Beach

Exploring Cornwall: Coastal walk through Mousehole and Newlyn with lunch at the Rock Pool Cafe

My grandad is buried in Paul so whenever I pop up to say hi with my mum during the summer, we tend to make a day of it and walk down into Mousehole. It's a gorgeous village which gets really busy with tourists in the summer and locals at Christmas (the lights are the best… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Coastal walk through Mousehole and Newlyn with lunch at the Rock Pool Cafe

Exploring Cornwall: Paradise Park and Duckie’s Vintage Tearoom in Hayle

Hello four days of freedom! The weather app reckons it's gonna be four days of rain but I won't let that kill my buzz. Especially as it started out so well. We started out with a lie-in and lazy morning while we waited to see what the weather decided to do. It kept holding out… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Paradise Park and Duckie’s Vintage Tearoom in Hayle

Exploring Cornwall: Taking the scenic route through St Just and Cape Cornwall

We did something a bit different on Sunday. As we don't have a car, we rarely get to see places around Cornwall that aren't easy to reach via public transport. The boyfriend's dad is in a camera club and took us along on one of their excursions. The boyfriend is a bit of a photography… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Taking the scenic route through St Just and Cape Cornwall
