A few of my favourite things #68

I haven't written one of these posts for a couple of weeks as I've been busy with my 12 Days of Christmas giveaways (you could still win a Slow Box, a mistletoe bracelet or a copy of my book of the year: The Displaced).

Tremenheere Kitchen, Penzance

Exploring Cornwall: Tremenheere Kitchen

A few weeks ago I headed over to the Tremenheere Kitchen for the first time. Yes, I've lived in Penzance for nearly all of my 30 years on this planet and had never been to the Sculpture Gardens or this incredible restaurant.

Polgoon Vineyard and Orchard: A tour, taster and giveaway

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.
