We’ve just returned from a few days in Cornwall. We stayed in Hayle, which is nice and close to St. Ives. Several buses run from there along the coast roads and into St. Ives. We spent three days travelling all over the place by bus, stopping wherever we fancied as we knew the next bus would be along in an hour or so. On the remaining two days, we used the car to visit Mousehole, Marizone (St. Michael’s Mount) and enjoyed walking the Coast Path from the car park by the Godrevy Café via the Godrevy headland to the incredible Hell’s Mouth and back again. A well-deserved snack and drink greeted us at the Godrevy Café (worth a visit even if you don’t want to do the walk). Another much-enjoyed visit was to Charlestown formerly knows as West Polmear about a mile outside St. Austell. If you are interested in seeing an unspoiled example of a late Georgian working port, this is the place to go. It’s better known these days for being one of the locations used in the filming of Poldark. Charlestown harbours a fleet of square riggers although there was only one in when we visited. Sitting outside a pub with a cup of tea and a delicious Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie remains one of the delicious highlights of the holiday.
