Carbis Bay
What does Cornwall look like out of season? Well. we visited one of the "Busy" beaches just outside of St Ives today - Carbis Bay beach with its powder soft sands, set in a bay flanked by the distant dunes of Hayle Towans. Not too bad for November I'd say!

Trebah one of Cornwall's Great Gardens

We explored Trebah garden again yesterday, as the golden leaves of autumn swirled around our feet. This magnificent garden is in a lush sheltered river valley running down to the sea and it coaxes you along is well manicured paths with all of the authority of a vintage Rolls Royce. Walk from the palms at the top of the garden down through the valley, with the accompanying gurgle of water passing through the gardens heart, until finally the sound of the waves landing on the shore below signal the Helford river and the sea.
Trebah is so evocative of the world's of Rosamunde Pilcher and Daphne de Maurier in my imagination yet hiding a sad memory of the men that left the rarefied world one dark night for the D day landings and suffered more than 80% casualties. To read my full blog

A layby with a great view!?

Does any body have any walking tips about how to reach Rogers Tower -
To cut a long story short (ish) Our New Zealand guests said sadly as they left they hadn't been able to find "Rogers Tower" Later we did a quick Google search and found it was a folly built within the earth works of Castle and Dinas. An ordinance survey map laterm we were off with a picnic and walked and walked around the edge of the working quarry, on through the bog, on down the hill etc etc until Charles became anxious we wouldn't be back in time for check in so we retraced our steps back to the car and parked in a scenic lay, by perched high above Mounts Bay with views to The Lizard through the haze to munch sandwiches. We've decide it may be best to approach from the Nancledra direction unless anybody has some tips about how to get to Rogers Tower? Other than that I can recommend a fairly scenic lay by

Lanyon Qoit

Just beside the road above Madron Lanyon Qoit on the spare moors above Penzance. It was thought to have once been a burial mound that has now eroded to show the "bones" of the construction. Explore some of the ancient sites of West Cornwall in a little more depth in my blog post below

Exploring the stone circles of West Penwith

Autumn brings its own rewards in Cornwall, as the roads empty of traffic and the lush summer vegetation subsides to reveal the evocative stone circles in the ancient landscape of West Penwith*. Arm yourself with a good ordinance survey map and sturdy boots and early man will almost be waiting in the shadows to show you the markers of his existence.
We visited Boscawen Stone Circle to explore the stones not too far from the road but a world away from the more visited sites in Cornwall, so if you would like to learn more click on the link below to read the full blog with more info.

*West Penwith was an old name for the area around Penzance and Land's End and it has now mostly fallen out of use

Kynance Cove

Autumn is a wonderful time to explore Cornwall when the crowds have slipped away and yet the days are still warm with memories of summer

It was on one particularly beautiful autumn day we drove to the Lizard Peninsular to explore the haunting beauty of Kynance Cove
Kynance Cove truly does have a haunting beauty set below the undulating contours of enfolded green cliffs on the Lizard Peninsular.  This soft sandy world of mysterious plazas, punctuated by towering stacks of gleaming dark serpentine, is not to be missed…
