Cornish South West Coast Path

Cornish South West Coast Path

If you are coming on holiday, the Cornish South West Coast Path has much to recommend it, especially around the #Porthleven area where the scenery is outstanding. The weather has been so hot and sunny that the cliffs are not as green and lush as usual, but the cliff flowers are still stunning. The pink […]

Walk from Porthleven to Penrose

Walk from Porthleven to Penrose

The sun is shining so this morning I decided to walk from Porthleven to Penrose, the National Trust estate nearby. I walked past the #harbour and the local cafes and shops thinking how thoughtful #Porthleven people are, leaving fresh bowls of water out for dogs. Porthleven is so dog-friendly, I do love living here. Keeping […]

Porthleven is Heaven

Porthleven is Heaven

Well, perhaps Porthleven is Heaven is a bit of an over-statement, but I just love living here and would certainly have a holiday here if I lived elsewhere. #Porthleven is a seaside village and England’s most southerly harbour. To the east of the harbour there is a long stretch of sandy #beach, which never gets […]

Summer in Porthleven, What could be Better

Summer in Porthleven, What could be Better

Summer in Porthleven – what could be better? Flaming June is living up to its name and it’s scorching here in #Porthleven, #Cornwall. It’s late afternoon and is even too hot to take the dog for a walk. I took her down to the harbour for a swim so she could cool off. Being black […]

It is now early April and the bluebells are coming through, leaving a beautiful scent wafting on the air as you walk past. Penrose A few years ago, the National Trust opened up more […]
