Cornwall in Bloom

Bedruthan Steps
Since I read Jamaica Inn (and just finished another Daphne du Maurier book–stay tuned!), I’ve had Cornwall on the brain. So, I thought I would share a few gorgeous pics I’ve found on pinterest. I haven’t been to Cornwall yet, but it’s on my to-visit list. What about you?

    Hi Lauren,
    I love your new blog! It is beautiful. I am an Anglophile also and will be a regular visitor. I have never been to Cornwall but would love to go one day. There are many literary associations as well as the television show Doc Marten that pull me there.
    Warm regards,

      It’s great to hear from you, Sunday! I always get such great travel and reading recommendations from your blog.
      I’ve been having a Cornwall moment with Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn and The King’s General. Definitely books that make me want to visit their settings.

    I’ve visited Cornwall before and it’s absolutely stunning, you HAVE to go there! So picturesque

      I don’t know if we’ll make it to Cornwall on our next trip to England (Paul and I were planning on Yorkshire), but I want to go in the not-so-distant future. You’ll have to give me some tips!

    Oh, yes…Cornwall is on my list!

    Hey Lauren, It’s me, Vanessa from the ALT photography conference. I have been to Cornwall and it is lovely. So idyllic compared to the rest of the UK. Make sure if you go that you see a play at the Minack outdoor theatre. It overlooks the water and everyone drinks hot tea in their jackets on the old stone seats as the night descends. We mostly drove around a lot (on the tiny roads!) and admired the beauty of the nature. It’s a very quaint corner of the world. Also Agatha Christie’s house is worth visiting.

      Thanks for the tips! The Minack Theatre sounds awesome and I would love to see Agatha Christie’s house. Can’t wait to go to Cornwall.

    I am lucky enough to live in Cornwall and it is true gorgeous! I’d recommend taking the boat from Truro to Falmouth when the tides in. Then hopping over to st mawes by boat and having our famous cornish afternoon tea at The Idle Rocks Hotel (name then cream please! Not cream then jam like they do in Devon!).
    Go to Portscatho and have lunch at the hidden hut. It’s a hut on the beach with the most amazing food! If you’re lucky you may be able to get too one of their feast nights they have throughout the summer!
    Other beautiful places are kynance cove (near the minnack theatre which is beautiful), st ives, st micheals mount, st Agnes for a headland walk and many more…
    For fish and shellfish you must eat at the wheelhouse in Falmouth!
    It’s a beautiful place you will love it!

      I can’t wait! Thanks for all the recommendations–nothing like getting advice from a local. I’m so excited about our trip that I’m practically dancing around all the time. 🙂
