View from Lanhydrock

Lanhydrock

Lanhydrock was restored by Thomas Charles after a fire, in 1881, into a ‘an unpretentious family home’. I saw some pretty interesting things on display, including things I haven’t seen before. The house is gorgeous and the estate looks amazing on a sunny day like the one we had when we’ve visited it. There are […]

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle is a lovely castle owned and managed by English Heritage in Cornwall. It was built by Henry VIII, between 1539 to 1545, when he was concerned about invasion from the Catholic kingdoms of Europe. He improved the defense by building a few coastal forts, equipped with guns powerful enough to sink enemy warships. […]

Boscastle Harbour and Tea rooms

We’ve stayed close to Boscastle, so we’ve been there twice, to go on a walk on the cliffs, have cream tea at the Tea rooms, visit The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, and, of course, to see the Boscastle Harbour. Boscastle is a lovely village on the north Cornish coast, only a few miles from […]

Lizard Point

Lizard Point and Kynance Cove

Lizard Point and Kynance Cove look incredibly different, despite being very close to each other. Both are also very close to Gunwalloe. Both places are owned and managed by National Trust. All the pictures were taken on the same day, at approximately 1 hour from each other. It’s quite incredible how much difference a bit […]

Hitler at The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

One of the places we visited in our trip to Cornwall was The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? I saw their website and I was intrigued. What kind of things can be on display at the museum of magic? I’m glad we did visit it. It was very interesting, I even […]

Gunwalloe

Gunwalloe

Gunwalloe is a lovely place on the Cornish coast, boasting dunes, beaches, and a medieval church. The place is lovely. It was gorgeous on a warm but not very sunny October day, I can only imagine how wonderful it must be on a very warm and sunny June/July day. This is a stunning place to […]

Tintagel Castle

There is the Old Post Office, the cliffs, and a lovely church, also there is a castle managed by English Heritage. The castle is […]
