Cornwall – June 2019

Another visit to our favourite place in the world – Cornwall!

Looe
We stayed in a cottage just north of Looe.  The twin towns of East and West Looe are separated by the estuary.

Jamaica Inn
The old coaching inn in the middle of Bodmin Moor was made famous by Daphne Du Maurier in her novel of the same name.

 

Mevagissey
The fishing port of Mevagissey lies around 5 miles south of St. Austell.  The village has very narrow streets so it’s best to leave your car at the car park at the top and walk down into the village.  The twin harbour is very distinctive.

 

Polperro
Another fishing village with narrow streets, Polperro is just down the road from Looe.  It was the week of the Polperro Festival while we were down there and we witnessed an excellent performance by a Cornish “Queen” tribute band – that deserves its own blog post so more on that later!

Boscastle
Boscastle is another fishing village – this time on the north coast.   Now fully rebuilt after the devastating flash flood that washed cars and buildings into the sea in 2004.

One week in Cornwall isn’t long enough.  We shall return….
