Visiting Cornwall

We've had another break for a few day.  This time going down to Cornwall and an area we haven't really stopped at before.  Our hotel break was at the Whitsand Bay Hotel, Torpoint.  A lovely location.....

where a certain lurcher enjoyed his stay




and fun on a different beach


To be honest, I wasn't sure whether to add all the Cornwall pictures
to one post...but thought it would go on too long

so I have decided to do bite sized posts.

Starting with our walk at

Rame Head


 (click here to read about the NCI at Rame Head)


....and walked across the fields and moorland - with Dartmoor ponies doing a good job grazing down the vegetation - they took no notice of us, they were too busy munching.


and on across towards the former chapel on the hill
(click the link about Rame Head and the chapel)


the views were stunning, even on an overcast day

 there had obviously been a first floor to this building, going on the recesses in the walls








(how did William get into this blog - again!!)


Heading back up to the coastguard base



 and the dartmoor's were ahead of us


lovely ponies


 we thoroughly enjoyed our walk
and it was good exercise too.

  4. That looks like a fabulous place to stay! You actually walked up that hill to the chapel, so worth it for those stunning views. That's a great photo of William sat in the window :)

    1. It was so worth the walk. Wasn't too far either, and we avoided a cloud burst on the way back!

    1. It's lovely along the south coast of Cornwall, I like the estuaries the best, like you say Jane, it is beautiful there.

  8. A lovely winter walk. An interesting little chapel. It reminded me of St Aldhem`s in the Purbecks.

    1. Yes, it is very similar to St. Aldhem's isn't it - up there on the hill away from everything.
