I recently headed down to Cornwall to visit family – it always feels like breath of fresh air to be back in my home county, both literally and metaphorically.  Getting some downtime is a must and there’s nowhere that I like to do that more than Cornwall.  I thought I would share a few snaps as inspiration for your next trip to Cornwall, if you yourself also fancy a little Cornish breather.

Philps pasties, arguably the best pasties to be had in Cornwall…and they do vegan ones too!  Cornwall has a reputation for its world-class food, which in most cases is made from ultra-fresh locally produced ingredients.  If you are big into your food, you might want to check out my recommendations for the top 10 things to eat in Cornwall.

If there is one thing that you must see when you are in Cornwall, it’s St Michael’s Mount , which sits pretty in Mounts Bay.  During low tide, you can walk across the causeway to the castle-adorned island, to look around.  Just keep and eye on the tide, or else you might get soggy shoes if you have to walk back whilst the tide comes in – I’m talking from experience here!

(Above) The Canopy Walkway in the Rainforest biome, with incredible, vertigo-inducing views from the top – I’d highly recommend checking it out if you visit the Eden Project, even if you have to queue for a bit, as it’s well worth it.

The Eden Project is always a fantastic idea for a day out in Cornwall, especially as it’s a great option regardless of the weather.

I try to watch at least one performance at the Minack Theatre every summer – on this occasion it was Alice in Wonderland.  There’s nothing that compares to the Minack anywhere else in the world; the unique amphitheatre is carved into the cliff face, providing the most breathtaking views out to sea.  I usually like to go for a late performance, as you can watch the sunset…and sometimes you might just be lucky enough to spot some dolphins on the horizon.

Luckily enough there was some gorgeous weather during my trip, so naturally, there was lots of sprawling out on the beach.  I would definitely recommend Praa Sands which is heavenly, especially when the weather is hot.
