Godrevy beach







I've been meaning to write this post for a couple of weeks but life just gets in the way. I'll hopefully be able to get back to regular blogging now and catch up on your posts too! I wanted to start by sharing some of my favourite Cornish places.

Godrevy is perfect for exploring and somewhere we just keep going back to. Maintained by the National Trust and situated just across the bay from St. Ives, this part of the Cornish coast is rugged and beautiful. Here you will find the best beaches... sheltered coves, awe-inspiring cliffs and mile upon mile of golden sand.

A short distance along the coast path towards the lighthouse (said to be the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's novel 'To The Lighthouse') you'll find a colony of grey seals at Godrevy Head. This year we walked beyond to Hell's Mouth, stopping to admire wild flowers and butterflies.

Back inland, the Godrevy Cafe serves up the most delicious breakfasts. In summer you can relax on the roof terrace and just take in the spectacular view. Perfect!
