Polperro, Lanhydrock and Barcelona…

  Today we wanted to go to Polperro, again the thought of going down tiny twisty lanes was a bit daunting but once we got on the road it wasn’t too bad at all. In fact the B road to Polperro was better than some of the A roads we have driven down. We parked…

Off to Looe

Well our penultimate Cornish site visit is Looe Caravan Club Site, where we will stay for 2 nights. We said our farewells to friends, Jane and Macky and wished them well for the winter, then made our way along the A390 then A38 to Looe. Arriving in bright sunshine we were welcomed by Kevin and…

Day at Eden

Sorry that I have been remiss in writing the blog but we’ve been pretty busy over the past couple of days. Going out during the day and either going out for meals or cooking and entertaining in the van. The weather has changed, it has turned quite chilly with patches of rain. During the night…

Poldark’s Nampara – Kynance Cove

Today saw us return to (NT) Kynance Cove (a place we last visited in 2004) which doubles up as Poldark’s beloved home, Nampara. It is to the west of the Lizard and probably the most photographed and painted location in Cornwall. We parked in the generous car park high above the cove. As we are members of…
