Heading Down South Part 2


Kynanace Cove

Last Wednesday we awoke in sennon cove ready to head over to Kynance Cove and Lizard Point. The day had some amazing sights and it was a great way to spend the last full day of our trip. We stooped of for tea in Polpero, before parking the van close to Lantic Bay and bedding down for the night.

Final Fry Up


Heading Down for Lantic Bay

After finishing off the rest of the bacon for breakfast we spent our final morning in Cornwall down at Lantic Bay, enjoying the beach. The sea still a little bit chilly this time of year for a swim but we had a paddle none the less. On the way home we stopped of at Jamaica Inn and Stone Henge. Both rather disappointing experiences in my opinion, representing no more than a tick in a bucket list after all the commercialisation packed into them.

It’s been an awesome time seeing the south of the country and I’ll definitely be coming back in the future. And can’t wait to climb on the granite sea cliffs.

Having an awesome time exploring the more southern parts of the country.


Katy cooking breakfast

Sunday was spent driving down, with a quick trip to Bristol and a lovely night on Dartmoor. We awoke to a herd of the wild Dartmoor Ponies grazing outside the van, and after a leisurely breakfast we made our way through the national park towards Cornwall.

Hayle Beach

The day was spent exploring the beaches in glorious weather and trying to remember we were actually still in the UK. The night was spent with a BBQ at Bassets Cove, followed in the morning by a quick get away to Hell’s Mouth cafe where we’d been informed a good fry up could be found. We weren’t disappointed. We then carried on to St Ives and sampled the traditional cornish pasty and then onto Land’s End and finally Sennen Cove where we plan to bed down for the night.IMG_1042

The coasts, coves and moors of the south make up for the lack of lofty peaks, and I feel guilty that I’ve avoided visiting sooner.
