Cornish favourites: North Cornwall

Before we left North Devon for home (which at the time was in west Surrey) we headed on down the coast to have another look at the North Cornwall coastal towns of Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac – famous for the Doc Martin series on ITV. Of course getting there involved a stop off at another beach – Sandymouth, and the return was via the coastal road and a quick stop at Widecombe Bay. Writing these travelogues makes me understand why it is that I arrive back from  holiday needing a holiday. I don’t seem to do relaxing!

No such blue sky here at the moment. More rain and overnight gales. But for a glimpse of how Cornwall can look I’m taking you back to 2013 again and the pretty villages in the north.

Visit North Cornwall in 2011

    I checked out my comment on the original, and enjoyed seeing it again. Reminded me of trips to Bude and Boscastle in good weather. Not always possible, during an English summer!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      If only good weather could be guaranteed here! Saying that the rain has stopped and I can see some blue sky 🙂

    Someday when I eventually get to visit Cornwall, it will be because of you 🙂

  3. We only had perfect weather in Cornwall. I can’t imagine it any other way. 🙂

      You were very lucky!!

      1. That’s why we like to go in September. We usually have mostly great weather.

          Yes, September wasn’t too bad – the odd rainy day.

  4. Great photos. I’ve been to England many times but never to Cornwall. I hope to get there one day. 🙂

      It is a very pretty county.

    I’ve just worked out that you couldn’t have lived in Shropshire for very long at all Jude.

      2002 – 2004 in Shrewsbury, then 2011 – 2016 in Ludlow. The bit in between in Hampshire and the Surrey/West Sussex border. I was teaching in Hampshire.
