Cyder & Storm-watching

It’s that time of year when the weather is unpredictable and changeable. Today I’ve seen sunshine, rain and hail. Whilst I was driving home from work there were short bursts of torrential rain; one minute I was turning my wipers off, the next minute off…and so on and so forth. Cornwall’s wild coastline brings strong…

Poldark locations: the magic of Holywell Bay

5 of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall

Let me admit straight away that I have never actually surfed. I know, I know, how can I call myself a Cornish girl if I’ve never tried surfing? I do body board though. Not as much as I would like to these days, mainly due to being situated near the south coast; you need the…
