Slow Sundays At Chapel Porth

Cornwall In 4 Days

Back in the summer, my friends came over from Switzerland to stay and I couldn't wait to show them around our little home. We had only four days with each other, which meant Jack and I had to squeeze our top favourite spots that they'd love in such a short amount of time. Thankfully, my little Corsa managed to travel miles across Cornwall within those four days and it was just the adventure we all needed.

Day 1: Potager, Glendurgan & Falmouth

We began our morning at Potager Garden, a little garden with a cute cafe selling wholesome grub and cacti after a new home. We thought it would be the perfect place to take our friends to begin the day slowly, stroll around the gardens, pop our heads into the open gallery and take some photos - you can see more photos of this spot in another blog post here.

Glendurgan Gardens was next on the list, this National Trust is the perfect place to explore with beautiful surroundings and a maze to get lost in. It also leads to the most beautiful beach, overlooking the Helford river which is just perfect - I could sit and stare out at it forever.

We finished the day up in Falmouth, Katharina's favourite place from the whole trip and it doesn't surprise me at all. It's full of colour, tasty treats and panoramic views.

Day 2, Eden Project & St Ives

Day two was a busy day and at the end of it, we were seriously tired. But we couldn't go without showing them The Eden Project, they both found it so magical and even after visiting so many times, this place never fails to impress me. 

After a day of exploring the biomes, we jumped in the car and travelled 47 miles north west of Cornwall to St Ives. It was so busy, but I HAD to try and get them into Hub, because I was sure this would be the best burger they would ever eat - we just managed to squeeze in and it did not disappoint, we even got a window seat. Win.

Day 3, St Michael's Mount, Mousehole & Godrevy

Another busy day and despite heading to Marazion to visit St Michael's Mount and it being closed, it was still lovely to see the castle from the beach (who closes a castle on a Saturday anyway?!). We decided to stroll towards Godolphin Arms for a cream tea and to be honest, this was just as good simply because of the view. We then drove to Mousehole, a beautiful fishing village a short drive away with cute houses and a stunning harbour.

The evening soon rolled around, and we got a bbq together and went to Godrevy to sit on the cliffs with one of the best views in Cornwall - in my opinion anyway! A perfect way to end our last evening together.

Day 4, Tintagel

Katharina and Tim booked their final stay at Tintagel, a place Jack and I haven't visited for years. I think I must have been really little as I couldn't remember it at all. It took ages to drive there but it was so worth it - even if the rain was pouring! We went into the Old Post Office, walked up to Tintagel Castle, soaked up the views and said our goodbyes after a good pub grub sesh.

Where's your favourite place in Cornwall?
