May 30, 2016 - Day 8 Land's End to Newquay

We decided to drive along the coast from Land's End to Newquay, our stop for tonight even though the maps shows the roads are only B roads. This means they are often very narrow and suitable for one car. We agreed that would be okay and off we went through St Just, Pendeen and Zennor before arriving in St Ives. What a shock that was. If we hadn't seen lots of people in other places, we would have thought half of England was on the beach at St Ives. The beach area was packed and the roads along the beach absolutely crazy and as we were...

May 20, 2016 - Cornwall

Unpacking on the cruise ship never seem to take as long as re-packing. Somehow Mom, Dad, and I seem to have junk all over the cabin. Small tornado. Still, we managed to get everything back into a suitcase, put the things we would need for the next two days where we could get to it, and got ourselves and all our possessions off the boat and onto the shore. Whew. Back in England. What do we do? Head to the amazing city of London? No, too obvious. Dad wanted to see Port Isaac in Cornwall. If you look at Great Britain, there is a little toe...

Sep 24, 2014 - hang ten

We spent the morning driving to our rental condo in Newquay. Little did we know that we put ourselves in the middle of a major surfing center, which must get wild and crazy in the summer, and was still visible on this sunny, fall day. We had wondered why this condo required a security deposit, while the next one does not. Newquay is ideally located not only for surfers, but for anyone who enjoys a wide sandy beach. It certainly doesn't fit our stereotype of a surfing town; many of the buildings here look hundreds of years old. But the waves...

Sep 16, 2012 - Bedruthan Steps and Park Head

Our first day of exploration in Cornwall was to make our way through Newquay (not a very inspiring town) north along the coast to Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. This was the start of our walk along the coast and around Park Head. The name Bedruthan Steps is said to be taken from a mythological giant called 'Bedruthan' who used the rocks (stacks) on the beach as stepping stones believed to be an invention for Victorian tourists. Carnewas was the name of the mine which between 1871 and 1874 mined haematite (iron oxide) from the cliffs. Walking...

Sep 15, 2012 - Hello Cornwall

We left Wareham and headed for Cornwall. The first part of the journey was on the A35 which twisted around a bit and was quite narrow in places so Tony had to be very careful. That part of the journey was slow. Once we got onto the M5 and then the A30 the journey got a whole lot better. We arrived at the campground in Summercourt just outside Newquay safely.

Apr 12, 2009 - Easter weekend

With nothing planned for the Easter weekend, we decided to head for the sun. After looking at the forecast, we discovered the only place in England with sunshine for the weekend was in the south west. So Scott, Brooke and Pat and Sarah (Scott's mates) and myself heading for a camping weekend to the seaside city of Newquay. Newquay was a surpise packet. It's a quaint and picturesque city with a buzz and vibe much like Airlie Beach (but less backpackers). We made the most of the sunny days - mountain biking, relaxing at the beach and the boys...

May 25, 2007 - Wadebridge to Newquay

Friday, 25 May 2007 Wadebridge to Newquay We got changed, packed up the bikes, and set off at about 1.30 pm along the Camel Trail to Padstow. The weather was pretty cloudy with the occasional flash of sun, and a bit breezy. We stopped off in Padstow for a late lunch and some tea and then set off again; we weren't sure how far we were going to cycle but as the weather forecast was not great for the next few days it seemed best to make the most of the fine weather while we had it. We struggled to find the right way out of Padstow, but once we...
