The Eden Project is an amazing place we had visited a couple of times in the past when the kids were dinky, but we have returned twice in the last month with the children now being 9 years and 7 years old. They couldn’t remember it from before, but Bella had a school trip recently and since moving to Cornwall last year, we decided it was great value to sign up for their annual membership so we can visit regularly throughout the next year.
Read on to see our March and April 2022 photos from the Eden Project and some thoughts on our two recent visits so you know what to expect. Discover some answers to some common questions about the Eden Project Cornwall and how you can save money if you are local, or if you regularly visit Cornwall and love the Eden Project.Continue reading “Eden Project Cornwall review, photos + helpful visitor information”
This is probably one of my favourite walks so far since living in Newquay. It was the first walk I did by myself: a 5km walk from the far end of Whipsiderry Beach to the far end of Watergate Bay. The first time I did it, Ben and the kids picked me up from Watergate Bay as they stayed and played at Whipsiderry. Just this week, we returned and we walked as a family to Watergate Bay and then back along the cliffs taking the South West Coast Path from Watergate Bay to Whipsiderry, back to where we’d parked the car.Continue reading “Beautiful 10km Newquay coastal walk: Whipsiderry to Watergate Bay along the beach, and back along South West Coast Path”
A couple of weeks ago we explored Trevose Head, a headland managed by the National Trust towards Padstow in Cornwall. We parked towards the tip of the headland not far from the lighthouse in a National Trust carpark. Check out my paragraph at the end to see how you can save money on a National Trust membership!
From Trevose Lighthouse we walked around Trevose headland to Mother Ivey’s Bay, passing the Padstow lifeboat station on the way, before walking back to the carpark via Booby’s Bay with Constantine Bay in the distance and past a rather incredible blowhole known as Round Hole.

Wow, what a walk. 17.7km and 28,756 steps from Perranporth beach all the way to Newquay town! Ben had wanted to do this walk for a while, so we decided to postpone working one morning when we saw blue skies and the sun shining and take the South West Coast Path in Cornwall from Perranporth back to our hometown of Newquay!Continue reading “South West Coast Path from Perranporth to Newquay 17.7km walk! Stunning beaches!”
Yesterday we had an amazing 7.2km walk along the National Trust site known as Pentire Headland. It’s in Wadebridge and is different to the Pentire headland in Newquay! It’s by Pentireglaze and Polzeath Beach.
If you’re looking for a walk in Cornwall with amazing views then I recommend the route we took. Our kids were in tow too! Some of the paths are right near the edge with sheer drops down to the sea, so be careful with very young kids!
We took a slightly longer route than the recommended walk on the National Trust map at Lead Mines. We parked in the Lead Mines car park.
See the route we took in purple here:Continue reading “Pentire headland walk 7.2km via Rump Point, Pentire Point and Pentireglaze Haven!”
Today we went for a short walk from the historical tin mine site Wheal Coates to Chapel Porth beach near St Agnes in Cornwall.
We parked at the National Trust car park at Wheal Coates to begin, staying in the car for a while to enjoy some vegan Rowes pasties we picked up on the way!
And to stay out of the rain for a while longer, as typically it started chucking it down just before we arrived!
Not wanting to waste our journey, we braved the elements and got pelted in the face with icey wind and rain as we walked down to see the ruins and remains of this famous UNESCO World Heritage site.Continue reading “Wheal Coates to Chapel Porth coastal walk”
