Explore the secrets of West Cornwall with twelve of the most unspoilt secluded beaches and coves this week set along the hauntingly beautiful coast. They are almost a secret but not quite if you are armed with a well thumbed ordnance survey map and a pair of walking boots to follow Cornwall’s dramatic cliff top walks and lush valleys to the sound of the sea. So shh don’t tell and I will tell you some of my favourite spots to enjoy an idyllic day away from the tourist spots in unspoilt secret West Cornwall.

The August bank holiday turned out to be a classic Cornish weekend with still clear tranquil seas bathed in sunshine one day turning to dramatic tumbling waves racing across Mounts bay in the blink of an eye.

I often suggest to our guests that are seeking early villages a trip to Carn Euny an ancient courtyard settlement, set around an accessible fogou deep, in the heart of West Penwith. Cornwall has a wonderful ancient heritage from which it is possible to trace the early societies that lived here and linger just for a moment in their shadow. Carn Euny is managed by Cornwall Heritage Trust with parking in a little lay-by about 600 metres from the site and access is free. Continue reading “Carn Euny ancient village” »
