Photograph of the Bluebells at Milltown/Lantyan Woods near Valley Cottage B&B PortmellonOccasionally it’s nice to do something different than beachcombing, so last weekend we went to see the fabulous bluebells at Milltown/Lantyan Woods overlooking the Fowey river near Golant. Everywhere we looked they were spread out before us.

It was only 20 minutes away from us in Portmellon Cove and reminded us that there are a huge variety of walks in this area, it was really peaceful, we didn’t see a soul.

What a great time to come and explore the deserted beaches and glorious coastal walking before it gets too busy.

 

The famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and lesser known Caerhays Castle are both within a few miles and will soon be full of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, so come on down for a visit.

We are so fortunate living this close to the South Cornwall coast which has so much to offer, fabulous scenery, deserted beaches, all kinds of weather and flora and fauna ahead of most other parts of the country.

COME ON DOWN!! (We’d love to see you)

If you’re thinking of returning, or visiting for the first time, now is a good time to plan your holiday in this lovely part of Cornwall, which has so much to offer, from the first Spring flowers, to lovely Summer beaches, cliff walking and lots more. We already have bookings for June, July and August, with one family returning for their fifth time, we’re looking forward to the season and welcoming both old and new friends.

During the summer, whilst tidying the garden, we have noticed a very confident Robin. At the weekend, when we welcomed back Ray & Sheila from London, Robin came onto the patio to join in with the tea and cake, our guests were absolutely enthralled and took some lovely close up photographs.
