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.

Took an hour off and escaped for a walk above Vault beach near Gorran Haven and saw all these wonderful wild flowers.

Every year Sue picks a bunch of Bluebells, Campions, Buttercups and “the white ones” for her traditional arrangement in this beautiful old jug.

Returning guests bring family & friendsPhotograph of sunrise and early morning mist over Portmellon Cove near Valley Cottage B&B

This spell of weather hasn’t deterred previous guests from returning, in fact more of them are bringing family or friends with them and the mist has provided some wonderful vistas over the cove.
