cosy cottage, nice and rural

5 of 5
Off the beaten track (down a rough lane and across a field). If you want civilisation this is not for you. But it suits me! Weather good also. Only stayed four days and went home early as husband poorly. Part of the reason for being so far down in Cornwall is family, a cousin in Newquay, and my grandmother is buried in St Just so needed to sort out the grave, not everyone's cup of tea but I seem to be the only family member who is interested in family history! Managed to get in a garden visit (Trengwithen which is nearby) and went off to Geevor tin mine. Trewellard Arms good on food, both evening meals and bar food at lunchtime.
