My Cornwall Travel Philosophy...

It's not hard to fall in love with Cornwall. I did on my first visit & it has since become a sacred travel space. A place of healing & self- discovery, Cornwall will always be on the agenda.

From a well-being standpoint, Cornwall is definitely one of the best destinations I've found to recharge and rebalance the mind, body, & spirit. Making it an ideal wellness travel destination.

I first went for the hiking and quickly realized it was so much more.
Almost completely surrounded by the sea, it's 300 miles of dramatic coastline that invite you into experiencing its intimate world.

Spectacular beaches, quiet coves, quaint fishing villages, & endless trails lead you to whatever it is you need the most. Rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, peace, solitude or to commune with others. You'll find everything you dreamed of, and more!


Have Active Adventures

SWIM

If you're in Cornwall, then a dip in the ocean is a must! My favorite spots are The Whitesands Bay at Sennen Cove (Blue Flag) & the laid back gem of Mawgan Porth.

suRF

Cornwall is home to some of the best surfing in the UK. Don't worry, many places offer lessons for the newbies ready to leave their comfort zone & give it a try.

cycle

Cycling is a relaxing way to slow the pace & take in the landscape. Try the Camel Trail  for off-road leisure or The Mineral Tramways Trail for spotting abandoned mines.

Connect With Nature

Cornwall is the perfect place to escape, disconnect, & experience nature. 

WATCH A SUNSET //
There are no shortage of spectacular places to watch the sun go down in Cornwall. It's always on my evening agenda, and my two most memorable sunsets a have been at Tintagel  & Porthmeor Beach in St. Ives.

THE EDEN PROJECT //
You can pass an entire day at the renown tropical garden. It's a fun & fascinating learning day out. You'll walk away with a great appreciation for the relationship between humans & plants.

ABANDONED MINES //
Cornwall is unparalleled in its abundance of abandoned mines. Being at one with nature and exploring allows you to more deeply appreciate the relationship between the Cornish & the sea. Many overlook the ocean, a powerful experience.  My favorites are the Poldark featured Botallack Crowns & Wheal Coates.
 




ST NECTAN'S GLEN //  TINTAGEL
A walk in this ancient woodland is a spiritual experience. The path  meanders through unspoilt beauty was considered a sacred place during King Arthur's time & a Christian shrine was built during the 6th century. You'll feel at one with nature.

ST. SENARA'S CHURCH // ZENNOR
This 6th century restored Celtic church is a peaceful place to rest for a while. Located in Zennor, on The Penwith Peninsula, I wandered in at the end of a hike from St. Ives. The inside is architecturally inspiring and  there's a special energy here.

CAPE CORNWALL // ST. JUST
This location is unpopulated perfection! Not far from Land's End, this spot on the SW Coast Path is an ideal spot to sit at the end of the day and watch the sun tuck itself into the horizon. The rays glistening across the waves is memorable.

Relax in Quiet Places

A few places to rest, relax & find  peace & quiet.

Keep Learning

GEEVOR TIN Mine

the tate st. ives

The Tate St Ives is an engaging look at Modern Art, including many famous Cornish artists. The Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden is a perfect way to cap off an afternoon of creative connection.

COOKING SCHOOL

With a first class food scene comes golden opportunities to learn. Why not try the renown Rick Stein Cooking School or The Fat Hen Cookery School in Penzance. Their Gourmet Wild Food Weekend sees you forage & learn to cook, with a feast ending by the fire. Need I say more?

Great things happen when you step out of your comfort zone.
