    Rose-in-Vale in Mithian, St. Agnes

    May 19, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌫 12 °C

    Im Rose-in-Vale beziehen wir gemeinsam die Garden Suite. Dabei handelt es sich um ein Zweibett-Zimmer und ein Doppelzimmer , die jeweils über ein eigenes Bad verfügen. Verbunden sind die beiden Zimmer durch ein kleines "Wohnzimmer".
    So hatten wir ein eigenes kleines Reich zu dritt und konnten trotzdem den Hotelkomfort nutzen.

    St Agnes

    September 12, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We walked to Perranporth along the coastal path from St Agnes. One of our longer walks taking in the newsagents in the village on the way.
    The first part of the walk took us via Trevaunance Cove, a beautiful little spot with a beach at low tide. This was followed by a big climb up and over the Blue Hills into Blue Hills Valley before climbing once again to the high ground, to pass via Cigga head and Shag Rock, before dropping down into Perranporth.
    We found a quiet cafe and enjoyed a cream tea which we enjoyed the Devon way (cream beneath jam) much more manageable. We had promised ourselves a cream tea whilst here, ans as we only have 5 days left before heading back into Devon we reasoned today was a good day to do it - especially we were planning on walking 12 miles over the course of the day, which hopefully would work off some of the calories!!!! We found a seat by the beach and read the paper for an hour prior to returing along the coast path from where we came. We walked up the Blue Hills Valley, which saved a second arduous climb and descent in what turned out to be one of our longer walks.

    St Agnes

    September 10, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    A short trip up the coast to another place that Jonathon, (our guide in Plymouth) suggested was worth a look.
    Very much still within the tin and copper mining territory the coast line was busy with old workings and the remnants of engine towers. Our first walk around the St Agnes head took us to the tower at Towanroath Shaft Engine House, which is high on the cliff top. In behind it lies Wheal Coates, one of the larger ruins. We followed inland for a bit to climb up to St Agnes Beacon prior to returning to the clifftop to walk around St Agnes Head. The scenery on the coastline was once again awesome. We returned to site via St Agnes village, a nice spot.Read more
