We’ve visited many of the National Trust sites in Cornwall, and I thought I was long overdue for a post sharing them all in a comprehensive list! So here’s a Throwback Thursday look back at some of the places we’ve been!
Here is a list of all the sites that can be found in Cornwall, with links to my posts if I’ve visited. I will update with any more links when I get to them!

We’re 10 days in to January, and it’s been pretty quiet! I’ve been working a lot so there’s not been much going on so far! The weather’s been pretty terrible too, so it doesn’t exactly make you want to go and spend time outside!
These posts will be a bit of a mix of places we go, cinema trips, anything interesting happening, as well as any short mentions that don’t really warrant a full post, I’ll also use Fridays as a way of sharing any online challenges and updates on the big 35 before 35 challenge!

It has been quite a miserable, wet January; and so when we were looking for places to visit, we decided to go somewhere indoors; to the National Maritime Museum!
Cornwall have a lot of indoor attractions; it’s worth checking out what is available wherever you’re staying if you’re in the area; and the weather isn’t at its best. You can also check out this article from Dolphin Holidays, which features a little quote from me too!

Tintagel, on the north coast of Cornwall, is a village steeped in Arthurian Legend, or in other words is alleged to be the former home of King Arthur. Now run by English Heritage, you can visit the site, enjoy the coast, and learn what part Cornwall may have played in this historical tale.
We headed out to visit on a lovely sunny day recently, so I thought I’d share the day with you, here on the blog!

Something you will of course find a fair bit of here on the blog, are posts about our days out, and local wanderings! We love visiting some of the historic houses and sites here in cornwall; as well as many other places of interest!
This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Getting into the garden, or exploring those around us. Definitely a couple of our regular activities! I’m not in any sense a gardening expert; but I am slowly learning; and love sharing some of my projects on the blog. As well as, of course; our visits to local gardens, and those further afield!
One week into the 2021 A-Z Challenge; and I am sharing a retrospective; or look back at The Craft Room and Beyond. Sharing past content, and photos from the archive! Of course I may mention other things, and not link to them; if you’d like to know more, feel free to leave a comment, or try the search bar!

Hello April! It’s A-Z Challenge time again, and as I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Today I am starting with some of our Awesome Adventures!
I love sharing our travels and days out here on the blog; whether it’s a holiday abroad, a weekend away or a day trip closer to home. We are lucky to live in the beautiful county of Cornwall, and there is so much to see and do; right on our doorstep!

We weren’t sure if we would manage a festive day out this year, what with how this year has been. We did manage to find a little bit of Christmas at Trerice; so headed there for a little walk this week!
Christmas at some of the local National Trust properties; is such a wonderful thing to experience. In the past we have visited Lanhydrock and Trelissick to see the decorations.

I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.
You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.
But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!
Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.

Well, it’s getting back to normal time for me; this week our store reopens (today in fact); so I’m back to work, and I’ll be heading back to a sort-of normal routine!
I’m off today; so we’re enjoying the very last of the good weather having booked a time-slot at my favourite National Trust property; Lanhydrock. Though of course the house remains closed, we plan on having a nice walk around the gardens and woodland there for a bit!
