Captivating Cornwall

 

Further to my previous posting - This was the accommodation we happily stayed in at Lostwithiel . . .


 . . . and some of the fabulous countryside we rambled through. . .



.... some background on Lostwithiel






  


The site of our accommodation also housed the local Golf & Country Club with a Pro Shop. A lovely large atrium off the dining area enabled one to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast while watching the more energetic either play golf or tennis!

Delicious food, very comfortable and cosy accommodation, welcoming hosts and picturesque surroundings - what more could one ask?  All in all a memorable stay!

The buildings look delightful and the country side perfect for leisurely rambling Valerie.

Your photos give us a very soothing and serene look at the English countryside.
I love the shot of the fence with the stone post.
Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment!

Lovely part of the country, but not the best place to try to find accomodation at the height of the season! You seem to have been very lucky!

It looks like you found a super place to stay. The countryside is so green and picturesque. The dates on the plaque are unreal compared to here.

John: Yes, we did consider ourselves very fortunate in securing this stay - especially as we were originally only thinking in terms of an overnighter: that turned into 5 days! ... and all due to alert eyes and road signage.

Diane: Yes, the strong sense of history that exists throughout the UK is, to me, part of its appeal. As you imply, Australia is but a mere baby in comparison! However, here it is Australia Day and we do gratefully celebrate the wonderful lifestyle and (relative) freedoms we enjoy as residents, due to the persistent and adventurous spirit of our pioneers.

So charming, Valerie. More please. :-) Some day I hope I can travel to England. I especially love the countryside. The architecture, gardens. Ahhh.
