21 reasons why I love Cornwall

The beaches can be as golden as Caribbean sand but they have a rugged beauty all of their own

You can buy delicious crab sandwiches in most decent cafes

You can turn a corner and see an honesty box

Or a box of sea urchins for sale

The juice bar at the Eden Project

Fish and chips at the Portminster cafe

The farmhouse cream teas down bumpy dirt-tracks


The surfing at Porthmeor beach

Hot chocolate with whipped cream at the Hidden Hut at Porthscatho

The whiff of smugglers on deserted headlands

You can walk barefoot through the streets

And waste hours going crabbing

Time seems to go slower

You can walk down a country lane and feel as if you are heading off on a Famous Five adventure

The quality of the beachcombing booty


The peachy St Ives light and glorious sunsets

It’s beautiful even when it’s cold and bleak

The fog that swirls over Bodmin – sometimes scary, always atmospheric

The amazing food thanks to fresh ingredients

The sight of clear jade water

Taking the ferry from St Mawes to Place
