Cornwall part 1 – hobbit hut, Eden and pretty ports

It’s taken me the best part of a week to go through nearly 2000 photos from our long weekend in Cornwall. We crammed so much into 5 days and it feels like a bit of a dream…


Our first “leg” of the trip involved a stay in (basically) a shed in the woods. This was the part I was most unsure about, not being sure what to expect. The hobbit hut at Acorn Camping & Glamping was gorgeous, cosy and so well designed with cute lights and a comfy futon that Luke said was even comfier than our bed at home (it’s probably time to get a new mattress)


Despite the rain, it was quite easy to keep dry under shelter and watch the bees in the flowers. At first glance they look like cool silver bees, but on closer inspection they’re just coated in a layer of shiny looking pollen. Disco bees!


There were plenty of birds around, including our resident robin…


After a cosy night listening to the rain, we woke up and headed to the Eden Project.



Look at these weird tomatoes that look like smooth lemons and limes…


After Eden, we stopped off for a pasty at the beach and then a wander around Fowey…


Our Sunday morning was so pretty with mist rolling through the valley.


On our way out to the next section of the holiday, we stopped off at Mevagissey to fill up on pizza and seaside views.


That’s it for the first half of our trip! Will have to pick out some pics from our second half in the Lizard for a separate post 🙂
