Cornwall is a county on England’s rugged southwestern tip. It forms a peninsula encompassing wild moorland and hundreds of sandy beaches, culminating at the famous promontory Land’s End. The south coast, dubbed the Cornish Riviera, is home to picturesque harbour villages like Fowey and Falmouth. The north coast is lined with towering cliffs and seaside resorts like Newquay, known for it’s surfing. Cornwall, with its quaint hamlets, hidden coves, stunning coastal scenery, and cobbled lanes wouldn’t be out of place in a fairytale. One of our favourite roadtrips in England, this drive along the Cornish coastline, has repeatedly been adjudged one of the most scenic drives in the world.
St Michael’s Mount is a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay, Cornwall. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water. It is managed by the National Trust, and the castle and chapel have been the home of the St Aubyn family since approximately 1650. The earliest buildings, on the summit, date to the 12th century. Its Cornish language name – literally, “the grey rock in a wood” – may represent a folk memory of a time before Mount’s Bay was flooded, indicating a description of the mount set in woodland. Remains of trees have been seen at low tides following storms on the beach at Perranuthnoe. Radiocarbon dating established the submerging of the Hazelwood at about 1700 BC.
