Paul and I just returned from a mini break in Cornwall, England. A beautiful spot on the south west coast, renowned for its surfing beaching, pirates, smugglers and all things Cornish.
We stayed at the hotel Tregenna CastleWelcome to Tregenna Castle Hotel & Self Catering, St Ives; Tel 01736 795254situated in St IvesThe History of St Ives - Cornwall | Tate Gallery St. Ives | Barbara Hepworth Museum which is a small fishing port, and is known for its stunning natural coastal beauty and for being the backdrop for many film locations such as Disney’s Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton version) Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour.

I just thought some of you may be interested to have a look at an English holiday town, some of our coastal scenery, and some of our buildings and beauty spots.
I will just post some photos and a small description of what and where it is:happy:
The first photos are in the hotel’s grounds. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful woodland which is abundant with lots of wildlife and birds and many sub tropical plants. The weather in Cornwall is much warmer than the rest of the country hence the ability to grow Palms and other tropical plants.
