For the second week of the Easter break we rented a 'cabin' type affair near Bodmin in Cornwall. What a glorious week we had, the sun shone and we were blessed with blue skies and beautifully warm days all bar the Friday, which was our last day anyway so we couldn't complain. We had decided that we would make the most of our National Trust membership on this holiday and made a good start with a visit to Castle Drogo on the journey from Somerset, through Devon and on into Cornwall (sorry, no photos.)
The next day (Easter Sunday) we headed for Lanhydrock, which was just about 3 miles from where we were staying so we got there just as it was opening up. There was an Easter Egg hunt (again, as we'd also done one at Castle Drogo) which kept DC occupied while hubby, Granny and I were able to enjoy the house and gardens.
Unfortunately after this my battery ran out so that was the end of the photos, but believe me when I say it is a stunning house, chock-full of interesting historical artefacts, books, furniture, decor, and surrounded by a wonderful garden. I think Lanhydrock is at the top of the list for favourite NT places visited and I would absolutely encourage everyone to go there; I really hope hubby and I can make a return visit sometime soon.
Day three and we ventured to Fowey so that DC could partake of his favourite holiday past-time - crabbing. Here he is with his brand new bucket, ready and raring to go.
Our timing meant that we were able to get the boat over to the island and then walk back along the causeway after our visit
This is the Giant's Heart; it's hidden among the cobbles in the path that leads up to the castle
The next day it was back to Fowey for more crabbing!
