Our Ten Favourite Benches, No. 3

Naturally upholstered, this throne selebrates its 607th or thereabouts birthday this year.

COT VALLEY COUCH, Far west Cornwall

 Naturally upholstered, this throne celebrates its 607th or thereabouts birthday this year. It comes and goes with the thrift, and is actually easy to miss such is the jaw-drop scenery that cascades down from its ankles into the sea at Nanven where the exposed rock resembles the moon. From St Just, take Bosorne Road opposite the school and weave down to the sea, park up and amble left up the coast path for a quarter of a mile-ish.

Pub: The Star Inn, St Just.

Tip: At low tide, climb down the steps by the mine shaft to the moonscape on the beach
 and find a jelly mould to fit your back.

A day in Kingsand and Cawsand

Kingsand and Cawsand are twin seafront villages on The Rame Peninsula in Cornwall. They have a rich fishing (and smuggling!) heritage and you can still spot the old fish cellars and stores along the coast.
