Pub Philosophy

It's all about the locals and their way of life. We've done the difficult bit for you - we've spoken to the old man in the corner of the pub and deciphered his West Country accent to find out which bits of the area the visitors don't know about.

Penwith Peninsula Tour Map

Lumps of stone perched in a way no human could have constructed, magical dells full of wishes and spectacular sights that make you drop all your thoughts and just be.

Tremayne Quay Picnic Walk

We wanted to go on a picnic. And the best kind of picnic usually involves a bit of a ramble to walk off those scones, as long as you don't have to carry the hamper too far. So, we chose Tremayne Quay near Mawgan on the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall.

Picnic on the Quay

A mid-July, mid-week, mid-afternoon picnic on Tremayne quay off the Helford River. We picked our way through the best bits of the local farm shops on our Tour of the Lizard to create an enviable hamper full of goodies.

Farm shops and Delis on the Lizard, West Cornwall

We start our journey in Helston and go a little out of our way in the first instance, but it’s worth it – Porthleven Corner Deli is full of tempting treats. We then head out of Helston, past Culdrose for the start of our loop of the Lizard.

Tregonning Hill Barefoot walk

Inspired by our encounter with Steve Bloor and the Godolphin House Barefoot Trail, we decided to try out our own walk with naked feet, so we hot-footed it over to nearby Tregonning Hill.
