Our Easter in Cornwall

We had a wonderful holiday over Easter in Cornwall, back to the home of my husband. We stayed in a lovely little flat in Higher Trewithen near Stithians.

From the flat we could walk across the beautiful fields to the village of Stithians. We walked this route on many a dark night from the village pub.

Walk across the field to Stithians

Stithians hosts a huge dam, aptly named Stithians Dam.

We also visited a few different places, the first being St Michael's Mount...
