Mousehole in March

As we always say, Cornwall is awesome no matter the time of year and this March had some extra special sunny days once again. On a rare day off, Team RAAR headed out for a day to Mousehole via Penzance. Getting the bus from Penzance lets you enjoy the views over Newlyn and Mounts Bay on the way there and means you don't have to tackle the narrow roads…

Trencrom Hill Sunshine Walk

Neolithic Ancient Cornish site with views to the North and South Coasts. The young Virginia Woolf used to enjoy 'Sunday Tramping' to Trencrom with her family when she summered in St. Ives as a child. You can walk from St. Ives or if you want to have more time exploring and enjoying the views there are car parks and laybys near the base of the hill. Also if you…

Gwithian in February

This February Cornwall has had some amazing weather, much warmer than normal and days of sunshine. Any year it is worth making the most of the sunny Winter days as the Cornish landscape is stunning year round and normally isn't as crowded as during the Summer months. Gwithian Beach as the tide goes out Gwithian and Godrevy beaches are tidal beaches, when the tide is out there are miles…

Stacking Robots

One of our favorite products is the RAAR classic Wooden Stacking Robots, great for all ages and over the years have kept Angela and Chris amused on many occasions. They are great for brain development with 3D awareness, hand-eye coordination and balancing skills all required for creating interesting builds with the robots. They often venture outside and like enjoying the sunshine and views around St. Ives.

How Many Beaches are in St. Ives?

After looking at some reviews of St. Ives on Google which only gave 1 star Chris decided to investigate further...... It seems that a few people who visit St. Ives only visit a tiny, tiny part of it!!!!! Some of the people who awarded St. Ives only a single star complained about the 'only beach' being a tidal harbour beach. This made Chris a bit sad as people visiting…

Penzance to Newlyn walk

We love Penzance, there are lots of great business and places to visit, Morrab Gardens being one of our favourite places to walk through. The sub-tropical gardens are beautiful and often full of colour and maintained well by volunteers and the Council. With fish ponds and plenty to look at we always try to at least walk through them when we visit Penzance. On this day we used Morrab…

Stormy Kynance Cove

An amazing National Trust cared for area. A car park is nearby (National Trust prices) or it is along the South West Coast Path. This was our first visit there (yep there are actually a lot of beaches we still haven’t been to yet). As normal for our first visit somewhere new the tide was on its way in and there was a slight storm in the air. As…

Love Cornwall whatever the Weather

Lots of people only think of Cornwall when the sun is shining and you can lounge around on the beach but there is so much more to Cornwall. When it’s a bit stormy there is a sense of power and awesomeness everywhere and as long as you are prepared it is just as great as when the sun shines. Year round there are incredible places to visit and seeing…
