A short while ago I mentioned that, for a change of scenery, we stayed in a cottage for a week at Poughill (pronounced puffil) on Cornwall's north coast. I've done several posts about the area recently and places we visited such as, Tintagel, Boscastle, Bude and so on.
Often though, in the evenings, we would wander the lanes around Poughill - so here's a flavour of the area. The thatched cottages above were in the heart of the village by St.Olaf's church - but the building below wasn't quite as idyllic!
Still in the main village, a row of cottages ...
... a house where jams are made and sold ...
... and then there is the Post Office and St, Olaf's church ...
... and, of course, a pub / inn -the Preston Gate Inn.
Once out of the village, and walking along the nearby lanes, there are distant views of the sea and headland. The photos were taken on different days and at different times.
Green fields in abundance ...
... with a few cottages and houses scattered about.
The hedgerows were full of wild flowers.
More sheep with their markings.
Some of the animals have glorious views.
Most were friendly.
And finally the narrow lane leading to the cottage where we stayed - wild garlic everywhere. Was lovely to spend some time on Cornwall's north coast. We live on Cornwall's south coast.
