Padstaw, Trelissick, beaches and Minak Theatre - Cornwall Adventures

Monday 3 October 2022 Banbury, UK

A few weeks ago, my husband, kiddo and I packed all our tent stuff belongings and left our beautiful Costwold for Cornwall's charm and beautiful beaches. 


We stayed at the Treloy 4 stars family camping, with all amenities and especially perfect for kids with a large play area, swimming pool, and large field for kids to run.

Where to begin with this one? I'll describe it as the most beautiful outside theatre I have ever seen, the view is simply breathtaking, the theatre is absolutely beautiful full of beautiful well kept succulents and all sorts of cacti and plants and the staff is the loveliest.
My pictures below do not give justice to this outdoor theatre which is stunning. Trust me on that one.
The whole experience was just amazing. We decided to take our daughter to see a mid-afternoon kid plays and we weren't disappointed. All the kids loved it ( and so we did too as adults) the view was insanely beautiful and the whole experience was one of the best we experienced during our staycation. Also during the play, we got to see in the background seals playing in the shallow sea down the Clift. I mean what more to ask really? Amazing and I strongly suggest a visit don't be fooled the Minak theatre offers all sorts of different plays throughout their season for all tastes and ages. Don't forget to book way in advance as it's very popular.


We went to Padstow, a very charming port with lots of places to eat, cute shops from souvenirs, to art galleries, candy shops, clothes, etc, beautiful views, and a ferry that take you to the opposite side of the port where a pretty sandy beach awaits you, the ferry take less than 10 minutes and come and goes all day long. Padstow is always a place we visit when in Cornwall. Do try the Rick Stein pastry shop and his restaurant or café all excellent. 
For more about the Rick Steins café, see one of my old posts about it here


We wanted to see Land's End which like the name says is the last bit of land from Britain before our old island is hit by the Atlantic Ocean. The Land's end surrounding attractions have nothing special, they over prices and are full of tacky and pricey souvenirs, and the food available is just about ok with a not-so-friendly service if you wish to visit this area do not go for the attractions or food that I do not recommend (bring a picnic instead) but rather for the view which really is the main attraction.

Being owners of the National Trust membership card we decided to spend a day at the Trelissick house and garden, but mainly for the garden which is know to be absolutely stunning and the park itself is very large we all sort of plants from tropical to European.
We weren't one bit disappointed by the garden. The house itself is very pretty but only one room is available to visit and have to say the exterior and the garden are what really is worth and also the cafe located in the greenhouse and also had an outside part. We tried it and we weren't disapointed the food was generous and excellent and once again the staff were the loviest. 
As mentioned earlier the park is divided into different areas all very large, beautifully kept and just plain beautiful, from woody parts to orchard, tropical area, etc. a pleasure for the eyes and so for the sense too, I highly recommend a visit for the garden.

During our holiday we also went to visit a Japanese Garden which you can find all their detail on how to get there etc here.
I love Japanese culture (see my japan travel blog post here) so of course, we decided to pay a visit to this beautiful garden. 
This charming garden is so green, so calm, and definitely gives you the sense to be in Japan. We absolutely love the pond full of hundreds of oi fishes, along with all the small paths way where you never know what you will discover at each corner from the Japanese buddha statue or lanterns. This garden is a little heaven for wildlife and to find a little piece of shade during a hot summer day, don't forget to visit the shop that offers hundreds of Bonzai for all budgets, succulent and indoor or outdoor plants along with all sorts of Japanese ornaments from garden lanterns, statues, cards, fan, crystals etc. 


Thanks for reading.
