We drove further south in hope of finding surf and possibly some sunshine. Driving out of the bad weather we detoured via Saint Ives for lunch. Having such big cars we were not able to drive right into town but from where we parked it was a pretty incredible view anyway. We arrived at Sennen Cove in the late afternoon and the boys ...
... Bronze age. A church and abbey were built after the Norman invasion over 900 years ago. There has also been a fort here and it is a now a family home.
After time spent exploring, the tide had come in and we had to catch the little boat back to the mainland .. and a yummy afternoon tea of crab sandwiches!!
... which is amazing! And watched the lunch time organ recital! By Roger Judd. He seems a pretty big deal, he has awards and honors from the queen etc. it was amazing! So no hostels in Truro, another camping ground it is then! And more rain! But it's ok, the hot showers there were life changing! In the morning I took the 7am bus into town, to catch the national express coach to ...
... for the van. That afternoon Luke, Kate and the kids found us and we enjoyed our first night together. The following day wasn't the best weather and the boys were quite shattered with the weather and lack of surf. Because of this we decided to head on further south to find some ...
... has been good, hot but with a nice breeze. Not an action packed day but I was pleased to complete 22 miles with no more than a small blister and a sore little toe.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Haven Hotel & Restaurant Marazion
This is a wonderful hotel, in a superb location, in beautiful Cornwall.
My partner and I stayed for a week for our honeymoon, and we could not of made a better choice.
Although my initial reaction on seeing the outside was "oh no, what have I done??" it turned out to be very nice inside. It's modern, but comfortable and cosy with it, with a gorgeous garden. The large sitting area has a huge glass window with fantastic views. A lot of thought and effort has gone into decorating the hotel, including vases, cutlery, etc. Our room was nice, with a brand new bathroom, and a huge shower, but watch out for the beds. If you like very soft beds, fine, otherwise you might have a problem. I couldn't sleep on it. As my boyfriend said, it was like sleeping on a marshmallow. I don't think that all the mattresses are the same, so perhaps you just need to ask for a room with a normal mattress. The breakfast was great, and was served very quickly. The dinner was a disappointment, but it is possible that that was because it was an unusually quiet evening. The fish was good, but too salty, while the risotto was completely overcooked. The hotel was very good about changing things on the menu, and my boyfriend's steak was good. Still, the coffee was surprisingly good and the organic ice cream fabulous. The owners are very nice and made us feel very at home. I would definitely come back.
The Mounthaven Hotel is a special place.
I have had the pleasure of staying at the hotel on several occasions and would recommend to all.
The management and staff are welcoming, friendly and charming. Accomodation is nothing less than luxurious, fluffy pillows and a fat matress guarantee a good nights sleep. Waking in the morning with sea views and St Michaels Mount is a great way to start the day. The food is excellent and the puddings magnificent.
I look forward to returning soon and enjoying the experience again.
Can't wait t o go back
Fantastic ambience, great views and the managemnet are just superb.
Food was excellent and at a very resonable price for teh area.
I would recommend anybody to spend at least a couple of nights here if they can't get more time off worki.
Heaven at the Haven
My partner and I stayed at The Mount Haven last
August. It is without a doubt one of the most freindly, relaxing and comfortable hotels we have stayed in.
The food is excellent, the staff are so efficient and freindly and the owners Mike and Orange Trevillion
have a single purpose which is to make your stay
as perfect as possible.
We have booked 9 rooms in July to celebrate my 60th Birthday with close freinds. The choice I was given was Portugal or Cornwall.
Alittle piece of heaven on earth.
This place is beyond words. You have to EXPERIENCE it.
From the kind and helpful reception you get from the owners and staff, to the luxurious rooms with the most comfortable beds, to the deliciously fresh food, the stress busting 'treatments' and most stunning of all the magnificent views of St. Michaels mount, everyting about this hotel is wonderful and most pleasantly, reasonably priced.
We were made to feel so welcome that our original 'one night stopover' turned into a fabulous 3 night vacation.
'The perfect place to be' (as their brochure so aptly puts it) to escape, relax and rejuvinate.
I defy anyone who visits not to return. We have.
Wife's birthday made wonderful
To say we had a wonderful time would be the understatement of the decade. Both room and food were of the highest standard's. I would recomend this hotel & restaurant to anyone who prefer's the better thing's in life.
Stunning views, elegant accomodations, sophisticated dining
During our 10-day visit in the UK (May 2004), the highlight our trip was undoubtedly our stay at the Mount Haven Hotel. The beds are heaven -- the views are celestial. The staff is gracious and welcoming. We had our best meals at the hotel as well. It is a fine place as a base of exploration of southern Cornwall.
If you seek holistic treatments, they are available to you as well. The mystery of the Mount combined with the comfort and warmth of this charming facility equals 2 happy guests who will be returning.
