Lanhydrock stately home.(Near Bodmin.)
The shipwreck and heritage centre at Charlestown.

Both well worth a visit,Lanhydrock is a brilliant example of the British Stately Home,an interesting way to see how the Victorians lived,and award winning gardens.
The Heritage Centre at Charlestown is a brilliant place to visit,literally thousands of of artifacts taken from shipwrecks around the World.

Agree with you there the Bowgie is fantastic. The view of Crantock beach, the coastline and the sea are breathtaking.

If you're ever near Padstow go to to Rock, the beach is lovely.

Totally back you up with those choices matey!

I'm from Cornwall (St Agnes) and spent my formative and teenage years frequenting both these places, seeing some great bands, getting p**sed on cheap cider, arguing over designated drivers and making the most of drunken gropes outside with girls from college. Fast forward 15 years and thank fcuk I've got a good memory that's all I can say! I can also heartily recommend Bude or Widemouth Bay on the North Coast, where I had a good couple of years slacking by the beach.

Sadly I now live on the 'wrong side of the tamar' in Devon but am always down there seeing friends, family and lots of the arts/cultural organisations through my day job. There is lots of cool cheap/free stuff to experience and I'm even getting married there in November, so yep - it's a great place and not backwards at all. Much.
It's my fave place after Kinnerton in Chester, my old over-priced pseudo posh gaff whilst at LEGO in the '90s.

Okay, you know as much about me as my inlaws now so back to the footy.....

Talking of which, I never thought I'd see it in my lifetime but Truro City FC (my other team I follow and see play) are only 2 steps away from CCFC now and in a far better shape with an English record-equalling 4 straight promotions and with more season tickets sold. Absolutely mad to think about it. But something nice to cling onto nonetheless in these troubled times (that's going back to the college girls at the Bowgie Inn again).

Steve

I quite like the Views of the towers in Stockton from the north yorkshire hills.
I can sit there for hours on end and pity the poor fookers down below.
