The National Trust property Godolphin was just a few miles from where we were staying near Helston (NW of Helston if you are looking at the map) and I had been looking forward to visiting. Unfortunately it became a case of dodge the showers as we walked round the gardens so it would have been nice to spend more time there.
The house is a two story building most of which is closed to the public as it is used as a holiday let.
The gardens looked lovely considering it was September and raining!
At St Erth there is a large park and ride where you can leave your car and take the train for a 10 minute ride to St Ives. We did not spend much time in St Ives as it was incredibly busy and we didnt feel like battling through crowds to get to see anything. However, took a few pictures of the harbour which is very picturesque.
Going back on the train we sat on the left hand side so had amazing views of Carbis Bay across to Hayle which was well worth the trip. Unfortunately train windows not clean enough for photographs!
We visited Marazion and looked across to St Michaels Mount.
