Stayed : Brittania Inn, Tregrehan Cornwall. (Brits Stay) free.
The original purpose of travelling to Lydford was to cycle a section of the British National Cycleway #27 ‘The Granite Way’. We had seen it on some documentary and thought why not. Following an old railway line the gradients should be reasonable and they were, 5 miles up hill and 5 miles down each way. Then Brett Johnston and old friend says you need to do Lydford Gorge while your there. So after a long bike ride in the morning we followed it up with a strenuous but very beautiful 2 hour walk around the Lydford Gorge in the afternoon.
It’s time to move on again, we point the Hymer west and make our way into west Cornwall. We notice the farms and hedgerows don’t look as green, must have had less rain over this way. There are two Brits Stops over near St. Austell and we head for the Britannia Inn. After a quick discussion with the landlord we are parked up in field behind the pub with two other motorhomes and a good night sleep followed.
