So Spring has definitely sprung in Cornwall and what better way to enjoy it than to grab the dogs and go for a walk.
Carnanton woods on the outskirts of St Columb Major is a regular dog walk for us with its gentle streams and lush green fields filled with pheasants.There is always something to see and the doggies love all the different scents and little paths to track.It was truly very beautiful today with the sun glistening through the trees, vibrant Daffodils lining the hedgerows and the strong smell of wild garlic.The fields full of sheep and their baby lambs hopping around, playing with their siblings in the sunshine. The dogs were amazed by lambs and loved watching them frolic.Half way through the woods, Stu and I (and the dogs) were enjoying it so much, we decided to carry on down into the small village of St Mawgan.St Mawgan is a very sweet village with a small post office, a café serving cream teas and a stunning 13th century church.
At the end of the woods there is a path that leads directly into a gravelled car park, which backs onto my favourite pub, The Falcon Inn. The Falcon Inn dates back all the way from the 14th century, and was once famous for holding wrestling matches during the 18th century.If you’re looking for the perfect short escape The Falcon Inn is the place. They’re dog friendly, have a great range of ales and ciders, great food and a tranquil beer garden full of flowers.A real pub-lovers delight, unspoilt with heaps of character and a cobbled courtyard.Also you won’t get phone signal, perfect if you want to digitally disconnect, but if you really need to, the pub provides Wi-Fi.
Stu and I decided to have a sneaky pint in the sun whilst the dogs explored the beer garden; after a quick refuel we then headed back the way we came to get back home.In total we walked 4 ½ miles, so with three tired dogs and humans, we ended the walk with a nice brew on the couch. My perfect way to unwind and have quality time with Stu.
