Wednesday 22nd September – Bus to Penzance
The bus stop to take us to Penzance was on the street in front of the Queens Arms. This journey was a lot less fraught than the previous one to St. Ives. We didn’t know what to expect in Penzance having never been there before. The bus took us past all the shops and we left at the bus station by the harbour.
We walked up the main street and visited the shops there and in the outlet shop even bought a collection of designer jumpers and tops. At the top of the street we turned up the pedestrian precinct and tried to call in a café at the top. They were extremely reluctant to serve us with just coffee. Our advice would be to avoid this place if ever you visit Penzance.
Hellys Deli Bar Cafe
We continued to explore and had decided that enough was enough and were heading back to the bus station when cam across Hellys Deli Bar Cafe and decided to have a coffee. The menus looked so good we had lunch instead. This was excellent and served with such friendly people quite in contrast to the other place.
We caught the next bus and sitting upstairs I grabbed some views of the main street as we left.
The bus took a detour off the main road to St Just as it emerged from one of the streets this carved tree came into view.
Wednesday 22nd September – Botallack
Once we were back at the cottage we collected our books and sat outside. This is how close the bus comes as it passes!
Fabulous food and great service
We sat outside and to have coffees but after seeing the menu we switched to have salads for lunch and a glass of beer. Our salads came quickly and were excellent. Despite everywhere inside and outside being full, everyone who served us were so friendly.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough.
(apologies for late review)
This is our busy last day in Cornwall.
