We have had a splendid couple of days at The Gurnard’s Head Hotel near Zennor. Everything about this hotel is conducive to a relaxing and happy stay – the food is splendid, the towels big and soft, the log fire welcoming, the staff friendly and helpful. It made for a lovely way to celebrate the lovely Mr S’s birthday.

After a delicious breakfast we set off to re-discover the Zennor Mermaid at St Senara Church, had a walk, very cold and windy but dry, down the valley and were home in time for a late lunch. Click on any photo for the caption and a larger view.
