The Cliffs of Tintagel lie at the heart of a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’. Rich in flora and fauna they provide breeding grounds for sea birds, lizards and butterflies.Wild flowers and lichen grow among the rocks, created from layers of volcanic lava millions of years ago. Recent excavations made headlines worldwide with the discovery of the 'Artognou' stone, a 6th century inscribed slate. This led to speculation that Tintagel was a royal site for the early medieval rulers of Cornwall and has fuelled tantalising speculation about the castle's mythical Arthurian past. The 'Artognou' stone: Roman settlement, Dark Age stronghold, medieval fortress - Tintagel's history is fascinating and there are many secrets still to be revealed.For more information please visit http://bit.ly/2ce47a6#Family #DaysOut #Cornwall #SouthWest #ThingsToDo #TouristAttraction #TopAttractions #LoveCornwall #WhatToDoWithTheKids #GreatDaysOut #DiscoverKernow #SWisBest #Kernow #AmazingCornwall #ExploreCornwall

Twenty-seven years ago, the Lost Gardens of Heligan were re-discovered from the brambles of time. Over 200 acres are now a paradise for the explorer, wildlife, plant lover and garden romantic. Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Gardens beckon, along with winding paths laid out over two centuries ago.

As you walk around Lizard the colours around this cottage stop you in your tracks. Its not that there isnt any colour elsewhere in the village but it tends to be more conservative. Most of the cottage is painted in the vivid rasperry colour and completely adorned with colourful flowers and bouys.

A more sanguine view of the old lifeboat house. Its a shame it has fallen into disrepair. So many appear to have been adopted as Art Galleries or Restaurants and the like. This view shows the hazards that the crew would face when launching most likely with the wind and the sea driving against them. Easy to forget on an idyllic day like this.

Lizard Point is the most southerly tip of mainland UK. It sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean. This is the old Lifeboat House which has fallen into disrepair. Built onto a very rugged piece of shoreline it's not difficult to imagine that, in the days before cars just getting to the Lifeboat in poor weather would have been an adventure, let alone putting to sea.

Porthleven Harbour. Built 200 years ago to provide shelter for ships and boats from Atlantic Storms. The first stage, seen here, took 14 years to construct. These days it's also a wonderful place to kick back and relax. Sanctuary of a different kind.

When a storm is coming most birds seek shelter, while others soar above it. Problems are common to all living things but attitude makes the difference
