st ives and barbara hepworth

about an hours drive from padstow takes you to the furthest point of cornwall – st ives and penzance – 2 contrasting towns.  st ives is higgledy piggledy tiny cottages up and down and around the wonderful surrounding beaches – i have been once before in august, which was far too busy, but at this time of year it was perfect.  you must make a visit to the barbara hepworth house – see her sculptures, her home and workshop and her beautiful garden – all so inspirational!  the tate is closed for refurbishment until next spring, but the cafe at the top gives great views. have lunch at the porthgwidden beach cafe – delicious and right onto the beach.
