On Saturday we decided to head out to our favourite place, Mount Edgcumbe country park in Cornwall for some exercise and fresh air. It is such a gorgeous place to visit and the boys especially love all the space to run and around and climb.
We spent a good hour in the parks hidden garden which contains the old bath house, cork trees and gorgeous camellias. Saturday was extremely windy so we made good use of the shelter from the hedges which surround the garden. They also made a perfect sun trap so we loved laying on the grass and played a few games around the trees without the chill of the wind.
After our relaxing time in the garden, we decided to hike up to the top of the park where ruins of an old folly sits on top of a hill, overlooking Plymouth. However, the wind was quite strong along the coastal path so the boys were not too keen and but they were excited when they finally reached the folly.
The Folly has gorgeous views of Drake's island, Plymouth sound, the breakwater and Embryo point. It is such a peaceful place to come to. The boys had lots of fun running up and down the steps pretending it was their castle and they had to save it from the dragons using their wands.
Although very windy, we had such a great day. We definitely deserved the ice cream we had on the way home after walking all those miles.
