We will have 5 days in Cornwall in mid-June, and I'm having quite a time deciding how to use it. I've come up with reasonable accommodation possibilities both right in St Ives and in Penzance, and can't figure out which would be the better base. Is it better to be based in St. Ives and have to drive out to other parts of the peninsula, or be based in Penzance and want to go to St Ives a few times? (Thinking of traffic congestion and parking) The other part of the question is this - should we use all five days in one or the other, or maybe 3 days in this area and then move a couple of hours east to see another part of Cornwall? Is 5 days too much? (Don't scold me - I've never been there before - Canadian.....) We love scenic walks, quaint towns, galleries and crafts, and have a membership to National Trust. Any suggestions would be grand. I should add that we are driving down from Wales, so will spend some time along the north coast on the way. Thanks for your help!
