About Cornish lifestyle, design and travel blogger Melissa Carne

Hello, my name is Melissa Carne and I am a Cornish lifestyle, travel and design blogger. In addition I am also a freelance graphic designer and photographer based in Cornwall, UK.

The Cornwall blog

I started this blog in 2017 to post about my favourite Cornish destinations to help locals and tourists alike find the best: Cornish beaches, attractions, towns and National Trust properties. As well as informing and reporting on Cornish events happening in the county and supporting Cornish brands. 

As a Cornish blogger I have been fortunate enough to work with brands such as: Penguin Random HouseLighthouse Clothing and Weird Fish. Furthermore, if you are interested in collaborating with me please visit my services page or give me an email at: blog@melissacarne.co.uk


I love an adventure and often travel to various locations all around the world. Likewise I enjoy photographing and documenting my travel experiences and sharing them with you on my blog. Please check out my most recent trips travelling around Australia and New Zealand.
