Cornwall is full of places to feed your soul and put colour in your cheeks. Whatever the weather, a bracing walk along the cliffs or watching the waves will make you feel good about life.
It stays daylight longer in Cornwall than the rest of the country and the winter light is spectacular by the coast - it’s helped to create the thriving Cornish artist community. The county is oozing with creativity, with a huge choice of art and craft galleries, plenty of live music and an exciting programme at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall.
Famous for its gardens, Cornwall has many to choose from: the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the National Trust’s Trelissick on the shores of the River Fal and Glendurgan on the picturesque Helford River, to name but a few.
We’ve also got our fair share of attractions, most of which are open all year round: the world famous eco-attraction Eden, Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum, Newquay Zoo, the Blue Reef aquarium and for some industrial heritage, Geevor Tin Mine.
We mustn’t forget the food. As well as the timeless classics of the pasty and the cream tea, the seafood must be sampled. It’s not just the big name chefs like Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein and Michelin starred Ben Tunniciffe who offer a culinary treat: Kahuna on Newquay’s Tolcarne beach or Sam’s on the Beach at Polkerris are among the many gems to be found.
Not just a summer destination!
Ever visited Cornwall in the winter? If yes, you must be desperate to come back and if no, come and see what you’ve been missing!
Trust us, Cornwall in the winter can be equally as lovely as in the summer. Spring comes a little bit earlier here, with the daffodils arriving in January and the evenings beginning to draw out. We’ve even been known to get our flip flops out and eat pasties on the beach in February.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! So bring your hat, gloves and wellies and get ready to enjoy the great outdoors. And if you do get a bit cold or wet, it’s a good excuse to repair to a tea room for a cream tea. Or maybe a glass of red in front of a roaring fire.
We offer cottages in three of Cornwall’s prettiest locations: Crantock, Feock and The Camel Trail. Both gorgeous locations, they are very different in character. Crantock has a dramatic coastline, crashing surf and a huge beach to race about on. Feock, on the picturesque River Fal estuary, is more sedate with an ever-changing creek and lots of scenic walks. The Camel Trail is in the heart of Cornwall and close to everything. Famous for its walks and being able to cycle to Padstow in beautiful countryside.
