Ideal Mother’s Day Treat!

Why not book a short break away for Mum next Mother’s Day? I’m sure she would love to be waited on with our homecooked English breakfast with our own farm eggs!

And there are many local restaurants if you want to treat her to lunch also, or enjoy a stimulating walk on the coastal path. Or just relax on the farm with a gentle stroll around the Trelew Nature Trail

Newlyn Fish Festival

August Bank Holiday Monday, 27th August 2018

For fish fans, you can see one of the biggest displays of fish, watch a rolling programme of cookery demos by top local chefs and see the Cornish Fishmonger of the Year competition. There are three music stages, plenty of boats including luggers, gigs, fishing boats, lifeboats and jet skis, a DVD show, and lots of arts and crafts.

The Fish Tales Tent has some of the best local story-tellers and there is plenty of fun for kids with bouncy castles, face-painting, crazy theatre and the ever-popular Fishy Trail.

It all happens on August Bank Holiday Monday, in and around the harbour in Newlyn, just west of Penzance. From the A30, follow the signs to the Newlyn Fish Festival and look out for temporary car parks.

Doors open at 09:00 and close at 17:00. Admission is £5. Under 16s are free.

Port Eliot Festival

26th to 29th July, 2018

This four-day is a magical combination of books, food, music, art, comedy, fashion, films, flowers, wildlife and water, which defies categorisation. Held in the spectacular grounds of the ancient Port Eliot estate in southeast Cornwall (the oldest continually inhabited dwelling in the UK), the festival provides inspiration and surprises for all ages at every turn.

Over the years new areas have been added, broadening the appeal to younger audiences and others who might never have considered coming to a literary festival before – including the immensely popular Ace of Clubs and Boogie Round tents (where you’ll dance late into the night).

There is also the “Caught by the River” stage, where some of the best emerging acts have their festival debut before rising on up to greatness.
