Enjoy a day out at the Royal Cornwall Show – June 2018

Royal Cornwall Show

7th to 9th June, 2018

For three days each year, the dedicated showground at Wadebridge is transformed into a living town, bustling with life, energy, agriculture, entertainment and trade. It is a significant event in the Cornish calendar with around 130,000 people attending.

This has been Cornwall’s showcase since it was first held back in 1793 and as you’d expect from a county show, a fascinating glimpse into rural life in the county. Apart from the livestock judging, there is the famous flower tent decked out with wonderful displays from individuals and local nurseries. The main ring offers a full three days of entertainment featuring different headline acts each year, plus show jumping and a full programme of entertainment. There’s a major dog show, a traditional steam fair, the Cornwall Festival of Dance, and if that’s not enough then there’s the motor fair, agricultural machinery, crafts, health and beauty … in fact, something for all the family.

Calling all dance enthusiasts – save the date for Helston Flora day!

If you are planning to be in Cornwall on 6th May 2017, it’s worth a trip to see – or take part in Helston Flora Day.

As the town clock strikes midday, the elegant dance leaves the Guildhall – the men dressed in top hats and tails escorting their beautifully dressed ladies in the processional dance, accompanied by the Helston Town Band who play the traditional tune.

The band and dancers process around the four mile route, with a rhythm and beat that comes and goes throughout the day.  The streets of Helston echo to the sounds of enjoyment and happiness in celebration of a tradition that is steeped in history and receives such support and enthusiasm. Helston family members and friends will travel the world to be in the town for Flora Day.

Mothers Day Treat

Ideal Mother’s Day Treat!

Here’s an idea for a Christmas present! 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
