Why wait until summer? There is plenty to do in England’s most South West county in the quieter months.

Eat

You are spoilt for choice for excellent eateries when you are staying with us. Off the top of our heads here are a few restaurants. Next on our list of places to try is Treguddick Distillery, which is just down the road. It looks a bit different, and gets great reviews locally. Having opened in 2022 in Launceston CoFo, the Cornwall Focaccia company sells a range of tempting looking options, not just bread! They are located centrally in or lovely market town, and open for lunch and selected evenings and have a diners club. Bring your own alcohol. We are always happy to suggest places to eat depending on what type of meal you are after, just ask us for local advice.

Walk

Grab a woolly hat, slip on your wellies and head out for a stomp along the clifftops. There is nothing like the salty air and stunning views to clear the mind and energise. Some of our favourites are the descent (and then brutal ascent!) down to Millook, don’t forgot to check out the amazing geology in the rocky cliffs. Boscastle is always to fun explore. The Strangles is always a rewarding outing. The cliffs at Bossiney are also well worth a trip, the water colour is stunning.

Ice Skating

Book a spin on the glittering ice rink at the Eden Project and embrace the older months. Get your skates on and have some fun while getting some exercise at this unique venue. Open from October – February, a variety of types of sessions are offered so everyone is catered for. Our kids love it and have already been asking when they can go this year!

Beachcomb

Hit the beach just after a storm and see what the tide has washed in. This is always a great time to find sea glass and driftwood which are great to collect for art and craft projects. You never know what treasures and trash you will find. From random shoes to lego why not see who can find the most unusual and bizarre item. If you are feeling in the mood you could also do a beach clean. Every bit of rubbish and plastic removed from the beaches makes it better for the future of our oceans.

Fire

Find a fire to get cosy in front of. Lots of local pubs have roaring fires with glowing embers which are great spots for relaxing and chasing away the November chills with a cheeky glass of something. 2 of our 4 cottages have log burners in, so in Godrevy Barn and Morvoren Cottage you don’t even need to leave the farm to get roasty toasty.
