Daphne Du Maurier’s Cornwall

March 28th, 2014

When we heard that the BBC had commissioned a three part adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s gothic novel Jamaica Inn we were very excited.  Although Bodmin Moor and Launceston were inspirations for the novel, du Maurier lived and wrote here in Fowey from a young age. Du Maurier once said: “Fowey has a magic all of its own” and we definitely agree. Our town is scattered with cornerstones of both the authors life and works, so we’ve traced a timeline of our […]

A Winter walk – Polruan to Bodinnick

February 7th, 2014

We may be in the throes of winter but you can’t beat a bracing walk in the elements along Cornwall’s coastline. One of our favourite routes is Hall walk, a three mile route from Polruan to Bodinnick, which takes about two hours to complete.  It is a moderate walk, with plenty of vantage points along the way. We recommend that you start in Polruan and finish in Bodinnick, so you can treat yourself to a rewarding pitstop at The Old […]

Five of the best restaurants to visit during January

January 17th, 2014

We love the mix of gastronomy Cornwall has to offer; however during January, it is often hard to find restaurants open as many close for refurbishment or a well-earned break. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite restaurants which remain open for business to help keep the winter blues at bay.   Fifteen Cornwall We couldn’t leave Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall at Watergate […]
