Winter is a great time to visit Cornwall if you are looking for a relaxing break, without the crowds. If you like spending time by the coast, this is a perfect opportunity to wrap up warm and hit the beach. In contrast to the summer months, it is not uncommon to have certain beaches all to yourself at this time of year. Breathe in the fresh sea air and take in the sounds of the waves. Warm up afterwards with […]

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.
