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 […]

A guide to the best cream teas in Fowey

July 4th, 2012

Cupcake and champagne

A wise person once said “Life’s too short to not eat cake.” It’s a motto we abide to in Cornwall and just one of the reasons why there are cream teas around every corner, plus the fact they’re irresistable! It’s compulsory to indulge in a cream tea when on holiday in Cornwall after all – an unwritten law you might say (there exists one for the Cornish pasty too!). A cream tea is the perfect brunch, lunch, afternoon snack or welcome back if you’re […]

Penthouse lounge

Does the sound of a mini break without children have you wide-eyed, excited and raring to go? “I feel normal again” Mrs S said having spent 3 idyllic nights in the penthouse. “No rushing around or animals in the bed, it’s been amazing!” She woke to champagne and handmade cards addressed to ‘mummy’ – we wonder who put those there?

Or is it all simply a con to make us pay more for the food we eat? We took to the narrow Cornish streets of picturesque Fowey to ask passers-by what they thought. Here’s what they had to say: Would you prefer a restaurant to have local produce […]
