Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2016! We hope you have time to relax with family and friends over Christmas. We have some cottages sleeping 2 and 4 available over Christmas and New Year so please get in touch if you are looking for a last minute break (minimum 3 nights).
There is a definite chill in the air now in the mornings. We’ve been having some beautiful sunny weather, great for walking on the coastal path. We’ve closed the pool now until next Easter which always makes me feel that the end of summer has definitely arrived. On the plus side, this is a good time of year for warming up in the hot tub or by the woodburner after a bracing walk on the beach. Woodburners are available in three of our cottages – Manor, Parsons and the Farmhouse. If you are looking for a winter break we offer short breaks (minimum 2 nights) from November to March.
We have some availability in cottages for two, including short breaks. FAMILY COTTAGES ARE NOW ALL BOOKED FOR THE WEEK. Close to the beautiful North Cornwall coast and Bude. Surfing, other watersports and pony trekking available locally. We have a tennis court, hot tub, games room and play area on site.
There is lots on locally over the half term week. Visit Tintagel Old Post Office (National Trust) for Halloween trails www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tintagel-old-post-office/. Find out about Myths and Legends at Tintagel Castle (English Heritage) 27-29 October www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/tintagel-castle/. Further afield, there is a Spooky Trail at Lanhydrock (National Trust) www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lanhydrock/ and lots on at the Eden Project, where the ice rink will also be open www.edenproject.com
There are lots of foody events over the next month, starting with the second Bude for Food festival 18-20 September. Last year’s event was a great day out, with lots of lovely food and a good atmosphere, helped by fantastic late September sunshine.
The Boscastle Food, Arts and Crafts Festival runs over the weekend of 3-4 October. Further afield, the Eden Project is less crowded out of season and there is lots going on between 10-27 September at the Eden Project Festival of Food followed by the Eden Project Beer Festival on 3 October. Short breaks available (minimum 2 nights) in our cottages in September and October.
