What's great in Cornwall throughout the Winter...
Great in Cornwall Photo   Great in Cornwall Photo   Great in Cornwall Photo
This year Christmas officially starts in Cornwall on Wednesday 20th November with Truro City of Lights festival. For those less inclined to join in the festive spirit, The Lost Gardens of Heligan have two events in December that do not mention the C word. See below for more details. 
However much we love living in deepest darkest Cornwall even in the winter, a touch of variety is always welcome. Dig out your wooly mitts and pop along to The Eden Project Ice Rink, open until 2nd March 2014. They offer beginners' sessions, Ice Discos and new this year rink-side food. Booking is advisable, and well worth it! 

On a more traditional note, Truro Primestock Show takes over Truro Piazza on Wednesday 4th December. A perfect opportunity to break up the monotony of Christmas Shopping, or to show the little ones some livestock without wading through acres of mud! Truro's Victorian Christmas Market returns for a 9th year from 10th - 15th December. Featuring two distinct displays, one food & drink hall and one arts and crafts hall. To replenish the tired shopper there is also a cafe serving tea and cakes as well as full meals. 

This year Penzance Town Council have upped the ante and are providing new lights for the whole town. Switching on takes place on 30th November from 4.15pm at the Wharfside Shopping Centre. We'll be interested to know if they can rival those of neighbouring Mousehole Lights, whose unique display is detailed below. 

We've been busy these last few months taking on a host of wonderful new properties (see the splendid new collection at Mawgan Porth below) and making sure prices and availability for 2014 are all up to date. Many of our most popular properties are booking fast for the peak season. If there is a property you would like to return to or are looking to venture somewhere new this year, do not hesitate to email us for availability and/or suggestions. We are still keeping you up to date on our Facebook Page with loads of lovely pictures and offers.

The Mousehole Christmas Lights team have already started work on this year's display. The switch on is Saturday 14th December at 7.30pm. The display lasts until 4th January 2014. The lights display is incredibly popular for the duration they are alight but well worth the trip down west. We recommend a fish and chip supper as you walk around the village.

The Crown Inn, Cornwall - Great Food, Drink & Accommodation
The Crown Inn, Lanlivery is one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall offering relaxed bed & breakfast accommodation near to St Austell, Bodmin, the Eden Project, Lostwithiel, Lanhydrock & Fowey. Our b&b is more relaxed than a hotel and has more to offer than a guest house - what better place to enjoy some great Cornish hospitality!

Sympathetically restored to its original style, the bar is an atmospheric place to enjoy a drink or a meal alongside our roaring log fires. We are open every day for lunch, afternoon drinks and dinner.

Located close to the historic town of Lostwithiel, the pub is within easy reach of some of the biggest attractions in Cornwall, particularly the Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and the harbour town of Fowey. Charlestown, Bodmin Moor, Looe & Polperro are only a short drive away.
