Autumn breaks, fiery sunsets and village chat

St Michael's Mount at sunsetAs September draws on, the mind wanders towards autumn and perhaps the prospect on one last short break before the “C” word is mentioned The soft autumn sunshine is perfect here in Cornwall for exploring the coastal path with is secret coves and trawling the waters edge with only the sea birds for company. For the days ahead when Cornwall can still hint of summer and the frost seldom forms, we have a special offer of Autumn and Winter three day break reductions. Also this week I’ve shared my favorite sunset photos taken from Ednovean farm and a little bit of news from Perranuthnoe.

Autumn three day breaks

My winter beaters three day breaks are a great way to see West Cornwall after the bustle of the main season the country lanes lay quiet and the coastal footpath empties with silent beaches the haunt of the sea birds yet again. To gain a £10 reduction per night, just reserve three days of or more on our free to book reservation page and the reservation will show the reduction on the final total.

It’s all in the sunset

Who can resist a sunset at the end of a relaxing day. The final fiery offering of nature that puts our world to bed. I often walk across the Ednovean farm Gardens and meet our guests cameras in hand strolling back from capturing the moment that crowns the day. If you’ve followed my sunset pictures on facebook you’ll have noticed the inexorable shift in the position from around Christmas time at the far point across the bay to way to the west setting over the high moors that separate us from St Ives in the height of Summer. Now the sun is moving back and I walked up to the top of the hill in in of the Ednovean farm fields the other night for a different view down over the village and out to sea.

Village chat!

A very big congratulations to the Victoria Inn who have won the Good Pub Guide dining Pub of the year for the second year running  – no wonder our guests are enjoying their suppers there!

Further afield at Prussia Cove the International Musicians Seminar is in full swing We often have guests who stay and enjoy the chance to sit in on the master classes in the spring or attend the rehearsals in the autumn – a feast for devotees of Chamber music.

and finally

If you have stayed at Ednovean farm you may have met our Spanish Stallion Danilon. He loves to charm the ladies into buying him polo mints and carrots and occasionally we give a short display of his classical in hand work around the car park for his new friends.
