Let me send you a postcard from Mousehole this week, sent from the idyllic former fishing village, beguilingly set around a Cornish harbour just a seagull’s wing across Mounts Bay from us here at Ednovean Farm.
Mousehole is enchanting in the spring, buzzing quietly in the summer and from the picture perfect harbour framed by pretty, former fishermen’s cottages, to the narrow winding streets that have been part of the battle of Cornwall, Mousehole has so much to offer a visitor to West Cornwall.

The end of the day at Mousehole harbour
There is certain mellowness about those dusky evenings, when the winter storms are spent and the summer sea laps languidly against ancient harbour walls. Here in west Cornwall we are spoilt with so many lovely sheltered harbours to visit for a seafood supper and we recently made our way around Mounts Bay to renew our acquaintance with Mousehole and Newlyn.

We had a longing for a treat this week and chose the Mackerel sky seafood bar in Newlyn for supper. After all, where would we find fresher fish than the nearest fishing port just across the bay from us where fish are auctioned at the market and sent to France, Spain and Portugal!
Now it is not possible to book a table at this little tapas bar but after a tour of likely parking places in Newlyn we not only found the very last free spot in the car park but strolled into the restaurant to find the last two seats at a window bench. How lucky that was! Continue reading “Supper at the Mackerel Sky Seafood bar, Newlyn” »
We enjoyed watching the ever changing tide around St Michael’s Mount and the sunset, from the terrace of The Godolphin Arms in Marazion, along with a seaside supper of traditional Fish and Chips the other evening.
Our evening was made even more special by the beautiful sailing boat moored just off of the mount but for once I had forgotten the camera and for me the sight of the elegant lugger sitting, on the mirror calm seas like a ghost of the past and so I deposited Charles at the Godolphin and quickly drove took the five minutes home to retrieve the camera.

We enjoyed a lobster supper accompanied with a beautiful sunset over the sea last night, when we ate supper at Ben Tunnicliffe’s new restaurant at Sennen Beach
It was a significant birthday for Charles and I was thrilled when he choose Ben’s because we used to enjoy his cooking at the Michelin starred Abby restaurant in Penzance (We had fewer horses then!) many years ago. Continue reading “Lobster with a sunset” »
Welcome to our little black book of “Great places to eat that are close to Ednovean Farm.”
One of the first questions I’m asked by our Bed and Breakfast guests is “Can you recommend a good restaurant for tonight” and as I mentioned yesterday I can often write the “tale of seven restaurants” by the time I’ve secured a brilliant table for our new guests.
So here are a few suggestions for your notebook before your stay, starting with the ones within walking distance of Ednovean Farm on Perranuthnoe and then out and about in West Cornwall. Each entry has a link to their own web site (if there is one available!)
