Is it autumn yet?

Should we say it is autumn yet I wonder? Well this week summer blew Cornwall a parting kiss and delivered blues skies, warm seas and gorgeous sunshine to the days, as we drift between the meteorological* autumn and the autumn equinox* in the hinterland known as late summer.

These balmy late summer days are just perfect to walk along the tranquil coastal footpaths and soak up the sun on the empty beaches, so join me in this week’s blog to explore a secluded cove in the shadow of St Michael’s Mount and watch dusk fall over a fish supper in Marazion, as summer blows a parting kiss.

Two harbours – two great seafood suppers

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.

Supper in Porthleven

light reflected in a harbour - PothlevenWe visited Porthleven on a silky smooth night this week to celebrate Charles’s birthday with supper in one of the fish restaurants that cluster around the harbour there.  This ancient harbour town is only about fifteen to twenty minutes drive from us at Ednovean farm and perfect for an evening out for us not to far away but a real change of scenery!

Porthleven is quickly turning into a foodie destination, with some great fish restaurants clustered around the harbour, making it a just perfect for promenades well into the evening. I included several of the chic owner run restaurants around the harbour, in my “Little Black Book” for our Bed and Breakfast guest to scroll though and always love to add a nice photo or two or a new recommendation, if I get a chance to visit them too!

Lobster with a sunset

The sun setting over the sea as we ate our supper at ben Tunicleffe's restaurant in West CornwallWe 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” »

Great places to eat close to Ednovean Farm West Cornwall

Kitchen_A05Welcome 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!)
