Cornish Cottage Holidays’
top shoulder season tips
Having something that stands out and sets your property apart is important, particularly during the shoulder seasons. Hot tubs often improve bookings; when prospective guests have the choice of staying somewhere with or without one, the property with will often secure the booking. Indeed, even though the weather is cooler this time of year, the chance to soak outdoors is extremely appealing. The Cornish Cottage Holidays team recommend having a cover or gazebo so that, even in the worst weather, your guests can enjoy the bubbles. Inside, a woodburner is also very tempting. Guests love nothing more t an co ing in ront o a ﬁre on a cold winter’s day. Or, why not create a cinema room with a smart speaker or surround sound? Couples and families alike can snuggle on the sofa and enjoy an experience they may not have at home. Gourmet popcorn or a quirky cocktail station can also be an unusual treat.
Guests will appreciate thoughtful touches to keep them warm during the colder months. Woolly hats, an umbrella, some wellies, or perhaps a co e o t ermo a to ta e on a crisp morning walk will undoubtedly make them feel special. Cornish Cottage Holidays suggest that, during the shoulder season, being open to ort rea can e ﬁ ga in o r bookings diary, as can accepting arrivals on any day of the week. But perhaps one of the best ways to secure more bookings during quieter periods is by being dog friendly. Added extras such as dog towels, bowls, throws and treats are also welcome additions, and when pet o ner ﬁn a o i a ome in ic both humans and hounds can relax, they often return time and time again!

A wreath above the bed adds height and some scented candles with essential oils bring out the festive scents to help you sleep.”

y l l a r u t a N TIMELESS For a look that promises to stand the test of time, what better choice than natural stone?
ABOVE The diversity of available colours may well surprise you
ere in the south west, a common goal among home improvers is achieving an interior look that matches their homes’ beautiful surroundings. And what better way to do this than using natural materials? Not only do natural patterns look great, the materials themselves are often robust enough to last for generations to come. One fantastic Cornish business that understands this is Kernow Stone. With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and thousands of happy customers across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, Kernow Stone supplies and installs gorgeous granite and quartz worktops, a e a nat ra tone a an oor tiles, house signs, slate sills and much more e ﬁrm a tra ing artner a over the world, including Brazil, India, Spain and Italy, from which it imports the most beautiful natural stone. “This means t at e not on o er ome o t e ﬁne t stone products on the market,” explains Tom Martin, “but also that we make what may once have seemed a pipedream an affordable reality for anyone embarking on a home improvement project.” It’s no wonder, then, that this exemplary Cornish business has continued to grow, and we weren’t at all surprised to learn
that earlier this year the team made an exciting move to new premises on Dudnance Lane, Redruth. The new site provides more factory space, a bigger showroom and, crucially, a more central and prominent location, making it easier than ever for you to see what Kernow Stone can bring to your home improvement project. Such growth, alongside recent investment in both the workforce and machinery, means that Kernow Stone is now able to serve more clients than ever before. And that’s not all. As Tom tells us: “The diversity of colours of granite now available is surprising, and it’s now more affordable than ever thanks to opening markets all around the world!” Whether you’re in search of a new worktop, tiles, or a stunning new natural tone oor i o re em ar ing on a ome improvement project this winter, be sure to pop into the new Kernow Stone showroom and discover what the friendly team of experts can do for you.

Experience the beauty of Trereife House, a Grade II listed manor house and estate located in Penzance.
ABOVE Discover the history and beauty of Trereife
he centuries old manor house of Trereife has been lovingly restored by the 7th generation of the family and current owners. The present owner, Tim Le Grice, descends from Charles Valentine Le Grice who arrived at Trereife in 1798. Luckily for us, the estate is now open to the public throughout the year, providing unique bed and breakfast accommodation, a stunning wedding venue or a stand-out events space. With four beautiful bed and breakfast rooms to choose from, you too can access the profound beauty of Trereife. The country house breakfast is reason to stay in itself, featuring homemade bread, homemade medlar jelly from trees found on the estate and locally sourced meat. Or, if you prefer to fend for yourselves on holiday, you also have the option to stay in one of the self-catering apartments. We hear from Tim’s son, Peter, who tells us: “The location affords easy access to the beaches and the many other holiday attractions Cornwall provides. We are also a convenient stop-off before a trip to the Isles of Scilly or an evening at The Minack Theatre.” The estate even offers parking at a small fee to visitors who are heading to the Isles of Scilly,
so you can be sure of your car’s safety while you’re away. As well as being able to experience Trereife through a stay in one of the gorgeous bedrooms, you can also book on to one of the house tours led by Tim, giving you the chance to learn about the estate’s history. And for even more of an overview of the estate, you can read Tim’s book, Trereife, soon to be published. Like the house, the garden has a story to tell. “There are several different varieties of medlar fruit in the gardens,” says Peter. “The crop is harvested in mid-autumn and used to make medlar jelly to have with cold meats and on toast.” The estate serves its jelly at breakfast and it’s also available to buy in jars to take home. “Whatever your interest is,” im ﬁni e e oo or ar to e coming you to our beautiful and much loved home.”

ABOVE Sally creates beautiful, original pieces from her studio in Bude RIGHT The Sea Collection incorporates raw and precious materials
Sally Napier’s beautiful jewellery collections are inspired by Cornwall’s wild Atlantic coast.
otted all across Cornwall are pockets of inspiring and talented craftspeople, creating beautiful and original pieces in various forms, each in their own unique way inspired by the stunning coast that surrounds us. One such person is jewellery designer, silversmith and regular on our ‘On display’ page, Sally Napier. Sally’s jewellery is designed and handcrafted with the emphasis on quality, attention to detail and keeping a contemporary edge. Drawing inspiration from everything from art, travels and country walks, to the seaside and graphic design, Sally’s designs range from geometric to organic shapes and colours. Each piece is created individually using a striking and contrasting combination of semi-precious stones, silver, gold, pebbles, sea glass, slate and freshwater pearls. Before setting up her own studio, Sally completed her BA (Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing at De Montford University and worked for various jewellery designers, gaining knowledge and experience both in London and Hong Kong. Now, Sally Napier Jewellery is sold at fashion boutiques, design galleries and exhibitions, and she also works to commission with both private and commercial clients. Sally moved to Marhamchurch near Bude in an er or a een ge in ence by living near the wild Atlantic coast. Her new range, ‘The Sea Collection’, incorporates raw and precious materials sitting next to each other in timeless and exquisite designs, capturing the essence of the sea and its dramatic shores. Expertly set within bangle, bracelet, earring, necklace and pendant designs, these pieces promise to make the perfect Christmas gift this year for that special someone. We particularly love her tidal bangles; inspired by the ebbing o o t e ti e t e ca t re t e re ection and movement of the sea beautifully. Among other shops and galleries, Sally also sells her work in Bude’s Jaunty Seagull. This beautiful shop supports local artists and sells a variety of jewellery, art and ceramics. Dive into the deep blue with stunning sea-inspired jewellery on her website or contact Sally to meet her in person in the studio, see her work, and discuss a commission or repair.

A WINTER Head to the Jewellery Workshop in Porthleven to discover the perfect gift this Christmas.
t’s the season for good tidings, for the exchange of gifts and for spending time with our families. ere omet ing on er a o t ﬁn ing INSET the perfect gift, and the look of delight on our Clair and Paul outside the inviting loved ones’ faces as they open their present is shop in Porthleven hard to beat. If you’re after jewellery this year then we wholeheartedly recommend a visit to BELOW Porthleven Jewellery Workshop. Small and large amber tree of life The beautiful location – set back from the necklaces harbour in Porthleven – is reason enough to visit, featuring stunning collections that BOTTOM will take your breath away. The shop has Rings from the reticulated range an inviting display of beautiful designs, from bangles and watches, to earrings and bespoke one-off pieces. Run by owners Clair and Paul, their story began when they moved to Cornwall and started selling their Harlequin range of jewellery at a market stall on Porthleven harbour. Eight years down the line and they own a shop on one side of the harbour and a jewellery workshop on the other. “I’ve always had a love for jewellery,” says Clair. “I created our Harlequin range and regularly make unique one-off pieces using sterling silver and semi-precious stones.” The Harlequin range is displayed alongside other collections created by local Cornish artists. ABOVE The stunning eternity ring range
For Paul, opening the shop and workshop was a natural progression. “After a few successful years at the Porthleven Harbour Market, I realised how much I enjoyed the creative side of jewellery. I went back to school and attended a threeyear course at Truro College, gaining a BA Honours degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design. I hope that the love and passion we have for our work shines through.” Paul and Clair’s love for their craft certainly does shine through, and if you too would like to discover the beauty of crafting jewellery, why not book on to a jewellery making course at the workshop for a truly unique gift this year? “We would like to extend a big thank you to all our customers,” says Paul. “We wish them a very merry Christmas and all the best for the year ahead.”

Give a unique gift this Christmas Donate a minimum of £100 and the name of your choice* will appear on the new Cornwall Air Ambulance helicopter, flying over Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly on lifesaving missions when it comes into operation in April 2020.
I’m supporting the Cornwall Air Ambulance New Heli Heroes campaign in memory of my partner John Archer who passed away in November 2016. The paramedic team of CAAT were amazing; although they couldn’t save John, they took care of both him and me, and he finally got to take a trip in a helicopter! Supporting this appeal helps me keep his memory alive, and thank a truly incredible team for their support and care when I needed it the most.
Jackie, partner of air-lifted patient John Archer

y t i n u m m o c e h in t Bluebird Care provides complex care to help individuals enjoy the most fulfilling Cornish lifestyles.
ABOVE Working in care has to be one of the most diverse and rewarding careers
eople living with autism, brain injuries, mental health needs and learning disabilities enjoy and engage in ﬁ ing i e t e e er day as members of our communities. The support they need is often referred to as ‘complex care’, yet it makes all the difference for everyday living, achieving the quality of life we all aspire to. Bluebird Care is at the forefront in meeting the need for complex care in the community, offering a full range of therapeutic and supported living services across Cornwall, creating the warm and friendly environment conducive to independent living. The specialist care services provided by Bluebird Care support people along their own care pathways, with tailored packages of up to 24-hour support in an individual’s home. Carol, who founded Bluebird Care in Cornwall seven years ago, tells us: “We are passionate about making every day enjoyable; we celebrate successes and know how important it is to empower people to live their lives in the way they choose and to have fun doing so. We encourage our staff team to ﬁn ne an inno ati e a o doing things, with creative ideas to challenge and inspire each other to step out and make things happen.” Bluebird Care collaborates with funders, families and stakeholders to go above and beyond, always striving to exceed
expectations. “Through empathy, family values and market-leading training,” continues Carol, “we use all our resources, skills and abilities to ensure everyone achieves their full potential.” Those who work in complex care enjoy a ﬁ ing career n er tan ing t at e er one is unique, listening to each person’s needs and responding to them in a personalised way. “Working in care is the best decision and career move I’ve ever made,” says Bluebird Carer, Emma. “Every day is different, every day is rewarding and every day I smile, seeing my customers smile. Care does come with early mornings, working in all weathers, and doing your fair share of shifts at Christmas, but knowing you are there to help alongside others who are just as passionate about care, makes it all worthwhile.” Bluebird Care welcomes newcomers to join the caring profession and believes that people with experience in other areas often make the best carers, bringing knowledge and understanding for the life of others. The company also provides training to give the no e ge an conﬁ ence nee e to or and excel in care.

llie Brocklebank was airlifted as a baby after he suddenly stopped breathing. Now, he is a happy and healthy teenager who has just started university. His father Tim tells their story: “Ollie was born on 29th July 2001, he unfortunately arrived six weeks early and had double pneumonia. He went straight into intensive care at Treliske for two weeks. He came out and was better, but a few weeks later, he was struggling to breathe. My wife took him up to the Padstow Surgery, where they called the air ambulance immediately. He got to Treliske within 11 minutes, whereas by road it would have been 50 minutes – that eﬁnite a e i ie o e a tra ing o ng a o ear o an e e een fortunate to have 18 years of laughter and fun, instead of 18 years of tears.

Twenty beds IN 2020
Cornwall Hospice Care announces plans for a further increase in the number of beds open at its two Cornish hospices. ABOVE Cornwall Hospice Care Chair, David Renwick
MIDDLE Chief Executive Paul Brinsley RIGHT The need for Cornwall Hospice Care's specialist services continues to grow
s Cornwall Hospice Care prepares to mark 40 years of providing specialist care to terminally ill adults in Cornwall, up to ten beds will soon be open at both Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, and at St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle. It follows a determined period of investment for the charity’s Board of Trustees, who have concentrated on the recruitment of more nursing staff. “Recruitment of staff has been a constant challenge right across the healthcare sector in recent times,” says the charity’s Chair, David Renwick, “but here at Cornwall Hospice Care we have addressed this by investing in our existing team and recr iting more e a e a iﬁe people to help us expand our services for those living with terminal illnesses in the county. I won’t pretend this isn’t a huge challenge, but we’ve been providing a service free of charge for 40 years now and we want to make sure we are here for the next 40 years, at least.” Cornwall Hospice Care’s Chief Executive, Paul Brinsley, elaborates. “As we head into our 40th anniversary year, it’s an accolade to the determination of our staff, volunteers and supporters that we are able to share news of more beds opening. In the last three months we’ve developed tantia ﬁr t e anno nce nine
beds at each hospice, and now we can conﬁrm e inten to o en ten at eac nit “The needs of our patients are always changing and the requirement for our specialist services is growing,” Paul continues. “We have a commitment to support people in the place of their choice and so we must ensure there are beds available at our hospices and support services that are easily accessible in local communities.” Paul explains that the c arit a e re ect t e or t e team do to provide care, including collaborations with a range of healthcare providers and other charities, including Cruse Bereavement Care, to meet the challenges. “We now need to work together with our supporters to ensure than in our 40th year, we celebrate these developments and build on them so terminally ill patients can continue to rely on our services,” ﬁni e a i atc o t or a calendar of events during spring 2020, and thank you in advance for your support. Together, we can make a very special difference.”
