You can read more about the show in our special supplement, including an exhibitor list and seminar schedule, from page 67. There is also much anticipation and excitement in the Cornwall Living office as we look forward to one of Cornwall’s finest festivals that takes place right here in our home village from 26th until 28th April. Now spanning three glorious days of food and music, this year’s Porthleven Food Festival is set to be the best yet with a theme of ‘Love Food’– read more about what’s in store for the weekend from page 120.

Thousands of hours of nursing provided by Cornwall Hospice Care are funded by players of the charity’s lottery. Last year, they contributed £268,731 towards the charity’s front line work in the two hospices and the community. Lottery Manager, Sarah Vincent tells us: “We offer a win-win lottery. For just £1, you get a number in the weekly draw giving you the chance to snap up one of 53 prizes. You also get the feel good factor that comes with knowing your support directly helps fund patient care.” Each Friday, a lucky player joins the lottery smile gallery, celebrating a win of the top

£1,000 prize. Martin Jeffers says: “It’s amazing to win! I’ve had two very close family members diagnosed with cancer.

Four AA Rosettes for

Driftwood Hotel

MEDfacials

introduces novel skin tightening treatment Tixel is a new rejuvenation treatment which can be used to tighten the skin, improve the appearance of scars and help absorption of topical products. Great for the under eye area and dark circles, it uses a heated metal plate to deliver heat energy directly to the skin’s surface. Clinic founder, Dr Joachim Stolte, tells us: “We are the first and onl clinic in Cornwall to use Tixel and the results that we can achieve are very similar to CO2 laser resurfacing, but with a lot less downtime and much more comfort for the patient during treatments.”

Driftwood, the simply stylish boutique hotel overlooking the stunning Gerrans Bay, has maintained its Michelin Star for eight years. This family owned hotel, which was awarded its fourth AA Rosette in 2018, is now a landmark destination in the region. Driftwood’s Executive Chef, Chris Eden, tells us: “What an honour it is to have maintained our Michelin Star for so many years! The credit is due to the entire team and we are particularly pleased to have gained our fourth AA Rosette last year.”

leading down to its own beach. It has 14 rooms, all of which bar one have sea views, plus a wonderfully rustic cabin.

The Tixel device can be used in both ablative and non-ablative mode, depending on your preferences and how much time you can take off to recover. It rejuvenates all Fitzpatrick skin types on the face, neck, periorbital area, eyelids, décolleté and the backs of hands. Patients so far have reported little pain when undergoing the treatment, even when used without topical anaesthesia.

The award winning, family-friendly hotel is set in seven acres with a woodland path

The natural choice…

New play park

set to open in The natural beauty of wood makes it an attractive cladding choice for a wide range of projects – from full self-build schemes through to garages and other outbuildings. Lightweight and easy to install, it provides a uick route to finishing our scheme externally. Cornwall Cladding offer a range of species colours and profiles to choose from to ensure you get a bespoke look that suits your tastes and your property’s setting. Naturally-durable species are available, such as Siberian Kiln Dried Larch, Thermowood D and Canadian Western Red Cedar, which can all be left untreated to weather to a silver gre finish reducing the need for upkeep – or opt for a UV protection oil if you wish to retain the original hue. It’s important to bear in mind that the grade of the timber will impact on the price, however, Cornwall Cladding provides graded timber so you know what you’re getting, with no mixing

of grades within your order. Knotty boards tend to be cheaper, but more contemporary schemes often require a clear un lemished finish We hear from General Manager Kate Marsh who tells us: “When you check out our products online, there’s a cladding profile page indicating what the coverage is (the differences are down to the size of the boards and how they interconnect) and the recommended direction for installation. When it comes to calculating your order, the key measurement is how many square metres (m2) you’ll be covering. As a rule, you should add 10% on top of this figure to account for wastage The Cornwall Cladding price page on the website, will help you do a quick costing of your project.” For more information call 01872 879017 or visit www.cornwallcladding.co.uk

Spring is a great time to sell your house. The evenings are lighter, everyone’s feeling energised as the sun starts to shine and it’s undoubtedly one of the most popular times of year to think about selling. So, how to ‘get to it’ and breathe some life back into your house? My Place in Cornwall offer some simple ideas to kick-start your spring clean. Firstly, have your carpets professionally cleaned. This will bring them up like new, leaving them looking fresh and inviting. Take down curtains and take off sofa and cushion covers too, and give them a good wash and condition with scented fabric conditioner. Finally, dust, dust and dust some more! Get your duster into all those corners you may have forgotten for a while, even if it means rehoming some spiders!

The role of music in the military is a fascinating but overlooked subject. Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is aiming to redress the balance with the opening of its latest exhibition, titled ‘Music, Military and Morale’.

For more information call 0300 123 3577 or visit www.beechgrovehomes. co.uk/developments/hawkers-reach

The exhibition looks at music within the military and its relationship with civilian life, morale, recruitment and Cornish identity. An exhibition highlight will be a Cornish song from the First World War, forgotten about for decades and recently rediscovered in the museum archives! Titled ‘The DCLI Boys’, it’s an emotive and rousing song, with strong Cornish links and a nod to Trelawney. The WW1 song has been given new life, being recently sung and recorded by a group of local singers, and it’s at the very heart of this exhibition. Music, Military and Morale opens at Cornwall’s Regimental Museum on Saturday 13th April with entry included in the usual admission price.

here are few better ways to make the most of a Cornish holiday than spending it under canvas or in a luxury caravan or glamping pod. Cornwall has a stunning array of camping and glamping sites to choose from whether you are looking to bring your own tent, motorhome or caravan or want to take advantage of the wonderful array of pre-pitched yurts, tipis or luxury chalets. Locations are second to none and offer everything from sites right on the coast to those set in wooded wonderlands. Camping is a great choice when it comes to holidaying with family or friends as everyone can enjoy their own individual living space while being able to socialise in open communal spaces – connecting with nature doesn’t get better than this! We begin with Bodrugn Barton, a gorgeous site situated between Gorran Haven and Mevagissey on the Roseland Heritage Coast. Set in two lush paddocks, the six Wigwam® cabins are surrounded by a grove of hazels and a pretty orchard. The glamping site is set on owners Sally and Tim’s working farm, which includes a ock of sheep and a small herd of Dexter cattle. The cabins nestle in this Cornish idyll as if they have always been there, with stunning ocean views and we love the fire pits around which you can gather at the end a day’s exploration. The site is car-free, so ideal for children who can roam the paddocks to their

heart’s content. And fear not, on rainy days guests are welcome to use the heated indoor pool and sauna urn to page to find out more about staying at Bodrugan Barton. www.bodrugan.co.uk Staying on Cornwall’s south coast, a woodland holiday at Forest Holidays’ Deerpark offers a rural retreat, set deep in a woodland valley beside an ancient millpond. The cabins are set back into the trees, some literally perched over the millpond, with woodburners and hot tubs to warm the soul if the nights are chilly. For a truly special stay, the Deerpark’s magical Golden Oak Treehouse is like something from your favourite fairy tale childhood daydream, but with a whole new level of luxury. This wooded hideaway enefits from all of the same facilities and mod cons as the cabins – the Treehouse is one of a kind so early booking is essential! The on-site Forest Hub has a grocery store and an eatery where you can eat in or have a freshly cooked meal delivered to your cabin. www.forestholidays.co.uk/deerpark

We know that for some a camping holiday is a case of less is more’ and ou’ll find this at Pentewan’s sister site, Heligan Caravan and Camping Park. Set amongst what was part of the original Heligan Estate, this site is 'Far from the crowds, closer to nature'. The pitches are naturally sheltered in beautiful woodland and the amenities are just right – enough to make your stay comfortable with a heated amenity block, launderette, campsite shop and play area, but not so many that you can’t enjoy a more traditional camping experience here. You’re only a few hundreds yards from The Lost Gardens of Heligan where you can lose yourself in hundreds of acres of estate and gardens. www.heligancampsite.com nd finall we take a look at a couple of hidden campsites in Cornwall that truly have the wow-factor when it comes to getting away from it all ou’ll find the first hidden gem on the Lizard peninsula, at Teneriffe Farm near Mullion, and describing it as picturesque doesn’t even come close. You’re just a tenminute walk from the South West Coast Path, and the camping fields have gorgeous sea views. Pitches are well-kept and well-spaced and you get a real feel of getting back to nature as soon as you arrive. For those who prefer a sturdier camping experience to a night under canvas, there are also four camping pods available to hire. All you need do is pitch-up and relax. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holidays

Pitch up in an island paradise on St Martin's, Isles of Scilly

The campsite on St. Martin’s on the Isles of Scilly has been welcoming campers since the mid sixties. Once you visit, it’s hard to stay away and so many campers return year after ear for their cill fi ’ ou’ve not experienced camping until you’ve done it the 'Scilly’ way – all your kit has to be taken over with you either by boat or plane on the Scillonian or Skybus (www.islesofscillytravel.co.uk), which really focuses the mind when it comes to what’s essential. It’s then taken to St Martin’s by an off-island launch and everyone works together to unload the boat when it arrives at St Martin’s quay before the short trip to paradise. The 50 pitches are sheltered by pittosporum hedges, offering shade from the sun and shelter from the wind. ou’ll find award winning washroom facilities here, as well as a launderette, free Wi-Fi and free charging point. You can pre-order hot morning croissants and evening baked potatoes and there is a small honesty shop for most camping needs; gas, pegs, charcoal, barbeques, freshly picked vegetables, milk and free range eggs, Campsite Honey and home made Tangy Marmalade. The nearby Seven tones nn which has recentl enefited from the addition of a new function area (read more from page 38) welcomes campers for drinks, lunch and dinner.

riginally a manor house, Kernick Park later became a farm and then converted into an exclusive set of individual homes in recent times. The development is approached via a private lane, which opens into a mature communal wooded lawn where the properties are located. Originally, The Bell House formed part of the main house and today retains many of its stunning period features, including a bell tower on the roof! Bell Cottage was constructed more recently as part of the ‘Walled Garden’ development, and has been utilised as a successful holiday let. It could, however, be incorporated into the main house or be used as an annexe. The accommodation in the main house comprises two bedrooms, however there is the potential to have four or even five should you decide to combine the main house and Bell Cottage. There’s also a fully fitted kitchen and a dining room with tremendous character and charm, complete with its own granite, inglenook style fireplace and an additional alcove with a wine rack. Into the living room and you’ll notice straight awa the gorgeous agstone oors the feature granite fireplace and e posed stone walls which, between them, make

it easy to see yourself getting cosy here, especially during the winter months. A viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the sheer space and character on offer here, especially considering this wonderful property is available with the enefit of no onward chain

With a history spanning some 30 years, Christies’ industry experience is leading the way when it comes to furnishing homes in the West Country.

T

hey say an Englishman’s home is his castle and with that in mind, it is so important to furnish it to the highest of standards, but with a myriad of styles available it can sometimes be hard to know where to start. We caught up with owner of Christie's Furniture, Pete Blell, to find out more a out the eautiful furniture and bed store that is Christie's Furniture and the Christie's Bed Shop in Penryn. “Our story begins all the way back in 1985, when the evon ed Centre in eter first set down roots,” Pete tells us. “Now, over 30 years later, it’s the largest, longest established independent bed centre in Devon. “We took that pedigree, knowledge and industry experience, and in 2010 we opened the Christie's Furniture store in Penryn, Cornwall. Having been closed for two years at that point, it was in desperate need of refurbishment. We relish a challenge and practically re-built the place – transforming it into the comprehensive furniture hub that it is today,” explains Peter. “We’re proud of the hard work we put in back then and even more proud of the successful years we’ve had since." Not a company to rest on its laurels, Christie's urniture installed a new first oor in which, as well as their stylish sofas, gorgeous living and dining room furniture and stunning accessories, meant they were able to boast one of the largest bed centres in the south

Similarly, light colours may not be suitable for a family home.

Budget should also be a consideration. If you’re buying for the long term, then Pete advises to invest in a quality piece, even it costs that little bit more, as its longevity will outweigh the initial outlay. However, if it’s a piece of furniture that’s providing a stop-gap, then Christie's can also offer something that will fit the ill ut won’t reak the ank With so many different homes across Cornwall, from cottages, townhouses and holiday homes to modern new builds, Christie's have something to suit.

A

READ

DISCOVER MORE Be sure to visit the brand new Sweet Dreamzzz showroom when it opens from April 1st, when Denise and her team will be on hand to offer expert advice and excellent customer service. And don't forget, Sweet Dreamzzz won't be beaten on price!

EXPERIENCE

DISCOVER MORE If you’re looking to furnish student accommodation then Sweet Dreamzzz offer a popular range of bedroom packages specifically tailored to student needs. Sweet Dreamzzz also provide quality affordable beds and mattresses to holiday home companies and owners as holidaymakers look forward to a good night's sleep.

ccording to the Sleep Council you should change your mattress every seven years or when you start waking up with stiffness or aches and pains. Historically, the most popular type of mattress was pocket sprung. However, with a new generation of vacuum-packed mattresses coming to the market, often made of foam or latex, as well as hybrids between the two, the choice can be overwhelming. Yes, you can purchase a mattress on the internet, but when you spend an average of seven to eight hours a night on it, why would you not try before you buy? To help us make a choice we spoke to Denise and Mike, owners of Sweet Dreamzzz in Penryn. Having provided beds and mattresses to discerning customers across the county for more than ten years, they are best placed to advise on what to look for. Having recently undergone a refurbishment their store on Commercial Road has a carefully selected range of beds and mattresses. The new showroom enables them to offer their customers an excellent choice without it being overwhelming and their years of experience mean that they know exactly which beds and mattresses are best suited to your needs. So, a visit to Sweet Dreamzzz takes all of the angst out of purchasing as whichever bed or mattress you choose from their range, and you can rest assured that your purchase will be right for you, whatever your budget.

For the launch of the new showroom Sweet Dreamzzz is proud to introduce the eco-friendly 'Ultimate Natural Collection' of divan beds and mattresses from Smeaton Brothers, who have been making beds in the UK since 1893 and are pro-active in reducing environmental effects to our planet. attresses are filled using natural fi res such as wool, silk and cashmere, sourced where possible near the Smeaton Brothers' Yorkshire factory to reduce transport emissions. The factory also boasts a roof full of solar panels and the company maintains 24 acres of local, natural woodland to offset their carbon footprint. And when a Smeaton Brothers mattress needs replacing it is fully recyclable - so not only do you get quality and comfort, you know you are helping reduce landfill and ultimatel save our planet whilst you sleep, naturally. Look out for Sweet Dreamzzz' opening offer on the Ultimate Natural Collection of superb ecofriendly beds.

TIMELESS APPEAL With a hard-earned reputation for quality Cornish craftsmanship, Philip Whear Windows and Conservatories talks us through the benefits of stable doors.

C

atching up with company Director and Designer, Philip Whear himself, we learn that stable doors were originally designed to keep animals out of farmhouses, or to keep children inside while allowing light and air to ow through into what would have once been dark and often smoky cottages. They essentially combined a door with a fairly large window! The open top half would allow a breeze, but would stop the wind from blowing dirt into the house. “This type of door was common in the Netherlands in the 17th century,” Philip explains, “and appears in some Dutch paintings from the period. They were also commonly found in the Dutch culturally in uenced areas of ew ork and ew Jersey before the American Revolution. Fast forward to the present day and this superb Cornish business still creates this iconic style of door, using modern, thermall efficient and top ualit ritish uPVC or hardwood to construct them, thus guaranteeing strength and durability. “We fully reinforce all our uPVC frames with aluminium too, which will never rust, unlike galvanised steel. This is of particular importance in Cornwall with its coastal climate.” ll the fi ings locks and door furniture are of stainless steel or non-ferrous metals, and where glazed, Philip tells us that the doors his team creates are made to receive high-

performance 28mm double glazed sealed units. All are manufactured to high British standards, with toughened glass that carries the prestigious BS ‘kitemark’. These stunning doors are available in a range of colours too. As Philip continues: “We can match virtually any colour for you!” Philip and the team work principally in kiln-dried mahogany hardwood from West Africa for their doors, although other timbers are available to order. They manufacture from renewable and sustainable timber, which is Forestry tewardship Council certified he even create stable doors with a wood grain effect, meaning you can have the look of real timber, without the maintenance and care required of real wood! So if you’ve been looking to give your home a new lease of life with a stunning hardwood door that’s designed to stand up to the test of Cornwall’s trying weather conditions for years to come, be sure to pop into the Philip Whear showroom and check out the impressive selection for yourself.

It isn’t just those moving to Cornwall that can enefit from ritannia anes’ unrivalled service though With the recent re launch of the company’s website, Britannia Lanes, which has always had a price guide for the UK, now offers a price guide for those moving to and from Europe, as well as an international

price guide for people moving to Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and South Africa. This makes such a daunting move just that little bit easier, especially knowing you can still rely on the Britannia team’s safe hands half way around the world! Businesses, too, are well served by Britannia anes ot onl can office moves e seamlessl made with as little disruption to their da to day runnings, this fantastic Cornish business now offers Confidential hredding ags which can be purchased online.

Our approach is centred on listening to our clients’ needs and then accommodating them as best as possible. This often includes informing them on the alternative solutions that they may not have thought of – giving them options, to either save money or reduce the hassle for them.” But where the removals service gets really smart is in Mark and the team's video surveys. Using specially developed software, the client gives a tour of their house via their smartphone or tablet. Mark tells us: “We get a very clear understanding of their needs and concerns aving some face to face interaction, albeit through technology, helps provide a personal touch – we’re not just an anonymous company!” Using the survey, Mark uses his experience to work out the number of boxes and overall

Video surveys make our estimates much more accurate, and also mean our crews are far better informed on what to expect, and the kind of packaging they’ll need.” So, if you’re thinking of making a move or have commercial needs that Britannia Lanes can help with, why not head to the new website and go from there?

MEET THE TEAM

Meet the Good Life Joinery team at the Cornwall Home and Lifestyle Show.

ood Life Joinery, since moving to a new workshop in 2016, has gone from strength to strength. Catching up with the founder of this successful oak framing and oiner firm Stuart Bowman-Haris at his busy workshop just outside Camelford, we can see a clear mix of modern and traditional styles being crafted. From sleek kitchens with stainless steel worktops, to a very large oak staircase, we ask Stuart what inspires the team in their creations. He tells us: “I believe the main ingredient in good design is simplicity. The first thing ask efore designing an item whether it’s a large oak-framed garden room or a piece of furniture, is how the customer wants to use it. “I have a small but very experienced workforce and we all agree with the principle that form follows function. Also, we’re absolutely passionate about what we’re doing – we love wood and making things out of it! Whatever it is that a craftsperson makes, if they love what they’re doing and believe in it, their love and belief shines through the final product omething that’s made on a robotic production line just doesn’t have the same feel.”

The team are obviously doing something right as, in 2017 they picked up a fantastic award from the Local Authority Building Control for ‘Best Change of Use for an Existing Building’. This was given for Good Life’s work on Hinterland House, a stunning holiday home just 11 miles from Bude. Stuart tells us: “We were, of course, delighted and totally surprised by the win. It’s always a great feeling to get praise for a good piece of work. We were nominated for this award, so it came completely out of the blue. To be shortlisted was amazing, and to actually win was just fantastic!” The professional team also designs and makes kitchens, staircases and furniture, so if your home could do with an update but you’re not sure where to turn; with an impressive past few years and a promising year ahead, perhaps Good Life Joinery can be of assistance?

Make your outside space the envy of your neighbours with help from the team at Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems.

H

omeowners more and more are seeking to turn their homes into sanctuaries away from the frantic toing and froing of the modern world and here in Cornwall, many are fortunate enough to be situated in areas where, with just a little consideration, they can capitalise on their beautiful location by improving their outdoor space. Those of us lucky enough to enjoy rolling countryside views or coastal vistas often spend as much time outside as we do in, particularly during the warmer months, yet for some reason we focus all our energy on realising our dream interior, only paying passing thought to how we might fully realise our homes’ outside potential. This is where Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems come in. Presenting bespoke and made-to-measure stainless steel handrails, glass balustrades, structural glass, Juliet balconies and safety rails, Kestrel offers homes across Cornwall an array of practical solutions, helping to bring your property’s interior ‘wow’ factor outside. Owners Bruce and Katie, since 2013, have taken the business from a supplyonly company to one that offers a fullytailored service, using local suppliers and manufacturing in-house and in collaboration with other traders. And, while their service usually coincides with other tradesmen, adding the finishing touches to a larger project, there are cases where the team are

able to utilise their wider skillsets to offer a much broader service. Take the pictured project, for example. Initially, the team was asked to replace a wooden handrail and in fill with a stainless post handrail and glass in fill however their client was concerned about a few of the decking boards. Bruce explains: “So we agreed to also replace these during the installation. However, once we started removing the old system it became quite apparent that the deck would require more attention. Coming from a carpentry background, James and I were, in this instance, able to undertake the larger project of installing a new oak deck frame and full decking.” Impressive! As you can see, the new handrails and glass in fills a solutel make the most of this property’s outside space. They’re testament to the fact that your home’s ‘wow’ factor needn’t stop at the door, showing just how easy it can be to make your home’s exterior a genuine pleasure to spend time in.

EXPERTS

As Cornwall begins to thaw with the onset of spring, now’s the time to meet the experts at Bodmin Nursery and inject some life into your garden!

T

he reasons to visit Bodmin Nursery are many and varied, not least the breathtaking ranges, the freshness of the plants, even just to savour the moment with a coffee on the Café Terrace! However, it is the team who are the heart of the nursery. Each member loves their plants and, while each has their own specialist area of responsi ilit on the e tensive five acre nursery, their knowledge and passion extends to all areas. General Manager, Darrin Sandercock, has been at Bodmin Nursery for 17 years and, alongside owners Mark and Linda Lawlor, has helped oversee much of the nursery’s development. During this time, it has become one of the foremost plant destinations in the south west arrin works with his strong nursery team to ensure the success of its growing programme. Even when he’s not at work he loves growing winter owering shrubs, for their vibrancy and scent, as well as summer perennials, for their vast combinations of colour and form. In her spare time, Claire Wood, who heads up Shrubs, Climbers and Roses at the nursery, loves to grow unusual woodland perennials and shrubs, with a particular fondness for hellebores, ferns and arisaemas. Claire also heads up the nursery’s ‘Garden Visit’ service, whereby a visit is made to your garden, ideas jointly formulated and recommendations made as to suitable planting options. Assistance is also given when you next visit the nursery to choose the plants in question. Jon Stark is Head of Perennials and Alpines, the former running to thousands of varieties, including one which erupts into a stunning show over the summer period. Jon himself has a passion for salvias and also roses, with at least 50 of the latter in his own garden! He recommends plants for places and works with many customers in the challenges of coastal gardening. When you visit, be sure to ask him a out his favourite coastal owering plants – he’ll be delighted to help you! Hedging for coastal situations is also one area in which the nursery has made a name for itself over the years, be it for wind breaks, screening or for ornamental purposes.

This April, on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th, Bodmin Nursery is set to host its Big Spring Saver Weekend – a chance to be inspired for spring ‘proper’, save 10% on any plants bought, and to meet the team who, between them, make the nursery such a special place to visit.

GORGEOUS GARDENS We discover the driving force behind Trevena Cross Nurseries and get some tips on making the most of our gardens by the coast.

S

tarting out in with ust a field of cabbages, the team at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage has since upheld a commitment to growing from the land. Such was their passion when the first started out that it wasn’t long before their work had spilled over into other areas of growing, all nurtured by their love and appreciation for plants and horticulture. Backed by a great well of knowledge and expertise for growing a wide range of plants, including coastal plants and rare, unusual and exotic plants, Trevena Cross opens up a world of possibilities for visitors. Run by the Jeffery family, Trevena Cross has a 32-acre nursery and three-acre garden centre, all run by a team that’s happy to impart their knowledge and help make your garden the envy of your neigh ours Owner, Graham Jeffery, is an expert when it comes to making the most of your coastal garden. He tells us: “With the luxury of a milder climate, we have the option to grow more exotic plants like Chamaerops and Trachycarpus palms, however there is the challenge of poor, sandy soils and salt laden winds (particularly right by the coast). With this in mind, windbreaks are an important consideration in a coastal garden. Hedging plants like Elaeagnus ebbingei, Olearia traversii, or Griselinia littoralis are hardy, salt resistant choices.”

With the right windbreak, Graham explains, the growth of other plants in the garden will be supported, even helping to create microclimates, in which you’ll be able to grow plants like succulents. He also recommends adding different plants for different purposes. “Adding Phormiums, grasses and foliage plants into your planting scheme will add interest and texture, and seasonal bedding and patio plants will add vibrant colour, too.” There’s a huge choice of trees and shrubs too fitting perfectl with coastal gardens and many varieties from the southern hemisphere, including New Zealand Astelias, Coprosma, Hebes and Pseudopanax will grow well in Cornwall. There’s plenty you can do to keep your coastal garden in tip-top condition, just pop into the nurser and find out for ourself While you’re there, you’ll be amazed at the diversity of plants available, and you’re sure to find something to add interest to your garden in the shop, before stopping for lunch in the delightfully delicious arden itchen Caf ou can also find a complete, free guide to coastal gardening, so be sure to pop in and grab a copy.

Alleviate the PRESSURE

Are you in the business of holiday letting? If so, be sure to shop local, even for your booking and management tools! Introducing Anytime Booking.

T

he ‘staycation’ is going nowhere. Our beautiful county continues to welcome increasing numbers of visitors each year, which is good news for the tourism industry, for holiday home owners, and for the local economy. It’s not just the domestic annual holiday that’s on the up. Short breaks are an increasing trend due to familiarity and ease of access, making the UK an attractive destination for people looking for a spontaneous weekend trip. Luckily for us in the Duchy, Cornwall usually tops the polls as the number one destination. With a continuing surge in popularity for holidays on home soil, many business owners are struggling with the increase in demand and all the admin that goes with running a holiday business. Always learning from experience and adapting to an ever-changing marketplace, Anytime Booking offers the booking management tools you need to let out the steam from under your collar. “Whether you run a cottage agency, campsite, glamping site or motorhome hire business, we can help,” says Vanessa Glossop, Head of Communications at Anytime. “Operators are keen to e as e i le as possi le within the framework of their booking system. They need to keep up with trends respond to uctuations in the market, keep control of their tariff, length of stays, changeover days, discounts and so on. Our system enables this freedom.” Imagine going into the busy season knowing you’re free to concentrate on your guests’

experience rather than day-to-day admin. Adopting Anytime’s cloud-based technology can help you do just that – by delivering bookings through your website and other sales channels, processing payments, and taking care of your admin through automated correspondence with your guests. Hannah Colin, Customer Service Manager of luxury cottage agency, Forever Cornwall, says: “The booking environment in the holiday lettings sector is increasingly complex and it’s very helpful to work with an independent local partner who is passionate about delivering technical solutions that help us to keep ahead of the competition.” Established in 2011, Anytime Booking now serves over 260 businesses throughout the UK, with 25,000 bookable spaces between them. They have processed £150 million in bookings since launch and send out over 100,000 booking related emails a month during high season, showing just how much admin they alleviate! “Increasing your online visibility and focusing on the guest booking experience will really drive and maximise your occupancy,” adds Wendy Radford, Anytime’s Managing Director. “If you’re still wondering about taking that leap, just go for it, you won’t look back.”

Hot tubs have the biggest single impact, helping to achieve a 14% increase in weekly rental

"

ith the holiday letting market in Cornwall thriving, thanks to a growing number of property owners taking advantage of the high rental yields, a strong tourism industry and favourable tax conditions, there has never been a better time to be letting a holiday home. With 2017/18 setting a record for inbound tourism to the UK, in addition to the 47 million Brits taking domestic holidays, the overall market potential for holiday letting is stronger than ever. Combine this with the increasing popularity of short breaks (which have grown by 28% in the last 12 months alone) and holiday let owners across Cornwall are more likely to secure bookings all year round. Of course, location is crucial, but such locations are not hard to find What’s more owners can enhance their return with features that make their property really stand out, attracting more bookings and ultimately delivering more income. Hot tubs have the biggest single impact, helping to achieve a 14% increase in weekly rental and attracting, on average, an extra 41 days booked per year. Other factors that can have a positive impact include ensuring your property is dog friendly, installing a wood burner and offering en-suite bathrooms throughout.

In addition, if you meet the criteria for being ABOVE é a urnished olida et the ta office Location is key for allows additional ta enefits too some of any holiday let which are over and above those afforded to long term residential landlords.

Finally, for owners who need assistance in realising the potential of their investment, selecting the right letting agent is important. For over 30 years, the Travel Chapter has learnt and developed many effective ways to help with the success of holiday lets. With an appreciation of the local market and a local Stay in Cornwall brand, backed up with the national reach of holidaycottages.co.uk, holiday bookings are rarely far away.

A PROPER CORNISH BREAK With stylish and comfortable accommodation and glamping in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bodrugan Barton now offers yoga retreats too! ABOVE é Make the most of your trip and get out on the water INSETS ì Make a splash in the indoor pool, before an al fresco lunch overlooking the sea

L

ast year, we caught up with owner of Bodrugan, Sally, who explained how they’d decided to meet the increasing demand for high-standard glamping accommodation. The result, as we learned, was stunning, with the site’s beautiful Wigwams already proving a big hit. These wonderfully warm camping cabins sit beautifully in the countryside, the wider site is home to Sally and husband Tim’s sheep and Dexter cattle, making this a real escape to the country! But it’s not just the Wigwams that have garnered such a fantastic reputation for Bodrugan. The site is also home to some stunning self-catering cottages, sleeping up to eight. These are perfect if you’re looking for that ‘home from home’ escape to Cornwall, and being located so close to the Roseland Heritage Coast, they make the perfect base from which to explore everything that this beautiful pocket of Cornwall has to offer. And, with sumptuous bedrooms, modern living spaces and well-equipped kitchens, you can work up the heartiest of sea-air appetites before heading back to base and cooking up a storm using the freshest local produce. For several years Bodrugan has liaised with many art and textile tutors who bring groups of enthusiastic learners to use the accommodation and stretch their creative imagination in the studio space. This year they are thrilled that they can now offer a new studio with under oor heating and a treatment room to offer other disciplines such as yoga, well-being, writing and other activities. For those days where you simply want to relax, Bodrugan have books and games to

orrow films to watch or wander down through the farm to a secluded cove and follow the coastal path where you can really be at ease and settle into the pace of life by the sea. Raising their own lamb and supplying to Waitrose, there’s a keen focus on farming at Bodrugan. Sally explains: “The best thing is talking to people and communicating to them about food provenance, farming and how the countryside works. There’s so much interest – our guests love the idea of a farm and like to know more about the way we operate. A big bonus of having people on your land is that you get to learn what happens beyond the Tamar, and it’s vital to keep up with changing viewpoints and to understand what people want from a holiday. “At Bodrugan, they get great views, walking, beaches, comfortable, en-suite glamping ca ins with firepits outdoor furniture and a car-free site small enough for children to be left to explore. If it rains, they can use our heated indoor pool and sauna, and when tired children go to sleep, parents can enjoy a drink on the deck as they watch the ocean.” That certainly sounds like bliss to us!

Trevince is also one of the few gardens in Cornwall to join the International Conifer Conservation Programme that provides a living seed bank of conifers that may be threatened or vulnerable in the wild.

HURRICANE Discover the world’s most powerful storms this year at ShelterBox Visitor Centre.

é ì ABOVE

ShelterBox provides emergency shelter to survivors of natural disasters around the world

C

fe v e r

ornwall has some wild winter storms, but they’re a breeze compared to a Category Five hurricane f ou want to find out what it’s like to experience one of these huge storms then make sure to check out ShelterBox Visitor Centre’s new exhibition, ‘Hurricanes, Cyclones and Typhoons’. The exhibition opens in Truro on Saturday 8th April, just in time for the Easter holidays. During the exhibition you will discover how the Cornish charity prepares for hurricane season, how they track typhoons around the world and what it takes to get emergency shelter to people in remote communities that have been devastated by cyclones. Don’t miss the Weather Lab, which explains the science behind the storms and has hands-on, familyfriendly weather experiments. You’ll also get a chance to try packing a ShelterBox with the items people might need if their home has been hit with a hurricane. “ShelterBox has responded over 60 times to hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons,” explains Andy Bramwell, Visitor Centre Manager. “They are the disaster we could most imagine hitting Cornwall, so we hope the new exhibition gives visitors a real sense of empathy and shows how ShleterBox helps people in need get back on their feet.” ShelterBox was founded in 2000 and has helped over one million people across 97 different countries. It sends emergency shelter and essential household items to people made homeless by natural disaster or con ict helter o isitor Centre is

open Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm and admission is free, allowing you to discover the amazing work that is carried out and see the damage caused by these vast weather systems. Coming from a part of the world that is lucky enough not to be in the firing line it’s an e tremel e e opening experience. The many islands of the Philippines are not so lucky and sit in a zone known as ‘Typhoon Alley,’ which is hit every year by tropical storms and typhoons, the most recent being Typhoon Mangkhut in October 2018. ShelterBox has responded more than 25 times to disasters in the Philippines, more than any other country. In January 2019, ShelterBox Operations Philippines was launched giving the charity a permanent presence on the island of Cebu, allowing it to store aid in the country and respond more quickly and effectively in the future.

DID YOU KNOW? When a storm system reaches sustained wind speeds of 74mph it becomes a Category One hurricane – but only if it’s in the Atlantic ocean, otherwise it would be known as a typhoon or cyclone. What's more, the word hurricane may have originated from either Hurakan,the ancient Mayan god of wind, storm and fire, or Huracan, the god of evil, in the Caribbean language of Taino.

INSIDE THE

m o r t s l e ma We learn more about Mike Lacey’s commitment to capturing the most awe-inspiring images of Cornwall’s surf.

ABOVE é Mike gets up close and personal with Cornwall's waves, with staggering results INSET ì Lisa and the children

W

ould you like to see Cornwall’s coastline from a different angle? Six years ago this April, Mike Lacey opened Waves Gallery in Porthleven. Entering the unknown, Mike and his wife Lisa steam rolled ahead to forge a new career in the art world. With the perfect place coming available in just the right location, it seemed to them that fate had well and truly taken over. Having no idea as to the reception Mike’s work would receive, they went in open minded and with a bold vision of making it a success. Now, six years later, having opened a new gallery in Falmouth, this dream has very much become a reality! Making the business work has taken all of their commitment, and has of course included a great deal of support from family, friends and customers. Most of all, however, it’s Mike’s willingness to be out in all kinds of weather and surf, just to deliver his next magical shot, that leaves us all incredibly thankful that we don’t have to! Mike’s ability to withstand the winter temperatures as he oats around in Cornwall’s freezing winter waters is mind boggling, but his passion for Cornwall and nature drives him to continue exploring

the coast, pushing the boundaries of photography to the limits. The shots Mike achieves are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and are something truly worth seeing for yourself! For this reason, as Cornwall thaws with the arrival of spring, we highly recommend taking a trip to Porthleven or Falmouth and heading into one of Mike’s mind-blowing galleries. Trust us, you certainly won’t be left feeling disappointed by these Cornish water wonders!

DISCOVER MORE With over 180,000 happy customers visiting every year a trip to Harbour Lights should be on everyone’s menu!

ou’ll find ar our ights perched above the historic Custom House Quay in Falmouth. Recently shortlisted in the Top Ten for the coveted ‘Best Fish & Chip Shops in the UK 2019’ award, which adds to an already great haul of accolades, we were intrigued as to what makes an award-winning chippie. A fish and chip shop is udged on having ak moist fish light crisp atter and moreish chips and it’s clear that Harbour Lights hits the jackpot with all three. heir fish is a com ination of responsi l sourced Cod addock and local fish delivered dail from local fish merchant Stevens & Sons. Potatoes are a passion for Harbour Lights, with their Cornish spuds arriving from farms within just a 20-mile radius. Double-cooked to perfection, these are as good on their own as they are when served with a succulent piece of fish coated in a specially formulated batter. Add to that a side of delicious homemade mushy peas and you’ll see why Harbour Lights is leading the wa when it comes to fish and chips However, it’s not just the food that makes a chippie award winning. The team at Harbour Lights is fanatical about every portion being as good as the last, and they do this with passion and fun. Their motto ‘Celebrating Fish and Chips’ is evident the moment you walk through the door it’s almost as if fish

and chips is in their DNA. Despite a foodie revolution across the fish and chips has never gone out of fashion and this great British fare is hard to beat when you fancy some comfort food. Harbour Lights have stayed true to the nation’s favourite using fresh, quality ingredients, cooked simply but well. Whether you are a traditionalist and don’t like to stray from cod or haddock, or are more adventurous and want to sample some of the Cornish local fish fresh from Newlyn, battered or grilled, the choice is yours. To ensure everyone can enjoy their awardwinning fish and chips the ar our ights team cooks with vegetable oil, offers gluten free options and now even vegan fish and chips! Their homemade mushy peas and curry sauce are perfect for chip dipping too!

Enjoy spring dining

at the Lemon Arms

Spring is well and truly here and that means getting outdoors as much as possible to watch the owers loom and soak up the gentle spring sun. We recommend a leisurely stroll alongside Mylor creek, spotting the wildlife and watching boats bobbing on the water, or if the tide’s out, look out for the different bird species such as herons which frequent the area. Then top it off with a pint in the Lemon Arms pub, which has a brilliant beer garden and maybe even indulge in a bite to eat too, after all you have just worked up an appetite! With classic pub food made so well it’s practically gourmet, enjoy a prawn cocktail or a mature Cornish cheddar and homemade chutney sandwich in the warm April sun.

FAR-FLUNG

r u o v a l f

We catch up with the owners of Kahuna in Newquay, offering an authentic flavour of Southeast Asia via a delicious pan-Asian menu.

é ì ABOVE

'The best pan-Asian food you'll get in Cornwall', according to Nathan Outlaw!

I

f you have wanderlust and a taste for authentic pan-Asian food, Kahuna in Newquay will immediately make you feel at home. Just a small step off of the Cornish high street and you could just as easily be in Bali or Thailand, eating authentic food and pairing your dish with an ice-cold Bintang or Singha beer! Famed chef, Nathan Outlaw, had this to say about Kahuna: “This is the best pan-Asian food you’ll get in Cornwall. Because of the travelling the owners have done, they know how to do it properly.” High praise indeed! Inside, the jungle leaf print on the walls may be bang on trend, however owners Kelly and Ryan Mather have been living and sharing the tropical travel vibe for years. Now catering for a generation of locals who, like them, have grown up travelling, surfing and dining on street food around sia ahuna’s avours and am iance instantly transport guests back to hitting their favourite winter breaks in Bali, or backpacking around Thailand. Ryan has worked as a chef for 20 years, expanding his skills and style abroad including stints in Greece, France and Australia. Working at the popular Steyne Café on Manyly Beach, Sydney, he developed a passion for the fresh, clean style of eating that stamped a distinctive frame on seaside dining. Fresh seafood and dishes borrowed

from pan-Asian neighbours were served happily alongside popular beachside favourites. Ryan says: "At the time when I was there, Australia were pioneering the pan global cooking scene. They loved to really cele rate fresh avours and that colourful fresh style, which has become one of our signatures at Kahuna.” Many ingredients that ensure Ryan’s dishes’ authenticity are not readily available in Cornwall, so he imports them. They are then cooked with care and expertise, ensuring guests have an impressive epicurean experience. In true fusion style, they marry these imported ingredients with fresh, local produce (where possible), and dishes such as an’s eef rending have proved firm favourites. Why not head to the website and try out Ryan’s recipe for yourself? Alternatively, get 10% off your meal in the restaurant by producing this article. Even if it’s fully booked, you can make the most of Kahuna’s takeaway service – perfect for those rida film nights

DON’T SUFFER IN SILENCE Consultant Gynaecologist at Duchy Hospital, Farah Lone discusses the often-taboo subject of female urinary incontinence to give a better understanding and raise awareness of the treatments available.

U é ABOVE Farah Lone, Consultant Gynecologist at Duchy Hospital

DID YOU KNOW? Stress incontinence affects one in five women over 40.

DISCOVER MORE Duchy Hospital has a clinical specialist physiotherapist, who offers pelvic floor assessments to enable an effective treatment plan to be prescribed along with relevant lifestyle advice. Call 01872 226105.

rinary incontinence isn’t often discussed publicly, however there are between three and six million sufferers in the UK. Indeed, it isn’t at all uncommon in women. There are a number of myths associated with it, including that it’s due to old age and that pads are the only solution. Reassuringly, Farah Lone says that this is not absolutely correct. “It can be caused by many things including infections, medications, weak bladder muscles, menopause, complications from surgery, or conditions such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and problems after having a stroke.” The main types of urinary incontinence are stress incontinence, which is the leaking of urine during exercise or when coughing laughing or snee ing urge incontinence, a sudden urge to pass urine; functional incontinence, which means not being able to get to the toilet in time due to ph sical reasons over ow incontinence where urine leaks if the bladder hasn’t been completely emptied; mixed incontinence – a combination of stress and urge incontinence. A doctor will diagnose urinary incontinence based on symptoms and medical history and will usually carry out an examination. Tests may be arranged, including urine tests for any infections, blood tests, ultrasound of the bladder, cystoscopy examination of the urethra, and ladder pressure and ow measurement There are a number of ways to treat the problem, from non-surgical options that

include weight loss and avoiding certain foods, drinks and exercises, to taking medication, specialist physiotherapy and, lastly, surgery. Farah Lone explains: “Being overweight can make some types of incontinence more likely, so weight loss may help. Some food and drink can also increase the chances, including caffeine alcohol and fi drinks elvic oor e ercises can help strengthen the muscles around the bladder, while bladder training can help you learn to have longer gaps between visits to the toilet.” There are also medicines which can be offered for an overactive bladder or mixed incontinence. These can have some side effects, and are usually prescribed by a GP. Surgery, Farah explains, is offered to women with stress incontinence. These include urethral bulking; mid-urethral sling procedures, and other suspension procedures to the bladder. The details can be discussed by the specialist urogynaecologist. “The main thing is not to suffer in silence. There are a number of options if you suffer from incontinence and there’s no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed! Speak to your GP and ask to be referred to a specialist, either on the NHS or privately. At Duchy Hospital we offer a private gynaecology service with appointment times convenient to you, consultantdelivered care and en-suite rooms.”

LIFE CHANGING DENTISTRY In dentistry, reputation is everything. At Pure Dental Health in Truro we believe client care and service matters just as much as the quality of the dentistry. Here’s what a few of our patients said about their experience. Watch their full video interviews on our website or take a look at our 5-star Google and Facebook reviews.

“You’re not frightened to go to the dentist for one thing. And secondly you get what you pay for.” - MARGARET

“They look so real and everybody mentions the confidence they have given me... I’m free again.” - LYNN

“If I’d have had a dentist like Mark for most of my life, I probably would have much better teeth than I now have.” - LYNETTE

“I just smile without realising, not thinking. The teeth feel so natural. Just give it a try and find out. It’s something that can change your life.” - JEREMY

“Immediately I got the impression that Mark certainly knew what he was talking about. I never had dentistry explained to me so vividly and so well.” - PETE

“It took a lot for me to go to the first consultation, but I met Mark and the team and they were just so kind, so calming and so welcoming.” - SARAH

We cater for every aspect of dentistry. From the essentials like your routine examination and hygiene treatments, to more complex treatments such as straightening teeth or replacing missing teeth with implants. Our highly qualified team are able to provide services that will give you the reassurance to smile and eat without worry.

Companionship AT HOME

Stay active and healthy in the community you know and love with a live-in companion from Bluebird Care.

K

eeping active, healthy living, enjoying company and good food all contribute to a healthy lifestyle that makes the most of a long and happy retirement in Cornwall ut this can e difficult to do on your own. Family and friends can’t always be there, but they want to keep an eye on you and make sure you’re okay. So, how can you save them time and worry, and still remain active and busy, without exhausting kindness and goodwill of neighbours and friends? This question often nags at the back people’s minds, not just for now, but when looking ahead and preparing for the future. Live in companions are a wonderful new lifestyle choice for many who want to maintain independence and enjoy their time at home right through retirement, to stay busy and involved. After all, an active life keeps the body healthy, mind stimulated and reduces the onset of dementia, not to mention the pleasure of company, and someone to chat to, enjoy getting out and about with, and to ponder the ever-changing world. They can also be a great help short term, for enablement following an operation or bout of ill health, since companionship care is a great tonic and motivator to get you moving again and oil the wheels of recovery. A spare room at home can now become a huge opportunity for a new lease of life, to shake off loneliness and manage risks of a fall. A live-in companion can remind you to take medication, prepare regular meals and drinks, assist with household chores, and be a cheerful face to encourage you to get out and reduce isolation. Live-in companionship is a revolutionary new way of living that can enormously enhance enjoyment of life, easing the burden and worries of living alone, yet enabling you to remain settled in your own home. Few companies offer this service but, based locally in Cornwall, Bluebird Care is one of the few that does. Bluebird Care can set it up and keep a careful eye on how it’s going, to ensure the relationship with your companion stays just right and is working best for you.

é ABOVE Live-in companions help you make the most of retirement

Many people have not come across live-in companionship care efore ut now find it offers a positive choice to enrich their lives, and someone to share and enjoy this wonderful county with, ensuring they remain settled in the community they know and love.

£525,000

This attractive four bedroom detached property has an enviable location as part of a small exclusive development alongside the fifteenth fairway of Bowood Park Golf Course.

St Mabyn

£365,000

This characterful three bedroom cottage is situated on the very edge of the popular village of St Mabyn. Thought to be built in the early 1800’s, the property can be found at the end of a long tree lined driveway in a semi rural position.

Tregonce, St Issey

£825,000

Situated just above the Camel Estuary in the tranquility of the pretty hamlet of Tregonce, within a short drive of both picturesque Padstow and bustling Wadebridge is this exquisitely presented and maintained three bedroom detached barn conversion. The property dates back over 100 years and was originally the cowshed for the neighbouring farmhouse, which was converted in 1998 into the substantial home it is today. The property successfully combines original character with contemporary fixtures and fittings to create a hugely welcoming ambience in a reverse living style that maximises the views across the Camel Estuary, the iron bridge, to Padstow and out to sea. EPC C

£575,000

Located in a peaceful, secluded and elevated position within this favoured market town is this substantial, detached and well presented four bedroom family home on the market for the first time in 33 years.

The property can be found at the end of a private tree lined lane, shared only with a few neighbouring properties and occupies a plot of approximately one third of an acre. The undisturbed, private and convenient area of Gonvena provides a far reaching outlook across the town and beyond while it is just a short stroll into the town itself. EPC D
