The water, despite the dropping air temperatures, is at its warmest, having soaked up the summer sun, and the beaches are much quieter. Forever Cornwall has a great selection of idyllic surf retreats and chalets, accommodating you just moments from the surfi ng action.

Joe Armstrong grew up in London where he studied Art and Design at Epsom School of Art for five years. fter wor ing in advertising for a number of years in London, Joe moved to Cornwall in 1986 and had a successful year career as a raphic esigner.

at West Kellow Yurts

West Kellow Yurts is situated in Polperro on the edge of a solar, wheat and barley farm, offering an eco-friendly yurt campsite with a wealth of great coastal walks, coves, beaches and attractions nearby. The location is probably the best feature as it’s peaceful, yet close to the village. et in a nine acre field with a sea view next to a quiet country lane, there are very few passers by and noise, in fact, it’s mainly just the local birds you’ll hear. You can rent one of the three yurts (as well as the wagon/bell tent in peak season) for two or more nights, or book the whole site with your friends and family. The site has solar panel energy sourced fro the neighbouring field and there is fresh spring water available as well as both indoor and barbeque cooking facilities.

When you’re not relaxing on the tranquil site, make the most of the local area with the pictures ue fishing village of olperro nearby as well as Looe and Fowey.

Painting however was always a long-held desire for Joe and he has since digressed into painting full-time. Joe is now showing and selling work in galleries around Cornwall and has collectors and followers around the world. “I get so excited when confronted with a blank canvas on my easel. I love utilising colour to represent natural surroundings. I also love the texture of oil paint on canvas and use a palette knife and my hands to create it, this gives my work a ore abstract and less precise finish and glad that my paintings have a vibrant and spontaneous look and feel.” Joe tells us.

THE SEARCH IS ON Finding your dream home can absorb a lot of your time, so why not let the experts do it for you? TOP é Stacks specialise in off-market houses RIGHT ì View from a clifftop house successfully bought by Stacks in 2019 INSET ì Georgian farmhouse overlooking the Camel Estuary, privately acquired summer 2019

S

tacks Property Search are experienced and professional search agents who can help you find the best property in Cornwall, saving you hours on the computer and fewer wasted journeys to view unsuitable houses. We hear from Cornwall Regional Director Clare Coode who tells us: “People often mistake us for estate agents, but in fact we are totally independent. We work exclusively for buyers, finding houses to suit every need shortlisting the offering a video viewing service and organising e cient personal viewings in Cornwall. With our extensive network of local contacts we often buy property before it even reaches the open market, giving an incalculable advantage to our clients.” The benefits of this are easy to i agine first and foremost it means that Stacks provide a service that is completely tailored to you, the buyer, rather than favouring the interests of the seller. They take the majority of the stress and hassle of searching for a house off your hands and leave you with the fun bit – choosing your favourite. With close contacts in estate agencies and across the county, Stacks often know of properties that are privately available. Clare elaborates: “The most recent two deals I did were both off-market – a spectacular clifftop house which we were offered exclusively by niche local agent John Bray, and a Georgian farmhouse with extensive barns and 50

acres of land which I heard about on the local grapevine. There are currently some absolutely incredible houses which are quietly for sale that I am very excited about for my current clients. Discretion is a big part of the job, and I always protect the privacy of both buyers and sellers when required.” But finding houses is only half the ob. nce a perfect house has been found, Stacks do extensive due diligence on the property to find out the bac story and offer expert advice on value before negotiating with the estate agents to ensure the optimum circumstances for the sale. nce the offer has been accepted tac s will guide you through the inefield of surveys solicitors and paperwork that property acquisition requires, right up until exchange of contracts. Even once your property is secured they will continue to assist by recommending and liaising with local tradesmen, suppliers and removers and will be on hand to troubleshoot any issues that may arise, providing an all-encompassing property acquisition service that takes the stress out of buying a house in Cornwall.

OLDEST SHOP

IN TOWN!

For 100 years now, Glanvilles has been part of the fabric and landscape of the historic town of Wadebridge.

A

saddler by trade, Ernest Glanville Senior, returning home from the Great War full of hope for the future, began visiting local farms to mend harnesses, taking selected ironmongery and household goods with hi . This edgling business grew and in the 1930s three cottages in Polmorla Road were purchased and Glanville & Sons was born. Today’s customer base is far wider with people travelling from both ends of the country and seasonal visitors seeing the ‘Glanville experience’ as part of their family’s annual tradition. “Today’s Glanvilles bears little resemblance to those early days, apart from our continued belief in customer service and quality,” explains Glanvilles’ Marketing Assistant, Liz de Selincourt. “Rosie has taken over the reins from her parents, Charles and Brigitte Glanville, to develop a much-respected cookware and housewares shop downstairs specialising in premium brands for amateur cooks and professionals alike.” Meanwhile upstairs, Guy de Selincourt has established one of the most comprehensive lighting departments in the south west. “Glanvilles Lighting stands for quality and an eye for design. We have plenty of choice, both in our showroom

and in stock, whether you’re looking for a vintage, industrial, modern contemporary or nautical look,” Guy tells us. “As we look to the future," explains Rosie Hamm, “and see increasing numbers of customers embracing the sea-change in thinking about the environment – to address waste, pollution and the use of chemicals – we buy from British manufacturers (whenever possible), offering products that last and those made from ethically produced, natural or recycled materials. We source products from companies making positive environmental contributions, like tree planting and ocean clean-up schemes, so that we can help meet this demand.” If you're thinking about home improvement, why not pop in and see Glanvilles’ extensive range of housewares and lighting for yourself?

to Cornwall Living’s grown-up getaway

W

elcome to our special Cornwall Living supplement, dedicated to one of the south west’s best boutique hotels and spa for grown-ups only, Merchants Manor – set atop the hills of Falmouth overlooking the secluded bays and creeks of the Cornish riviera. The hotel has carved out quite the name for itself since being acquired by couple Nick and Sioned back in 2012. Returning this country house by the sea to its roots, the hotel places a focus on adult-only escapes, with an emphasis on warm service, outstanding food and drink, creating a guilt-free, recharging getaway thanks to its eco credentials. The decision to create a hotel for grown-ups, removing the function room (yes, no parties disturbing your experience) and creating a hub for food, drink and service was a bold move, but one that sees many oc ing bac each year. Meeting with Sioned, the driving force behind the guest experience is fascinating. She explains the decision to do things differently. The standard reception desk, which can be seen as creating a barrier, has been replaced by a partnership with o t handon to open ornwall s first champagne arrivals lounge. “At the heart of our hotel is service,” says Sioned. “People can be shoc ed when they first wal in and as where is the reception desk?’ However, with a glass of Moët & Chandon, our team soon break the ice and help people start to relax after their journey. Our team are the beating heart of the business and we go to extreme lengths to recruit passionate people who genuinely care for our guests. The goal is to feel at home in the surroundings and with the team.” The same level of care goes into Rastella (old ornish for grill which is the hot tic et on the south coast food scene right now. One of only four

restaurants in the county to be awarded a coveted three osettes you can find out ore fro hef Patron, Hylton Espey on page 42. Will O’Shea, the Hotel Manger explains that it does not stop with food. “We have the largest wine selection in the area, and within the rare breeds category we have some of the only bottles in Europe and when they are gone we start the hunt for the next small-batch artisan producer.” The train of thought and caring continues through into the eco credentials of the hotel, with nearly all the menu sourced locally, its own Cornish black bee colony, a drinks list with over 70 eco wines and spirits the first next generation high-speed electric vehicle charge point in the county and even producing their own hot water and electric. Looking to the future, Merchants Manor is keen to continue its mission to intrinsically link physical wellbeing, via the Linen Rooms Spa, with the wellbeing of the environ ent. t s the first hotel in the UK to join the global project to create a sustainable future called t ust be ow . ic says “We look at every opportunity and new development and ensure there is a way to reduce our footprint. A great example is the new infrared sauna we recently installed. We have ensured the construction is in eco certified wood and it has reduced energy consumption by 80% over the previous, and we have even upcycled the old one. “Making a positive difference, providing memorable moments for our guests, with amazing food, drink and service against the back drop of a guilt-free pleasure is what we are all about and not many can truly say that.” Read on to discover everything that makes erchants anor one of ornwall s finest.

ornish food and drink is some of the best in the country. “We’d be crazy not to take advantage of that,” explains Merchants Manor Proprietor, Nick Rudlin, “which is why we produce nature inspired food that ticks all the boxes.” Rastella is the highest rated dining experience in Falmouth. From locally-foraged greens, butchers and garden markets, to the love Chef Patron Hytlon Espey puts into every dish, there is one mantra in the Rastella kitchen: “What grows to together, goes together.” This makes every breakfast, lunch and dinner here a journey around Cornwall. Now, don’t get me wrong, Cornwall has some exceptional restaurants but the very nature of our seaside location means that while food is first class the a bience is often laid bac . hile heading to dinner straight from the beach in shorts and ip ops obviously has its appeal sometimes something a little more chic is the order of the day. We’d heard many good things about Rastella, the restaurant at Merchants Manor in Falmouth, not least of which is its recently awarded and highly coveted third AA Rosette – one of only four restaurants in Cornwall to boast this accolade. Chef Patron, Hylton Espey,

was born and raised in South Africa. It was Merchants Manor’s devotion to using the finest fresh local ingredients an ethos that matches Hylton’s own, along with a love of the sea that drew him to Falmouth and Rastella. It has proved to be a match made in heaven. On arrival you can’t fail to be bowled over by the grandeur of the building – the ivy-clad doorway heralds an opulent interior where sparkling chandeliers light up the traditional entrance hall. The bar and dining roo rival the very finest of London restaurants when it comes to style and ambience. The tables are adorned with crisp linen and the cutlery shimmers in the evening light as we are shown to our table. hef ylton oins us to introduce our first course – Game Bird – pheasant, reared on the nearby Roseland, served with puffed heritage grains and a plum caramel. The richness of the fowl is cut through beautifully with the sweet, but slightly acidic plum caramel. It’s paired perfectly with a glass of Trevibban Mill arlyn an off dry white that has avours of watermelon and honey. We learn that Hylton takes daily foraging trips along the coast to pick fresh sea vegetables for his outstanding dishes and udging by the avours of what s on our plates, it would seem that what grows together really does go together! Nowhere is that more apparent than in tonight’s main dish of the intriguingly named Trewithick Pastures. Hylton is on hand to explain that the lamb he’s about to serve comes from a farm nearby, where the la bs gra e on fields overloo ing the sea above Porthleven. This lamb combines perfectly with fresh, local crab and a foraged vegetable selection of rock samphire and sea aster. Even part of the lamb in the dish is roasted with hay from the very farm from whence it came. Everything is cooked to perfection and is served with Hylton’s signature B.O.F.G.A – a burnt onion fermented garlic aioli.

Rastella is the highest rated dining experience in Falmouth

LEFT What grows together goes together!

We are treated to a Black Ram Red, again from Trevibban Mill, to drink with our lamb. Hints of aromatic herbs, leather and vanilla, along with spicy top notes of clove and li uorice are a fitting acco pani ent. t s no doubt that Hylton’s attention to detail and superb skill in all areas are what won him the three AA Rosettes and he proves that his talent goes beyond the savoury. Dessert is perfectly formed and perfectly named for the time of year – autumn. Perhaps best described as a ‘deconstructed pumpkin pie’ we are treated to a swathe of sweet and gently spiced pumpkin along with a chai sorbet and crisp ginger fairing crumbs, topped off with a gently sparkling dessert wine courtesy of Fontanafredda Asti. Light and delicious, this ends a meal that has been very special in many ways. Although part of the hotel, Rastella feels very much like a standalone restaurant, and has a chic and stylish identity of its own. The service throughout the meal was unobtrusive, yet impeccable and the wine choice a triumph. We resolved that this is a dining room we will return to for many a special occasion or celebratory dinner.

RAISE A GLASS Rastella’s carefully curated wine list includes one of the country’s largest selections of organic, vegan, vegetarian, biodynamic and natural wines. From ‘rare breeds’ with some of the most world-renowned vintages, to ‘easy drinkers’, there really is something for everyone.

Situated just four miles away from St Michael's Mount and Mount’s Bay on the west coast, these holiday homes provide the perfect base from which to explore this mesmerising corner of Cornwall. The collection of cottages can be booked individually or together for 2 to 24 people. With each luxury holiday home having been newly built to the highest standards, you can expect en-suite bathrooms, smart TVs in every roo as well as superfast fibre broadband. The Woodland Collection was founded by Richard and Helen, who are keen to share with their guests the beautiful landscape that they call home. Helen tells us: “Having worked in the city, I know how special it is to take a lungful of fresh air, wander through the fields and ga e long into the evening at shooting stars overhead. It’s a pure joy to welcome visitors to this little slice of Eden.” The location really is idyllic. Just a short drive away from St Ives, Porthleven and Kynance Cove, there’s plenty to see and do from this central west Cornwall location. Enjoy boutique shops in picturesque towns, take a boat trip along the River Fal or explore the many walking trails that surround The Woodland Collection. There’s a plethora of attractions to see and enjoy, such as St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre, the Tate Modern in St Ives and many more.

s with a Morgan car or a Rolex watch, a Rustler Yacht is an investment for the future. Hand built, bespoke and combing a unique mixture of traditional methods and cutting-edge technology, a Rustler Yacht comes from a pedigree that has become a design classic. Established in Falmouth in 1985, Rustler Yachts moved to its current site between Falmouth and Penryn in 2000. Experiencing steady growth since then, the company now employs over 45 people, many of whom are highly skilled crafts people. All of the yachts are entirely hand built, to the highest specifications and represent a odern tradition of fast, retro-styled yachts that are a charm to sail. Rustler Yachts has an enviable reputation and a loyal client base, with owners often returning to upgrade or to buy another boat. Placing great emphasis on quality and craftsmanship, customers are encouraged to be involved throughout the build process, ensuring that the end product is exactly what they want and because of that, each Rustler yacht is unique. Chatting with Sales Director, Adrian Jones, he explains the buying process: “Typically, we will first eet a custo er about two years before they commit to commissioning a new

yacht. We show them around the production facility, and almost certainly take them for a trial sail. We try to get to know them, and how they intend to sail (and where), and then start to build an idea of how their own boat would be specified. t ustler achts co issioning a boat is much more like a partnership than a typical customer-vendor situation. Adrian continues: “Once ordered, we offer as many visits as the new owner can manage. Some boat builders don’t appreciate owners visiting as they are afraid that it can distract from the production process – we take the opposite view. The closer to the ‘build’ of their boat the owner is, the better the relationship they have with it. This also means that the Rustler team, the guys and girls who actually build the boats, get to know who they are building for and that eans a lot. The build team works across three different specialities in the climate controlled factory: engineering, composite and joinery. They all work alongside each other, and know that each discipline is as important as the next. The team covers all age ranges, and as Adrian says: “they are the real stars! We try to make the factory as exible as possible and it is think, a pretty cool place to work. Personally still get a ic out of raw aterials arriving at one end of the factory and a beautiful yacht e erging fro the other

The last twelve years has seen the Rustler range grow into a diverse collection of beautiful boats, ranging from a 24ft dayboat to a 57ft world cruiser. So, whether you are a keen day sailor wanting to explore the Cornish coastal waters, a blue water yachtsman or an experienced ocean mariner looking for something to take you across the Atlantic, the choice is yours. Newly commissioned yacht designs are the work of renowned, British boat designer, Stephen Jones, who has built a close relationship with the team in Falmouth over the many years he has been designing Rustler yachts. ach year the tea build about five yachts over 37ft and six or seven smaller boats, giving an idea of the amount of work that goes into each one – every piece of engineering, moulding and joinery is carried out by Rustler staff, in the Falmouth factory, making a Rustler yacht Cornish, born and bred. Solid design, build quality and exibility of build process are at the heart of what makes these yachts special. They are by no means at the less expensive end of the scale, but that is because they are constructed with the very best of British craftsmanship. t is clear that everyone at ustler is passionate about yachts, and this is an enthusiasm that is shared by their owners. The yachts are built for real-life cruising, prioritising comfort and safety at sea, while at the same time being deceptively fast with easy motion. “Above all, we never forget that yachting is supposed to be fun, and we believe that also includes having your own boat built concludes drian.

CONSULTING

the experts

George at Cornish Traditional Cottages explains how saving on expenses will further increase your holiday let profits.

O é ABOVE George and the team know how to maximise your holiday home’s potential

ne tip that George offers is to keep your property snug. “Good insulation can save hundreds of pounds a year on heating bills, so when you’re carrying out a refurbishment, be sure you maximise insulation throughout. This includes the room, cavity walls, even windows and doors – ensuring they don’t let anything in or out unless they’re open.” He also suggests paying extra for longer warranties on your appliances, which he explains can save money in the long run. Giving guidelines to streamline the changeover can be a good idea too: “Asking guests to tidy before they leave, put out the rubbish and place dirty towels in the bath – these can all help ease the work on changeover day. You should also be crystal clear on house rules, for instance, where guests can and can’t smoke; where pets are allowed. Be sure to state in your contract, too, that any heavy duty cleaning required after their stay will incur an extra fee.” So how else can you save money on running your holiday let? Keeping on top of aintenance for one is a sure fire way of keeping costs down in the long run. As George puts it, “the longer you leave a proble the ore it costs to fix. e explains that carrying out regular checks after each stay and making a thorough inspection at regular intervals will help. “A stitch in time saves nine,” as the old adage goes!

You should also shop around for utility providers, comparing tariffs and services for electricity and gas suppliers. “Most offer combined tariffs,” George says, “but don’t assume these are cheaper than having separate providers. The same applies to internet connections too: check out online deals, as some companies offer generous discounts if you sign up online or pay by monthly direct debit.” While you’re at it, keep your eyes open for good deals on furniture fixtures and fittings. While you should certainly buy the best you can afford (quality furniture will last much longer and create a better impression among your guests), by looking out for seasonal sales – those just after Christmas, for instance – you can often equip your holiday let with quality items for much less than you’d think! George and the Cornish Traditional Cottages team are experts when it comes to ensuring your holiday let is a success. For more professional advice on making the most of yours, why not give them a call?

CHARITY |

FAMILY TIME The kitchen is the heart of the hospice at Little Harbour where families come together to enjoy good food and share experiences with others.

M

aking the most of short and precious lives has been the aim of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) since it started 28 years ago. It now has three children’s hospices in the south west; Little Bridge House in Barnstaple, Charlton Farm in Bristol and Little Harbour in mid-Cornwall. The charity offers expert medical care, in a home from home environment, for children who sadly are not expected to live into adulthood. The majority of Little Harbour’s care is respite, providing families with short stays where their children’s complex medical needs are met, parents have a break from being primary carers, brothers and sisters are supported by the dedicated sibling team and the whole family can relax, making precious memories together. It also offers palliative care, emergency stays, end of life care and bereavement support. Families often say it is the small things that make the biggest difference, like the chance to sit and eat together so ething they find di cult to find ti e for at ho e. ood plays a significant role at ittle arbour siblings baking, cooks preparing home-cooked meals and families eating together around the dining table. CHSW’s new fundraising initiative, Cook Eat Give, stems from the idea of enjoying good food with friends and family, and this October CHSW invites people to join them for some foodie fundraising. The appeal encourages supporters to get involved by
