Our cover feature is all about exploring Cornwall on two wheels, across the many scenic off-road trails. There’s something for everyone, from the sedate to the daring mountain biker… we even provide suggestions for the all-important ice-cream stops! If you love holidaying in Cornwall and are thinking of investing in a holiday home, or perhaps making the move permanently, you might be tempted by the range of stunning properties currently on the market with Savills. We also provide advice from agents and interior design services that can both help you in your search for the dream property and even fully kit it out for you so it’s ready to move straight in and enjoy from the start. But if you’d just like to sample the delights of Cornwall for a short break, we suggest some gorgeous properties and hotels to make as your home from home. Whether looking for a sumptous spa break or a foodie pilgrimage; a family holiday or a romantic getaway for two, there’s an escape in here just for you. So, find a pen, pour a glass of red, and start planning your next Cornish adventure!

Got to visit... LUSTY GLAZE

A

location really doesn’t get more idyllic than Lusty Glaze, a stunning, privately owned sandy cove in Newquay overlooking the dramatic Atlantic ocean. After a stroll along the golden sand or a day splashing in the waves, cap it off by booking at Lusty Glaze Beach restaurant, open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cove makes a beautiful natural amphitheatre, celebrated for its popular summer music programme but it’s an equally welcoming venue over Christmas too, with two woodburners and a gorgeous set menu for large parties or an a la carte winter menu offering plenty of choice for smaller groups. From large scale cooperate events to breathtaking beach weddings, Lusty Glaze stands alone as the ultimate beachside venue

Make your move with Live Beside the Sea For many people starting a new life in Cornwall is a longed for dream. All too often, however, life is too busy or demanding to find the time to look for the perfect home. This is where Live Beside the Sea comes in, a bespoke property search agency based at the heart of Cornwall. Acquiring a property that also provides an income may be a priority for your fresh start, or perhaps a relaxing home with sea views as a pre-retirement investment. There is no limit to the possibilities that Cornwall has to offer those looking for adventure and change in their lives.

Fish suppers for the RNLI The RNLI – the charity that saves lives at sea – is encouraging people across the UK to cook a fish supper for friends and family to raise money for the volunteer crew members who often have to sacrifice dinner with their loved ones to help those in trouble at sea. The campaign aims to encourage people across the UK to cook up a fishy dish for family and friends to raise money for the crew members, who voluntarily sacrifice dinner time with their loved ones to respond to emergencies at sea. From gourmet lobster thermidor, to the classic British fish and chips, Fish Supper is a time for family and friends to come together! The importance of togetherness and team spirit is central to the RNLI, and is what makes the charity and its volunteers so special. Fish Supper takes place between 14th and 16th October, but you can hold your dinner party on any date suitable for you. For more information visit www.rnli.org/fishsupper

The team at Live Beside the Sea work with their clients’ wishes and lifestyle needs, using their vast knowledge of the county to achieve excellent results. Working in close collaboration with Wright House Designs, the properties found for clients can be redesigned if desired, to create the perfect Cornish retreat that feels like home from the moment you move in!

Make house hunting in Cornwall fun and exciting with help from Stacks House hunting should be fun, not stressful and time consuming. Yet many house hunters in Cornwall are trying to juggle family life and work while travelling up and down each time any of the estate agents tell them there is a house coming on that they mustn’t miss out on. Nicola Oddy, Regional Director of Stacks Property Search in Cornwall, often takes on clients who have started their hunt for a dream home but for whom the excitement has already been tarnished by the effort involved in the process. Nicola says: “It’s important to put that magic and excitement back. By involving a buyers agent, the house buyer saves themselves huge amounts of time, effort and stress, and often money as well by taking a back seat in the negotiations. They also gain a familiar face with local knowledge who will still be there when they move in.” For more information, call Nicola on 07770 901348 or email nicolaoddy@stacks.co.uk

PEDAL POWER With many miles of cycle routes and trails across Cornwall, what better way to take in our wonderful landscape than on two wheels?

I

t’s all too easy to jump in the car these days – we’re all guilty of it, and why not when it gets us from a to b in the quickest time – but next time you’re looking to explore why not consider a day out on a bicycle? One of my most vivid childhood memories is when the stabilisers came off my bike. I was so proud of my sparkly purple steed, rescued from a skip and re-sprayed by my ever-resourceful dad. On taking those first, rather wobbly, unaided pedal strokes down the garden path I felt like I could take over the world! It was the start of a lifetime love affair with bikes and cycling and living in Cornwall has meant that I have had the most beautiful backdrop for my passion. As we go to print we are in the grip of Olympic cycling fever. Rio 2016 saw no less than 12 cycling medals, six of them gold. Chris Froome stood on the top step of the podium in Paris for the third time and

Mark Cavendish took his tally of stage wins in this iconic race to an impressive 30. These sportsmen and women are the elite in the sport, but cycling is by no means elitist. The beauty of a bike is that we can all benefit from it in its simplest form. From the very young to the very old, and everywhere in between, getting out on two wheels doesn’t have to involve lycra and carbon fibre. A simple ride through stunning countryside or along a coastal track is not only good for your health it’s good for the soul. Here in Cornwall we are lucky to have many quiet B-roads and back lanes that make road cycling a pleasure all year round. In springtime, our wooded lanes are

words by:

Hannah Tapping

awash with vibrant bluebells and nodding yellow daffodils. Summer brings the smell of sea on the breeze, while the smell of hearty roast dinners and open fires fills the air on Sunday autumn rides. If cycling on the road doesn’t appeal then Cornwall has a wide range of traffic-free cycling trails for all abilities. Many have bike hire available and most have a café along the way where you can stop and refuel. This is our guide to our favourite trails around the county – happy cycling!

“To me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining or whatever: as long as I’m riding a bike I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world” Mark Cavendish

Lanhydrock Bike Trail Ten kilometres of fantastic trails have recently been created at the National Trust owned Lanhydrock Estate after £3million worth of investment. The trails are graded Green (easy) and Blue (moderate) offering something for all skill levels. The Green trail is a gentle 1.5-mile ride that wends its way through the estate’s woodland, suitable for trailers and tag-a-longs. The Blue trails offer some exciting single track for the more advanced rider and The Saw Pit has been created especially for those wanting to hone their technical skills. A great place to take the family with the bonus of an adventure playground should anyone have any energy left!

The Camel Trail Beginning at Wenfordbridge near Bodmin, the Camel Trail stretches for 18 miles culminating at the foodie haven of Padstow. The trail follows a former railway line so is wonderfully flat and ideal for youngsters just starting out. It runs through both a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) affording its users some of the most beautiful views of the Camel estuary and wooded scenery through the Camel Valley.

The Bissoe Trail This trail forms part of the Mineral Tramway Trail that takes you from the Atlantic coast at Portreath, across west Cornwall to the pretty waterside village of Devoran. Some sections are more difficult than others with varied surfaces, so expect to encounter a few hills and some rugged terrain along the way. The area has some of the county’s best conserved mine buildings and takes riders on an interesting tour through some of Cornwall’s mining heritage. The full trail includes the more demanding Unity Woods and Poldice Valley, while the stretch from Devoran to Bissoe is quite gentle and makes a good ‘out and return’ ride for little ones with a welcome café stop at Bike Chain Bissoe – the flapjack is legendary!

Cardinham Woods For those cyclists who are up for a bit more excitement then the 12km Bodmin Beast, on the slopes of the Cardinham Valley, is a great challenge. As its name suggest this trail isn’t for the faint hearted and is one of Cornwall’s best singletrack trails. Keen mountain bikers will love the tough climbs and gnarly descents and there are a couple of difficult graded sections, Dialled-in-Dave and Hell’s Teeth, for those proficient mountain bikers who want to take it to the next level. If you’re after a gentler pace then Cardinham has some lovely waymarked walking trails and the Woods Café is a great place for refreshments.

M

agical, individual west Cornwall is home to smugglers’ coves, dramatic coastal scenery, stunning beaches and traditional fishing villages. Tucked away in this part of the world, near to Penzance, is Botrea House: a rustic and charming property that is far from the madding crowd but within easy reach of the local sights and amenities. Penzance is a historic port with pubs, restaurants, galleries and shops, dominated by the majestic St Michael’s Mount, accessible only by cobbled causeway or boat. The Paddington to Penzance trainline terminates in the town just yards from the sea. Botrea sits at the head of around 28.5 acres of gardens, grounds and woodland, and has huge potential for equestrian buyers or those looking to escape to countryside paradise. Inside, the kitchen is the real heart of the home, defined by an extraordinary inglenook fireplace with a contemporary wood burner. There’s enough space for two to sit either side, perfect for staying warm while watching night fall through the glazed kitchen extension. In the superb and spacious sitting room, the bones of this country house are revealed in style with exposed painted beams. In here you’ll find charming recesses and a Morso wood burner for keeping cosy in the winter months. Also on the ground floor are a study, downstairs toilet, games room and utility

area with plenty of room to store surfboards, wetsuits and the various things accumulated when living by the coast. Upstairs each bedroom enjoys wonderful views over the grounds and out to the open countryside. The annexe can be accessed from this floor or from the outside, ideal for a dependent relative or grown up child where everyone can have their own space. There is a double bedroom, an open-plan living room and kitchen with an impressive centrally placed wood burner. Outside, attached to the side of the main house, is a two-storey garden store, which provides a useful space for the lawnmower or any garden tools. Within the grounds there is also an attractive two-storey barn or stable, which was granted planning consent in 1996 for conversion into a dwelling. A technical start was made and in 2001 the council confirmed that the consent would last in perpetuity. Botrea is a countryside haven, bursting with opportunities both indoors and out. A true happy home for all of the family.

Lower Hamatethy

An idyllic country abode, set within magical and secluded waterside gardens.

INFORMATION Beautiful country house Detached annexe Around 20 acres Five bedrooms Wonderful mature gardens Well constructed triple garage Good access to the main A30 carriageway Near to the mainline station at Bodmin Parkway

T

he enchanting Lower Hamatethy lies in an ancient wooded valley, not far from St Breward, a traditional Cornish village set high on the western escarpment of Bodmin Moor, with a primary school, village shop, chapel and traditional pub. The location might be described as a walker’s paradise; from the house, tree-lined lanes and footpaths bordered by Cornish granite hedges stretch out onto the moors, leading to some of the county’s most admired scenery. Neighbouring the impressive Hamatethy Manor, which dates back to Norman times, Lower Hamatethy has been evolved from a smaller original cottage. Externally the property is charming, with wisteria-clad walls and an elegant colonnaded entrance through which you’ll discover an interior that has been sympathetically restored over the years, achieving a contemporary feel while maintaining much of what is admired in a period property. The bright kitchen is a wonderful family space, with a central island and Poggenpohl units together with traditional flagstone flooring and oil-fired AGA. At the front of the property, there’s a quiet sitting room with a bright study to one side, while the large and grand dining area is perfect for entertaining guests, conveniently opening out onto the south-facing gardens. The sitting room is the place for enjoying views of the stunning

grounds and is centred around a warming fireplace with original granite lintel and Jotul wood burner. All bedrooms are beautifully finished, some with traditional features and all with glorious outlooks over the gardens. The master suite on the first floor has triple aspect views over the grounds and a spacious en suite. Ideal for extended family and visiting friends, the separate guest wing has an en suite with a luxurious brushed steel roll top bath and a glazed balcony. Or, perhaps for use as a holiday let, the studio annexe offers a combined living and bedroom area, kitchenette and en suite. The gardens and grounds are the jewels in Lower Hamatethy’s crown. Southwest-facing valley gardens gently slope towards the stream that runs through the gardens with a footbridge further downstream. Gravelled pathways wind their way past delightful shrubs, trees and there is a lovely slate paved terrace to the front. The surrounding land, much of it sloping pasture, is divided into a woodland area and a number of fields.

estled on the side of an unspoilt rural valley and approached through grand cast iron gates, Ambleside Manor offers a secluded retreat at the same time as being conveniently located for Cornwall Airport, the main A30 carriageway, Truro train station, and some of the best north coast surfing beaches. Built in the 1890s and refurbished throughout in 2011, this property is a fine example of a country house and has plenty of space for all the family and visiting friends. The front door opens into a galleried hallway, which leads through to the reception rooms, including the triple aspect sitting room, a relaxing and light filled space with a multi-fuel burning stove for cooler Cornish evenings. The bespoke kitchen is a large and sociable room, with an island unit, breakfast bar, comprehensive range of Miele appliances, solid granite worktops and a walk-in pantry – perfect for lazy, weekend breakfasts with the family and dinner parties alike. Or, for evenings eating out, nearby are the foodie havens of Watergate Bay, home to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen; Fistral, where you’ll find the Michelin-starred Fish House; and, a little further north, Padstow with Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant. Also on the ground floor are the library, office and cloakroom. There is a utility room equipped with a range of base and

wall units, full-height cupboards, airing cupboard and sink, a useful space for drying coats, shoes or even the dog, after a wet winter walk. On rainy days children can be entertained with a movie in the cinema room, a space that you could easily convert into a gym depending on your requirements. Upstairs are five double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and an elegant family bathroom, with the majority of the bathroom fixtures and fittings by Villeroy & Boch. Step outside and you’ll find a large parking area and double garage. The glorious front and rear gardens are well bordered and awash with a colourful variety of plants and shrubs. There is a lovely, generous timber summerhouse in the rear garden, together with a paved patio area and raised bed for your own homegrown vegetables! If you’re looking for space, privacy, gardens to enjoy, beaches and coastal walks, at the same time as remaining firmly connected to other parts of the country, Ambleside Manor presents an excellent lifestyle opportunity, for all of the family.

or those who love the sea, coastal walks, wild swims, nature and boats, Cove Cottage is a dream come true. Perched on Cape Cornwall coastline and bordered by National Trust land, this property and its grounds are part of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Yet, at the same time as feeling far away and timeless, the cottage remains well connected to the rest of Cornwall, with the town of St Just a mile away. St Just has a strong sense of community: there are food stores, a bakery (the oldest Cornish pasty maker in the world), two cafes, a post office, surgery, pubs, art galleries and Cape Cornwall School, with specialist arts status. Nearby, the town of Penzance is the terminus for the mainline to London Paddington. Finished with a subtle nod to the seaside, Cove Cottage has a small but tastefully finished interior. The open-plan sitting and dining room has a cosy log burner and opens out to a southeast-facing side terrace. To the rear, there is a downstairs shower room with adjoining utility room, perfect for getting out of your wet swimming things and straight into a hot shower. The smart galley kitchen leads down to a second sitting room, with spectacular sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows and double French doors. This impressive room opens out to the terrace, where you can

watch waves crash in the winter and enjoy al fresco dining in the summer. Sightings of basking sharks, dolphins, gannets or even peregrine falcons are not uncommon from the vantage point of the Cape Cornwall coastline – keep your eyes peeled! On the upper floor, the master bedroom enjoys sweeping views across the garden and out to sea. There is a further double bedroom, a single bedroom facing south, and a goodsized bathroom. The cottage benefits from a slate flagstoned wraparound terrace on the north and east sides, providing plenty of spots to watch the sun sink into the Atlantic ocean. From here the garden flows down in a number of terraced lawns to the paddock. There is an original, south-facing fisherman’s shed with space to store small craft and a gate leading to the slipway path. Cove Cottage truly is a one-of-a-kind property, where a unique coastal lifestyle can be enjoyed.

ummer in Cornwall has flown by in a blaze of glorious beach days, fun-packed visits and some fabulous food. To avoid the post summer blues we’re busy planning our next holiday adventure. While the sun may have taken its leave Cornwall is just as spectacular in winter as it is in summer. The coastline becomes all the more rugged during the winter season with moody skies, wild walks and stormy seas. With the summer crowds long gone there is something very special about a winter walk along a deserted Cornish beach, wrapped up against the elements with the promise of a roaring fire and a steaming cup of coffee to return to. For the ultimate winter break in Cornwall, you can’t beat celebrating Christmas on the coast. Recently awarded Luxury Modern Hotel of the Year by the Luxury Travel Guide, the four-star Atlantic Hotel in Newquay has the ideal festive package to celebrate in style with your family. For some, spending Christmas away from home can be a little daunting, but a stay at the Atlantic Hotel will make everyone feel special. As you open the curtains you’ll be faced with the most glorious of sea views out across the ocean. Days start with hearty

breakfasts at the Atlantic – you’ll need to be fully fuelled for that family beach walk across Fistral. Once the cobwebs have well and truly been blown away it’s back to the hotel for a swim – we recommend adults indulge themselves in a relaxing spa treatment – before the children are treated to a High Tea Christmas Party. For the grownups a champagne reception followed by a candlelit dinner will make this a Cornish Christmas Eve to remember. On Christmas Day the whole family can sit down and relax over a five-course lunch set against the backdrop of the sea, with a special visit from Father Christmas for the little ones. What a treat – no slaving over a hot stove and not a dish in sight! If that wasn’t enough excitement for one day then a big screening of Elf accompanied with buttery popcorn, hot chocolate and cookies provides the perfect end to a perfect day. Christmas in Cornwall is really not to be missed!

estled in the heart of the Cornish countryside, surrounded by wild bunnies, endless meadows and subtropical flora, but still just a five-minute drive from the golden beaches of the south coast, you’ll find Trewhiddle Park. This wonderfully relaxing haven on the outskirts of St Austell is home to a cluster of beautiful Cornish properties. You’d be hard pressed to find a more idyllic location, perched on the doorstep of world-renowned tourist attractions including the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the many other subtropical gardens and grand country houses of the south coast. What’s more, taking the keys to your own personal paradise is actually more attainable than you might think. One of Natural Retreats’ three or four-bedroom luxury villas could be yours to own starting from as little as £235,000. Bask in the luxury of indulgent, chic interiors, complete with under-heated floors and en-suite bathrooms. After an action-packed day exploring the locale, retreat to your sumptous private decking area to enjoy a glass of something cool and refreshing in the afternoon sun. Trewhiddle Park is ideal for those looking to secure a lifetime of family holidays – it’s where lifelong memories are created; perfect for bringing together several generations under one roof to enjoy some quality time together. Purchasing your own Trewhiddle holiday

home is not just a welcome move for the family; with a 7% guaranteed investment return, it makes great business sense too. With the current tourism instability across Europe, increasingly more UK residents are looking to enjoy a ‘staycation’ instead of holidaying abroad, presenting a fantastic opportunity to make the most of your investment. There are many other benefits of choosing Natural Retreats, not least full access to the concierge service with local experts providing unrivalled knowledge of the area, on-hand to help with any request, from groceries to restaurant recommendations. Another great owner perk is the exchange programme, giving access to a plethora of stunning properties in other locations, meaning that while you enjoy all benefits of owning your own holiday home, you are not permanently tied to it. Then again, once you discover Trewhiddle, why would you want to go anywhere else? So what are you waiting for? It’s time to make your dreams a reality.

A

small village situated on the north coast of Cornwall, around the corner from Padstow, Polzeath is one of the world’s most renowned surfing destinations. The golden, sandy beach stretches magnificently between Pentire Head to the north and High Cliff to the west. At the heart of this stunning location is Ann’s Cottage Surf Shop. When it opened back in 1978, everything was under one roof, including the shop floor, warehouse, head office and the buying team. Since then, head office has moved to Pityme at Rock, but the store still stands proud. Located right on the sea front, it is to-date the brand’s busiest outlet, aside of course from the clearance store at St Columb.

Dan Warden

Families can kit themselves out with apparel and choose from the full range of current wetsuits, boards and accessories, including top brands such as O’Neil, C Skins, Red Paddle, Rip Curl and Gul. And, as if this wasn’t enough, the brand aims to open another, new store in Polzeath by the end of the year, the intention being to solely stock hardware, including wetsuits, boards and accessories. In fact, the new outlet is set to become the biggest watersports emporium in Europe. The team promise to provide one-toone customer service and, when buying wetsuits, you can expect the staff to remain with you for as long as you need. While this can often result in up to an hour or even more being spent with one customer, the

team firmly believe that quality in service is far more important than making sales. The best thing is you’ll know you’re getting the best advice when it comes to buying surf gear as you see the staff jogging towards the beach, board in hand, to make the most of their lunch break. Life by the sea is at the centre of what Ann’s Cottage stands for, exemplified by the Ann’s Cottage owned brand, Cornish Getaways and some of the stunningly located properties they offer to those seeking the perfect seaside getaway. Having been completely refurbished in 2015 and boasting quite simply awesome panoramic views, Rigi is perched on the edge of the cliff at Polzeath and is a truly stunning location in which to spend your Cornish getaway. Fitted with solid oak bedroom furniture and a contemporary family bathroom, this cottage has its own direct access on to the beach path and is perfectly situated for all the village’s amenities. The cottage itself sits in ample grounds overlooking the bay, probably the most glorious view in Polzeath, especially with the 180-degree vista window enabling guests to take full advantage of the amazing sunsets out to sea whilst admiring the world famous surf on the break below. As well as Rigi, there is Yoho Cottage, situated in the heart of Polzeath and a stone’s throw from the beach. Yoho is a refurbished fisherman’s cottage, having been extended to sleep six over three bedrooms. One of five traditional cottages on the hill leading into Polzeath, this home has been arranged to maximise the views

from the front and back of the property. Outside, guests will find a large, split-level patio at the front, boasting spectacular sights over the village and beach. What’s more, leading off the dining area upstairs is a large, decked area giving glimpses of Pentire Point and out to sea. Conveniently, just a short walk from the property is parking for two cars as well as a larger car park. Guests staying in either of these properties, or indeed those pitching up on Tristram or Southwinds campsites which provide pitches and space for those with portable accommodation of all shapes and sizes, can enjoy fine dining in the Cracking Crab, the onsite eatery at Tristram as well as the Oystercatcher, the Waterfront restaurant and the Sand Bar, each offering a range of culinary delights for all tastes and budgets. What’s more, when the sun’s out, visitors can head to Cone Zone for refreshments including ice cream, coffee and pasties. So, if escaping to an area that’s famous in Cornwall for its outstanding beauty and access to all things seaside, pop into Ann’s Cottage Surf Shop, Polzeath, and get yourselves set for your next Cornish getaway.

Rock’s shining star John Bray Cornish Holidays explains why north Cornwall’s allure never seems to waver.

W

ildly surrounded by golden sands, crystal blue waters and the ever-popular destinations of Rock, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Port Isaac, it’s no wonder that visitors and investors alike continue to be smitten by Cornwall’s north coast. Local holiday letting expert John Bray Cornish Holidays has been based in Rock for over 40 years and has seen the area go from strength to strength. Alex Roads, Director at John Bray, believes that north Cornwall’s success comes down to its yearround appeal: “Cornwall holds so many great memories for generations of people. With a record number of visitors again this summer, it really is an investor’s dream.” This love affair has much to do with the stunning coastline, stretching from the sheltered Camel estuary and its unbeatable watersports such as sailing, water-skiing and surfing to the wild Atlantic, which has some of the best waves in the UK, coupled with Blue Flag beaches. Alongside the traditional bucket and spade holiday activities, visitors can also try seaweed foraging, paddleboard pilates or a tasting tour at award-winning vineyards. What’s more, with exceptional walks and world-class golfing, the area has also carved a niche for itself in recent times as a foodie haven, with more Michelin star chefs setting up shop than ever!

With the mild climate attracting people on holiday all year round, those who can get away outside of the peak season find themselves at a real advantage, with bonuses such as no queues on the M5, daily flights from London and major cities flying directly to Newquay as well as reduced prices for accommodation! The best part is that, as the demand for domestic holiday rentals increases, an exciting window of opportunity has opened for would-be investors looking to purchase an income-generating coastal retreat in the right area. John Bray Cornish Holidays is the north Cornwall specialist with over 290 holiday homes on its impressive books. The John Bray team are first to hear about sales opportunities, often before a property even reaches the market! Their comprehensive holiday letting and management service is designed to not only let the property, but to ensure that all of the day-to-day running is taken care of. So, if you’re looking for the perfect letting opportunity on the ever-popular north Cornish coast, give the team at John Bray Cornish Holidays a call.

Stay

Emphasising comfort and style with delicious cuisine, St Enodoc Hotel redefines the classic seaside stay.

C

ushy beds and uncompromising views of the Camel estuary: just two reasons to make a luxury escape at St Enodoc Hotel. With just 16 double rooms and four suites, never has a hotel of St Enodoc’s calibre felt so exclusive. Whilst many rooms boast sea views, all rooms are designed to ooze both comfort and practicality. Original paintings by celebrated Cornish artists Terry Frost, Jessica Cooper and Dave Pearce hang in the rooms which, decorated brightly, reflect the limitless beauty of the surrounding farmland and coasts. From the moment you pass through reception, you’re in capable hands. In fact, not only are the rooms stunning, the spa offers guests a classic day spa experience but without the rush and fuss of a flying visit. What’s more, as you would expect from a hotel that offers only the best, many of the available spa treatments are organic and make the most of skin-friendly ingredients. After a sumptuous spa session, follow the glorious smells wafting up from the kitchen. Headed up by Masterchef 2008 winner James Nathan, the food on offer here needs tasting to be believed. In fact, it may seem silly to head out for dinner once you know what’s waiting for you on the menu! To complement all of this, the local surroundings have so much and more for you to explore. Take a day trip to Port Isaac, where you may be lucky enough to catch the world-famous Fisherman’s Friends as they sing their shanties. Or, if 18 holes are your idea of taking a load off, St Enodoc Golf Course is always handy! The gardens – some of the most intriguing in England – are a real breath of fresh air when you finally bring yourself to leave the comfort of your room. And, surrounded by sandy beaches and coastal paths, St Enodoc is the ideal base from which to launch your discovery of the rich Cornish landscape. So, if a sleepy escape to St Enodoc Hotel with its spa, delectable cuisine, stunning surroundings and beds more comfortable than your own tickles your fancy, get in touch and book your Cornish break now.

Magical moments We catch up with the Latitude50 team to discover more about out-of-season breaks in north Cornwall.

Top 3

Looking for your Cornish home from home? Here are our top three picks for accommodation with Latitude50 for an out-of-season stay in north Cornwall: Stepping Stones - epitomising stylish coastal living, this stunning Polzeath property is just moments away from beaches and scenic coastal paths. Here, you’re well placed to enjoy the fantastic surf conditions at Polzeath. 1 Higher Farm - peace and quiet and convenience come hand in hand at this beautiful property located between Polzeath and Daymer Bay. Here you can easily make the most of beautiful empty beaches.

Little Barn - for cosy, country accommodation you can’t get better than Little Barn in the picturesque village of St Kew. This is the ideal base from which to explore Cornwall out of season.

C

ornwall is a truly unique holiday destination at any time of year. But when autumn arrives and the crowds depart, something very special awaits those planning an out-of-season trip to this magical county. The team at Latitude50 like to make the most of north Cornwall during this beautiful time of year. So we catch up with them to find out their favourite five out-of-season activities.

Explore the coastal paths Ranked amongst the world’s most aweinspiring walks by the Lonely Planet, the South West Coast Path spans the sheltered Camel estuary, sandy beaches, dramatic headlands and picture perfect harbours. We particularly love the 12-mile stretch from Port Isaac to Padstow.

Take to the water Stand up on it, dive into it, or paddle through it… However you enjoy the water, enjoy it to the full. Surrounded by some of the best surfing and watersports locations in Cornwall, you will be spoilt for choice. Make the most of the quiet waters with a surf lesson at Polzeath.

Enjoy a tranquil sundowner Sunsets this time of year are especially magical and filled with colour. Cornwall has a whole host of west-facing beaches and headlands; meaning that when you come to Cornwall you will be able to enjoy some of the most spectacular sunsets in the country.

Discover picturesque harbours There is something rather magical about exploring Cornwall’s picture perfect harbour towns and villages with the sound of seagulls above and boats bobbing below. Head to Port Isaac or neighbouring Port Gaverne and experience the best of fresh seafood at one of the traditional Cornish pubs.

Stepping Stones 1 Higher Farm Little Barn

Enjoy beaches to yourself This time of year you can be lucky enough to enjoy a walk on the beach with not a person in sight whether it’s an early morning walk with the dogs or a romantic sunset stroll. We recommend the lesser-known Greenaway Beach between Daymer Bay and Polzeath.

FISHING for fresh ideas Try the tempting new specialist seafood recipe boxes from inspiring Cornish company, Fish for Thought.

S Special offer

Use promo code ‘CORNWALL LIVING FFT’ to make your first order at www.fishforthought.co.uk and receive a 10% discount on your order as well as free delivery.

eptember was an exciting month for Paul Trudgian and his crew at Fish for Thought, packed with provenance, flavour and fresh ideas, with the Cornish online fishmongers at the heart of a campaign asking shoppers to ‘buy better, live better’. ‘Supermarket Siesta’ challenges Britain’s shoppers to switch part (or all) of their weekly shop, from the supermarkets to the artisan producers. September also saw Fish for Thought launch a UK first – specialist seafood recipe boxes. “Originally supplying a small band of loyal, local restaurants and hotels in Cornwall, we have grown and developed massively across the UK”, explains Paul. Fish for Thought now supplies a number of the country’s top hotels and restaurants including The Idle Rocks, The Scarlet and Union Street Cafe, part of the Gordon Ramsay Group. “Our aim is simple –

to bring you the finest fresh fish and seafood direct from Cornwall.” Paul continues: “We are committed to local, sustainable sourcing, working only with the best local fishermen and seafood suppliers. We guarantee everything we do and are confident you can’t get fresher fish unless you catch it yourself.” Weekly recipe boxes are becoming increasingly common delivering fresh produce to the door at the click of a button. Fish for Thought is trailblazing the way for anyone looking for the finest fish and seafood, as well as weekly recipe inspiration. “We set our talented Head Chef Adam the challenge to develop a range of meals that are healthy, quick and delicious, and make cooking seafood really easy.” Paul continues: “People are increasingly aware that they should be eating fish at least twice a week. Plus, people love eating fish in restaurants and would love to eat more at home, but cooking with seafood can be intimidating. We launched Fish for Thought TV, our YouTube channel, to break down barriers, give people fresh ideas and a better understanding of how to prepare the food they love. For the same reasons, it seemed like the perfect progression to add Seafood Recipe Boxes to our offering. Our dishes are easy to follow using the simple recipe cards or with our short films on Fish for Thought TV, it’s our way of connecting people with delicious fish in a way which is easy and convenient.” So, what’s Paul’s inspiration? “We love living and working in Cornwall, one of the world’s most beautiful locations, providing the absolute best thing from Cornwall to the rest of the UK… fish and seafood!”

A new season

Autumn is around the corner, and that means just one thing at Truro womenswear boutique Bishop Phillpott – new arrivals!

T

his season sees the same great mix of designer labels we have come to expect from this Truro stalwart, established in the city over 15 years ago. Paul Smith and Weekend by MaxMara are back with their collections focused on gorgeous knitwear, with some beautifully kitsch prints, as well as super stylish outerwear and some truly fabulous accessories. Cashmere favourites 360 Cashmere and Duffy NY also return, bringing their own design twists to high quality cashmere – the perfect combination to wear with Bishop Phillpott favourites JBrand and Donna Ida jeans. The autumn collection also sees the introduction of famed label Isabel de Pedro, the Spanish designer who has been dressing women around the world for over 40 years. De Pedro dresses the sophisticated and feminine woman in designs that flatter and fit perfectly. Based around a monochrome palette the designs incorporate beautiful shaping and understated style – whether that be dresses that look just as good layered under a coat with boots for a cold winters day as they would with heels and great accessories for an evening

occasion. This collection certainly adds a new twist to the pieces at Bishop Phillpott. With further labels including Italian brand Peserico, high-quality basics from American Vintage and stylish yet comfortable footwear from Italian shoemaker Candice Cooper, this season sees even more choice in fabulous fashion, right in the heart of Cornwall.

e all know a British summer almost always means some rainy days and if you’re camping in the great outdoors, the weather can be a real dampener. Avenay has the solution – the company’s amazing portable wood burning tent stoves are the perfect solution for soggy feet and damp spirits! Bring the outdoors indoors with a small space wood burner; whether you’re looking to kit out a garden yurt or a summer house, the Traveller and Fintan stoves from Anevay are the perfect way to stay warm on a summer camping trip or a chilly winter. These great little burners are designed for cooking as well

as heating and are easily portable so can be used on your camping trip as well as keeping your summer house warm. You can even use this stove in your van to stay warm on chilly surfing trips. So for a great trip no matter what the weather, always make sure you have a roomy canvas tent with enough space for all your kit. Canvas tents help regulate temperature so you won’t wake up baking in your sleeping bag if it’s a sunny day. A tent stove is an essential item for any camping trip. You can use it to dry wet clothes, make hot chocolate and snuggle up in the evening with a good book. Even a sunny day in the UK can mean a chilly night! For a happy family all round, always bring some hot chocolate and marshmallows for rounding off a glorious day spent outdoors. Ensure you have a pack of cards or a board game for entertaining on rubbish days to pass the time. It’s all about bringing the sense of adventure indoors, whether you’re cooking in a bell tent or your conservatory, so you don‘t need to rely on the weather to have a great time indoors.

s the summer holidays draw to a close and the kids return to school, we can’t help but let our minds wander and get lost in daydream about where our summer forays could take us next year. If, like many visitors to Cornwall, you like to round up the whole family and escape for a blissful week or two, you’ll know how crucial it is to get something booked well in advance – particularly for those school holidays. We catch up with the team at Perfect Stays to get the lowdown on what’s new to their collection of beautiful holiday homes, and what’s coming next year to get your holiday taste buds salivating.

Blue Elvin, Newlyn Amongst the rows of granite cottages and wooded hills sits this enormous, modernist-style holiday home.

The area of Newlyn and Penzance is a paradise for seafood aficionados with Newlyn boasting the biggest fishing fleet in the UK.

Court House, Padstow Court House is a truly unique property, occupying an enviable position on the waterfront of Padstow. Built in the late 1500s, this Grade II listed property is believed to be the second oldest home in Padstow and was at one time Sir Walter Raleigh’s Court House during his time as Warden of Cornwall. Having undergone a painstakingly delicate restoration process since early 2015, Court House is now opening its doors for guests of up to ten to stay in a piece of Padstow’s history. The interiors have been masterfully chosen piece by piece by Jam Interiors of Devon, and echo its grand past while providing a plush, regal retreat for holidaymakers to this popular harbour. The Court House will be available to rent for 2017.

Treasure House, Polzeath Treasure House embodies the soothing, mellow characteristics of a coastal inspired beach house, combined with the maturity and sophistication of a sumptuous retreat away from the city. Situated on the South West Coast Path, access to the beach is a mere minute’s walk. A very high spec throughout, this laidback home sleeps ten and boasts a wealth of green credentials, offering a roaring wood fire for those toasty winter evenings and Sonos wireless music system throughout to really set the ambience for your luxury getaway.

Marine Villa, Padstow Neighbour to Rick Stein’s iconic Seafood Restaurant, Marine Villa is a foodie’s dream holiday location. This fascinating home has a rich maritime history and is currently undergoing an enormous renovation project. The property will sleep 12 guests across an expansive floor plan, due for completion in summer 2017. A luxury self-catering property of this size is truly unique in Padstow, particularly in such a desirable location. Larger groups will appreciate the ability to rent Marine Villa and Court House to celebrate those milestone special occasions in one of the most sought-after locations in Cornwall.

Perfect Stays is continually expanding its portfolio of unique and exceptional holiday properties.

“Our challenge is to make the most of this spectacular setting and ensure that every visitor walks away with a new favourite beach, restaurant and venue!”

ot off the heels of a fabulous Cornish summer, you’ll find Tracey Griffiths and her team at Lusty Glaze Beach busily preparing themselves for what promises to be an exciting autumn and winter. Rather than winding down, the ultimate beachfront location will be packed full of parties, celebrations, weddings and some very special events. Lusty Glaze is a private beach located on the north Cornish coast, the last bay on the edge of Newquay as you head toward Watergate Bay on the Atlantic Highway. Already synonymous with wonderful food and famed for its esteemed sundowner sessions (previous headliners include Guy Garvey, Morcheeba and Newton Faulkner), Lusty Glaze’s reputation as an awesome, all-year-round venue grows yet further; the perfect venue for private parties and unique ticketed events. “Tucked away on the north Cornish coast and protected from the wind by dramatic horseshoe cliffs which frame a perfect sunset the beach, we’re blessed to have a natural venue for weddings, events and concerts”, explains Tracey, owner of Lusty Glaze Beach. “Our challenge is to make the most of this spectacular setting and ensure that every visitor walks away with a new favourite beach, restaurant and venue!” Every restaurant service, wedding and event is remarkable at Lusty Glaze by virtue of the changing tides, sunsets and surf which bless the beach every day. In October, the team will be hosting a candlelit

evening with operatic trio, Tenors Encore, an exclusive event with very limited tickets. Add to the mix Lusty’s brand new winter menu, weddings and intimate acoustic gigs – Woodburner Sessions – it has never been easier to say farewell to summer. Large scale cooperate events can also be hosted at Lusty Glaze, with businesses from across the country given the unique opportunity to hire the beach for actionpacked team events, surf and celebrations. What unites all of the visitor experiences together is Lusty’s team who work behind the scenes, to bring the detail, finesse and fun to every occasion. “This Christmas, we are hosting a number of fantastic, fun-themed Christmas parties for businesses across Cornwall and others further afield”, explains Tracey. “If you would like to fly your team from the city to Cornwall for an Australian-themed beach party this December, why not? Our role is to make it the best party you have been to! We love entertaining and have some really exciting private functions, winter weddings and events coming up that will be absolutely world class.” Keep up to date with all the party season plans, and find out more using the details below.

A clifftop paradise

With one of the finest locations in Cornwall, a stay at the Polurrian Bay Hotel is hard to beat.

P

erched on the cliffs amongst 12 acres of landscaped gardens, with south-facing views across Mounts Bay and the Atlantic Ocean on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, the Polurrian Bay Hotel is the ultimate family seaside hotel – it’s no wonder that it’s been chosen as one of The Sunday Times Ultimate 100 British Hotels. The original Polurrian Hotel dates back to 1890 and it was the first hotel on the Lizard Peninsula. Over the years the hotel has hosted a number of famous guests including the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi, who stayed at the original hotel in 1901 whilst conducting his experiments to send the first transatlantic

message in Morse Code from nearby Poldhu Beach across the Atlantic to St Johns, Newfoundland. The hotel was re-launched in July 2011, following an imaginative make-over of the public areas and bedrooms – think sofas that you can sink in to after a day’s exploring, a stunning Vista lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows and ‘to die for’ views and bedrooms that are fresh and contemporary, with a boutique seaside style. As with all Luxury Family Hotels, the ethos here is very much that parents shouldn’t have to compromise on quality just because they are travelling with children. The public areas are welcoming

and relaxed with plenty of space to spread out. Large low coffee tables make a great space for playing board games or colouring for the children who are always made to feel more than welcome. The Outdoor Play Zone gives adults and children alike the chance to enjoy some outdoor fun against the stunning backdrop of Mounts Bay – there’s always plenty to keep everyone entertained whatever the weather. Facilities include indoor and outdoor pools, pretty gardens, tennis court, spa treatments as well as a complimentary OFSTED registered Den for younger guests, that during school holidays holds movie nights, game nights, workshop events and outdoor games. There’s also the Blue Room for older children where they can absorb themselves in a favourite selection of video games, or perhaps challenge some of the other younger guests to more traditional pastimes such as a game of pool or table football. The hotel has a private beach, with public access, literally on the doorstep, with a little path snaking through the gardens down to the pristine sands of Polurrian Cove below – buckets, spades and crab lines are available to take down to the beach. Beyond the hotel, a wide range of sporting activities can be arranged from kayaking, coasteering and horse riding to surfing and golf. For days out there are rich pickings with pretty coves and gorgeous gardens all across the Lizard Peninsula.

Superb Cornish cuisine is a highlight at Polurrian, and the team was recently awarded an AA Rosette. Whether you opt for family or fine dining, the menus are based on ingredients sourced from local growers, artisan suppliers and of course the very freshest local seafood. Mealtimes are designed to make everything as easy as possible for families. Breakfast is very much a family affair. Even the youngest guests can help themselves to the buffet and pile their plates with cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and pastries. There is also a delicious choice of hot breakfasts, from Belgian waffles with berry compote to a full, traditional Cornish breakfast. Lunch is informal and relaxed. On balmy days dining tables spill out onto the terrace for al fresco meals and afternoon cream teas. Picnics are available if you want to go out exploring for the day. Children’s High Tea is available with the Den Team on-hand to help out, so you can relax and enjoy the view with aperitifs and nibbles. Or if you prefer to sit down for dinner together, there is a family dining option. There’s also a Sunday Breakfast Club where children are supervised giving parents the chance for a good lie-in – what a treat!

anking in the top ten beach destinations in Europe, St Ives has it all. Strolling around the town, visitors can browse the rows of boutique shops, eat pasties on the beach and take tips from the local surfers as they line up for some of the best waves in the south west. Indeed, many of us yearn for that summer break in St Ives, when the temperatures soar and the rich, inviting blue waters draw us in; when the ice cream soothes our dry throats as we peruse the local wares and idly watch the world go by. But what about low season? Immediately, the pros of heading south out of season include no queuing on the M5, cheaper parking and clear Cornish roads. What’s more, the accommodation in St Ives, being one of Cornwall’s premier destinations, becomes much more affordable during the autumn, winter and spring, meaning there are almost more reasons to come then than during the summer! With no crowds to get in your way, an out-of-season break offers you the best of this stunning coastal town without the

Fall in love with the beautiful Cornish countryside at Launcells Barton near Bude, a truly romantic location to celebrate your wedding.

S

teeped in history and set amidst spectacular wooded countryside, Launcells Barton is a family-owned, Grade II* listed manor house in Launcells, a small parish situated near Bude in north Cornwall. Combining lovingly restored historic buildings with a purpose-built events barn, owners Matthew and Lara fuse old world charm and contemporary design to create a sophisticated venue with timeless appeal. Matthew’s family have owned Launcells Barton since 1949. He grew up there, surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the sea. Life on the old dairy farm was idyllic. Years later, Matthew invited Lara to meet his family and experience the unique charm of his childhood home. With the property in desperate need of restoration and repair, he found himself apologising all the way to Cornwall, afraid that Lara might never warm to a place without central heating! Thankfully, his fears were unfounded; she immediately fell for the house, its myriad hallways, the grand exterior and the great sense of history contained within its walls. Having worked tirelessly to restore the house, Matthew and Lara excitedly ushered

With stunning indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, including the beautiful, 19th century converted stone mill barn, a gorgeous nearby church and grounds that are brimming with seasonal blooms, Launcells Barton is truly a magnificent wedding venue. For your reception, the team are busy building the events barn, which is due to be complete in April 2017. It will seat 200 and be equiped with an ultra modern fitted kitchen for your caterers. There will also be accommodation for 12, so the happy couple and friends or family can stay in style. As well as offering a flexible, fully bespoke service and exclusive use, Matthew and Lara are passionate about helping you create a truly memorable occasion against a stunning backdrop of characteristically Cornish scenery. Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding or a grand celebration, they’re confident you and your guests will love Launcells Barton just as much as they do.

From a grain of Sand The possibilities for using glass in any building development, or simply across the home, are endless thanks to UK Glass Centre.

I

t surrounds us and has become an integral part of our everyday lives and whether we choose to acknowledge it, glass is amongst the most commonly used building material in the world. With a history tracing back to the time of the Egyptians, glass has evolved into one of the most ubiquitous materials of the modern day. From a single windowpane in a humble garden shed to a precisely engineered glass slide on the side of a towering skyscraper, it seems the possibilities for using glass are endless. All this and yet glass still remains one of the most undervalued products of the modern age. More and more domestic and commercial consumers are embracing the potential of glass. Sculptural water features with a glacier-like appearance, transform an unassuming pond into a striking garden focal point. Framed and bespoke mirrors offer the illusion of space and depth both in the garden and the home. Frosted or patterned Opaletch® glass makes an excellent privacy panel or door and can also be used as shower or over bath screen complementing any bathroom. While glass shelves, which come in a variety of thickness and colour tint options, add practical, sophistication, balancing function and quality to any room.

The kitchen offers a fresh vibrant injection of colour, (virtually any colour in fact) with a no-nonsense, eye-catching glass splash back. The practical qualities outweigh those of traditional tiles, pairing functionality with dramatic flair and can make an impressive statement to define your personal style. Warming your toes next to a roaring wood burning fire is considered by many as the best thing about the cooler winter months. With ceramic fire glass doors and beautifully crafted glass hearths, cosy in the knowledge that damage limitation doesn’t have to come at the cost of elegance, winter just got a whole lot better. The expertise, knowledge and craftsmanship of its colleagues at UK Glass Centre means the Cornwall Glass and Glazing Group can provide an outstanding range of products and service. From technical advice on complex bespoke items to a simple bathroom shelf. So from a grain of sand comes something that for us is so much more than just a piece of glass!

Stay

Peninsula paradise Uncrowded beaches, outstanding eateries and wonderful places to stay: the Roseland Peninsula is a glorious holiday destination.

ordered by the Fal estuary to the west and the Atlantic to the east, the start of the Roseland Peninsula is a long-standing point of discussion between local historians and long-time inhabitants. Geography aside, one thing everyone can agree on is the beauty of the Roseland, the name of which derives from ‘ros’, the Celtic word for heath or gorse. Miles of spectacular, unspoiled coastline provide intriguing inlets, secluded coves and remote beaches to be explored. For those who like to be active, you can walk the South West Coast Path, cycle the Cornish Way, or sail the Carrick Roads and Falmouth bay. St Mawes village, at the end of the peninsula, is a hub for watersports enthusiasts; bring your own equipment or hire a boat, stand up paddleboard, canoe or kayak. If you’d rather sit back and relax, there are plenty of opportunities to watch the Roseland amble by with a boat trip. Enjoy a sea breeze on the St Mawes Ferry, which offers yearround connections to Falmouth: a 20-minute journey through the world-class scenery of the Carrick Roads, including two historic castles and, if you’re lucky, a glimpse of the marine life found in and around Falmouth bay. The King Harry Ferry links St Mawes and the Roseland with Feock, Truro and Falmouth, a crossing that has existed for over 500 years. During summer months, a small passenger ferry runs between St Mawes and the enchanting St Antony headland.

After taking in the sea or river air, head to one of the Roseland’s award-winning restaurants for a long lunch or relaxing dinner. Hotel Tresanton and The Idle Rocks, both in St Mawes, are two top-end, relaxed places to eat, drink and watch the world go by. The Driftwood, tucked away near the picture postcard fishing village of Portscatho, is the only restaurant on Cornwall’s south coast to have been awarded a Michelin star; the menu promises to awaken taste buds, incorporating only the freshest, locally-sourced seafood and finest, West Country meats. Or there’s the Kings Head, in Ruan Lanihorne, a country pub serving simple food, cooked well. On sunny days, try the Hidden Hut, which sits high above Porthcurnick beach and is rated the UK’s number one beach café. The only thing left is to find that perfect base for exploring all the Roseland has to offer. One of the oldest independent agencies in the area is Portscatho Holidays, with a large selection of waterside properties, contemporary homes and traditional country cottages situated all over the peninsula.

Health

Clean & gr�n Amanda Winwood discusses the real meaning of organic, the importance of family bonds, and coping with cancer.

A

s the first company in the UK to gain 100% organic certification across the whole range, the Spiezia team and I have been delighted to work with the Soil Association in the past few weeks to head up to London and talk to the press about what is truly organic. Did you know that any skincare product can label itself organic and need only contain 2% or less? There is no Government legislation to mitigate this. When you buy a Soil Association or COSMOS certified product you can be assured of no genetically modified ingredients (GMOs), no synthetic fragrances or colours, no product testing on animals, and no silicone oils or derivatives. There are many companies who play on the word organic or natural – look for certification to know that what you are getting is authentic.

This is dear to our hearts as we continue to really promote to spas that they should open their doors to people going through cancer. We have been welcoming people going through cancer and treatment for cancer for 15 years. This year, we have developed and launched a fully accredited and insured Cancer Touch Therapy™ training course thanks to Marc Innes who I have known for over eight years now. Una St Ives, our Made for Life Spa, recently welcomed someone who was having a break in her chemotherapy. She, her husband and their two young boys came in and found some peace and relaxation in the midst of what has been a really tough time for the family. A close bond had been formed by the end of their stay with the therapist team. We will be holding a Made for Life event at Una St Ives which includes full use of the facilities and a spa treat on Thursday 13th October – see the back page of this issue of Cornwall Living for more details and contact the lovely Juliette, our Made for Life Foundation Manager. October is Cancer awareness month. So if you know someone who needs some support, give them a hug, take time to go for a walk with them or go and take some time. Time is a precious gift.

Hugs from Amanda x
