Sunset of summer days but Autumn breaks ahead

The lingering sunsets of late summer

What could be a more perfect end to the day than a vibrant sunset. I walked up to the top one of our  fields for a different view of the bay at Ednovean Farm last night and I was rewarded with a view of the tide rippling across the rocks of Mounts Bay. So  far below me and off to my right in Marazion on a warm still evening. September has delivered the sort of weather that you tend to remember on childhood holidays when you were giddily allowed to stay up a little bit later than usual. Those holidays in Cornwall that started in the dead of night as a child sleeping on the back seat of a car on roads that wound for hours to a chorus of "Are we there yet!" The thrill of the first mesmerising glimpse of the sea of Cornwall that always draws you back to relive childhood holidays and ponder the sunset at the end of a warm September day.

A perfect end to the day in Cornwall

Visit our august garden

Did you find my August garden update at the new wordpress blog? Do pop along and have a look and catch up with the Ednovean gardens after this beautiful summer. I've also included a few suggestions of the best gardens to visit this month within easy reach of us in West Cornwall.

Autumn breaks and winter holidays

As Summer is slipping away from little by little and the spring bulbs are appearing in the shops I thought it was time to put our popular Autumn /Winter three day special breaks together - Aptly named Winter beaters and storm chaser!  Just go to the  reservations tab on our new website and select your three day break from October onwards and you will find a £10 reduction for each night when you complete your reservation. Or of course phone we love to hear from you - it is surprising how many guests we meet again after a number of years as their lives have taken in other directions away from Cornwall!
