So, I suppose the first thing to do is to wish you a very “Pask Lowen”, which is Cornish for Happy Easter. Hopefully you will get lots of “Oys Pask”, yes, you guessed it, Easter Eggs!
Many Cornish Beaches have seasonal restrictions banning dogs, usually from Easter Day or March until 1st October, with signs like the one below at the entrance to the beach. Some ban during the day but allow dogs in the early morning (before 7 or 8 depending) and late evening (usually after 7) - the sign will specify. And most beaches are dog friendly out of season.
Winter in Cornwall is pretty good. It’s a quieter time to year to enjoy all this part of the world has to offer: sun, sea, sand, scallops and Santa! Here are some of our recommendations, in no particular order…
Then it was time to dash back for the 4pm re-opening of the rainforest biome for the “show”… Eden’s website describes this new event as a “Walk Through the Enchanted Rainforest: A Theatre of Christmas Memories: a unique combination of live performance, installations, soundscapes and beautiful lighting brought to you by our talented friends at WildWorks theatre company”. Going in at twilight to explore as it gradually gets darker is truly magical (the darker the better) and a unique experience, to be highly recommended.
This visit was in 2014.
In Cornish, Allantide is “Kalan Gwav”, meaning first day of winter, centres around juicy red apples. People gave big, shiny (highly polished) red apples to friends and family to bring good luck. Local Allan apple markets were commonly held before the big day.

On 27th July 2016, Matt Smith, aged 30, made a world record bid. Born in New Zealand from a long line of sheep shearers (his brothers are also champion shearers), he now is based just up the road from Coombe Farm. This epic effort, was the first attempt of it’s type in the Northern Hemisphere.
The castle is a magical day out. Everyone has heard of Tintagel Castle, and it’s mythical links to King Arthur. It’s cliff top location is dramatic, and spans from the mainland out to the Island, and includes Merlin’s Cave down at the foot of the cliffs. This unique castle brings the past to life, and also combines striking views, captivating ruins and a yummy seaside café.
So, after careful (and sad) review of the inventory in light of recent events, this is what the cottages now contain. We have put this list together to help guests with what they do and don’t need to pack. Do get in touch if you have any questions.
