Another rainy day in Cornwall? A trip to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
The last time I was here – seems like a zillion years ago – with a different bored 5 year old who now doesn’t do museums, I remember loving it.
His younger brother has more attitude at 5 and said, a little scornfully, that he’d prefer the cinema.
‘It’s going to be fun,’ I said. ‘There’s loads of boats, you know, kind of pirate-y.’ read more

Hotel Tresanton, Cornwall
When Olga Polizzi opened the Hotel Tresanton in a former yacht club back in 1998 she pretty much set the benchmark for boutique hotels everywhere.
After all, what could be nicer than waking in one of the nautical chic bedrooms which all face onto St Mawes Bay or dining at night by candlelight on the open air terrace? Hotel Tresanton is a place of quietly lavish, pared down cool, whether you’re sipping a perfectly made Bloody Mary in the bar (with its own highly secret recipe) or playing backgammon (and coveting the furniture) in the beautiful sitting room. Food is a high point with local ingredients and the freshest fish and breakfasts are legendary (smoked haddock and gruyere omelette anyone?) Popular with families Tresanton has a playroom with toys and DVDs etc, for older children there’s fishing, kayaking and sailing – right outside the door. New to the hotel is Rock Cottage with family room, kitchen, suite and 2 balconies. The hotel also offers beauty treatments, a cinema and 48ft yacht for private charter. read more
Well let’s just start with wow, basically, because this place is truly awesome. A barn and cottage which together sleep 22 Tregulland is so stylish and seriously luxed up you’ll find it impossible to leave. read more
Celtic & Co is a company which typifies the Cornish Dream. Originally started up in the 1970s to sell warm sheepskin boots to surfers it was still a tiny company when Nick and Kath Whitworth bought it in 1990 as a means of living and working in Cornwall. read more
Loving the new look Fifteen Cornwall at Watergate Bay which combines those stellar views with a sleek white interior and a curved anti-pasti bar to satisfy any random cravings for ice cold wine and chargrilled squid.
The vibe and philosophy of this hip Cornish eaterie remains the same – local produce given an Italian spin, cooked by Jamie’s latest team of apprentice chefs. Inside the restaurant the shocking pink has gone, replaced by a more pared-down neutral style offsetting those knock-out panoramic views. read more
Mussel lovers should head to Rick Stein’s pub The Cornish Arms in St Merryn next weekend. There’ll be a a variety of Cornish and British beers on offer – including our favourite, the brilliantly named Proper Job, and Stein’s own brews Chalky’s Bark and Chalkey’s Bite. Freshly cooked Cornish mussels will be in ready supply with recipes chosen to compliment the beers such as Moules Marinière, La Mouclade and mussels with beer and bacon. read more
Beach huts at St Moritz by Chris Potter
Leaving the St Moritz Hotel on a cold, rain-lashed February morning was even harder than I’d anticipated.
The day before this art-deco inspired hotel which overlooks the Camel Estuary on the North Cornwall coast had shone out, a beacon of warmth and quiet luxury. read more
