Eat, drink & be cosy
Days are downright chilly, breath visible as you leave the hotel and cheeks pinched red. Escaping to warmth becomes all the more appealing. Thankfully, Cornwall excels when it comes to cosy foodie spots that tick all the right boxes.
Even in the middle of winter you are guaranteed a warm welcome from the laid-back bunch at the Camel Valley vineyard, so don’t fret about snobbery if you’re not a wine connoisseur. Take a tour, discover the winemaking methods and taste-test the vinos, including the team’s most famous label: Cornwall Brut. And if you’d prefer to skip the tour, you can simply relax with a glass of wine on the terrace, taking in views of the countryside.
Get a true taste of Cornwall
It goes without saying that no visit to Cornwall is complete without eating a cornish pasty. It’s a hot topic for both locals and visitors to the duchy… Where can the best pasties be found in Cornwall? Those who regularly eat cornish pasties will likely have some strong opinions about where to go, and for those visiting, we urge you to do your own taste-testing! From Rowe’s to Choak’s which has been satisfying the cravings of the people in Falmouth since 1948, we want to know who you think is best too.
Brewing the likes of Rattler and Healey’s Cornish juices, Healey’s Cyder Farm is the biggest cyder-maker in Cornwall. At Healey’s HQ, fruity preserves simmer in the jam kitchen, England’s oldest whisky ages in the cellars, and a range of well-known cyders are produced in the press house. You can take guided tours of the farm, cellars and huge orchard, before taste-testing the full range of products.
