Photograph of Portmellon Cove near Valley Cottage B&B PortmellonEaster has passed with it’s inclement weather and we are now looking forward to blue skies and sunshine!

What a great time to come and explore the deserted beaches and glorious coastal walking before it gets too busy.

 

The famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and lesser known Caerhays Castle are both within a few miles and will soon be full of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, so come on down for a visit.

Gorgeous, Talented and Cornish! (Ed’s not bad either)Picture of bunting in the harbour textile art print by Cat Rowe

Last weekend textile artist Cat Rowe from Redruth returned to stay with us, booked for 3 nights and stayed for 4 . We told them where the quietest beaches were, blessed with good weather, they relaxed and returned every day with beach treasure, inspiration for her coastal art.

 

This is just one example of her fabulous pictures, prints and cards. Check Cat out at:-www.textileillustration.co.uk

Our new paintingPhoto of painting  & sculptures at Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

Went to the intimate Flying Colours exhibition by local artists at Gorran Haven, we were really tempted by three paintings from local artist Julia Clough, but chose this one because it sums up everything we love about Cornwall. For more information about Julia, see her Facebook page: Julia Clough Artist Cornwall.
