Gorgeous wild flowersPhotograph of wild flowers above Vault beach near Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

Took an hour off and escaped for a walk above Vault beach near Gorran Haven and saw all these wonderful wild flowers.

Sue’s annual display

Every year Sue picks a bunch of Bluebells, Campions, Buttercups and “the white ones” for her traditional arrangement in this beautiful old jug.

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.

Mike & Sue would like to wish all of our guests, a happy and healthy 2015.
We were blessed with beautiful sunshine on Christmas Day and managed to get a couple of hours on Vault beach near Gorran Haven. Now the decorations are put away and we look forward to meeting and welcoming new and returning guests.

Spring bulbs

In October we planted loads of bulbs in pots, so guests that come to visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan, will be able to enjoy our small offering as they enter and leave the house.
