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.

If you’re thinking of returning, or visiting for the first time, now is a good time to plan your holiday in this lovely part of Cornwall, which has so much to offer, from the first Spring flowers, to lovely Summer beaches, cliff walking and lots more. We already have bookings for June, July and August, with one family returning for their fifth time, we’re looking forward to the season and welcoming both old and new friends.

Robin forms part of the welcoming partyPhotograph of a robin perched on a black & white decoy duck at Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

During the summer, whilst tidying the garden, we have noticed a very confident Robin. At the weekend, when we welcomed back Ray & Sheila from London, Robin came onto the patio to join in with the tea and cake, our guests were absolutely enthralled and took some lovely close up photographs.

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.

How lucky we werePhotograph of Primroses in the steps at Valley Cottage B&B Portmellon

We thoroughly enjoyed the Easter break, great weather,  lovely guests and congratulations to Mark & Lydia who got engaged whilst they stayed in our Garden Room.

 Primroses are wonderful

The primroses this year are just gorgeous, we even have some self seeded ones growing in the steps as you walk up to the house.
