Cotehele Flower Garland

The flower Garland at Cotehele in the Great Hall is an annual event visitors have been enjoying since the 1950s – Throughout December the magnificent floral decoration (boasting 32,000 flowers!) will be on display. Moor 2 Sea holiday cottages are perfectly situated just inside Cornwall, to many National Trust houses and gardens: Lanhydrock, Cotehele, Anthony House, Mount Edgcumbe and Saltram are just a few you should visit. We’d love to add any photos of your favourite days out to our gallery page, so please feel free to email any you’d like included.

Remember to Light up your Life

Heligan organisers work tirelessly to provide enjoyable days out for the family all year round. These Illuminations – The Art of Illumination will certainly be festive visual feast! Prior to that event they are generously opening The Lost Gardens of Heligan for free on behalf of the Royal British Legion this Remembrance Sunday.

Spring Sunsets at Seaton

Hello Hello Hello

It’s been a long chilly winter but Moor2Sea Cornwall’s opening those patio doors, sweeping away the leaves and taking our breakfast al fresco.

Joe Enjoying a Dip

As a busy family it’s rare to have time in the mornings to take in the beautiful scenery that surrounds us. However, with Seaton beach a short drive away there’s no better way to unwind after a hectic day at work/school, than a stroll along the seafront. Not only for the fresh sea air and breathtaking sunset views, but also to let our crazy cocker spaniel run his little legs off.

Sunset Over the Rockpools

With a wealth of other beaches in close proximity, there’s no excuse not to take in that fresh Cornish air. Whether it’s for a quick 20 minute stroll or a longer ramble along the coastal path’s.
