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.

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.

This year there’s no doubt Cornwall’s leading the way when it comes to food festivals and fine dinning in the UK. The combination of breath-taking scenery and fresh local produce from surrounding farms and fishing ports make’s it a haven for those wanting a new experience without having to travel abroad. This has also led to an influx of celebrity chefs opening restaurants nearby, not that i like to name drop but…Rick Stein’s ‘The Seafood Restaurant‘ in Padstow, Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen‘ in Watergate Bay and Nathan Outlaw’s ‘Fish Kitchen‘ in Port Isaac.

In the name of market research i obviously had to try them all out for myself with family and friends, and i can honestly say that these restaurants have created some mouthwatering dishes, set in beautiful locations, and left me with some wonderful memories of sunny summer evenings in Cornwall.

Just fancy a nibble?

Then how about a trip to Truro where you sample some of the finest food Cornwall has to offer, at the Great Cornish Food Festival on the 23rd – 25th September.

Or maybe a little indulgence?

Falmouth Oyster Festival 8th-11th October may be more your style.

 

With a younger family in mind, alfresco dinning is always a holiday must, and one of life’s simple pleasures.  So why not pack a Perfect Pasty Picnic, gather the family and head off to one of Cornwalls open air theatres like Sterts or the delightful Garden Theatre of Pentillie Castle and rediscover the pleasure of a picnic.

For more ideas and suggestions of local restaurants and Cornish Produce outlets take a look at our dinning out page.

Blooming Marvellous Flowers in Cornwall

Blooming Marvellous Flowers in Cornwall

 

Summer has finally arrived at Moor2Sea Cornwall!

 

Two weeks of uninterrupted sun meant the BBQ’s were working overtime, drinks were flowing and the ice-cream draw was emptied. With temperatures hotter than LA, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before the rich and famous descend to Costa del Tideford to soak up some summer rays.

We may currently be experiencing a drizzly spell but I’m staying positive and looking at the sliver lining…the Moor2Sea Cornwall gardens! The combination of warmth and summer showers has meant the flora and fauna nestled sleepily in the hedgerows has burst into colour and tripled in size. The country lanes and coastal paths surrounding Moor2Sea Cornwall are a riot of colour. The fields have a look of Monet about them, with delicate blue Flax flowers and sunshine yellow blooms of Rapeseed.

A walk with Joe, our Cocker Spaniel, in the early morning sunshine is a delight. With a wide variety of flowers and endless fields for us both to explore the routine speed-walk, that often takes 15 minutes, has begun to take considerably longer, with us often discovering new paths and trails along the way.

Keeping on top of the garden and lawns has also been a decidedly longer process than expected. All be it a very pleasurable one. The cottage gardens are in full bloom moving from the Snowdrops and Bluebells of May, to the sweet smelling Jasmin, Rosemary and Lavender of June. On the flip side the grass just keeps on growing, and growing, and growing…thankfully Phil’s assigned to that job, so that’s one less thing i have to worry about! Or is it?
