Friday 13th is considered an ‘unlucky’ day, although we aren’t particularly superstitious here at Gwel an Mor. Here are 13 reasons to feel lucky if you are on holiday in Cornwall this weekend.
1. There are hundreds of beautiful beaches to enjoy here in Cornwall. Get the sand between your toes and build a sandcastle with the little ones.
2. Here at Gwel an Mor you can meet and make friends with our animals at Feadon Farm. From foxes to birds of prey and everything in between you’ll be sure to be blown away. Cornwall also has a zoo, an aquarium and various other places to meet animals.
3. Cornwall is a firm foodie favourite. The county is host to some of the finest cuisine in the UK, with a focus on incredible seafood. Here at Gwel an Mor we have The Terrace Restaurant, offering Spanish inspired bistro dining with views of the sea.
4. You can really relax and unwind in Cornwall. Lie on the beach or find a quiet spot to read a book. If you are after a blissful break then Cornwall should be top of your list. You could always pamper yourself in The Wellbeing Spa.
5. As a rural location with sparse population near to the coast, Cornwall is a fantastic spot for stargazing. Relax at the end of the day with a drink in hand, in your own bubbling hot tub and look up into a starry night sky.
6. Refresh yourself in the sea. There is little more exhilarating than a dip in the sea, whether you are riding on the crest of a wave, just dipping a toe or padding across open water you cannot help but be invigorated by the coast.
7. Here in Cornwall there are numerous historic houses and beautiful gardens to visit. You’ll be able to explore National Trust properties such as Godolphin house, or English Heritage sites like Pendennis Castle.
9. At the end of a day in Cornwall you’ll be spoilt for choices when it comes to having a refreshing drink. There are numerous producers of cider, craft ale and wine in the county – with many stocked right here at The Terrace Restaurant.
10. Cornish Pasties. We don’t really need to say anything more do we?
11. Cornwall sits in the Gulf Stream (a warm part of the Atlantic Ocean) meaning that the temperature is just a couple of degrees warmer than elsewhere. Soak up the warmth and spot some of the exotic plants that only grow in South Cornwall.
12. Better still, head to the Eden Project. It’s world renowned with good reason and is a perfect way to spend a day.
13. Cream Teas. Much like point 10. Is there anything better than a fresh warm scone served with local Cornish Clotted cream and Strawberry jam? It’s doubtful.
