Three reasons why you need to book your summer holiday in Cornwall

23rd April 2019

Have you booked your summer staycation yet?

Here’s three reasons why you need to plan your next holiday in the heart of the Cornish countryside…

Up-and-coming foodie destination

Did you know that Cornwall is becoming more and more well-known for its food, as well as its beaches? With top chefs flocking to the Duchy, it’s no wonder that more tourists are visiting for the menus too.

Here at The Plume, Chef Patron Nat Tallents, previously a contestant on BBC Masterchef: The Professionals, heads up the kitchen – and it’s her passion for making the most of fresh, quality produce that means our restaurant has established a reputation as one of the best in the area.

Enjoy a host of signature dishes inspired by locally-sourced ingredients (including from The Plume’s own kitchen garden and bees), with a menu that celebrates Cornish heritage.

Exploring the great outdoors

From surfing and kayaking to hiking the stunning South West Coast Path, Cornwall is an outdoor-adventurer’s wonderland – and it doesn’t even matter if it’s raining (this is still England, after all).

Over recent years, Cornwall has fast become the UK’s outdoor hotspot, with opportunities to try almost any water sport out there, as well as miles of stunning woodland walks and picturesque cycle routes on our doorstep.

With the dramatic cliffs on the north coast and the more gentle, sloping scenes on the south, there’s something for everyone within short driving distance of The Plume.

If you’re staying with us, we won’t judge if you just want to spend the day in bed, though, feasting on our delicious menu and making the most of our freestanding baths.

Myths and Legends

From mermaids and piskies to giants and ghosts, Cornwall has its fair share of myths and legends (and you’ll even find them in the most unlikely of places).

Delve into the exciting past of the Cornish landscape by exploring ancient woodland, shipwrecks and historic landmarks across the region via a number of walking routes, or visit our local museums – did you know you’re never more than seven miles from a museum in Cornwall?

Whether you’re interested in hearing the tales of Merlin in Tintagel or want to find out more about Jack the Giant Killer on St Michael’s Mount, The Plume is the ideal base (just two minutes from the A30) to make the most of Cornwall.
