Spring has come very early this year to our sheltered little corner of Cornwall. The early rhodos are in full bloom, the snowdrops are out and so are even the early primroses . It's a wonderful sight in the garden at Carnethic House and in the hedgerows along the lane down to Readymoney Cove.
January - February
Fowey is quite quiet in January but as soon as February comes, it springs into life again. Half Term is early this year ; one week is taken but we still have some availability. It's great to go on one of our many walks, come back for a swim and sauna and then curl up in front of the log fire with a favourite book or DVD -- bliss !
Spring really gets underway in March with azaleas and camellias and rhodos looking so exotic in the famous Cornish valley gardens. This is my favourite time of year to visit our wonderful gardens with Heligan and Llanhydrock [ open every day in winter with the restaurant daily from the beginning of February ] being on our doorstep and Trelissick and Trebar an easy drive. April, May and June are also wonderful months for garden visits and walks along the coastal paths that can even be reached on foot from the garden at Carnethic. I've done a Walks sheet taking our garden as the starting point -- we often leave the car on the drive for days on end, walk everywhere and buy all we need at the excellent local Fowey shops.
Summer means beach, boats, lazy days by the pool -- and the Fowey Regatta ! Not to be missed especially the fireworks !
Life quietens down to mellow fruitfulness in Autumn -- with a gentleness and warmth we love.
Hope you like this little snapshot of the year at The Garden, Carnethic House -- come and enjoy it too.

Visitors to Fowey over Bank Holiday woke up to this stunning view on Monday. At first we thought we might still be dreaming (due to a fairly detailed study of the cocktail list at Sam's top floor bar the night before), but sure enough, there it was, The Black Watch in all her regal splendour and imposing elan. What a sight!
No doubt she'll be featuring on postcards of Fowey soon...who knows, perhaps one of our Cornish Hols guests at Carnethic House will pin her up on our Note with a Boat gallery.
www.cornishhols.com is the new website for our luxury self-catering apartment, The Garden at Carnethic House.
Please stay and have a browse through the website...then come and stay in Fowey! We're sure you'll love it as much as we do. Everyone else does, as you'll see from the lovely things they say.
Our Cornish holiday apartment is the perfect escape at any time of year. Even this August with the heavens opening our guests haven't been disappointed, there's always so much to do and see. And if you can't gather the energy to go out of the front door, then don't. Just take one of the doors out on to the balcony, down the steps into the garden, through the little gate under the flower arch and into the relaxing warm atmosphere of the heated pool, sauna and hot tub.
It really is the perfect escape - come and enjoy it for yourselves.
