  • 5 Tips for Summer in Cornwall 5 Tips for Summer in Cornwall

    The summer is well and truly here. We can’t believe it. We have had over a month of continuous sunshine and the met office expect it to last well into August. So far this has been the driest summer on record and it’s set to continue.

    Some may find the heat a little unbearable especially during the middle of the day when the sun is at it’s strongest.

    To help our guest make the most of their stay and enjoy the local attractions, we have put together hint’s and tips to help make your stay even more enjoyable.

    1. Eat Indoors or in Sheltered areas.

    It’s very tempting to eat outdoors in the sunshine this time of year. In fact, it’s one of the great pleasures of Cornwall to enjoy a Cornish Pasty while strolling around the local towns or cooling down with a Ice Cream during your visit to the beach.

    Keep an eye out for seagulls when you’re eating. When they see food they can be quite ferocious and can quite literally take it out of your hands. We recommend eating indoors or at minimum in a sheltered area to avoid being dive bombed.

    1. Take an umbrella.

    I know, this sounds a little unusual with the fact the weather is guaranteed to be lovely. An umbrella, while keeping you dry can also act as a sunshade and provide protection from the sun wherever you are. This is ideal if you are visiting somewhere where there is little shelter to cool down or you forgot your sun screen.

    1. Drink plenty of water

    With the heat of the day your body will be constantly trying to cool itself and in doing so becomes dehydrated. Take a drink of water with you wherever you go to ensure you stay well hydrated.

    1. Get there early

    Getting to your destination early in the day means you can enjoy your visit in the best way possible. Arriving early gives you a good chance of avoiding the crowds at popular attractions. It can become uncomfortable in the heat and being in a crowded environment doesn’t help. Arriving at St Ives early in the day means you can walk around having most of St Ives to yourself before the crowds arrive.

    Arriving early also means you can enjoy the cooler parts of the day. The hottest time of the day is between 12pm and 3pm where we recommend staying indoors or finding a sheltered area.

    1. Suncream

    If we could offer only one piece of advice, wear sunscreen would be it. The baking sun can be very damaging to skin, especially in youngsters. Combined with the cool sea breeze we get, it can be extremely easy to get sun burned.

    Please check with your local healthcare for help and advice with choosing the right suncream for you.


    The Penellen Bed and Breakfast is located at the heart of Cornwall and enjoys excellent sea view across St Ives Bay and St Ives Town. We do everything we can to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. Give our us a call on 01736 753777 for any enquiries or book online today!

  • Making the most of the Summer. Making the most of the Summer.

    Finally! The Sun has made an appearance and what a show. The last few weeks have been absolutely fantastic, dry, warm and continuous. This summer has proven to be one of the driest on record with the heatwave expected to last until late August.

    The guaranteed dry weather has seen Cornwall come alive with activity with holiday makers making the most of the summer sun and the guaranteed dry weather.

    All of the Cornish attractions are now in FULL swing with events on every day of the summer.

    The Eden Project is now in full bloom with the gardens being full of colour. The fragrant lavender field is in bloom where visitors can enjoy the beautiful colours and unsurpassed scent evocative of high summer. The great weather is attributed to an excellent season for all of the beautiful plants and flower making July and August one of the best times to visit the Eden Project this year.

    If the heat is not your thing, Paradise Parks Dinosaur Quiz is an excellent option with fun for all the family. Meet the penguins and other animals during your visit with shaded areas throughout the park. The excellent café will also keep you refreshed during your visit.

    With the excellent weather we are seeing, families are heading to the beaches throughout Cornwall. The Penellen Bed and Breakfast is located just 50 yards from the beach offering over 3 miles of Golden Sands and beautiful views.

    Hayle beach is a gem of Cornwall with over 3 miles of golden sands stitching from Hayle to Godrevy along the heritage coast.

    Excellent sunsets are almost guaranteed and the view overlooking Godrevy Lighthouse at Sunset is a spectacle to behold. The romantic, warm and beautiful sunsets must be experienced. A blanket and a little food for a picnic is an excellent way to spend an evening.

    St Ives town comes into it’s own with this beautiful weather. The harbour colours look fantastic at this time of year with golden sands at low tide and beautiful blues at high tide, a spectacle to behold and one of St Ives many attractions.


    The Penellen Bed and Breakfast is located in the Cornish town of Hayle just yards from the beach with excellent access to the rest of Cornwall via the nearby A30.
