Our Top Cornwall Events in Summer 2017
After a recent stay at our Fowey Hall Hotel, Hermione Norris, star of ITV’s Cold Feet, said: ‘When I was young it was Cornwall, Wales and Devon for family holidays… A week in the UK with sandy sandwiches, building dens, free entertainment with a bucket and spade, Cornish pasties and family chaos. It was a lovely, wholesome experience. And I want that for my own children.’
Indeed, there’s a vast amount to do in our Cornwall hotels and on their doorstep. But Fowey Hall and the Polurrian Bay Hotel also provide great bases for families to enjoy the annual events that the region does so well. Here are some of our top choices this year.
