Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove is the perfect place for getting in the festive spirit, the Cornish way.

Let Christmas be-gin with Etherington’s

Planning ahead for the festive season? If so, be sure to check out Etherington’s Farm Shop near Scorrier. Part of the Brian Etherington Meat Company – which has been providing Cornwall quality meats since 1954 – the Farm Shop is home to everything you need to make Christmas special this year. You’ll find a comprehensive range of cheeses and charcuterie, local meats such as turkeys, gammons and rare-breed beef as well as sweet treats, wines, beers and, of course, bubbles.

There’s also a range of bespoke Christmas hampers, featuring classic favourites of jams, cheeses and chutneys.

However, it’s the shop’s new ‘Ginglebells Hamper’ which has us excited. Featuring the very best of Cornwall’s gins and tonics, as well as delicious Buttermilk fudge infused with Tarquin’s Gin, it’s the ultimate gift for gin lovers.

Even more reasons to spend time at The Croust Hut

Having only opened earlier this year, it’s already established itself as a fantastic year-round stop, whether you fancy coffee and cake or a hearty, sit-down meal. The establishment is located next to the fascinating King Edward Mine Museum (open seasonally) which  makes it a great spot for a family day out, whatever the weather. In addition to all of this, The Croust Hut team tells us: “We’re now serving Sunday roasts! Available every Sunday from 12pm, we use only the freshest local produce, so booking is highly recommended!” So, why not spend a Sunday exploring the stunning local scenery famous for its mining heritage, before enjoying a Croust Hut roast with all the trimmings, and none of the dishes?
