We love our guests

Our job is great.  It is officially great.  This week Judith is away so I (Heidi, Judith’s daughter in law) have been promoted again to chief animal person, which is a huge responsibility but with it comes the great pleasure of meeting so many wonderful guests.  We have a great crowd in this week with many egg collecting volunteers.  Today we even watched Alice the Sheltand Pony have her hair cut.  Today has been made even better by one of our guests bringing us back some mackerel and whiting from their fishing trip – I can’t tell you how excited I am about cooking them tomorrow.

I have been speaking to guests in the mornings about what they are up to and where they are visiting so here are some ideas about how can you get the most out of Cornwall?. Firstly, we are always here to help,  we can point in the direction that you are thinking of heading – even look up things such as whether the Mevagissey to Fowey Ferry is running or as proper locals, give you directions which your Sat Nav might miss!

You might like to consider planning your stay a little and booking things in advance to save some pennies. For example you can book Eden Project tickets here and save nearly £10 per ticket.  Or if you are thinking about visiting some of Cornwall’s stunning gardens pick up a Great Gardens of Cornwall leaflet in the games room. You pay full price with the leaflet at your first visit then after that you get discounted rates at all other featured gardens.  As Eden is the most expensive visit one of the other gardens then head there to enjoy a discounted rate!

A number of places offer a 7 day ticket once you have visited one, such at Newquay ZooKidworldSpringfield Fun Park and Pony Centre or an annual past if you Gift Aid at The Maratime Museum in Falmouth or The Eden Project.
