Had such a fun time here in Puddleduck Cottage. It was really fun. Love the garden and the stream by the river. Thank you soooo much. Fantastic cottage, love Lady’s Maid. The pub is fantastic and river is good fun, but watch the tide time! Polkerris Beach is great if you want to take some boats out. Little Lantic was our favourite but not for little people. Most of the time we just walked... breathtaking.[AUGUST 2012]

"Thanks! Puddleduck Cottage has been very much “home” from the moment we arrived to the moment we’ll leave. Well-appointed, thoughtful, homely and WARM! Maybe we’ll use the boat next time........and count the ducks!" [February 2010]
"Last minute booking – 9pm the night before arriving! Supposed to be flying to Gran Canaria but all flights cancelled due to Icelandic volcano – but who needs the Canaries when we have this lovely place. Plus the sun is shining! What a lovely comfy place Puddleduck is. Lots of good walks, handy for Heligan & Eden Project. The pub is a bonus too. Very pleased this was available – lucky us!" [April 2010]
"There were 5 in our party and we all thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. It was very well cleaned with an excellent kitchen, very well equipped with everything, and nice to be welcomed with tea & biscuits, we felt it was very much home from home. The area is beautiful with lots of walks, and the shop has a good range of food. I have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful cottage & hope to return." [May 2010]
"We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Puddleduck and Lerryn. A really well equipped cottage, making it home from home. Plenty of room for the whole family. Everyone around here is so pleasant & courteous. Lerryn is just a piece of paradise. Especially loved the boat “Lady’s Maid”. We’ll come again if we can." [June 2010]
"Our second visit to Puddleduck. We all enjoyed a lovely week staying here. Instead of driving around a lot whilst here, we used the train twice – to Newquay and St Ives. Both were pleasant experiences – no trying to find a car space; no scenic but narrow lanes to navigate and very cheap fares, as 4 adults we were charged a group fare. Walked to St Winnow and enjoyed a lovely cream tea & bacon roll from Angie’s! Do hope we return." [July 2010]
"We had lots of fun here. The location is great and we recommend the pub. We love it here." [August 2010]

"Had a truly fantastic time in a ‘Land that time forgot’! Many thanks." [October 2010]

"Obby Oss" day in Padstow - 1st May
(Traditionally held on the 1st except when that falls on a Sunday. Festivities are then held on Monday the 2nd)
Padstow is famous for its May Day festivities when the Obby Oss is traditionally released from its stable to welcome in Spring and may even be an ancient fertility festival.
Flora Day, Helston - 8th May
(Traditionally held every year on May 8th except when this date falls on a Sunday or Monday. Then it is held on the preceding Saturday.)
The town is decked out with bluebells, gorse and laurel leaves gathered from the surrounding countryside. Dancing begins at 7.00am with gentlemen wearing shirts and ties and the ladies in light summer dresses. Not long after the Hal-an-Tow, a boisterous mummers' play featuring scenes of St George slaying the Dragon begins, cheered on by a crowd dressed in Lincoln green and Elizabethan robes. The children of the town dance at 10.00am wearing flowers an lily of the valley and at midday the formal dance of the day begins with men wearing morning dress and the ladies decked out in magnificent ball gowns and hats that could be the envy of Ascot. To round off the day of dancing, the Evening Dance starts from the Guildhall at 5pm. Taking part in the dancing is by invitation only, by applying to the Flora Day Association.
You'll probably have to park outside the town and walk in as thousands of visitors pack the streets all day to watch the dances. During the day the main street and down towards the boating lake buzzes with many stalls selling local souvenirs, Cornish crafts, food and a big fairground. There is a carnival atmosphere from dawn to well into the night.
