Our top tips for places to go crabbing in and around Falmouth. Grab a bucket and line and visit one of the local butchers to grab some bait!

1. The Harbour! There are many quays in Falmouth with perfect spots for doing a bit of crabbing. (Photographed above)

2. The Pandora Inn at Mylor, enjoy delicious food on the pontoon and you can crab while you wait! Crabbing lines and bait are sold inside.

3. Castle Beach, get your hands dirty at low tide and enjoy some rock pooling.

4. Flushing Quay, enjoy the views of Falmouth from Flushing.

5. Mylor Quay, the perfect spot for sitting and relaxing by the quay.

 

Best Bait Tip: Visit one of the local butchers and try and get an old ham bone. The crabs love it, although you may need a larger net!

New Kitchen at Carvinack

April 20, 2014 No Comments

Carvinack Cottage - Mylor - Holiday Cottage - Cornwall - Kitchen DiningLast week I went down to Carvinack Cottage to photograph it’s brand new kitchen and shower. It was a beautiful day and I was greeted by the neighbours chickens who are very tame. The blossom was out and the cottage garden was looking vibrantly green. The kitchen has undergone a huge transformation and looks brilliant, with brand new oven and hob and kitchen units.

Carvinack is surrounded by the Enys Estate and is perfect for a relaxing break. Walking distance from Mylor, Penryn or Flushing and a short drive from Falmouth.
