Wadebridge (5 minutes drive) is our local market town and has plenty of original, independent shops selling unique gifts. Friday 3rd December is late night shopping and there will be all sorts of things going on.

Padstow (20 minutes drive) has beautiful Christmas lights in the harbour (switch on 6pm 4th December) as well as lots of shopping opportunities. ”Nadelik Lowen” (Merry Christmas in Cornish) takes place from 2pm on 4th December and there will be plenty to see & do around the harbour.


Lostwithiel (30 minutes drive) is one of the most vibrant communities in Cornwall. Famous for it’s antique shops there are also lots of small, independent stores too. Late night shopping is every Thursday throughout December.

Having exhausted Lostwithiel you can either walk (via the Restormel Walking Trail – 40 minutes), or drive (6 minutes) to the beautiful Duchy Nursery. Christmas shopping and Supper evenings will be held on 2nd/3rd & 9th/10th December.


For a day out further afield, St Ives (40 minutes drive) has lots of Christmas events planned, including a lantern parade and farmers markets. There is a great shop in the Tate St Ives as well as many small, unique stores around the town.

You could then drive over to Penzance (20 minutes from St Ives) and add a Christmas dip in Jubilee Pool‘s geothermal outdoor pool, as well as a walk through the town and along the promenade. The Penzance Town Market is held every Friday from 9am-1pm.
