Its even been chilly in Cornwall!


The past week has been a very strange one for Cornwall, for one main reason, we had snow! Not only did we have snow but it lasted for more than a few hours, and even a few days! But enough of that, as all we have heard about for the last week is snow snow snow.....

The phones and emails have been going mad this week, perhaps as others are at home and bored we've been busy helping people arrange their holidays for later in the year. 

So after a rather busy week I was relieved when the weekend came and the surf had arrived. It was a bit colder than usual, with the puddles on the beach frozen and the car park white, but for the 6 of us out there it was well worth it.

St Ives Bakery were my saviors of the day as my pasty was piping hot and defrosted me thoroughly! A pint by an open fire in a pub in St Agnes (St Agnes Hotel) was also a welcome addition to the day, and thanks to the landlord, home made nibbles were handed around.

The surf this week is looking mixed with some potentially good days as a new swell arrives but the winds are looking very variable. So have to watch it closely to make the most of it. 

At The Sail Lofts we have some fantastic deals on last minute breaks for January, with up to 50% off some apartments, see here for more details.

We are also offering 20% off all breaks before the 11th February on all apartments.

For those of you considering getting away during the busy periods this year, i.e. school holidays, we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment as we are filling up very quickly.
