Treworgey Cottages

If you're heading down to visit us for a pre-Christmas break, this is the moment to forget the un-bought presents, the un-ordered turkey and the knots in the fairy lights.  Instead, let Cornwall rekindle your love of the festive season, at least temporarily!  

For real beauty and nostalgia, come along to the Dickensian Evening in lovely Lostwithiel, see the Cotehele Garland or listen to carols in the magnificent Truro Cathedral.  Or if you're bringing little ones, meet various reindeer or Santa in all his guises in places that are far more pleasing for grown-ups than the usual grottos!

Below are our picks of the local events in November and December.
