5 star cottages Cornwall from Cosawes Barton - There is always something happening in Cornwall – for all tastes and ages. Here are just a few of the great things coming up in the next few months.

These are just a pick of what’s on in Cornwall. For full details, the Visit Cornwall website (www.visitcornwall.com) is a great place to start to look out for all events during your stay. We also regularly update the Cosawes Barton Facebook page with suggestions and recommendations of events taking place – and are here on site to assist you and suggest places to visit during your stay if you would like us too.

Carvosso Mill is a cottage on one level with easy accessibility into the font door and out into the private garden. It has extra wide corridors and doorways and a specially designed wet room. Everyone is different – we are very happy to discuss your specific requirements prior to your booking to ensure that you will have a really fabulous holiday with us.

We pride ourselves on being pet friendly and your dogs are more than welcome. Each cottage has its own garden and you are welcome to walk your dogs in our private 17 acres estate. We are happy to advise on local dog friendly beaches, walks and local attractions.

We love to be able to showcase the work of local artists in the cottages here at Cosawes and are delighted to say that three local artists have agreed to display some of their work in the cottages for the 2019/20 season.

Our brand new artist is Sophie Penstone. In 2016, one of Sophie’s watercolours was selected to co-represent the England section of the International Watercolour Society in Fabriano In Aquarello, Italy – meaning that work has been exhibited alongside some of the World’s finest watercolour artists.  We are thrilled that Sophie has agreed to exhibit here – and hope that all of our guests will enjoy her original artwork whilst staying with us! www.penstoneart.com

Chris Symonds is a fantastic local photographer and he is displaying a selection of his photos of the local area including his wonderful photographs of St Michaels Mount – and of the beautiful Kennel Vale. (www.chrissymonds.co.uk)

We are also showcasing lovely prints and pictures by Kitsch Attic – a furniture and homewares company based in Cornwall – which again has recently been featured in Vogue. As well as the gorgeous pictures, Kitsch attic makes distinctive and bespoke pieces all made with the highest quality materials and unusual fabrics. To find out more, visit www.kitschattic.co.uk.

All work is available to purchase whilst you are staying with us.
