Off to Perranporth tomorrow for a week so any recoemmendations would be gratefully recived as I am unfamilair with this area. Did Marazion last year so have done all that area (not to say I wont go there agin this year) but nice to have some recs. I am going to The Lost Gardens of Heligan but not the Eden Project after fainting in the greenhouses at Kew a few years ago and padstow for some Rick Stein Paul Ainsworth sustenance. i am looking for a nice piece of artwork for the hall and stairs something bright and big preferably abstarct of coloured glass so any gallery recs would also be good. Hopefully I will be tuning in on the wi fismile

We went to Heligan last year and had a lovely time - do take sturdy footwear if you're going to do the Jungle Route it can be quite slippery but well worth the trek. We spent a whole day there and still felt that we could have stayed longer. We also went to The Eden don't have to go into the domes, they are only a part of the complex of Eden...there is lots more to see, especially if you are a keen gardener. I have to say that from a gardening perspective we enjoyed Heligan more.
If you do enjoy gardens I recommend The Japanese Gardens near St Columb Major (I think) ...very peaceful and beautifully planted. I'll check to see where it is exactly for you. smile

You will enjoy Rick Stein restaurant and the fish and chips are good too, the tartare sauce especially, but John Burton Race knocked spots off Stein but I enjoyed them both in their own way, have a great time susie
