Circle Of friends Holiday Retreat for One Or Two in Cornwall near The Eden Project and available for Daphne du Maurier festival week, starting May 7th through to May 16th.
Our bookings are of course from Sat to Sat, weekly.
The circle of friends offer a quiet space to relax in. The facilities allow you to unwind and enjoy the ambience of an established garden. There is a lounge /kitchen area where you can watch your favourite films or enjoy those we have provided. Where you can also listen to your music , on the latest fashioned stereo. Cook in a combination microwave, twin hob or small oven. Toast your tea cakes and even enjoy the benefits of an outside space as well as inside space to eat.
A sunny spot just outside your door, where you can sunbathe and read a book as well as just be, and enjoy a glass of wine.
The twin bed bedroom makes it an ideal place for two friends sharing the experience of Cornwall as well as couples, or those taking a break on their own.
We have already met writers of books and music who have been inspired while staying with us.
Artist from London enjoyed the tranquility of The Circle of Friends. This is just what we designed it for.

What a home – from – home this is. So relaxing. So made welcome. It’s a shame we did not book longer. Next time eh?

Not to be missed. Inspirational for photographers, writers, musicians. Where the new Alice in Wonderland company did some filming back along and I captured several pictures on the days. great stuff.
First picture on the left from filming at Charlestown, middle picture the twin beds in bungalow and right picture outside in the summer having tea for two.
A selection of some events through the year and happenings. beginning top left is from a mystic event outside, but a similar event happens at Cuddra Hall in St.Austell in October, that I arrange for the church funds. readings, therapies and like minded stalls. With plenty to see and do.
Middle top , is a picture of Duloe Stone circle, one of the smallest stone circles of the world. The energies make up for that and you can hire some special time with me to help you explore the stones and their energies.
Left top picture is showing some of my clients enjoying exploring the St.Austell brewery at a evening event. I hold several events during the year, including a meditation once a month at Par.
Centre left, is geese at par beach where you can enjoy feeding the birds and walk along the beach , and over the cliff paths. In summer it is safe waters to bathe.
Center picture our lovely author Justine Picardie who not only wrote the book Daphne but also writes for the Sunday Telegraph and Vogue magazine. I met her at Port Elliot when she was visiting her friend Lady Elliot. During her discussion on the day on Rebecca written by Du Maurier, I suggested that we could look at some of Daphne’s writing as that of a medium. It made for interesting thinking. However I have always found Daphne’s work that way. Take The Loving spirit book for instance. Well go on ….read it and see for your self.
Left , middle picture is a boat on the horizon at Porthbean beach, another beach very close to Circle of Friends. Plus a favourite of mine.
Bottom left is , a town cryer amongst fellow town cryers at the honey festival. It was a mixed day weather wise and last year the bees were struggling to produce any honey as it was such a bad year. Plus a new disease hit them which also was in France. lets help our bees as much as we can.
My husband and Jamie Reed at Atlantic radio station in Cornwall. A lot of stations have an open day in Cornwall when anyone can go and see what goes on. Interesting .
Lastly the bottom right picture shows more scenes of The Alice in wonderland shooting at Charlestown, near St.Austell. I had the previlage of getting some photos that was not available in normality.
So here we are some exciting things that happen in Cornwall during the year, and of course there are many more. Whatever your personal interest we will do our best to let you know what is going on.
