All of us at the 19th acre want to wish you a very Happy New Year.

We know we’re lucky to be living in a beautiful part of the world and we want to share it with you.

When you're thinking of taking a holiday in our corner of northwest Cornwall we're aware that you have many choices available to you so perhaps now is a good time to take a moment to highlight some of the lesser known places to enjoy in and around our awesome location.

First it goes without saying that we're in an unspoilt location, opposite a National trust property, next to Wheal Coates, in Poldark country and surrounded by miles of open beaches. We have so many of the great coastal sports open to you including surfing, sailing, para gliding, swimming, coasteering, horse riding on the beach and so on.   

For those feeling a little over indulged after a vacation of eating and festivities then why not check out a fitness retreat led by your very own personal trainer while staying at the 19th acre?

This year, in 2016 we’re partnering with our favourite fitness consultant Steve, of Intelligent Fitness who is designing retreats for those who want to both enjoy our beautiful Cornish landscape while also enjoying the benefits of personal development and training. We're fortunate enough to have it all here on our doorstop so whether it's running in the valleys or across cliff tops, doing Yoga on a beach, mountain biking in the countryside, developing your body strength by exercising in our covered barn or pursuing sports techniques with guidance on our grassy acres with football goals to the ready then call us to design your own personal week away.  We're ready to take care of food and overall hospitality if this is your interest.

If you're coming to visit us on a holiday for those with a variety of ages and needs then, there's a range of fun and natural activities that don't always make it to Cornwall's headline status. All are close to the location we enjoy. First if you're a little bit of an adrenalin junky or just enjoy 'off road' experiences why not try racing friends and family around our local all terrain vehicle track at Chacewater. This well organized venue is only about 10 minutes away by car and is guaranteed to impress all who take part. This activity is perfect for friends and family who travel together and just want to have a little competitive rivalry or for the energetic teenager that just wants downtime. Don't worry if you have no experience. The team are organized and ready to help every beginner and cater for children and adults. Your children will not want to leave.

If you're a supporter of animal welfare or just enjoy a great opportunity to visit horses and donkeys then you can enjoy a great day out at the Flicka Foundation at Mabe Burnthouse near Penryn. Not only will you have the opportunity to visit many furry friends who enjoy your love and attention but you'll also be inspired by the stories of the benefits that Flicka brings. The Gweek Seal sanctuary gives a similar experience. You will not want to miss the glassy eyes of a seal pup and there are beautiful woodland walks to enjoy there too. We encourage you to walk as far as the otters who live at the sanctuary as they'll delight you with their play.

So – whatever you’re interested in and wherever you are we welcome you to 2016 and to our cliff top.

Please stop by to say hello!
