Callestick - 70 Years of Farming

Callestick has been farmed by the Parker family since 1953, initially operating a traditional mixed farm with a handful of livestock and also growing some cereals.

“My Grandmother bought Callestick Farm in 1935, my father started farming here in 1953 & now we have the 4th generation running the business, with the 5th generation product tasting every day!” - Sebastian Parker, Managing Director.

What’s on: Easter

We’re counting down the days until Easter, not only because we get to eat an abundance of chocolate, but because several of our favourite Cornish attractions are hosting seasonal events for all the family.

Our glorious gardens will also be bursting with colour as we welcome the new season, and we can all enjoy a picnic in the sunshine on one of Cornwall’s many beaches.

Armed Forces Day, the national event hosted by Cornwall

Armed Forces Day is one of the UK’s most important annual events. It’s a day to celebrate and thank the military community for everything that they do to keep us safe. This year this national event will be hosted in Cornwall.

Falmouth will be the centrepiece for the country’s celebrations (June 24 & June 25), with more Armed Forces Day events taking place around the world.

BBC One’s "Beyond Paradise" – our experience as a film location

With the recent release of BBC One’s new "Death in Paradise" spin-off, "Beyond Paradise", and the appearance of some of our Pentillie landmarks on the ‘small screen’, we are being asked lots of questions about our experiences as a filming location. So, while we could keep you guessing, we thought we’d spill some of the proverbial beans here.  

Where was Beyond Paradise filmed?

Spring has Sprung

It’s official… Spring has arrived in Cornwall.


We are often spoiled with breathtaking scenery and gorgeous golden-sand beaches, but we are also treated to an extended Spring season following its early arrival in Cornwall.


And here’s why…


The arrival of Spring is announced by Cornwall’s Spring Story once each Magnolia tree in six of the Great Gardens of Cornwall has at least 50 blooms, which this year occurred on Monday 27th February.


Beyond Paradise

When looking for a British alternative to Guadeloupe, it’s no surprise that you’d end up in Cornwall.

Following the end of ITV’s ‘Doc Martin’, filmed in the quaint fishing town of Port Isaac, your weekly dose of Cornwall will be back on your screens with the BBC’s new drama, ‘Beyond Paradise’.

This time, the south coast will take centre stage, showcasing the beautiful seaside town of Looe. 

Kris Marshall reprises his role as Detective Humphrey Goodman, following his exit from the popular show ‘Death in Paradise’ back in 2017.

February half term things to do!

February half-term is a promising and exciting time to visit Cornwall: the days stretch ever so slightly longer, with signs of Spring dotted all around. Of course, it’s the first school break of the year, and what better way to start your 2023 adventures than with a family trip to Cornwall. 

Don’t shy away from everything that a Cornish winter getaway has to offer. Our beaches will take your breath away any day of the year, and you can still enjoy all your favourite activities, such as surfing, paddleboarding, and sea swims… just don’t forget a wetsuit!
