Buy Cornish this Christmas

Christmas in Cornwall

This Christmas why not give your loved ones a memory of Cornwall in the form of a gift? You may not have been able to visit this year, but there are plenty of ways to source a gift from our Visit Cornwall partners below. They can offer everything from a bottle of cider to an acrobatic trip in a plane over the Cornish countryside. Both might leave you light-headed?


Everybody loves a taste of Cornwall

There’s plenty of choice in the food and drink line, not everything involving alcohol. We have fresh fish and meat, cheese, cakes and chocolate to tempt you, but if you do want to relax after lunch, then you are spoilt for choice when it comes to gins, cider or wines… Or why not chose a wonderful Cornish hamper, great for receiving on Christmas Day and you can often have what you want in it.
