Where? St Germans, Cornwall
What? This is no ordinary festival. A celebration of ‘words, music, imagination, ideas, nature, food, fashion, flowers, laughter, exploration, fun and all that is good in the world’, there’s plenty on offer for the literary crowd at this beautiful Cornish getaway. Colin Midson of Bookshaped PR curates Port Eliot’s literary programme – you can read his 2018 reading list here, while we wait for the full line-up.
Where to Stay? Talland Bay Hotel, Porthallow, Cornwall. Talland Bay Hotel is set in two lush acres of subtropical gardens, a pebble’s skim from the beach. Choose to stay in one of the 22 beach-chic rooms, perhaps with a sleigh bed or four-poster draped in white fabric. Or for more space and privacy, the cottages are perfect. Doubles from £160.
