For those of our guests who have already planned to come stay and for those of you yet to decide where to go this year, there follows a little taster of what is going on in Cornwall this July. Before I start there are only a few weeks left in Dingley Cottage during July. So best shake a leg if you want to come and chill during July.

Just click here for all the information for Mevagissey Feast Week which runs from 29 June to 4th July with lots of delicious food and drink and fun.

Another favourite is the Polo on the Beach at Watergate Bay. Held this year on 5th and 6th of July it’s a rare chance to see polo played in a spectacular and unique location. You don’t have to be a polo fan to enjoy this, the champagne bar makes it a great day out for parents; the fun atmosphere makes it a great day out for everyone. To be clear, the tide is out; the horses aren’t swimming!


Slightly later in the month and a lot closer to the cottages (about 3 miles away) is the Stithians Agricultural Show  held on the 14th July. Billed as Cornwall’s biggest one day show, it’s a must see day out. There is a huge range of animal show classes, both livestock and pets. Also dog agility which I must encourage Arran to enter our wire haired pointer Bingers in to. The thought of him veering off course going over the ring fence and helping himself to whatever free food was around in the crowd would be too funny to miss. Arran has refused to enter the dog show since, in our first year of residence in Cornwall, a judge said that Mr Darcy our weimaraner was too fat. He’s a lot thinner now but Arran has never forgiven them! There are also classic cars, steam engines and a funfair to enjoy. Finally on the 19th July the Camborne Show is on. Camborne is about 15 minutes to the north of the holiday cottages it’s another fantastic local show with show jumping, heavy horse demonstrations, dog show and agility, livestock classes and lots more.

If none of the above get you excited there is always the sailing, the surfing the eating the coast path the out door theatre, the many gardens…………….the list goes on…….and you could just pop over to our Make it Special page. Long may the sun shine.
