Engagement at the Bear Bench


A First for Degembris

Delighted to find out that two of our guests felt the magic of Degembris and they got engaged on our special bear bench overlooking the countryside and our lake.

A lovely note was left in their bedroom after their departure and we are thrilled to think our little part of Cornwall played a part in the romantic proposal.


A Hidden Delight

Equipping ourselves with the iWalk Cornwall Kings Wood and Pentewan we headed off on a beautiful June afternoon to explore. Not an area we are particularly familiar with but we will definitely be returning. It was a great walk, even for little legs (Tegen’s not mine!) It’s fairly flat and took us through gorgeous, green woodland and along parts of the Pentewan Valley trail. This is where iWalk Cornwall comes in to its own with great information about the area and its history as you are walking.



Another new look

So it’s the turn of The Lodge kitchen this time.
Having been in place since the cottage was converted in 2004 it has served us well but again it was time for a change.
A slightly different layout along with new units, worktop and some appliances have created a great little fully equipped kitchen.
See what you think after viewing the before and after shots.

Recognition of Service Excellence

Absolutely thrilled and very proud to receive this award for the service we provide at Degembris Farmhouse & Cottages.
The ROSE award is a fairly new thing and is awarded to businesses that ‘go that extra mile’ in order to provide excellent service.
It’s great to be recognised for this as it’s part of what we are about at Degembris, always trying to make your stay with us as special as possible.




Time for a new look

So it was time for a re-vamp in The Stiddle and the kitchen was the first to receive the update treatment.
Just a change of units and worktop this time around to moderise along with the addition of a built-in separate freezer.
Have a look at the before and after photos and see what you think!


Enchanting and Educational

Haven’t been here for a while and so glad we found time to visit again.
Took about 45 minutes to get there from Degembris and was well worth the journey.
Delicious meal in The Barn Restaurant before we started our tour around.
The children had a trail to follow which they thoroughly enjoyed, especially spotting the clues amongst the stunning surroundings.
Great activities to take part in at the Quay and a great spot to sit and admire the view, or run around and let off steam (just as long as you don’t fall in the water!)
The mill was also fascinating and would love to go back to watch the bread and goodies being made from the flour.
Lovely friendly volunteers and even a bit of sunshine, what more could you ask.


Fun in Falmouth

Can’t quite believe it has taken us until now to visit this amazing museum, so much to see and do we weren’t sure what to tackle first.
Some incredible stories conveyed here through the many boats on display and some great hands on stuff for the kids, well worth a visit.
