A week in Cornwall part business and part leisure. Have stayed at Driftwood Spas before 3 years ago and loved it back then so planned to return. The Cove and beach area is lovely and clean, excellent location to go walking from also. Only 15 minutes from Perranporth which has a superb beach. Good surfing location and handy to visit many areas of Cornwall from Plymouth to Lands End. Some excellent places to eat out in St. Agnes. Place called "Taste" is superb but needs booking in advance.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely go again Read more
My husband and I had a Short 3 night break, along with our dog, key choice of driftwood spas was that it was dog friendly but would equally recommend to all...with or without dogs. The location is great, the pub is traditional with a colourful vibrant aura, and chilled relaxed feel, you were not greeted with a list of rules and stress! Thank you to all the team who were really friendly and helpful. Read more

We had a most enjoyable stay at the Driftwood Spars, the food was excellent and the accommodation very clean and comfortable. All the staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful and there was a good atmosphere all round. We wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend it to anyone. The Driftwood Spars is a really good place to stay, but it could so easily be excellent with just a little attention and thought given to a few minor details, and that is a shame. This really only concerns the lack Read more

Very enjoyable; food very good and luckily the weather cooperated. Staff busy but very helpful when available. Beautiful building in lovely position. Read more
Driftwood Spars was chosen for an overnight stay during a tour of Cornwall. We had arranged to stay at different types of hotels and pubs/inns and we chose Driftwood Spars because of the location and the reviews we had seen. The location was really lovely and being mid-week we didn't feel overcrowded although we were told that when the summer season starts it can be difficult to park and it gets much busier and livelier. Read more
Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere the food was good overall. Breakfast was good and the breakfast staff excellent. Enjoyed the ales Read more

My wife and myself stumbled on the Dritwood Spar last year while we were out walking and decided that we would like, at some time, take advantage of the facilities. As this is our 10th wedding anniversary, I deduced to surprise my wife with a short break at The "Spar". It did not disappoint. The staff are friendly, the food excellent and the accommodation top notch. We will be coming again next year... Maybe for a longer stay Read more

A spring break of 7 nights to relax and walk coastal paths and explore some of Cornwalls' charms. Driftwood Spars is run from a characterful building forming part of the villages' history.
It is warm, cozy and inviting with excellent staff and welcoming locals. We enjoyed breakfast and evening meals which were delicious and well presented, no need to look elsewhere. The 'Spars retains its friendly pub ambiance but the Microbrewery, excellent food and accommodation add so much more. Excellent! Read more

This was my second week in St Agnes trying to learn to paint and to explore the Cornwall I knew as a child. Read more
The staff were very friendly and helpful except for 2 girls in the bar during the day (1 especially was more interested in her friends). They need some training in customer awareness and in customer service. The bistro lacked any atmosphere + is a bit stark. The waiter was lovely though. Unfortunately the breakfast bacon, hogs pudding + sausage were very rubbery as though it had been cooked for a long time. Read more
On arrival, we went into the pub which, although having won many awards seemed very dark and dingey. The carpet felt as though it was soaked in beer and the smell seemed to back this up. The rooms were up some steep, dark stairs behind the pub. The room we had was small, but adequate. We only ate breakfast there as we were going to visit friends. Breakfast was also adequate but the scrambled egg had brown bits in it as though it had been burnt. Not very appetising. Read more
We stayed for only two nights and would have liked to have stayed for longer. Our room on the second floor was, as they say, small but perfectly formed - sufficient space for two, a comfortable bed, a well-designed bathroom with spacious shower and to cap it all an excellent view of the ducks' morning antics. Breakfast overlooking the sea in glorious September weather can hardly be bettered. Evening meal in the characterful bar was really good value. Read more
Stayed four nights in the annexe with it's own garden area. Read more
A short break for my wife and I as we normally go abroad but due to her being pregnant we decided to have a short break down south. I had stayed at Driftwood spa many years ago and recommended to my wife due to its location and serenity to which she wasn't disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, had a few days to relax and visit cornwall and st Agnes, would highly recommend to anyone. Read more

We have been coming to St.Agnes for nearly 17 years and this was the first time we've stayed in the Driftwood and it was such a lovely stay. The view was amazing from our room, the beds were so comfy, they provided so many things for us within the room and the staff are so friendly and are lovely. The food at breakfast time was delicious. And it's literally a two minute walk from the beach. Read more
lovely comfortable friendly excellent food Read more

Wonderful peaceful break from the mayhem and stress of selling our house. Read more
Fantastic location but the hotel is tired in places. Room was comfy but needed some TLC. As a dog friendly hotel there did not seem to be full tolerance of them with extra charges etc. Staff were generally good but there wasn't enough when required normally at meal times where at times I felt like an inconvenience.....that shouldn't be the case. I have ticked that I would recommend the hotel to others but that's only just so. Read more
Lovely B&B, very clean and rooms well presented. Dogs welcome and the staff were very considerate of our dog.

A long weekend with my 12 yr old daughter in one of my favourite places on the planet! Read more
This was our second visit to the Driftwood we did think that the meals were not as good as our first visit. The accommodation and location are fantastic . Read more
Generally everything about the place is excellent (this is our second stay) but evening eating is a bit hit and miss. It was the same last year, giving little priority for tables to residents. The breakfasts are very good, but the evening cooking needs improvement, especially when the chef can't cook a medium fillet steak (twice!). This lets the place down and we will seriously consider somewhere else for next Easter. Read more
We booked a family room for one night. I was expecting a room with three beds, what we got was a small suite with a living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Fantastic place to stay. Read more

Driftwood Spars was the venue for a friends wedding so I naturally booked a room there without really looking at any other accomodation nearby. Read more
The hotel was very comfortable and our room had a lovely sea-view.The amenities in the room were good except for the bath which was not full sized,I couldn`t stretch out in it.We ate in the pub and the food was very good.In the morning we both had a full Cornish breakfast which to be honest was the same as a full English breakfast.I always thought that a full Cornish breakfast had Hogs Pudding with it which is what distinguishes it from a full English but sadly there was no Hogs Pudding.

Facilities, staff, location, cleanliness all brilliant. Read more
Had a wonderful time, we have never stayed before as we usually hire a cottage, but as treated ourselves to a long weekend away visiting a family member and made it the honeymoon we never really got to have on our own as we married down here but had all the family with us and we had our little boy with us.

Very restful and well catered for. The location was superb and of course the weather was excellent. Read more
This was our first hotel break with a young puppy but it all went really well. The hotel welcomes dogs at a small extra charge. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the bar food was good. We have stayed here before as it is in a fantastic location and nothing seems too much trouble for the team there. To be fair there are better rooms than the one we had, but it was all that was available, so we would try a different room next time. Read more
St.Agnes is a beautiful place to be, the hotel is nestled in the beautiful bay, there were only a few little things that have marred our vacation experience. Read more
Enjoyable Read more
We had one of the garden rooms. I've stayed here before and find it perfect as a base to explore Cornwalls rich coastline or meet up with friends for frolicking in the cove. Will always make Driftwood Spars my ideal venue for future stays. Room was clean, bright and airy. Breakfast was wholesome and plentiful. Read more
A relaxing interlude during a busy business trip Read more
Went there as part of a birthday celebration. A number of pretty good restaurants within a ten min walk, (we had no car, as we went down to Cornwall on the night sleeper.) of the hotel. Need to book ahead at busy times of the year. Enjoyed lovely weather, beach, cliff top walks, the beer from Driftwood micro brewery, and had excellent reports of Lewsey Lou's chip shop next to the hotel and owned by Driftwood Spars, sadly no time to confirm that but it appears very popular! Read more
Very enjoyable. Read more
I stayed here while walking the South West Coast Path, with my dog and it was a great base, with good food, comfortable single room in a lovely location. It was the first time I had holidayed without my husband for many years, and it was nice not too feel that I stuck out like a sore thumb in the restaurant/pub. Some great live music in the pub garden when I arrived, if a little loud outside my bedroom window, but as I like live music this was ok for me. Read more
We stayed Monday to Thursday had room 1 which is lovely windows on two sides so caught any breeze that was around. Nice view of the sea. Read more

Fantastic in all areas Read more
We were returning to Cornwall for a short break having not been there for a number of years. We wanted to be in an area where we could explore easily on either coast and St Agnes seemed the perfect spot. The hotel is set right on the beach which is just outside the main village and is right on the coastal path so attracts lots of walkers who call in for food/drink so the main bar is a busy thoroughfare throughout the afternoon and evening. Read more
We are hiking the SW coastal trail and Driftwood Spars is a convenient and welcome destination. The staff was very friendly, permitting us to check in early and even drying our washing in their tumble dryer. Read more
Four night stay - previously visited Driftwood Spars for food and drink. Very disappointed with room - extremely small, bedding and curtains stained, holes in wall, very uncomfortable and squeaky bed. General housekeeping was good although we had bought a glass from Healey's which the housekeeper took thinking it was a pub glass - after asking on several occasions, no sign of glass. Read more
We had a lovely stay here and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Prime location, a stone's throw from the beach and fantastic food. Well worth a visit Read more
Staying for a couple of nights with our dog. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Ideally located near to the beach and the restaurant has a beautiful large picture window over looking the sea. Parking is always a problem in Cornwall, but ample parking is available for residents. They have their own micro brewery and fish and chip shop, both highly recommended. Read more
We were accompanying our son and two grandchildren who were staying in a nearby holiday camp. Read more
Had a wonderful stay. Great location. Nice clean rooms. Bathroom lovely. Staff really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. Read more
We were told we would be on the first floor and ended up being on the second floor. The carpet on the stairs was dirty. The room was not clean & shower kept going hot & cold and was weak. The breakfasts ranged from being undercooked to being chaotic - having to hunt tables for salt, bowls and having a defective toaster. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Read more
Excellent centre for walking as it is so handy for the coast path. We wanted a venue that had an outdoor activity value which for us is walking Read more
We've visited Trevaunance Cove many times over the years and we'd said for some time we really should stay at the Driftwood Spars rather than just having a drink or a bite to eat before heading off elsewhere, so this year we booked to stay two nights. We were not disappointed. Wonderful location, excellent food and drink (their locally-brewed bitters are definitely worth a try), and friendly people make for a relaxed holiday retreat in a beautiful location. Read more
Staying for just one night in business, the Drifwood Spars was a very friendly place to stay - with good food and drink, and in an excellent and relaxing location. I would have no hesitation recommending it for one or two nights or a longer stay. Read more

The evening meal and breakfast were wonderful, the muscles were the best ever. Read more

Stayed at the Driftwood for 5 nights. Room was small but adequate for our needs and had a gorgeous sea view overlooking the cove. Staff were friendly and helpful and, from what we observed, very patient with some 'particular' guests! Breakfast consisted of a small buffet of cereal, fruit etc. a choice of cooked breakfast was also available and the fresh farm eggs were very tasty. The surrounding area is very pretty with lots of cliff walks to keep you fit. Read more

absolutely brilliant.. I was last in st agnes when I was a child, great to go back. Read more
From the minute I arrived I felt welcome and relaxed. I was nervous about staying in a hotel on my own for the first time but this was so cosy and everyone so friendly and helpful I was immediately put at ease. I was also worried that, because it was also a pub that it would be noisy late at night, this was not the case. The hotel was immaculately clean and fresh, the decor is tasteful and the room was light and airy. I did not feel akward walking into the breakfast room in the morning either. Read more

Thank you for your review, I will have a look into these small but irritating issues and thank you for flagging these to us, I assure you we will do our best to resolve these issues.
I had originally planned to stay 2 nights in the St Agnes area before moving down to The Lizard, as part of a touring week in Cornwall. I stayed here last year and enjoyed the experience very much. Unfortunately there was only room for 1 night this year at this period. The only "blot" on the landscape was a large party of enthusiastic Australian tourists which stretched the staff's potential rather, and didn't help my Migraine over breakfast the following morning. Ah well, it couldn't be helped Read more
Glad you had a pleasant if not noisy time, sorry we couldn't squeeze you in for another night, hope to see you again very soon.

Relaxing, enjoyable atmosphere in a scenic location, the Driftwood Spars is authentically and tastefully furnished with friendly, helpful staff who are honest too - taking the trouble to return my lost purse. Proper ales available and the quality, promptly served food was especially appreciated after a days coast path walking- smoked haddock for breakfast and vegetarian lasagne being particular favourites Read more

Two nights in a lovely setting for a holiday and business. Read more
This time we had a small but comfortable bedroom, facing away from the early morning sun, which would otherwise wake us up too early. The location, so close to the sheltered beach, is wonderful. There is a lot to do, such as walking up to the Beacon, surfing, swimmimg, and visiting other places such as taking a train from St.Erth to St.Ives, after a 20 min. drive to St.Erth. For those who can fly aeroplanes, the local airfield is very close, and the people there are very kind, too. Read more

We stayed here thinking it would be a good base to explore Cornwall from for 3 days. But we never left the cove!! Having both travelled a lot, one can honestly say this place is a hidden gem. We've walked over the amazing cliffs with our dog and many more beauitful walks, hung out on the beach, chatted to the locals in the bar at night, visited St Agnes , but we enjoyed sitting on a rock, watching the sea most.

Read more
We had a great weekend in a superb location and very comfortable accommodation. The staff were frindly and helpful and the atmosphere very good. Great real ales too. But the food was below average, basic pub fare and was costly - not what we were led to believe from the pictures. Also a failing was the kitchen staff did not cater for simple variations or additions eg you could have chips (the soggy thin, possibly reconstituted ones), but cheesy chips not possible! Read more

We stayed here as it's well known & features in our chosen travel guide - the Good Pub Guide! From that you might gather that the atmosphere in the pub was possibly more important to us than the accommodation. This is where the pub really scores: Good beer, food & atmosphere. The room was very basic, had paper thin walls & a squeaky bed. The en-suite was fine - nothing more. Breakfast was fine. The cooked breakfast used good quality produce. The buffet 'extras' were sadly less impressive. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your recent stay. We are extremely sorry that you were unhappy with the bed and soundproofing in your room. We have investigated the problem with the bed and will be replacing it very shortly with a new one. We would be grateful if you could specify which side(s) of the wall(s) that you noticed were particularly thin so that we can look into how we might address the problem. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
The 3 days we stayed were enough to create a very favourable impression of a small very well run hotel,smiles and helpfullness were the order of the day from the staff and the location was was goo for the beach (weather porviding)and beautiful walks in stunning scenery. Read more

A thoroughly enjoyable long weekend with good food and an excellent range of real ales all of which were in first class condition. Delighful and comfortable bedroom with a sea view and close enough to be able to walk into the sea for a dip, once you have fought your way through the ever present surf. Read more

I have stayed at the hotel on for business purposes in the past and decided to try a weekend break. On previous visits the menu in restaurant and bar were excellent with tremendous choice and quality food. During my weekend I was surprised to find a new menu with limited choice and high prices. The breakfast menu was excellent, let down by small portions particularly the smoked haddock with poached egg.Cleanliness in the hotel rooms was okay, but not what I would expect from this star rating. Read more
Dear Brian. Thank you very much for taking the time to give us your thoughts and feedback on your recent stay. Since your visit, we have trained our waiting staff to ensure more consistent service and standardised our menu for the summer season. We have also reinstated regular room checks to ensure cleanliness.
Very pleasent, room small but clean and lovely comfortable bed. Lovely location, the receptionist was polite, friendly and helpful. Sadly we did not try the resturant due to such poor service at breakfast, which was repeated on the second morning, and we were only a few tables. Hate to think what it would be like in the summer. If the staff issues were adressed i would recommend this hotel, and more so if you like costal walking as we do. Read more
Thank you very for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your recent stay.
We have addressed the issues surrounding breakfast and are organising training for our waiting staff in order to ensure that high standards of customer service are upheld at all times.
We hope that you will visit the Driftwood Spars again in the future.
Thank you for your feedack.
I was welcomed in a friendly way then shown to my room,from which I could go first thing in the morning for a swim before breakfast.Trevaunance is a unique place and even in July has an almost hidden nature about it.You can feel at times that it is there just for you! Read more

The positioning of this hotel is what makes it. So close to the sea/coast. My only gripe about my stay was the service in the restaurant. 45 minutes to get a goats cheese salad? Read more

Dear Jacqueline. Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts and comments on your recent stay. We would like to apologise for the noise disturbance and dampness. We did put more insulation in this room last year to sound proof the walls and help protect against the humidity created by the water in the nearby stream. We will look at the issues again during our period of refurbishment over the winter time. We hope to see you again and thank you again for your feedback.
Arrived early Saturday afternoon and our room was available on arrival as had been requested (if possible), wonderful view of the bay from the room which was compact and comfortable with reasonable facilities. We had an enjoyable wedding breakfast in light and airy surroundings again with excellent views of the bay from the restaurant which also has 3 small but enjoyable balconies. There is also a lively and sociable pub attached to the hotel. Read more
Dear Nicholas. Thank you very much for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again.
We stayed for 2 nights. This hotel is situated directly on the Coastal path and within sight and a 1 minute walk of the beach. The whole place feels very un commercial and it realy is a place to go to get away from it all. We took our black lab, dogs are also allowed on this beach. That said, this place is immaculately clean from both dog waste and litter - everyone seems to behave very responsibly. You can walk as far as you wish along the coast in either direction Read more
Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your recent stay. We are really pleased that you had a nice visit and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Awesome location and great atmosphere in the hotel bars and surroundings. Great quality and choice of breakfasts. Room was very comfortable, clean and quiet.

We were down in St Agnes for a short break/friend's wedding and chose Driftwood Spars because its website made the place look lovely, like a boutique B&B (and the rooms were priced accordingly). Had a great time but an uneven experience: location, breakfasts and pub were all excellent, but the rooms failed to match them. This is a pub B&B, not a boutique hotel, so was expensive for what you get - would wholeheartedly recommend as a cosy pub; but less so the rooms. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to give us your comments on your recent stay. We are in the process of updating the pictures on our website and the bathroom in room 9 will be updated soon as part of our refurbishment programme.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your stay here. The carpets were professionally cleaned recently and will now be cleaned on a monthly basis.
We spent the bank holiday weekend in Driftwood Spars and I believe that it was good value for the garden view chalet. If you are looking for a charming character filled B&B this is not it but it the location, which is spitting distance from the beach, the quality breakfasts, good service, nice bar area and pleasant rooms made this place great value for money. I would recommend! Read more
Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your recent stay. We hope to see you again in the future.
The location and atmosphere of Driftwood Spars really grew on us. We liked to be part of a very friendly and eclectic patronage. It proved to be a really good vantage point for walks and short car tours around West Cornwall which we fully exploited. Our visit just preceded the Bank Holiday weekend which meant that parking access and traffic were relatively low, and made for a very relaxed 3 days. Availability of local seafood in W Cornwall and at the pub should be much better than it is. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your stay. We welcome all comments and take them seriously. The issues surrounding breakfast has been addressed and we have completed additional staff training to ensure that we have consistency in the product. We pride ourselves in sourcing only local produce and appreciate your feedback on the butter and the haddock. In future the butter will be kept this in the fridge overnight to ensure freshness in the morning.
The hotel was not the standard one expects from a 4 star establishment. North Cornwall is a fantastic place to be and with the good weather we spent most of our visit away from the hotel. Read more
Thank you very much for taking the time to give us your feedback on your recent stay. We take all comments seriously and apologise for the lack of cleanliness; we have since employed a Head Housekeeper to ensure higher standards throughout our establishment. During the low season during quieter times, we close our dining room due to reduced staffing levels. Thank you once again for your comments, which we use to improve all aspects of the business.

We took a three night break at Driftwood Spars. We were allocated a large family room with a four poster bed and a bunk-bed for the kids. The room had patio doors leading onto a lovely garden. Read more
A very welcome break in a beautiful location. The room was clean with lots of space for our family of four. If I was to find any criticism of the facilities it would be that the bathroom was a little tired and dated and although it was clean it did smell a little of stale urine- probably the result of a dated lino floor? Also it would of been nice to be able to plug the kettle in at the drinks table and not need to move it to the floor at the side of the bed! Otherwise, a wonderful room. Read more

We enjoyed everything until breakfast we were told this was from 8am-10am we turned up at 8 as we had to be in Truro for 9 and no-one was about we waited until gone 8.30 and had to leave without it so did someone else. Unfortunately this did spoil our stay somewhat although when I rang the hotel later in the day the gentleman told me that someone hadn't turned up and as we had had a meal the previous evening and not paid, he would waver the bill to make up for no breakfast.

It was a short business trip - one night at the hotel. Read more
Our week coincided with the annual beer festival which seemed to cause a certain amount of chaos and service was a bit hit and miss. The room was generally comfy, but the bathroom was tired and needed a refit. Live music was on twice during our stay - thank goodness we were in the annexe and not the main building. Read more
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights to attend a nearby wedding. On arrival we found that there was also a beer festival present which was a nice surprise and we were able to try some local ales. Since there is a lively pub at the hotel we did find it quite noisy. The rooms were small and basic but very clean. we have a great view of the bay from our window. Read more

Friendly and helpful staff, clean and airy room with plenty of towels. Electric shower was weak and pitiful and not what I expected for a room at this price. Quality of the breakfast was faultless though the portion seemed a little mean. Read more
The hotel is marketed as 4star - the location, food, staff service all deserve that rating but the quality of the rooms does not. We had a fantastic sea view in room six and althougth the bathroom was clean and the sheets were clean and fresh the general cleanliness of the room was very very poor - the cobwebs on the ceiling were unbelievable, the lampshade was a mass of dust and cobwebs, the stains on the wall were very unsightly.
The room was in dire need of some TLC and a spring clean! Read more

The room we had was not in the main part of the hotel but was very close. The room was spacious (more so than in the main hotel) clean and comfortable and excellent value. the breakfast is out standing and the views from the restaurant second to none. If you love North Cornwall, good food and drink and like a place where you can get to know the locals-both people and dogs-then you won't go far wrong here. The bar food is excellent value for money and the staff friendly and helpful. Read more

The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Storage was a problem. There were about 6 coathangers in a wardrobe along with an iron and ironing board (cramped) and apart from a desk with tiny drawers there was nowhere to either hang clothes or put them in drawers. Breakfast and the meals at the hotel were wonderful but there were no inexpensive choices and parking in St. Agnes was pretty much impossible. Bed wasn't overly comfortable and the pillows a little lumpy. Read more
Adeqate for our 2 night stay, although I think a little expensive for what we got.Lovely position, but be prepared for long uphill walk for any other facilitiesif not wishing to drive.Restaurant food very good, but menu a little limited. Read more
Room - not as good as expected from photos on the website, not well cared for. Cleanliness not to a good standard. Noisy plumbing and electrical cut outs. Read more

The Driftwood spars was just what we wanted for a romantic short break. The room was spacious with plenty of room in the ensuite. The decor was tasteful in a nautical theme. We loved the breakfast. It makes such a nice change to have fresh locally sourced food rather than the budget sausages and bacon we usually get. Read more
The rooms are not big, but clean and pleasant. The rest of the hotel has bags of character, the staff and locals are really friendly, and the location couldn't be better for the beach and surrounding area. Overall i would definately stay there again and have recommended it to all my friends and relatives. Read more
From start to finish, all the staff were very friendly and welcoming, and could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms were good, and the location was excellent. Read more

Driftwood Spars proved an excellent base from which to explore a lovely area that we last visited on honeymoon 35 years ago.
The staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The accomodation was satisfactory in every respect.
The breakfasts and one evening meal that we had were very good.
The location was great. We enjoyed exploring local walks and places of interest, visiting places further afield and sampling several excellent eateries, including one of Rick Stein's in Padstow. Read more
Whatever the time of year, the 4 star rated guest accommodation at the Driftwood Spars offers a warm and friendly welcome. It provides a comfortable environment in which to relax and enjoy your holiday. This traditional, family owned Cornish B & B also has an onsite dining room, microbrewery & seafood takeaway facilities too.

There are carnivals, fetes and fairs, music and theatre, regattas and fishing contests going on throughout the year. There are also numerous interesting galleries, potteries and design workshops. Pubs and eating-places abound and the village is famous for its old pubs and nightlife. The establishment is a 17th century building full of history.
