  • Hearty Cornish breakfasts each morning of your stay
  • A choice of one of Truro School Cookery’s courses
  • Add a three-course meal for you to sample our mouth-watering menu – an extra £60 for you both, giving you each an allocation of £35 towards the menu. Drinks not included. 

Fridays from 7pm – 9.30pm

Saturdays from 10am – 3pm

Feasts For Four
