The Hidden Hut

Be tempted for lunches, snacks and even feasts

Be tempted for lunches, snacks and even feasts

This small café on Porthcurnick beach has been attracting rave reviews for our tenants Jemma and Simon. As well as all you would expect next to the beach, look out for their special feast nights (booking essential).

Open most days and every day in the summer months.

Jemma and Simon have also been featured 'living the dream' on Cornwall with Caroline Quentin on ITV1.


Look out for Earl, the vintage Citroen van, which has been serving specially blended teas and delicious baking in the courtyard at Porth Farm this summer. To keep up to date with owners Seth and Jodi, where they are and for more information about what else they do visit their Facebook pages.

Ice cream stop

Those long sunny days on the beach are only complete when you've had a truly Cornish ice cream with a dollop of clotted cream.

Find your way to the Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick or the ice cream van at Carne beach.

Across the water

Combine a visit to the Roseland with a trip across the King Harry ferry to Trelissick Garden.

Settle down to morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea at Crofters Café. Or have your Sunday lunch at the Barn Restaurant.
