St Pirans Day Celebrations

Gool Perran Lowen - Happy St Piran's Day in Cornish! 

St Piran's Day, celebrated on March 5th, is the national day of Cornwall, named after one of Cornwall's patron saints. According to legend, St Piran, a 5th century Irish Abbot, was thrown into the sea in Ireland tied to a mill stone; somehow he washed up on the Cornish coast still alive. He made Cornwall his new home and became the patron saint of tin-miners after rediscovering tin smelting. 

Today, Cornwall still celebrates his heritage. On the closest Sunday to St Piran's day, Perranorth hosts one of the largest St Piran's celebrations. Held at the dunes on Perranporth, a play is performed to re-enact St Piran's life. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged to dress in black, white and gold, the colours of Cornwall. 

Other celebrations will be held in various locations across Cornwall.

Great location with parking. Close to shops, pubs and beaches so no need to use the car. You even get a sea view !

August 2018

The price of the apartment was very reasonable so we were worried it would be very small or in a bad area. However the location was excellent, very convenient and the apartment was so bright, clean, new, stylish and spacious. We really loved it and felt very comfortable. We had a problem with the hot water which was resolved within hours - really very good service and our request for a clothes airer was dealt with within minutes! Really very excellent service, we could not have asked for more and will definitely be booking with Aspect again, thanks to everyone in the office for looking after us.

A beautiful flat with great views, felt very homely. Already thinking about next year. Never heard a sound from the restaurant downstairs and the record shop is only open during the day when you are out exploring anyway. A great little find.
