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.

We love hearing about our guests’ experiences, and we know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
We pretty much only have praise for the property and the company. The booking was smooth and easy, anytime we contacted the office we were greeted professionally and with a positive attitude. The property was lovely and a great find, we felt fortunate to have found it plus it came with some personal touches and help e.g. a pint of milk and biscuits but this would have helped by having a few tea bags. The only other negative was no full length mirror or mirror near a plug for women’s requirements. A towel rail would have helped drying towels. Other than that, it was a superb stay in a great location at a reasonable price with parking. Thank you

Thank you for your comments; we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at The Anchorage. We are sorry to hear that you didn't have any tea left for your arrival though; we know a nice cuppa is normally first on the list of things to do when you arrive after a long journey (it is mine anyway). You would usually have some tea and coffee provided, so this must have been an oversight on this occasion. Thank you also for your suggestions of a full length mirror or one near a plug, and a towel rail; very helpful comments. Your feedback is automatically sent to owners, so that they can see guest suggestions, and we will also monitor for any further comments on this over the coming months. We hope to see you back here in Cornwall soon. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services.
