Two Cornish events this week – the first one is the Falmouth Oyster Festival this Thursday 10th to Sunday 13th October, and the second is the Thundercats (sorry, not the cartoon) Power Boat Racing at Watergate Bay 11th to 13th October.

So, to start off the oyster dredging season, the Falmouth Oyster Festival promises to offer some of the finest oysters to be found, along with a diverse mix of additional Cornish seafood caught in the region. There will be many activities such as cooking demos by leading local chefs, local ale, children’s shell painting, a town parade, live music and much more!

If that doesn’t ‘float your boat’ (excuse the pun!) then there is always the Thundercats Power Boat Racing where spectators can watch the action-packed races from the shore to see who will make world champion!

With views over Watergate Bay, this 2 bedroom apartment (1 double, 1 twin) on the Porth side of Newquay still has some availability for this weekend. A brilliant location for sea, sand, surf and that all important beachside pub 400 yards away!
