Cornwall by Weekend Journals is a new, inspirational, travel book for design-conscious travellers, featuring a curated selection of places across the county.
Following extensive research and time spent travelling round Cornwall, the Weekend Journals team have uncovered unique and special venues: from verdant gardens to visionary galleries, independent shops and exceptional restaurants. The book is written by Milly Kenny-Ryder and produced by Simon Lovell. They both have strong family links to Cornwall and have been visiting since they were young. Using these connections they have gone off the beaten track to discover the venues that the locals love, while also showcasing some of Cornwall’s most iconic sites and stories.
The book features 40 venues including: Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Gardens, Chapel House, Leach Pottery, No. 56, Coombeshead Farm, Plumbline, Paul Ainsworth at No. 6, Hotel Tresanton, Fifteen Cornwall and Jubilee Pool, as well as many other hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries and places to visit all over Cornwall. It includes exclusive interviews with 2-michelin starred chef, Nathan Outlaw, prestigious hotelier, Olga Polizzi, up-and-coming designer, Tom Raffield, and Cornwall’s only hotel concierge, Sid Williams of The Idle Rocks.
Photography is by Gabriel Kenny-Ryder and is exclusive to Weekend Journals. All venues have been visited personally by the Weekend Journals team.
