Man v. Sausage
Philleigh Way, renowned Cornish cookery school, is offering a fun, hands-on sausage making course, led by butcher and sausage connoisseur Gavin Roberts. Book your dad onto this course and guide him on the path to sausage righteousness. Key skills learnt will include knife skills, spice blending, the importance of seasoning and how to link sausages properly. After this course, your dad will be able to make mouth-watering sausages at home. He might even share them, too.

Father’s Day coincides with Polperro Festival this year, and what a happy coincidence. With lots of live music, food, drink, music, more food… it’s pretty much any outgoing dad’s paradise. Polperro is a gorgeous fishing village and the streets are quite narrow. Due to this nonessential traffic is forbidden, meaning visitors are free to weave their merry way through the crowds as they please.

The Ultimate Father’s Day Festival
To celebrate Father’s Day in serious style, Lusty Glaze has put together the ultimate Father’s Day event. The second one ever to be held, this free family-friendly festival will combine an exciting mix of boys-toys, music, food and activities that your dad will love and the whole family can get involved in. Expect jet skis, surfboards, assault courses and, of course, beer.

Dad’s Dog, Too
Does your dad have a loyal canine companion? If you find yourself near Padstow this Father’s Day, why not take to the coast. Cornwall is famed for its incredible coastline, dotted with secret coves and long, sandy beaches. Choose one of Padstow’s year-round dog-friendly beaches and head outdoors with your dad and his little friend. You’ll have an amazing time soaking in the scenery and catching up. And best of, no one gets left behind.

Welcome to the Jungle
Take your dad to Trebah and enjoy a special Father’s Day lunch, before exploring this sub-tropical paradise and getting lost in its gardens. Metaphorically speaking, that is. The beautiful Trebah offers an insight into another world, where hundreds of species of plants and trees frame meandering paths and water gardens burst with colour and life.

A Holiday to Remember
Turn your Father’s Day activities into a week of celebrations. Book your own luxury accommodation and let your dad really relax this June. In a private self-catering retreat, a day is more than just a moment; it is a memory to last a lifetime.
Book a Luxurious Getaway – June 2019
Give your dad a different perspective of the Cornish coast and book a boat-trip. Many coastal towns and villages around Cornwall provide day trips on the water; a magical experience whether you’re doing it for the first time or the fifteenth. Book your dad a spot on a boat and keep your eyes peeled for birds, seals, dolphins and, if you’re really lucky, whales too. It’ll be a day he never forgets.
