Mullion Cove in Pictures 2013
Well, another year is over and so many things have happened here at the hotel. We bet you’ve had a busy time too. From final touch refurbishments in January right through to the appointment of our new head chef, Fiona Were, towards the latter part of the autumn. We’ve been busy welcoming you all throughout the year. We hope you’ve enjoyed our company!
To reflect, we’ve pulled together a selection of our favourite pictures taken by us and our fantastic guests. We know you love the beautiful scenery at Mullion Cove Hotel in Cornwall so here are a few of our 2013 highlights in pictures.
We hope you’ve had a fantastic 2013 and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Mullion Cove Hotel in the New Year.
Another dawn another year . . .
As the sun rose over our beautiful cove in January 2013 we were busy making the final touches to our room refurbishments. Only a month before we received bronze for Small Hotel of the Year at the Visit Cornwall Tourism Awards so at the start of the year we were already on a high.
Crisp February sunrises
The cold yet clear winter mornings provided ample opportunities for our guests to undertake deserted beach walks, whereas inside the warmth of the hotel, we listened to the beautiful sounds of Mullion’s Cello Orchestra at their musical weekend.
Warming up in March
At this time of year, Cornish folk are readying themselves for the spring festival season. Temperatures begin to rise a little tempting the first buds of spring into early bloom.
Beautiful April blooms at Boconnoc Flower Show
April was a windy and wet affair yet it didn’t prevent the many flower festivals from taking place. The flora on show at Boconnoc House was particularly impressive as keen gardeners and florists alike worked hard to try and win a first place rosette.
Glorious Cornish gardens in May
In May time it was becoming apparent we were all in for a good summer which, of course, delighted everyone. Particularly our guests who had been looking forward to visiting one of Cornwall’s many glorious gardens.
Stunning sunsets in June
As the nights grew lighter, Mullion Cove and the Lizard (as always) became prime scenic coastal walking territory. Our guests were able to enjoy numerous sunsets at the end of their travels or while eating dinner in the Atlantic View Restaurant.
Record temperatures in July
It really was a belter in July during which we decided to explore the many ways in which you could get in the water! There are many adventure activities available in the summer on the Lizard such as diving, sea kayaking, coasteering and beach horse riding. Did you give any a go?
Amazing wildlife in August
In August we were still feeling the heat (but we weren’t complaining) including this amazing seal taking time out on the rocks. To cool us all down and help launch the opening of our Glenbervie Bar, bar manager, Lee, started crafting some tasty cocktails including the Glenbervie exclusive Cat of Nine Tails.
September rarely feels autumnal in Cornwall!
Guest, Lisa Schuster, captured some remarkable sunset shots while staying at the hotel which also provided the perfect back drop for our water colour painting courses.
Picture perfect imagery in October
Photography is also a hugely popular practice on the Lizard peninsula and beyond across Cornwall. This shot of St Michael’s Mount is one of the many amazing images captured by our digital photography course tutor, Bernie Pettersen.
Beautiful November skies
At the end of October we welcomed our new head chef, Fiona Were, who dove in at the deep end, running our Gourmet Seafood and Food and Wine Weekends as well as creating new menus for the Atlantic View Hotel. Guests were able to feast away after watching some cracking sunsets through the restaurant window.
Stunning December vistas
As we busily prepared for Christmas and New Year celebrations, the view outside remained serene and beautiful. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing some of you in January to view similar scenes. The cliffs are deserted, wild life is abundant and the first sun rises of 2014 take our breath away.
