Picnicking in the Cornish sunshine

One of the loveliest things to do in the spring Cornish sunshine is to grab a picnic, maybe a good book and a set of boules, and to spend an afternoon relaxing with friends and family. Whether you prefer the beach, the park or even the shady shelter of the woods, there are countless wonderful spots for a picnic in Cornwall. Whilst for some, preparing the picnic is all part of the fun, others (myself included!) are just too impatient to bother with all that - so this year, instead of making your own picnic, why not try ordering from one of these lovely picnic companies...

Gourmet Picnics

Providers of luxury, handmade picnics made by gourmet chefs, Gourmet Picnics (based in Porthleven) offer a range of menus featuring the freshest local produce. From shellfish to artisan breads, homemade scones to petit fours, the delicious picnics are even accompanied by eco cutlery and crockery!
