Walk to Penzance (the dog will be pleased), come home to veg from the farm shop and fish from Newlyn, a cosy bar and terrace for summer

The Coldstreamer dates from 1895 and stands in the middle of the village. It has one foot in the country and one foot in town – Penzance is a short drive or a good walk. There's a terrace at the front where you can catch the morning sun, a wood-burner in the bar for winter nights. Inside, the colour is red in honour of the Coldstream guards. You can order a pint of Betty Stoggs at the bar, grab the daily papers, browse a collection of Penzance photographs, try your hand at bagatelle. Excellent food – as important as the beer – waits in the snug restaurant (low ceilings, smart colours, exposed stone walls). Meat is from Cornwall, fish landed at Newlyn, vegetables from a local farm shop, so dig into cauliflower soup with truffle oil, seared venison with juniper, fish stew with saffron mash, tarte tatin with bay leaf ice cream.
