Open Fires for Winter Warmth

Christmas holidays with the dog


As the leaves fall and the nights turn cold, we search for comfort in all things warm from woolly socks and slow cooked stews to cosy blankets and roaring fires. This Autumn has seen the concept of Hyyge , a Danish concept summed up as “cosy” (there is no direct translation) become more and more popular as people seek out calm, comfort and security in all things cosy.

Cornwall encompasses all things Hygge with beautiful winter walks, stunning scenery, and cosy pubs around every corner. There is nothing better than a wild walk on a Sunday accompanied by a roast dinner and roaring fire at a local pub with friends or family. So if you are in search of a roaring fire for a little Hygge and wine, here are a rundown of a few pubs with fires in Cornwall.
