Why We Love Winter

We love it when winter approaches as there is so much magic in the city. We’re getting excited at Merchant House as winter approaches and the festive fun begins! Here are some of the things we love most when it gets a bit colder and the nights drawn in!

Ice Skating Comes to Cornwall

Every year The Eden Project offers ice-skating, a chance to get your skates on and become the next Torvill & Dean, all in a magical iconic Cornish attraction!

Time next to the Log Burner

Winter is the perfect time to get engrossed in a new novel in front of the flames. Better still, enjoy a complimentary cup of tea and slice of homemade cake whilst you relax fireside.

Cosy Knits and Winter Boots

It’s that time of year when we can hide a few extra pounds with cosy jumpers, thick socks, winter hats and comfy boots, wrapped up warm yet super stylish, perfect for dog walking!

Twinkly Lights Everywhere

The big light switch on in Truro is one of our favourite evenings, seeing all of the lights twinkle, sparkle and glow on the countdown to Christmas. Everything looks better when it twinkles!

Market Stalls and Street Food

The atmosphere in Truro is so magical when the Christmas stalls are on display. Find Cornish treasures, handmade jewellery, art, skincare and unique artisan gifts. Don’t forget to enjoy the street food – hot dogs, burgers, doughnuts and more… it all adds to the ambience!
