11am - 4pm


Port Eliot Festival 2016

Apologies for the change of date, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the dog show has been postponed to Saturday 17th June.


The Port Eliot Dog Festival celebrates its success in the delightful grounds of Port Eliot. Last year, over nine hundred people and hundreds of dogs came along and we aim to welcome even more in 2017.

For dogs there will be some wonderful classes to enter, including an old favourite ‘Dog who most looks like their Owner’. Plus a highlight of the annual event is Roo and Lark's Whippet Tea Party where an invitation for lunch and canapés is extended to all whippet friends.

For humans there will be an array of fabulous artisan food traders, The Shellfish Pig and Harding & Scoots Coffee to name a few, plus cream teas, other refreshments and fantastic live musical entertainment later on in the afternoon.

The Dog Festival is once again being held in support of the incredible charity Children's Hospice South West.

Entry to the wonderful show is £4.00 per adult, Children under 11 free, and £1.00 per class entry in the dog show. All proceeds to the CHSW.

Friday 19th - Saturday 20th May 2017


Port Eliot Festival 2016

On Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May, Port Eliot will be lit by candlelight and filled with music.
Come and join us for a night that will cast you back to a time before electricity when the Lords and Ladies of the past would hold lavish banquets and dances for hundreds of guests. An eclectic arrangement of acoustic music will be performed at various points throughout the evening and all through the house - the basement, the drawing room, the entrance hall to name a few.

Port Eliot’s knowledgeable stewards will be available to regale fascinating tales of the house if requested.  Perhaps you would rather soak up the atmosphere with a glass of wine at Port Eliot’s fancy pop-up bar.

House open 19.30 - 22.00hrs. Tickets are £10 adults, £5 children, £8 concessions and can be bought here.





Sunday 11th June 2017

Parkinsons UK will be holding their annual sponsored walk at Port Eliot to raise money for their incredible charity. Walkers will follow either a 2-mile or 5-mile route around the stunning grounds.
All funds raised from the walk will go towards research to help us find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.

Port Eliot Festival 2016

The four day Port Eliot Festival is a magical combination of books, food, music, art, comedy, fashion, films, flowers, wildlife and water, which defies categorisation. Held in the spectacular grounds of the ancient Port Eliot estate in southeast Cornwall (the oldest continually inhabited dwelling in the UK), the festival provides inspiration and surprises for all ages at every turn. Over the years new areas have been added, broadening the appeal to younger audiences and others who might never have considered coming to a literary festival before – including the immensely popular Cabaret Tent (where you’ll dance late into the night) the Caught by the River stage and The Hullabaloo.
