    One of the quaint cottages at Pendarvis built by early Cornish settlers

In ancient Celtic lore, Samhain (pronounced SAH-wun) marked the end of the harvest season. It was one of the times in the year when the boundaries between the natural and the supernatural worlds were thinner, and spirits and other mythological creatures can associate with humans. Come to Pendarvis to see which "spirits" we have coaxed into our world, and find out what they can teach us about the world they lived in.
