What you'll do

How often do you get to taste oysters at SOURCE? This invigorating excursion will see us rock up in Rock on Porthilly Beach where we'll dine on oysters Alfresco in clear view of the beautiful oyster farm they come from & the rest of this stunning estuary with plenty of space to keep us safe!

You'll be spoilt with copious amounts of pristine Porthilly Oysters, that you will learn to shuck yourself with expert tuition, knowledge of oyster culture and history and taste some amazing flavours of raw and cooked oysters.

Situated opposite the famous Harbour of Padstow & surrounded by golden Cornish Beaches it's hard to find a more spectacular setting to enjoy these gorgeous oysters direct from local farmers, on the actual farm!

There'll be plenty of shucking and oyster eating and depending on weather we'll fire up & BBQ a few. The set up is pop-up style, to give you an authentic oyster experience on the edge of the Camel Estuary.

Come shuck & sip from the pearly cups next to the briney blue with Katy, The Oyster Lady. I'll answer any questions you have & give you an insight in to the oyster world that will be hard to match. As a Superhost on Airbnb with my home in Newquay, I pride myself on my ability to welcome, entertain, feed & host my fellow travellers. See you at the beach.
Other things to note
This is an invigorating outdoors experience to make you feel close to the vitalising source of oysters & connect you with the hands on immediacy of opening your own. It's the UK, it may rain! :)

What an amazing find! Such a great experience. We were shocked with the amount of oysters we were able to have and take home for shucking too! Amazing flavour combos with an even better view! Thanks so much Katy!

A wonderful experience, learning all about oysters whilst eating them on the side of the estuary. As someone who was previously on the fence when it came to oyster consumption, I’m now a fully fledged member of the oyster club and will shuck away to my heart’s content. A great experience, and one I’d highly recommend

Fab experience! As some one who really believed there was no way I could shuck an oyster after an hour, we I did! I feel super confident and Kathy's recipes were spot on

This experience was a great way to spend a birthday. Katy is very knowledgeable and it was great hearing her stories whilst learning how to shuck fresh oysters. Great time and will be able to use the oyster recipes in the future!
