  1. Rooted…

    …in the Community..

    As well as being keen sportsmen and women at Kernow Stone, we also love being located in the centre of Cornwall and being able to serve the great Cornish people from down in Penzance to (nearly) Plymouth. And so when our local sports teams need a helping hand, we can’t help but say yes.

    We have a long relationship with Wendron United who were our local club when we were based in Rosemanowes Quarry in Herniss.

    As well as sponsoring their 1st team’s home kit, we also supply their 2nd team with warm-up shirts and, if you ever want to go and cheer on the boys at Underlane, you will find our premium granite splattered round their impressive clubhouse and changing rooms..

    And just like we’re not just content with one pasty, nor were we with just one football team. Falmouth Town Reserves were the next to adorn the Kernow Stone mark. With Town playing in the famous yellow and black stripes, it was a match made in heaven and one we just couldn’t refuse.


    The St Piran League, where Wendron’s 2nd Team compete, is also sponsored by us.


    Our connection with Cornish Football goes deeper still! After collaborating with The St Piran League for the 2019/20 season in the form of the ‘Kernow Stone Cup’, we decided to boost our involvement and become their league sponsors for the 2020/21 season.

    Obviously we know that there is more than one sport in Cornwall and so when Veor Rugby Club got in touch with us, we jumped at the opportunity as well. Our local rugby club will (after the lockdown) be well prepared for the winter with their Kernow Stone-branded rain jackets. We can’t wait to get down and watch!

  2. Move on up…

    We are excited to announce that in July, we will be moving from our current premises to a bigger and better unit on Dundance Lane in Pool, Redruth (site of the old Atlantic Windows).

    This unit, located in the heart of Cornwall just off the A30, is the perfect place for us to build on our continued growth over the past few years. We will be better positioned to offer the great people of Cornwall a better service (and a less-dusty showroom!) as well as more space to show off our ever-expanding stock of natural stone.

    Although we will be out of action for the first week of July whilst we move all of our machinery and slabs (no small feat- believe us!) our phone lines and email will still be open.

    We will re-open at our new site the week commencing 8th July and, with jobs lined up until the end of July and beyond, it is going to be a very busy time for us all!

    Look forward to seeing you all there!!

  3. Cornwall Home and Lifestyle Show 2019

    We were honoured to exhibit again at the Cornwall Home and Lifestyle Show at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge last weekend. It’s always great to be at such a prestigious event alongside other local businesses with a strong Cornish identity.

    We saw many old faces which was brilliant, as it’s always gratifying to see how happy we make people on a day-to-day basis. Not only that, but it was extremely exciting to meet many people from across Cornwall (and beyond) who are embarking on the first stages of their house-building project, of which we’ll play a small part at the very end. Glory boys!

    We will be exhibiting at the next show in October and so we look forward to seeing you then. There is a lot of exciting news to come over the summer though, so watch this space!!


    In the meantime, please do give us a call on 01209 862770 or an email at sales@kernowstone.co.uk. Alternatively, you can drop in to our showroom just outside Penryn. We’re open Monday-Friday 8-4pm and Saturday 9-12pm.

  4. Exciting times at Kernow Stone…

    The clocks have gone back and the evenings are getting ever darker. But at Kernow Stone, we are still in bright spirits. The Christmas period (and the extended run-up to it) is always a busy one but this one is shaping up to be even more so.

    Perhaps it is something that we wouldn’t have been able to cope with last year, but this year there has been plenty of change. Our first small steps consisted of  improving the aesthetics of the yard by hauling out the mud (anyone who came to our yard last year would testify for the thick mud!) and layering on the hardcore to provide a mud-free yard for employees and customers alike!

    But the big changes came in our workforce- during the past year, we have recruited 4 highly-skilled Fabricators (with another one joining next week) and 1 not-so-skilled Sales Manager to ensure that we provide the most efficient and effective service that we can to the people of Cornwall.

    On top of this we have invested heavily in new machinery for the factory to ensure the highest quality in all our work (although the majority of our work is all hand-crafted) and two new gleaming vans that you have no doubt seen driving at a very sensible speed up and down the A30.

    All this has meant that we are able to strengthen our relationships with local Cornish kitchen companies, builders, designers, architects and of course, the general public to build on our growing reputation as the only place for quality, family-run, bespoke stone-work in Cornwall with a friendly smile.

    So what is stopping you? Come to our yard in the Hot Rocks Quarry near Penryn to see how we can help you or give our friendly team a call or email on 01209 862770 or sales@kernowstone.co.uk. Alternatively, we are (at times) regularly active on social media so check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the latest news!

  5. Picasso or Paradiso?

    The challenge? How do you hang a 3.4 x 1.9m, 650+kg slab of granite onto the wall of someone’s living room, where access to the property consists of an almost vertical road for a driveway and about 10 metres of uneven, winding steps between the van and the granite’s final destination?

    The answer? Kernow Stone, of course.

    We recently completed one of our most logistically challenging but ultimately satisfying projects at a property in St Mawes. The client had spotted this slab of Paradiso in our yard and had fell in love with it. Nothing unusual thus far. But instead of wanting it as a kitchen worktop or a fireplace hearth, they wanted it hung on their wall.

    Upon an initial site visit, we saw that access was a complete nightmare. The property is on the hills overlooking St Mawes Harbour and the driveway into the property is an extremely steep, narrow, winding hill. Not only this but from the driveway, access to the property is down a set of broken, winding steps that would not be suitable at the best of times, let alone when transporting a massive slab of granite.

    Through liasing with the builders and the client, it was arranged for scaffolding to be built from the driveway to the front door of the property to enable smooth access whilst the wall and floor where the granite was going was to be reinforced to ensure it was fit for purpose.

    The fitting day came we had meticulously planned everything to ensure a smooth fit. We took all the necessary procedures to ensure that everyone would be safe, that nothing would be damaged and most importantly, that we had our Paradiso slab looking like.. well.. paradise!

    You can see the finished article below….

    And we received a brilliant message to round it all off:

    ‘Just to say an enormous thank you to Tom for getting the installation organised and for you and your guys for bringing the stone here on Thursday and installing it.  I know Dave had a team here as well to help and I know everyone was needed so thank you very much.

    The stone is awesome. We absolutely love it and it looks amazing in situ.  

    Tom suggested polishing the edges and I am so glad that he made that suggestion as it really makes the piece feel like a finished piece.  

    Many thanks once again’.



  6. The shows go on…

    Another weekend, another show! This time, it was the Cornwall Home and Lifestyle Show 2018 at a sweltering Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge. The Bank Holiday sun didn’t drive anyone away as the venue was filled with people from all around the county looking for advice on their new builds, refurbishments and renovations. We had a great time meeting all those from the correct side of the Tamar, although some from Devon were obviously allowed through for the day!

    We’ll be back to normality this weekend however. We’ll be open on Saturday between 9-12pm. Look forward to seeing you all then!!

  7. Fostering cross-Tamar relations

    Last weekend we exhibited with our friends from across the Tamar, Plymouth Stone, at the South West Home and Garden Show at the Westpoint Arena in Exeter. The whole team was out in force and there was even time for some ‘expert advice’ from Tom as he gave a short seminar titled ‘How to choose your stone worktop’.

    It was great to meet so many people who had travelled far and wide from across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset to be there. Following in the same vein, we are going to be exhibiting at the Cornwall Home and Lifestyle on the 5-6th May at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge. We look forward to seeing you all there !!


  8. A Family Affair!

    It was a family affair as the fourth and fifth generations of the Martin family were manning our stall at the Cornwall Home Improvement and Self-Build Show last weekend.

    Thanks for all who came down and it was lovely to meet you all. We hope that you left feeling inspired and informed. For anymore information, feel free to pop down to our showroom in Herniss, near Penryn or phone us on 01209 862770!

  9. A little bit of sunshine

    solarius-new-kernowA little bit of sunshine has arrived in our Penryn yard in the form of  new block of Solarius granite and it is simply stunning.  This Brazilian beauty is always a favourite as it compliments both natural wood and painted kitchen furniture so well.  With it’s striking quartz pattern of taupes, gold and creams with the occasional flash of black Solarius granite is sure to thrill.  Come and see it in it’s full glory.

  10. A Paraguayan Paradise

    piracemaComing into our yard next week is this cheeky little number all the way from Brazil! (not quite Paraguay but close enough) Piracema is the name given to the time of the year when the fish in the Paraguay river drainage basin swim upstream in order to lay eggs and reproduce.  Now, that’s an interesting fact! Piracema granite is not only interesting but also incredibly beautiful.  With swirls and eddies of light and colour this granite is almost a river in itself.  There is a wealth of grey and pale lilac shades with flashes of silver running through the stone, it’s almost as if the silver scales of the fish can be glimpsed in the stone.  Never has a granite been more aptly named.  This lovely stone would grace traditional oak cabinets but would look equally at home on a high gloss white or pale grey.  This one definitely wont be around for long!!
