Cornwall where to stay

May 22, 2016
Nestled at the point where

An array of home-baked breads, locally sourced honey and jams, granola, fresh fruit juices and as much beverage and coffee as you need to set you up for the day.

We like
The sense of area and freedom to roam, reminding you of a carefree childhood.

Not keen
If a full English break fast is essential, after that this is simply not the area for you personally.

Herodsfoot, Liskeard (25; B&b in a dual room costs £30 per individual per evening for remains of two nights or more; otherwise, £35 per individual per evening, centered on two sharing.


Set at the top of a hillside with panoramic views of surrounding farmland, 10 kilometers west of Plymouth rather than far from the coastline.

The farmhouse is definitely butter-coloured, with green-painted woodwork and a cosy feel.

The three bed rooms tend to be spacious, comfortable and simply furnished while having good-sized ensuite restrooms. The two rooms at the front of your home have a lot of light; the bedroom behind has just one small screen.

All things are organic or in your area sourced. The property owner makes her own tasty damson jam, the breads is home-made from newly milled biodynamic organic flour and the tea and coffee is Fairtrade.

The farm grows much of the organic produce that's made use of at Fifteen Cornwall, Jamie Oliver's restaurant in Padstow, and you may walk to the big veggie yard to see fat beans ripening under the sun in addition to raspberries, strawberries, butternut squash, fennel, courgettes, basil and nice yellow tomatoes. Also be aware of delicious plants like fine, blue-petalled borage, pansies, nasturtiums and marigolds. Evening meals can be supplied by previous arrangement.

We like
The tranquility; scoffing the strange tomato liberated from polytunnel.

Not keen
The back room is rather dark.

Polbathic, St Germans (15; B&b in a two fold prices £37.50 per person per evening, based on two sharing.

The Cormorant Hotel

Delightful, overlooking the deep creek cut by the Fowey because it flows out to sea.

An upmarket seaside resort supplying tranquility.

All 14 recently refurbished spaces have river views. Mine ended up being a "deluxe" however for the purchase price (£160, based on two sharing in large season), it thought small and crowded with an odd mishmash of furnishings designs. The toilet (sparkling accessories, energy shower to knock your socks off, no window, booming extractor lover) was indeed carved out-of a large part regarding the space, which only works whenever initial space is spacious: mine was not.

Fabulous, though tiny portions: small fishcakes, a dainty cup fabulous pea and mint soup and only a little percentage of lamb with a postage-stamp portion of fondant potatoes served in an airy, light-blue living area. The normal-sized crème brûlée ended up being an ideal blend of creamy and crunchy, associated with a miniscule rhubarb crumble.

We like
The 2 wide verandas overlooking the creek - perfect for mid-day beverage.

Not too keen
Extras at morning meal included a £3 supplement for scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, and £2 for haddock.

Golant-by-Fowey (26; B&b in a double space costs £60-£80 per individual per evening in large season, centered on two sharing; supper is £34 per individual, half-board rates in addition readily available.
