Back from Cornwall!

Back from our few days away at Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall - magic!   Can't recommend it highly enough.  Fantastic position, wonderful styling everywhere, excellent service from really friendly staff - and The Pool!!!  To die for -

Hot tub on the deck outside the pool -

The hotel from the beach -
I just loved the style of the place, though I guess it won't be to everyone's taste -

This area, in our room, wasn't too much to my taste - though I was amused to see the Toile de Jouey touch in the wallpaper -

We had delicious meals - in the hotel, at The Beach Hut and at Jamie's Fifteen (a 5 course tasting menu!) as part of the Taste of The Bay deal.  And we ventured out a bit. Went to Newquay -
and Padstow -

A great break!  And if it's good enough for Caitlin Moran, it's good enough for me! -

Arrived home to find lots of bulbs open in the garden (and lots of Celandine to be dug out :( )
Hope you're having a good weekend!


  1. Hello:

    This all looks to have been very goodly indeed and the situation of the hotel truly is superb.

    So pleased that everything, allowing for the odd piece of décor here and there, was as you would have wished.

    How we remember celandines!!!

  2. How wonderful and refreshing your break looks

  3. You are far classier than Caitlin Moran! Glad you had such a lovely time, it really looks completely wonderful.

  4. Fantastic. Glad you had a good break. And blue sky to boot!

  5. Looks wonderful! Glad you had a great time:)

  6. Oh Cornwall! I haven't been down there for years - it looks as lovely as I remember. Glad you managed to avoid the storms! Tonia x

  7. It sounds perfect, glad you had a good time.

  8. It looks and sounds wonderful with nice modern touches. Wasn't you lucky with the weather too? Lovely to see the flowers out for your homecoming too! x

  9. Glad to hear you had a great time - it looks a wonderful hotel, nice to see the contemporary interior - too formal a one would've looked wrong right by the beach!
    Location looks superb! Swimming in the pool looking out to sea must have been brilliant. And lots to do in that area too.
    How nice for you to come home to Spring bulbs - they all seem to be coming out now with the bit of sunshine we've had.
