Well, me and my little lady just had an absolutely scrumptious few days in Boscastle, Cornwall. The break was made all the more enjoyable by the accommodation being so damn fine.
Orchard Lodge is perched at the top end of town so you've got a steep hill to deal with if you want to go to and fro the shops and pubs and that. But it's not too far away and has ample parking if you're driving.
Our bedroom was spotless and decorated by somebody with an eye for these things, rather than the blind dimwit who usually decorates hotels/b&bs. And the bed........... the bed was HUGE and too comfortable to consider getting up from until at least 9am.
TV and ensuite and a free Orchard Lodge water bottle to encourage us to try the lovely Cornish water!
Coffee, tea, hot choc and biscuits were all dutifully replenished everyday and the breakfasts were nothing short of exceptionally tasty. Made using local, organic produce. Just the ticket.
The owners, Shelley and Geoff, are a very friendly and chilled out pair. Chatty and happy to help with anything they can. Never intrusive, always just there if needed.
Orchard Lodge cost me just shy of £70 per night for the two of us, and I'd say it was well worth it. The best B&B I have stayed at. By some margin. So there.
Easy to book. Easy to find. Lovely people. Lovely town (village?). I heard a rumour Orchard Lodge has a 5 star rating and I'm happy to give it the same.
