I quite frequently get inspired about my next destination by reading something about a hotel or a restaurant. I’ve never been to Cornwall but I’ve discussed about it quite a few times, as it has the Scarlet hotel and 3 restaurants I’ve read good things about. Then earlier this year I happened to read something about a new B&B place, the Salt house at St. Ives and decided that this year I’m going to Corwall.
St.Ives is a wonderful little town, with some of the best beaches in Corwall, small cobbled streets, some nice beachside restaurants and since 2003, a Tate Gallery. After a 5 hour drive from London we arrived at The Salt House around 2pm. Alan and Sharon, the friendly couple that own the place, decided to build a lovely modern house in the area and use the 2nd floor as a B&B of two unique rooms. Ours was the North bedroom and we loved everything about it; the interiors, the magnificent view, the tasteful breakfast which Alan cooked and served to each bedroom, the quite location.
Following Alan’s suggestion we followed the footpath to St.Ives and after 5 minutes we were at Porthmister Beach and it’s strategically placed café. Our reservation was for later in the evening but the sunny weather convinced us that we should have an early dinner instead. The food was above our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Another pleasant surprise was the St.Ives is nothing like other seaside towns that we’ve been to, and which in our view look to out-of-date with their amusement parks and promenades. It has great beaches popular with surfers, while maintaining a fishing community feeling and a tranquility that reminds you of an old era.
