This is marking the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic. The Navy will also be here for as part of a regional engagement exercise, where they demonstrate how they protect our coast and shipping routes.

The great outdoors

Posted on: 22nd May 2013

Today has been a pleasant day, those of you that are residing here at the moment will surely agree the weather is splendid for those coastal walks, boat journeys and being outdoors generally!

I took a photo at the back of our Coffee Shop today as the plants have suddenly sprung by our conservatory area, what a surprise, a nice one though…

As the weather is nice we thought we could test our BBQ out. We do have facilities for guests to have their own private BBQ, we can get the coals, food, anything really to suit the budget, we love doing what we do best, we like to help anyone with a special occasion or if they just fancy a BBQ, any excuse to be out in the fresh air and beautiful mild weather….

scillonian III trip Scilly to Penzance

Scillonian lll

For those of you that have not visited the Isles of Scilly, we have a ferry and air link to our island, the ferry has just been refurbished earlier this year so I decided to take a trip on the Scillonian III a few weeks ago, this is the only passenger ferry link to the Isles of Scilly and I was pleasantly surprised, it was a really good crossing, it was calm and relaxing. I had a listen to the other people onboard and the comments in general were great, most noticed the refurbishment and stated how nice and up to date it looked with the new flooring, lighting and catering facilities that have been added to the ferry. There is a coffee/dining area with comfortable seating.

spring – a time for decorating

Posted on: 10th May 2013

It is a good job we fully decorated the guesthouse before our season started, as it has been very busy, especially over the last few weeks during the world gig championships.

We all started the year by discussing as a team what type of colour schemes we liked and what we thought that our guests may find tranquil for the rooms. We had fun doing various mood boards with different colour schemes and furniture. So, we all came to an agreement on this, fortunately. We ordered the new furniture, this is what we enjoy best, shopping!
