... one of the more challenging Cornwall circuits. Hopefully the sound uploads with the clip so you get to hear the commentary in the back seat along the way. We shot this Saturday on the way south to Lamorna and Logan's Rock. Since then I've had some even more challenging drives but this one's not bad. ...
... the giant's well on the way up. Legend has it a giant would wade ashore from the mount and steal cattle. This was superseded by the Christian legend of St Michael appearing to local fisherman. Portraits of the St Aubyn family, who have lived in the castle since the 17th century, hang on the castle walls. In one room is a framed photo of the family with Prince Charles and Carmella, Duchess of Cornwall. People tend to linger as they move through the dozen or so rooms open to the ...
Day 3 - Friday 20th Sept.
The weather is much improved, bright sunshine, so ideal for our drive to the old fishing town of St Ives. Here we sampled the famous Cornish Pasty (that is how they spell it over here) for lunch & viewed the many wonderful galleries including the St Ives Tate.
We then journeyed through the unique landscape of tiny Iron Age fields bounded by stone walls, stone circles & the remains ...
... which meant I had a double babycino. It was then time for a drive to Zennor, a tiny village on the west south coast, south of St Ives. We wandered around St Senara's Church, which features a barrel vaulted ceiling fashioned like a ship's keel and the Mermaid Chair inspired by a local legend of a chorister being lured to sea by a mermaid attracted by his beautiful singing. Paradoxically, the legend was ...
... wild ponies & because of the inclement weather covered in mist. Another quaint village where we stopped for coffee was Widecombe.
Last night we stayed at the Two Bridges Hotel in Dartmoor which was built in 1770. Many famous guests have stayed there over its 240 year history including Vivienne Leigh, Winston Churchill, Wallace Simpson, Nicholas Cage.
Left Dartmoor after breakfast - travelled through more narrow roads & bridges ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boskerris Hotel St Ives
We had a fabulous week in Carbis Bay staying at the Boskerris. The hotel is perfectly positioned for St Ives via the lovely coastal walk or the train that is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. The owners are really warm and enthusiastic and are transforming the Boskerris into something very special. All of the public rooms and downstairs bedrooms are done with just the upstairs bedrooms to complete over the winter. Don't be put off! We had one of the old bedrooms facing the ocean and they are bright and clean and all you really need. Once you see the view from your room you will be smitten. The full English breakfast is to die for. Quality ingredients beautifully cooked. We will definitely go back.
What a fab. place
Fabulous place, fabulous owners, fabulous rooms and views and fabulous breakfasts and dinners.
Try it this year before you are too late.
My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Boskerris.
Champagne with a view
I stayed in the Boskerris with a friend in June and I must say we had an absolute fantastic time - the views from our room were absolutely gorgeous - good weather as well with blue skies and lots and lots of sun.
The owners did everything to make our stay a perfect holiday, they were really terrific and organised everything for us and you just cant beat having champagne in the evening sun on their terrace!
Definitely the best hotel we stayed at in Cornwall and beyond! Do not miss it if you ever get to Carbis Bay, St Ives is only ca 20 min by foot or few min by train, also taxis not too expensive with the most friendly taxidrivers in the world! Thanks again to everyone at the Boskerris!
Boskerris Hotel,St Ives
We've just returned from a short break at this very comfortable and very stylish hotel.
The hotel is actually in Carbis bay,of which there are spectacular views from the hotel's decking area.St Ives is just a 2 minute train ride or bracing 25 minute walk on the coastal path away.
Our room was one of the garden rooms with great views of the bay.It was very comfortable and ,as was obvious when you entered it,very smartly decorated and very well appointed,plasma screen TV,dvd player,glass sink etc.
The public areas were like the room, smart and comfortable.The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.We wouldn't hesitate in returning to and recommending this hotel very highly.
Well worth a visit
I stayed at the Boskerris Hotel after being booked in by my employer, I regularly stay at hotels throughout england and can honestly say that this hotel is one of the best I have come across.
The rooms are beautifully decorated with stunning sea views, the food is second to none and the service and attitude of staff cannot be matched for warmth & hospitality.
If you are visiting cornwall don't overlook this hotel when considering your accomodation, quite simply its leagues ahead of many of the large name hotels in both luxury & location......
A superb welcome
A wonderful welcome, warm & sincere.
The room was spotless, clean, tidy and with a relaxing smell.
Food was superb, well cooked & presented
Staff were warm, helpful and genuinely interested
in making our time there unforgetable.
We'll be back and we'd recommend the hotel very strongly.
Enjoyed a magical holiday, with excellent accommodation. Spectacular views from the deck and well, what can I say about the cuisine, scrumptious. Will definitely visit again. We were made to feel so welcome.
Well done to Marianne, Jono, Annie and George and Good Luck for the future.
Boskerris Hotel... a real gem !
A real gem ! superb !! excellent breakfast and what a view from the decking ! Family run and so friendly.. A real find ! 35 mile ocean views. Just out of the hustle of St Ives.. very tranquil and relaxing... Thanks Annie, George, Marianne and Jono.....
My husband and I visited the Boskerris hotel in late July early August of this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful if they tried. All the public areas were beutifully decorated and clean and the terrace, where you can enjoy a drink, has wonderful views across the bay. The breakfasts were delicious and healthy as you can choose to have food grilled rather than fried. The location is ideal as you are near enough to St Ives to get in easily but far enough away to escape the noise of seagulls and crowds. The only piece of advice I would give is ask for a room at the top of the hotel rather than on the bottom floor. We had a room with a sea view on the bottom floor but because the terrace was directly above us there was some noise (scraping chairs etc which echoed) it didn't bother us but it might if you were a light sleeper!
