This was our 3rd time at the Bluff. We are a party of three; 2 adults and an 11 year old. Previously we have stayed in a room with the private bathroom right across the narrow hall. This time we had a shower en suite but not such a panoramic view.
The rooms themselves are very stylish with modern light oak furniture and crisp blue and white linens and decor with beautiful art work all around. The standard of cleanliness is very high and the rooms have everything you need; a tea/coffee making, a small TV and, essential for us, a small desk for the laptop using the free wireless connection (stronger connection in upstairs lounge) . We were a little cramped this time as we had 3 full-sized suitcases but, even then, still managed.
Beyond the lovely bedrooms there are relaxing communal areas. There is a family room downstairs with extensive library, comfy seating, and games if the weather is poor. Upstairs there is another lounge with beautiful artwork and fireplace. Even in the dining room (all light oak and tres chic) there is more comfy seating and a telescope which gives you a prime view of the beach at Trebarwith Strand. (No need to drive to the beach just walk down the coastal path for 15 minutes.) Nearly the entire side of the property facing the sea is glazed to maximise the wonderful views.
Breakfast is very good. The usuals are on the menu like the good old British breakfast as well as some other choices of eggs Benedict, original recipe muslie and kippers. All jams and marmalades are home-made and the chef catered for my gluten-free diet. I believe that evening meals can be ordered.
The real asset to this place is the owners, Charlie and Marianne, and their staff. They are very welcoming. They really have thought about everything from having a store of beach equipment like surf boards to providing fragrant shower gel which is locally made at the herbery.
We have done a lot of travelling both as a couple and as a family but this is one of our favourite places worldwide. We want to stay somewhere which welcomes our child but is still stylish. This is it!
