i had been intending to stay at Berachah since about 1995 when i first met Jan and bought some silk squares. My daughter (young adult) and I wanted a night away from general stresses whilst it was half-term and some time to be together. We stayed in the Pink Angel Room; where it was nice and cosy with Jan's silk paintings on the wall. Plenty of blankets available with cosy fleeces on the bed. The Pink Angel room has a sink available and a little patio and table and chairs; which i am glad of a little air in the morning but we didn't spend time out on the patio this time. We had a cup of tea in the kitchen, which is available though ones stay and then set off up the Tor; a footpath being right next to Berachah, although that day it was foggy, it was lifting a little. Then we went into the Chalice Well Gardens, also being right next door. We then walked into the town, a 5/10 min walk, to explore the shops and local cafes and restaurants! we are both vegetarian, and there is plenty of choice there. Though we also popped in a local pub, just to see what else was available. There was also a Fairy Fest in the hall which was good to see. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, with the fridge full of various options! my daughter who is a student, was spoilt for choice...what lovely views greeted us this morning after the fog of the previous day... amazing :-) ... Very enjoyable stay.
