We have just returned from a long weekend break visiting family for Easter down in Bodmin, Cornwall. We stayed here at Bedknobs for 3 nights. After driving up and down the road a couple of times we found the house tucked away up a very quiet lane. The gateway is very tight as is the car park but we soon got used to the jiggling about to get in and out. There are also 2 charging points for electric cars which is a nice touch. We do have an electric car, although we chose not to attempt the long journey down to Cornwall in it. We were welcomed at the door by Gill and her husband Kim, who insisted on taking our luggage in. After taking our shoes off at the back door in the conservatory (they have lovely wool carpets everywhere) we were shown our room and bathroom. We opted for the Yew room which is not en suite but does have its own private bathroom across the hall. It is enormous, with power shower over the spa bath. Lots of thick fluffy towels and some lovely soaps and bath gel/shampoo. The bedroom had a double bed, antique I believe, which was very comfortable with Duck Down duvet although anti allergy ones are available if requested. Plenty of storage with bath robe. The tea and coffee making facilities had plenty of choice with hot chocolate and a selection of biscuits restocked everyday. The fridge in the room was very quiet and well stocked with fresh milk,(complimentary). Water, fizzy drinks and wine were an optional expense. The TV had a good selection of channels and there was a cd/usb hub/charger gadget next to it. There was plenty of information about the house, the owners, the locality and general useful tourist information in various folders on the desk. The room overlooked some of the large garden and just had a lovely feel to it.
At breakfast time we ate at a large communal table with the other guests which was nice as we were able to exchange information about places to go and where we had all been. We had little slips to fill in the night before for our breakfast which said when we wanted our breakfast and what we wanted which helped Gill and Kim prepare our breakfasts quickly and to our liking. The food was very good and there was plenty of choice of cereals, fruit, and cooked options not forgetting the toast and preserves and the local Bodmin honey from their neighbours bees. Kim was especially helpful with his knowledge of local places to visit and things to do. Also if you want to know anything at all about becoming greener these are the people to ask. I learnt a lot about a few things that we could do differently at home to help with the environment and although it is not forced upon you that is just how Gill and Kim like to do things. Altogether a very nice experience. Thank you Gill and Kim.
