At present the south west and in particular Cornwall is below the curve but things are starting to really turn bad out there. We have seen new bookings cease and a very sharp rise in cancellations. Regardless of our perilous situation at this difficult time we will work with our guests and potential guests to accommodate their needs. We have implemented an enhanced cleaning regime at Schooner Point and will continue to follow our Governments direction, whilst keeping our doors open. Our best wishes go out to you all.
Due to the lack of guests and the sun being out we took a trip to one of our favourite attractions in Cornwall, the magnificent Lost Gardens of Heligan. While there we could maintain our distance from other visitors. I woud like to congratulate the staff on the impeccable cleanliness regime and service delivered with a smile. We started out with tea and cake to keep us going, very nice it was too whilst sat in the sunshine. We were just a bit late for the Magnolias and Camilias and just a bit early for the Rhododendrons but still well worth the visit. They actually have pineapples growing in The Pineapple Houses but The Jungle is just the best. They are still paying tribute to the staff from the days of The Great War and many personal stories are detailed around the kitchen gardens, very touching. The days t-shirt was my John Lennons Give Peace a Chance number. As it turned out, completely fitting for The Great War theme boards around Heligan
Mrs.B&B and I are trying to look forward to the spring and beyond. Can't wait to see the boats being lifted back into the water and all the life on the briny returning to normal. Fishing, Looe Island, Polperro and Looe Bay boat trips will re-commence. Children and parents will line the quayside with their buckets and crab lines. The beach will be full, people eating fish and chips dodging the seagulls. The bars will be bustling and bands will be playing. Personally, I can't wait to get my shorts and "Dudes" on, you'll have to look those up. The Looe Raft Race will take place and what a spectacle of colour on the water. Looe Carnival week, Polperro Festival and Duloe Ale and Cider Festival take place. The main event, The Looe Live Festival is three days of live music on the beach, streets and Bullers Quay car park. It's all going on down here and we can't wait. Quite a tonic for todays worries and who knows, perhaps we will see you here, we hope so. We still have vacancies for most of these events Please support local and British companys by booking direct!
