Well it didn’t take long to get back in the saddle. From a slow first start in the first week we are now full and vacancies are few and far between in August and September. We do have availability in October and November but we are expecting these to go quickly. A number of Guest Houses and B&B’s, in Looe, are reporting full houses so if you want to visit be quick.
We are adhering to our Covid 19 principles and this seems to have been well received by our guests. It was good to see Sue & PJ, who came to see us for the fourth time and were keen to try out our “ruck sack picnic” and then our picnic hamper, their feedback was welcomed and thankfully positive. While here Sue & PJ reported that they were having difficulty booking into attractions and restaurants, so please be aware if you are heading our way make sure you have contacted the places you want to visit. If you would like to take advantage of our packed lunches, picnics or high teas. These can be added to your booking on our web site and remember it is cheaper to book direct with us.
The fishing charter boats are operating now, which has been to our advantage. I would like to thank the fishermen, who recently stayed with us, for the variety of fish they supplied, Cheers gents, much appreciated. Another of our guests spent 3 days sharking and the boat they were on was very successful, on one day they had 7 blue sharks and 17 in total.
We managed to venture out to the pub for the first time in months. Visited The Jolly Sailor in West Looe and it was good to see the guys again and of course offer a little support for another local business. While out and about in town today we noticed people on The Banjo Pier which is actually closed. This has not been done to annoy holiday makers, we feel, it has been done to help maintain social distancing and reduce the risk of the emergency services being called out in these difficult times.
Mrs.B&B and I celebrated our 13th. Wedding Anniversary on the 2nd. and we treated ourselves to a lunch in The Sardine Factory. Wow, what a beautiful meal. We both chose to have the Sunday Lunch which was roast beef and pulled brisket with green veg, roast potatoes, carrot & swede puree, Yorkshires and gravy. The best Sunday lunch I have had, other than Mrs.B&B’s, of course. I would highly recommend The Sardine Factory in Looe but again make sure you book well in advance to save disappointment.
