There are lots of characterful b&b’s to choose from when it comes to booking accommodation in Cornwall, but special hotels are harder to find. Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes set the standard when it opened on the Cornish coast in 1999. Owned and designed by the illustrious and creative Olga Polizzi the house oozes style, with charming details wherever you look.
The food scene in Penzance is progressing at speed and many predict this town will soon rival more touristy Cornish destinations thanks to its innovative chefs and fine produce. Bruce Rennie is leading the movement in Penzance with his new restaurant, The Shore. After gaining experience at prestigious restaurants such as two star Martin Wishart in Edinburgh, he moved to Cornwall to head up the kitchen at The Gurnard’s Head before opening his own eatery in September 2015.
