Reasons for trip


We recently (March) stayed for 2 nights B & B at the Ship Inn in Tresaith. It is opposite a small beach with clifts either side. There is only a small carpark but we had no problem parking but think you may struggle in the busier months. There are only 4 rooms, all at the front with sea views. Ours was roomy and light with french doors leading to a balcony (not room to sit on but you could stand on it) and a large window as well, to admire the brilliant views. We had a good sized ensuite with shower cubicle, toilet and sink and heated towel rail. There was a double bed with bedside tables, wardrobe, chest of drawers, small table and 2 chairs, tv and tea and coffee making facilities and delicious biscuits! We never watched the tv as the views were all we needed. It was spotlessly clean and bright and cheerful.

I did not see a lift, and the few stairs to the bedrooms may be regarded as steep for some people.

All the downstairs rooms and bar are equally cosy and welcoming. There is room inside the main part for dining, a log fire in cold weather and chairs and settees. There is a long conservatory also for dining where we had breakfast and dinner with the great views again. Outside there are more tables for when it’s warmer with heaters for cooler evenings.

The breakfast choice is excellent and the cooked meals are freshly prepared using local produce. We ate there both nights and the food was delicious.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome.

There was free WiFi but we couldn’t get a mobile signal for O2 but I don’t know about the other network services. However there is a working telephone box outside which we used.

There are walks up to and along the cliffs for the mobile and I believe the beach is very popular with families in the summer.

We are just 60 and it was perfect for us. I don’t think I would go in the summer months when it’s more busy but we rarely go anywhere where there would be lots of children in the school holidays!

The villages and towns round about are delightful and so there was plenty for us to do and see – we like unspoilt places.

We definitely will go back again.
