Gilbert lodge








We recently went away for a week in the Cornish country side. We have always wanted to move down there and that week really cemented the idea for us. 

It took me awhile to find the type of place we were looking for in our price range. January and February is birthday season in my family so money was a little tight. All we knew is that we wanted a  home from home. 

I tried all the usual comparison sites but nothing was really catching our eye, one evening I found the Gilbert lodge while scrolling through Tripadvisor. I have never booked a holiday straight from their site before so I was slightly wary. Although I was very happy with how quick and easy the process was. As it led me straight onto the lodge's own website and then within a few emails. We were all booked and ready to go. 

The owners of the Gilbert lodge were friendly and gave us a little information pack via email which was helpful. When we arrived we did have a little trouble locating the key but the site's staff sorted us out right a way. We did have a little issue with the heating in the first couple of hours but once again the staff on site were so quick to help that we were happily toasty within a very short space of time.

We absolutely loved our stay at the GilbertLodge. It was everything we wanted, homely and so clean! The sofas and bed were incredibly comfy. There was a basket of books for me to dive into which I thought was a lovely touch. There was also two bathrooms and two bedrooms which was great to have that extra space and facilities. We cooked some nights and had a cheeky fish and chips followed by scones with cream and jam one evening and we were so content. The lodge was very close to the village of Tintagel which is very cute. The local pub had great food and a really friendly atmosphere. Oh and the fudge from the sweet shop was incredible. I bought some as a gift for other people and ended up eating it all! Sorry not sorry! 

The lodge was also not far away from most tourist attractions so we ended up going somewhere new nearly every day which was great. I would really recommend it as we managed to get a great deal and had the most wonderful stay. 

I would love to know your favourite places to visit in Cornwall?
