OK, so this is the first travel/place post for me on my blog (yay finally). As you may be able to tell I don't really go to a lot of places, but I am hoping to change that as my confidence has grown so much this past year and I've started to venture out a little bit more.:)

I'm a bit of a home bird. I like being surrounded by my home comforts!!

Anyway onto this post, so recently I decided to take a trip to Cornwall with my partner and parents for a few days. It was somewhere none of us had visited before and we had heard such lovely things about the different area's, and seen some beautiful pictures. So we decided to venture down there.

We stayed at a beautiful b&b guest house in a little village called North hill near to a town called Launceston. A very quiet village where we experienced for the first time no phone signal whatsoever.. (It was great) to just not have to keep picking my phone up and going on social media and talking to people when I didn't need to was great, just goes to show you really don't have to be glued to your phone 24/7.

(By the way you can get Wi-Fi too, if you really needed some sort of connection)

The surroundings of this b&b were beautiful and felt so peaceful and relaxing. Our room backed onto the garden alongside a river so we had lovely views. The house was beautifully decorated but very roomy too. We had the bedroom and a sitting area, where we had tea, coffee, hot chocolate, even a tin of some lovely biscuits. Bottles of water were provided too. Everything you needed was provided.We had our own en suite in the room as well.
 I just felt like I was at home, I didn't feel stressed in anyway which can sometimes happen to me, but it was quite the opposite here. We were made to feel very welcome by a lady called Gill who greeted us as we pulled up. We were shown around the house and to our rooms and all facilities were shown to us.

Our room was just lovely, it was cleaned daily and always looked presentable. I really cant fault it. I could stay here over and over again!

We were given the option of cooked breakfast everyday, or a selection of fruit & yoghurt or even a selection of cereals too. Fresh orange juice was on the table with coffee!

Nothing was too much trouble for Gill and Darren, they were always very chatty and gave excellent recommendations to both myself and my partner and to my parents too.
We had full use of the conservatory where in the evenings we played cards & scrabble with a couple of glasses of wine! Perfect evenings. On one evening Gill had even made a lemon drizzle cake for us to enjoy.

There is a small section in the house where they keep plenty of books and leaflets that you can take up to your room and read. She has plenty of things to offer.

There were also a couple of pubs that we tried for food and drinks. One of them also recommended by Gill which was the Racecourse Inn is a lovely gastro pub. We had a lovely meal there with excellent service by all of the staff, again felt very relaxed and homely inside.

I really cant complain about the accommodation and the area. It was fantastic and would highly recommend if your thinking of somewhere quiet and pretty to stay to try the Berrio Bridge house bed & breakfast.

I have tried not to pack this post with too much information, as I feel the pictures show this place off enough, but I do hope you enjoyed it and if you come across from trip advisor or any other link I hope you also take a trip :)

Keep an eye out for a follow on post on some of the places we visited while we stayed in Cornwall.
