I hope you’re keeping well. We’re keeping everything crossed that domestic tourism gets the green light to open up from 4 July – the team at Talland Bay Hotel are back and ready to take bookings for this summer:
Fresh from appearing in Channel 4 TV show Bake Off: the Professionals, head chef Nick Hawke is back at the helm and ready to welcome guests at the Talland Bay Hotel in Cornwall, as soon as the government gives the go ahead.
Airing on Tuesday nights at 8pm, series three sees Nick and Talland Bay Hotel’s pastry chef Paul Beasley join other chefs from top hotels, restaurants and small businesses competing to be crowned best patisserie team in Britain. The duo feature in heat two (set to broadcast on 16 June). And although the luxury south coast hotel has been closed during the lockdown, the pair have kept themselves busy baking at home since their TV appearance.
As well as enjoying the talents of the kitchen team, holidaymakers in need of some much overdue R&R can look forward to holing up in one of Cornwall’s most serene spots. Tucked away in a sleepy hamlet with nothing but the sound of bird song and stunning ocean views, boutique Talland Bay Hotel provides the perfect quiet haven for those in search of sea air, solitude and plentiful space. For anyone ready to brave a refreshing dip, the secluded cove is a five-minute stroll down the lane.
For ultimate spaciousness book one of the Superior Sea View Rooms – such as Room 9 with a private balcony – or a Garden Suite, complete with separate lounge area and access to your own garden with private terrace. When the hotel re-opens guests will be able to take breakfast in bed and either order room service or choose from three reception areas in which to enjoy their evening meal. There’s also the option to dine on the sheltered south facing terrace, looking out over the sub-tropical gardens to the sea, or in one of the new beach huts dotted around the grounds.
New for 2020, the hotel is now offering one of its largest Garden Suites and the owner’s bungalow as self-catering properties. Tucked away at the rear of the property, the cottage consists of a double bedroom and spacious, open-plan lounge and kitchen area while the bungalow boasts an open-plan lounge and kitchen plus two en suite bedrooms.
The hotel is offering a risk-free booking promise for Summer 2020: Guests can reserve rooms with no payment required until the hotel re-opens. If the hotel has not re-opened by the time a booking arrives, it will just automatically be cancelled with no charge.
A 3-night summer indulgence break costs from £420 per room per night (£490 in a Superior Sea View Room) including a G&T on arrival featuring the hotel’s own blend of locally-distilled gin, homemade chocolates and fizz waiting in your room, three-course dinner each evening, and breakfast in bed with homemade marmalade and freshly squeezed orange juice. (Valid July-September.)
