The Boskerris in Carbis Bay – one of our favourite hotels in Cornwall (or anywhere) – has just been sold. Sad for us, as we have stayed several times (usually for birthdays and anniversaries) and love everything about it: the location, the rooms, the views, the terrace, the friendly little bar, the food and – in particular – the owners. Marianne and Jono Basset and family did an amazing job. Perhaps they wanted to escape the madness of the G7 summit, taking place in and around Carbis Bay and St Ives next week (11-13 May 2021). Perhaps they needed a change of scene. The new owners (whoever they are) would be mad to change a single thing. See our guide to seaside hotels. Or visit the website.
