A last minute break in Cornwall to catch the last of the late summer weather was just what we needed and The Bay Talland proved to be an excellent choice for a week away in the unexpectedly warm weather.
The Bay Talland is a development of 42 ultra-modern hillside properties with a pool and leisure facilities and a path to the coastal footpath and down to Talland Bay with its own choice of excellent cafes. 32 is a three bed property on four levels with kitchen and dining upstairs, lounge with double height ceiling on the next level down, an ensuite double and bathroom on the entry level and a twin bunk and another double ensuite below that. All main rooms have doors out to decks.
It's really well equipped and well thought through: washer dryer, loads of storage, amazing double glazing (silent with the doors shut and warm even in the cool evenings. There's huge sofas and a wood burner for lounging evenings and a comprehensively equipped kitchen with seating for eight. Everything we needed and more.
We didn't do much and spend time reading, walking, and in Talland Bay itself - the beach huts at the cafe are the perfect place to write if you don't mind putting on a few pounds! We ventured out to the excellent and scenic 15 Cornwall in Watergate Bay, just about an hour away and toured the local area but can't comment on the delights of much nearby. Looe is convenient for shopping and Waitrose delivery here which covers almost every need!
Stuart and Lynne who run the whole place are great hosts and look after the houses well with their cleaning and maintenance team. There are late offers available but you may just want to find a week or two and book them in advance. You won't be disappointed and it's certainly family friendly for almost any age. It's honestly how we would decorate the house if we owned it and you feel genuinely at home which is high praise for any holiday rental. It's not for you if you're looking for chintz but if you see the pictures and like the idea then it certainly delivers on the promise.
