Portloe

August 22, 2011

It's been a bit of a technological nightmare today at work so what better way to chill out than revisiting the calm of Portloe on the Roseland peninsula. Mr K and I found this sleepy little village five years ago purely by chance; I was actually looking for Polperro, could only remember the village began with a 'P' so directed Mr K in the totally wrong direction; what can I say, I have absolutely no sense of direction but a great spirit for adventure so we discovered Portloe and the Lugger Hotel instead of Polperro. I decided then and there that one day we would return and stay at the Lugger; this year it finally happened. The village is tiny and totally relaxing, the total antithesis of busy crowded Padstow. I also loved the little touches in the Hotel like the freshly baked cookies and brownies left every day in our room and the hot chocolate and marshmallows every night along with the following day's weather forecast. In actual fact we were always too stuffed after dinner to even contemplate hot chocolate but it was a nice thought, and the weather forecast was useful given that there was no mobile signal or internet. The first day we arrived we had to climb up the coastal path to get a signal; Mr K standing on a rock sending a message to the girls, we didn't bother after that, it's actually very nice to be cut off from technology...
