When I book a hotel for a short break in the UK, I always try and book a small boutique hotel, something as far removed from the large corporate chain hotels, as possible.
My best friend lives in St Ives Cornwall, a truly beautiful part of the UK and although we sometimes stay with her when we visit or camp in our trusty VW campervan, its sometimes the comfort of a hotel that you need. The perfect hotel that I’ve recently heard about is Artist Residence in Penzance Cornwall.
The hotel is owned by Charlotte Newbury and Justin Salisbury and as well as this lovely small hotel in Penzance they also co own a further two hotels in Brighton and Pimlico London.
Beautifully stylish and furnished with finds from salvage yards and antique shops, they offer dining and bar facilities with the home comforts and informal atmosphere, that makes them feel like a home from home. They have, it seems, all the right things in all the right places!
