We originally booked a bed and breakfast in St Just in West Cornwall, the home of my father’s ancestors. Unfortunately for us and the hosts, the lady became ill and they suggested we book elsewhere, and gave us a couple of options.
We decided to go with our original plan of staying in two different parts of West Cornwall and chose Penzance and Padstow (where some more ancestors came from).
Friends had recommended a B&B in Penzance but that was booked out for our days. One of the recommended B&Bs from the St Just couple was just a few doors down and had a vacancy for 3 nights – booked.
After booking the other 2 nights in Padstow, we got an email from the hosts expressing their inability to provide breakfast during our stay. Disappointing at first, until reading on and seeing that they have arranged for us to have breakfast at a local café - Rick Stein’s café!
