My website is now rather out of date, for which, many apologies. Hopefully it will soon be correct, as I have just emailed the new details to the person who manages it.

Following the success of the spring offers, we are again offering three nights for the price of two, as long as evening meals are taken each night at the normal price of £17.50. This will run between the beginning of October and the end of November. Between December and the end of March 2008, our winter prices will apply, ie. £27 pppn for bed and breakfast for the en-suite rooms and £22 for the standard room, except for during the Christmas period, see below.

We will once more be offering a Christmas special. This will be for four nights, arrivng on Sunday 23rd December and it will be part full board and include a bottle of wine per room. The cost will remain the same, at just £275 per person. A single supplement applies and there will be a reduction for the standard room.

People often ask for more details of the rooms at Michael House. This is something I must address on the website proper. Meanwhile, here are some photos of room 1 and views from it. It is a double en-suite room, with a super kingsize bed, or it can have two single beds. The bathroom is fairly small, but has a full size bath, from which you can have a glimpse of the sea in the distance!

I will do a separate blog entry for each room, plus an extra of other bits and bobs.

August in Cornwall

If you are wondering about coming to Cornwall this month and staying at Michael House, do give me a ring or email me. There are a few gaps here and there and the weather doesn't look too bad for the next few weeks - no promises of 80 degrees though!

I am getting obsessed with reading blogs. There are some fascinating blogs to read, and each one I look at leads me to others. I particularly like those which are art and craft related, and blogs lend themselves brilliantly to displaying work people have done. So, instead of creating the things I should be making for the fete we have in Treknow in a few weeks, or weeding the garden, I am reading what other people have been doing! There are great ideas out there, such as the Etsy shop online, and people set card making challenges, using a particular theme. I would love to get into that, but am too busy reading the blogs. Oh, and running the guest house.
