Gilbert Lodge about us Bossiney Bay


The lodge  is  our haven and escape from a busy and at times hectic work life. We never fail to be amazed by the sights and sounds of Cornwall. We love to slow down, kick back, walk, even surf but generally take in the Cornwall air. 

In our opinion, North Cornwall coast has some of the most stunning sea views to rival anywhere we have  travelled in the world- Rugged, wild, stunning views, beautiful beaches and coves. 

We both like a Coastal walk - Tara prefers a circular shorter version than Andrea but is always enticed by a food stop along the way. Tara enjoys taking in the sights with her camera. Andrea loves to spot the surfers down in the coves and daydreams about being able to look as stylish on a board herself one day!
