The Cream of Cornwall
Here at Sail Lofts luxury accommodation in St Ives we love to fly the local flag and where possible always hunt out the best local suppliers so we can give our guests the cream of what Cornwall has to offer. We use a range of local suppliers and it would be impossible to list them all so we have picked a few of our favourites to highlight just why we can’t get enough of them, much to our waistlines detriment I might add…
St Ives Bakery
No trip to Cornwall is complete without at least one Cornish Cream Tea and when you check-in to Sail Lofts luxury apartments in St Ives you get just that. Awaiting you on the kitchen table is all the ingredients for a traditional cream tea and of course the scones had to be just right. During the tastings we sunk our teeth into the divinely light and devilishly good scones from St Ives Bakery and we were sold. Without doubt, the guys at St Ives Bakery have created a little piece of spongy heaven that melts in the mouth and nothing else came close. Their pasties top our pole too, and trust me; we’ve tried a few!
One of our newer suppliers, Baker Tom supply us with all the bread for our luxury welcome hampers and our guests have been raving about this newest addition. This artisan bread is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of crust and a lovely light inside and is delicious smothered in salted Cornish butter from Trewithen Dairy, which conveniently, is also included in your welcome hamper.
Tucked away on a farm in Penzance, Polgoon Vineyard produces artisan ciders, wines and juices and supplies us with its beautiful Elderflower Pressé for our welcome hampers. Cool and crisp, a bottle of this refreshing nectar will be chilling in the fridge ready to refresh you when you arrive. Join us over Christmas and try the mulled cider – we may have enjoyed it a little too much this festive season!
In 2015 we made a number of improvements to our luxury self-catering apartments in St Ives but my absolute favourite was the introduction of gorgeous blankets from Perranporth based Atlantic Blankets. These beautifully crafted, visually stunning and sumptuously soft blankets really add the wow factor to our bedrooms and add a vibrant splash of colour that add a really cheery feel.
There are so many other fantastic suppliers we work with and these are just a few of our favourites. We hope you enjoy them too.
