I love collecting recipes, whether it’s ones that I have put together or recipes that…
We have been lucky enough to visit Uphill Manor a couple of times over the past couple of years, each time we visit Cornwall we have a night here as a halfway point. It’s a stop be look forward to for a number of reasons, great rooms, impressive looking building, grounds and an amazing breakfast.
The building is full of history and dates back to to 1805 and is one of the most historic buildings in the area. There are a total of 5 guest rooms all of which are a great size with en suite bathrooms, the room we stayed in had a very large bath which was very nice!
Each room has a TV and tea/coffee facilities, they even have candles and matches by the bath in case you want a relaxing soak. Needing the internet? Not a problem! They provide high speed wifi in all rooms and it doesn’t cost anything extra.
Recently some of the rooms were redecorated and the decor really does fit well with the feel of the building, including a grand wood staircase. As well as the bedrooms there are a number of rooms that you can sit down and enjoy a good book or the snooker room that has a full sized snooker table.
As Uphill Manor is a bed and breakfast they don’t offer lunch or an evening meal, we arrived fairly late so got a pizza delivered. They are however more than happy to give directions to recommended places to eat, Weston-Super-Mare is only a 3 minute drive as well so there are plenty of options when looking for somewhere to eat.
One of the things we enjoy doing whilst here is visiting the honesty bar, its a room situated on the ground floor that has plenty of seating and a wide range of drinks. They have a nice collection of non alcoholic and alcoholic drinks that you can enjoy. As it is an honesty you simply mark down what you drink and settle the bill on checkout.
Even though they don’t offer lunch or dinner, each morning they offer an incredible breakfast. The owners do an incredible breakfast which includes cereals along with toast, there is then a menu to select a warm breakfast. I chose the full English breakfast, with this you then get a choice on how you want the eggs cooked. I went for the poached eggs and they were cooked perfectly.
After breakfast if you don’t need to rush to your next destination you should check out the grounds, we had a quick look around but didn’t get chance to explore it all. There is an impressive 17 aches worth of grounds to venture in, perfect for when the weather is nice.
The location of Uphill Manor is ideal, it’s just a 3 minute drive outside of the main commercial part of Weston-Super-Mare but close enough to get to enjoy all of the attractions such as the restaurants, pubs, sandy beach and the Grand Pier.
If you are in the area I couldn’t recommend this bed and breakfast enough, it is a great building with comfortable beds. The Bed and Breakfast is perfect for families, couples or even when visiting on a business trip.

I have enjoyed cooking for some years now, its one of the only things that I can do that makes me relaxed and forget any worries I have. I love trying new foods and visiting restaurants. Other hobbies include writing, game development and work :)
