The Good Cornwall Guide Editorial Policy

The reviews on this website are based solely on the experiences of our independent reviewers (details of whom can be found in the Authors section of the site).

Whilst every review will be balanced and an honest account of that independent reviewers personal experience, the reviews will only be published on the site if, and at the sole discretion of the Editorial Board, the GCG can recommend the establishment, person or service reviewed. Where the Editorial Board, on balance, feels the review is not ‘Good’ it will not be published. The GCG is a positive guide recommending the best bits of Cornwall, not a guide of everything in Cornwall. It is a subjective guide and all content will be reviewed by the Editorial Board who has sole discretion to decide whether to include the review or make amendments to the copy.

Editorial Board

The editorial team is directed by Melodie Manners with a bank of freelance writers on hand for content.
