    I came with my 3 teenager boys (16-13-11). Mrs. Nula at the reception was very helpful and friendly. Helps us to get bicycles, and timings to go to Minack theatre and recommend us places to eat. It's clean, in a beautiful farm, very friendly.

    Stayed here one night before heading down to Land's End to start our big cycle ride. Very clean, helpful staff, great breakfast and secure and simple bike storage. Beds are very comfy and very secure rooms. Would definitely recommend!
