Carolyn is a great host. On the night I arrived my taxi driver left me in the wrong place Carolyn came to find me. I only stayed one night as I was attending an interview for Falmouth University, she even very kindly drove me to my interview the next day!! Wonderful hospitality, warm welcome, attention to detail. I can't comment...

We know the area and needed a base to explore from, a couple of railway journeys perhaps and a St Ives day out etc. Well, what a stunning house, B&B with authentic history included. Beautifully tended garden and a very warm and chatty welcome. All very tasteful and extremely comfortable. Joy!

We had a lovely stay at Prospect House. Carolyn was a delightful host who made us very welcome, making a tray of tea on arrival and nothing was too much bother for her. The house had loads of character and the garden was a dream to sit in after a day's wondering around Falmouth. Would certainly recommend this B&B to...

Just enjoyed a lovely four day break in Penryn at the Prospect House b&b. Very clean and tidy and plenty of free parking.

This is a delightful and unusual establishment in a well preserved Georgian building. Well located for both Falmouth and Penryn. Carolyn is a terrific host and provides a real personal touch.
