My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights in June. Lovely room, brilliant breakfast and we didn't meet Gail as she was away but Phil was a brilliant host. Great position as well to explore some beautiful places.

I cannot recommend this B&B more highly. We arrived late and weary and were treated like valued guests and friends despite only staying a night - we were travelling for business. We were offered food and drink as we had not had a chance to stop on the way and in the morning after a delicious breakfast Gail drove us... More

Very welcoming owners, gorgeous setting with a seaview in some rooms. Small bar just down the road too, which came in very handy. Great location for exploring South and Western Cornwall, pretty good price for a double room too. Breakfast was lovely as well. Would go back for sure.

Stayed here for two nights; excellent facilities and the owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. No mobile phone reception here, like lots of places in Cornwall, but the owners offered me use of their landline. Very comfortable warm room with fantastic views over the fields to the sea beyond. Very quiet. Nice big shower room. Offered to... More
