Title says it all. Been here twice in the last month in order to sort out moving to Cornwall. Don't need to say anymore. Best b&b bar none in Cornwall, maybe England. Truly astonished at the price I paid for luxury. Lovely folks and great breakfast. You will not regret pitching up here. Enjoy this hidden gem.
