We stayed here on our way to a holiday in Cornwall, and arrived in pouring rain. Tea and cake soon made us feel better and the stylish, comfortable room and warm welcome helped. Dinner was delicious and plentiful, and the ambience was so friendly - guests all chatting to each other and to the hosts. They are clearly in the right business - they know how to entertain guests and obviously enjoy it. We were quite envious of those who had taken advantage of the great walking in the area, and resolved to do so ourselves in future. Apart from the enjoyment, it would make me feel justified in eating so well! I didn't sleep very well but that was because of the wind and rain rather than any failing in the room.
