We stayed at Dorset Farm for just one night; the last of our Cornish holiday, as we wanted to explore a few places nearby including Launceston Castle. John and Vi were very welcoming hosts. The room was a good size. We had a lovely view across the garden and surrounding countryside. The bathroom was modern and clean, with a brilliantly... More

My wife and I stayed here over the August bank Holiday. If you are looking for somewhere quiet to unwind then this is the place. Lovely location albeit about 8 miles or so outside Launceston, but a great base for exploring the East of Cornwall. Bude is only around 14 miles away and we drove to Padstow in an hour.... More

Dorset Farm was recommended to us by friends who live nearby. Vi and Jon made us most welcome and we had a beautiful room and bathroom with lovely views over the garden and farmland beyond. Our only problem was the weather which even Jon and Vi can't sort!

Excellent throughout, will be very hard to beat. Room was very clean with ensuite shower. Good views and lovely hosts. Would definitely use again. Set in lovely grounds in a country setting. Food was excellent with a good choice of items.

My girlfriend and myself visited Dorset Farm for four nights and I must say its a lovely B&B. The rooms are clean (the cleanest I've ever seen), the breakfasts are amazing (especially the poached eggs!) and Jon and Vi are great hosts. Would definitely stay here again. It's perfect for a quiet get away, if I could give it more... More

I have no hesitation on recommending this B&B Jon and Vi are excellent hosts they provide excellent accommodation on suite plus a excellent breakfast with preservatives made by themselves which are so good we bought some. This is close to many places to visit but is so quiet and with the residents lounge when one returns from visits allows one... More

Really nice B&B located on a real working farm. Comfortable, friendly and well located for a wedding we were attending in Lifton. The breakfast was amazing and the staff really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious and the en suite really well decorated and very good shower. Will definitely be staying here again!

A very nice visit here, we wouldn't hesitate to stay again and would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Spotlessly clean and a wonderful breakfast. The fire in the lounge was a nice touch and we were made to feel very welcome. we shall be back next time we are in the area.

Comfortable, friendly, well located, good breakfast, quiet & plenty of parking, we will be back on out next trip, one night not long enough. Good for stop over or a longer stay, central for North Cornwall or Devon.

I would like to score this 4.5/5. A very high quality, classy, professionally run and spotlessly clean B&B. Proprieters John and Vi Bennett are friendly and discrete people who made us feel totally at home. The guest facilities include a lovely conservatory and a timelessly decorated living room with an interesting collection of books including the historic Bude to Launceston... More
