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

A great place to stay. John and Vi were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Dorset Farm is ideal for visiting North Cornwall and East Devon and help was at hand with suggestions of places to visit. Their suggestions for places to eat out in the evenings were very good.

After a one night stay breaking up the journey from Kent to the far west of Cornwall this B&B is a great find. Not too far off the A30 but in a lovely peaceful part of north Cornwall. Set in beautiful grounds this typical Cornish farm looks austere from the outside but this doesn't reflect the warm welcome offered by... More

We were so lucky to find this beautiful house in the countryside so close to Launceston, where we explored family history links and enjoyed a local literary festival. The hosts were warm, welcoming and extremely helpful, the house has an interesting history and is elegantly and comfortably furnished. Breakfasts gave us a choice that was just right. This is the...

We have just returned from a very pleasant couple of nights at Dorset Farm. The farm is located amidst rolling fields, and guests were encouraged to explore the scenic surroundings and make the most of the rural location. John and Vi were very friendly and made excellent hosts, and even got up to make me an extra-early breakfast one day,... More

Dorset Farm is a lovely B&B out in the country near Launceston in Cornwall. John and Vi are excellent hosts willing to go the extra bit to make you feel welcome. When we first went to find the b&b we thought it was maybe a bit out of the way but actually we found this not to be a problem.... More

Been meaning to write this review for so long, it's well overdue ! What a find this place was and what a lovely couple John and Vi are. It was magical to wake up in the country. Nothing was too much bother for them. We even had home made jam at breakfast. Would recommend this place highly and will go... More

Everything about this B&B is first class. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, comfortable and of the highest standard. Jon and Vi were lovely hosts, always ready to help and chat about your day without being obtrusive. The breakfast was delicious, served in a beautiful dining room overlooking the garden. Perfect!

A top notch accommodation. This is a beautiful country home in a lovely setting, and one of the two best B&B's we stayed in during a 30 day holiday in the UK. Our bedroom was large, very nicely furnished, and the beds were most comfortable. We were especially impressed with the modern, well appointed bathroom. The breakfast was excellent as... More

We stayed here for the bank holiday weekend, arriving on the Friday and departing on the Monday. After reading nothing but good reviews about this B&B, I was anxious for it to live up to the reviews. And it did. Set in the beautiful countryside, it couldn't have been more relaxing if it tried. The only noises around were the... More
