Good choice for our B and B stopover. Lots of history and our hosts were working so hard to ensure guests have a comfortable stay. Our room was spotless and the bed linen and towels top quality. High standard breakfast with various options and all cooked to order. A warm welcome from great hosts.

What an absolutely stunning venue, so much History! on arrival our greeting couldn't of been better, a warm and friendly welcome from Lynn and JJ Jones. As we arrived in the afternoon, and it was sunny, we sat in the garden with them and enjoyed a wonderful Cream Tea and we learnt about the Abbey and their plans for the... More

St.Benet's is an ideal place to stay after a day visiting the Eden Project. From making the booking and being welcomed and shown to our room by Lynn I was very impressed. The superior room was large, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was of a very high standard and I was very pleased to be served with fresh cafetiere... More

We stayed here for one night on our way down to Falmouth and arrived late in the evening. The owner was welcoming and sensitive to the fact we might be tired and want to go straight to our room. We were on the ground floor with a view of the tower and were keen to ask JJ about the history... More

Well what can I say? From the outset, JJ & Lynn were more than helpful. We had a dilemma with transport at all ends for our one way (Cycle, Foot & Kayak) trip. JJ offered to drop us at both ends, making sure our vehicle and kit were where we wanted & when. Accommodation perfectly adequate, they joined two rooms... More

We decided to stay at St Benet's Abbey at short notice, having previously stayed there 10 years ago. The booking was handled very efficiently over the phone and we were warmly welcomed on our arrival by owners Lynn & JJ. In the light of another review, we were offered the chatty version or the quiet version of JJ - we... More

We have travelled in Southwest England many times and St. Benet's Abbey is our most memorable and favorite B&B. Lynn and JJ provide a tranquil, welcoming atmosphere at their lovely old abbey. It is set off the road in quiet Lanivet and is the perfect central hub for day trips in any direction in Cornwall. Lands End, Dartmoor Forest, Tintagel,... More
