Our 2nd stay since JJ & Lynne took over & what great owners they are. Nothing is too much trouble for them & they make you feel very welcome. We stayed for a week this time & the abbey makes a great base for exploring Cornwall. The rooms are clean & very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent with everything cooked... More

What a gem of a B&B. Lynn and JJ obviously love the building and its history. My wife and I stayed for a short walking holiday. Lynn and JJ could not have made us feel more welcome. They helped tremendously with the logistics of our walk. If you are thinking of walking the Saints Way or indeed just visiting the... More

Very nice accommodation, clean and well run with friendly owners. Convenient for getting to the Eden Project and many other places in Cornwall. Would definitely recommend a stay. Situated in a very peaceful setting and were made very welcome.

Very good value for money. Good location for exploring Cornwall - north, south and moor. Interesting building, full of character as is the landlord who likes to share his experiences with you. We had a slight problem when one of our group wanted to stay in his room all day but was not allowed to as the owners wanted to... More

This old hotel is right next to the Abbey ruin, it was like 10 metres from my bedroom window! Really different and memorable. The inside was very dated but there were new (very friendly) owners who may be able to make more of this place.

Business trip. Had a small double which is outside of the main house but still attached to the building. Female alone I felt safe and it was extremely clean. Very friendly and helpful owners managing the property perfectly, thanks Lyn and JJ. Breakfast was magnificent, well done all involved. Will definitely stay here again when down for work or pleasure.

Booked at very last minute an hour before we arrived which was 11.30pm. We stayed in a separate wing which was very private suiting us down to the ground. Very clean and very welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful all be it brief stay. Jo and Charlie King

We stayed here for 2 nights with the plan to explore the Cornish coastline. 30 minutes from Padstow and 1 hour from St Ives. Plus a 700 yr old converted abbey sounded cool. The grounds were beautifully restored, our host JJ was welcoming, hospitable and helpful with suggestions. Highly recommend and will do so for our friends. Also make sure... More

We decided at the last minute to go away for the weekend so booked St Benets Abbey after checking on trip advisor. The couple who run the Abbey are delightful and good fun. The room was clean and a good size, with a super view of the old tower. The building is amazing, very old but well looked after, with... More

We stayed here for a night whilst tripping around Cornwall in April. Absolutely loved it here and if we hadn't had to be somewhere the next night, would have stayed longer. Lynn greeted us when we arrived and gave us the option of a room inside or the external room, and we went with the external room. The room was... More
