Just returned from a short stay at this delightful B&B. Lovely welcome by the proprietors, Julie and Graham who were able to give us lots of handy tips and advice on places to visit and see, taking in the best places to eat and drink. Lovely, private room in 'the piggery' which was the loveliest quaint room, clean and comfortable.... More

Graham & Jules are very welcoming at this delightful B&B. The rural setting and spacious rooms are very relaxing and comfortable. Not far from Looe there are plenty of places to visit and great places to eat & drink. It's a great place to base yourself for venture further into Cornwall.

We stayed for 2 nights with our 18 month old daughter and was an enjoyable stay.
