We arrived at Higher Faugan to a warm welcome from the host, Doug. The first thing we noticed was the beautiful rural environment that the guest house is set in. Doug showed us to a suite (room 1) which he had upgraded us to free of charge, and spent 10 minutes talking us through the area and nearby attractions and... More

Our room (room 1, the suite) was spacious, tastefully decorated and immaculately presented. The bed was comfortable, the WiFi free, and we were given keys so we could come and go. There was a microwave, kettle, Cafetiere, toaster and fridge in a mini-kitchen, and we were provided with milk, apple juice, fruit, yoghurts, individually-wrapped white and brown bread and chocolate...

I spotted this guest house on Expedia and fell in love with it. My high expectations were more than met. Doug is a kind and thoughtful host and checked our arrival times after a long journey to ensure he was there to greet us. As we leave this morning after two nights here celebrating my ten year old son's birthday... More

This is an old house that has been converted to accommodation some time ago. We stayed for two nights in late Sept 2013. The room we had overlooked the front yard and was spacious and well appointed. I think we paid around AUD$180 per night but I think that the routine price of that room could be quite a bit... More

The owners didn't make us feel very welcome on arrival, but the rooms were beautifully decorated and of a high standard which took the edge of the poor welcome. They offer a complementary continental breakfast which you prepare yourself which was okay but could have been a lot better. I felt the house and rooms though beautiful lacked personality and...

This was our second time staying at the Higher Faugan and this time was as impressive as the first. It is very clean, well laid out; quiet and the rooms are done to a high standard. While there is no restaurant on site, none is needed. We booked two full size suites which has a kitchen and everything needed to... More

We stayed in Higher Faugan for three nights. From the beginning till the very end Higher Faugan makes you feel at home (or even better!). First of all, the host – Doug is always willing to help, shows you the room giving you a lot of details of the history of the house and thoroughly tells you how everything works.... More

We have stayed several times at Higher Faugan House it is always very enjoyable. What a treat to stay in a beautiful country house hotel by the sea, very near to some of the best things available in that area such as St Michael's mount, Mousehole, Porth Curno and the Minnack Theatre. It is a lovely house and was originally... More
