We often stay in Polperro, but this time we thought we'd try somewhere new. Very glad we did too. Fantastic find with really lovely hosts, amazing breakfasts and a good nights sleep. The rooms and the B&B in general were very clean, and it was very good value for money. If the weather had been better I'm sure we would... More

We have just spent a long wknd in Polperro and so far on our many visits to Polperro found this B&B to be the best so far. The breakfast was perfect and to eat in the conservatory with great views made it more relaxed and special. The room we stayed in was very clean and well equipped with no need... More

This delightful little B & B was recommended by a friend and I am so glad they did! We had a king size room at the back which was very spacious. Breakfast was delicious with everything available from full English through to cereals and toast and the breakfast room had lovely views across the valley. Nothing was too much trouble... More

We spent 2 nights here in September. Our double room upstairs was small but very clean and comfortable with a nice outlook over the terrace garden. There was a very good selection of teas and a welcome pot of tea on arrival. The lovely breakfast room downstairs opens onto the garden terrace and was light and cheerful. A delicious breakfast...
