What a beautiful Guest House. Located in a lovely quiet location. We stayed in room 8 which was tastefully decorated with en-suite and all of the little mod cons required. Our room also had a great view of Carbis Bay. Anne made us feel so at home and very welcome from arrival inviting us into the main lounge for a... More

This B&B was an amazing find! We stayed 3 nights over Easter & couldn't have been made more welcome. We were offered tea in the lounge upon our arrival and Anne & John sat and shared their knowledge of the local area, also taking the time to get to know each of us. We were given a key so we...

Excellent location just 10 min walk from the Carbis Bay beach. Anne is an excellent host very helpful with her knowledge of the area and tips for small journeys around the area. Anne even bakes croissants for your breakfast if you wish to have some freshly baked croissant for the morning. I will definitely go back to St Ives and... More

Fantastic location on top of the hill that leads down to Carbis Bay and from there a short 20minute coastal walk to St. Ives. Upon arrival we were met by Anne, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. A selection of breakfast choices were available and... More

My friend and I had travelled down to St. Ives for the first time. We booked a twin room at the mustard tree as the reviews on the whole were excellent. The B&B owners were warm, friendly and welcoming and happy to collect you from the station on arrival. The house is located in a quiet area, it does back... More

Anne and John are a very friendly couple, peaceful, helpful and attentive to their differing guests needs. We had to go down to Carbis Bay for a funeral and booked this B&B last minute, we stayed 3 nights. We have no hesitation in recommending this guest house to anyone. Anne and John are very informative on their area and will... More

I stayed here for prayer and contemplation. I did not know it was a Christian B&B when I booked but from the reviews. All the better for me. Anne and John are very hospitable. They are friendly but also respect clients privacy, they never impose. I stayed in room 6 which was perfect, a double bed, tv, wifi, en suite... More

My friends and I stayed three nights at the Mustard Tree and found the room, food, and conditions just right. Anne was very helpful with directions to the coastal trail, the bus stop is quite convenient, and we appreciated the availability of a computer for guests. Our room was simply and tastefully equipped, and the grounds and garden added a... More

We were a small group of cyclists on a tour of Cornwall who enjoyed a lovely stopover here. The accommodation exceeded expectations in every way- lovely comfy, clean rooms and super breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful, including proving a very secure place for our bikes. Of the 4 Cornwall B and Bs we stayed in this trip... More
