We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The room and attahced bathroom were perfect, the Location quiet yet within easy reach of sights and places to eat. Barbara and Mark were very hospitable, providing us with helpful tips on sights and places to eat. We especially enjoyed the breakfast specials. After looking at the very beautiful self-catering cottages as well, we consider... More

We stayed in the B&B accommodation. Warm welcome and a real attention to detail. The room was immaculate and the breakfasts were a real treat. We would thoroughly recommend this idyllic, peaceful away from it all gem .

What makes the Roundhouse is not just the accommodation but rather the proprietors, Barbara and Mark. we have stayed in many establishments, but rarely except for the top end hotels do you get such lovely small and personalised touches - welcome drink on arrival and every afternoon afterwards, welcome note in room. They both make you feel very welcome and... More

We booked The Dairy for our mini moon and we were not disappointed. A beautiful cottage, immaculately presented with everything you could possibly need. Both the indoor space and the gardens are beautiful here and it's a wonderfully relaxed environment. Barbara makes you feel immediately at home and we were greeted with a lovely cream tea as well as a... More

We booked this B & B 3 months ago as my sister was celebrating a 'significant' birthday at a nearby hotel. What a find! The owners Barbara and Mike made us very welcome, we were offered tea and scones on arrival and shown to our lovely room The Minack. This is the smaller of the two rooms, however perfectly adequate... More

We had the smaller double room - the Minack, but I had already fallen in love with the place and booked it, as the larger room, the Fal, had already been taken - and that was some 3 months ahead! We had to unpack as we moved in, but we were staying for 5 nights, so that was fine. Plenty... More

We found this b & b on tripadvisor and due to the reviews booked it. The gardens were a marvelous entry to the house. Barbara greeted us with tea, scones, clotted cream and jam. We stayed in the beautifully appointed Fal room with a king bed and two setting chairs. The room had windows on three sides and was airy... More

There is really hardly any need to write this review as all the others say it all - beautiful location, very peaceful, set in lovely gardens. The two B&B rooms are of very high quality with extremely comfortable beds, comfy seating, dressing table, wardrobe and beautifully appointed ensuites, and a good selection of teas and coffee (decaf cafetiere included!).

We just returned from a wedding on the Roseland Peninsula, and we stayed at the Roundhouse. What a wonderful place. Barbara and Mark oculd not have been more helpful and welcoming, even reuniting us with our car the morning after the night before!
