Stayed for 2 nights in this lovely comfortable b&b. Very convenient for visiting family in Mevagissey. We stayed in the Blue Room - a very clean, quiet, well equipped room overlooking the old harbour, beach and countryside. Wendy and Malcolm were very friendly and the breakfast very good. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a lovely B&B set in a idyllic village near St Austell. The room was clean with great facilities. I stayed in the pink room and it was lovely. It is close to a lot of attractions like the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. There are a couple of places to eat in the village or... More

Gem of a BB in a wonderful location. Short walking distance to beach and well located to visit the Lost Gardens and Eden Project. Hosts are wonderful with good sized rooms all looking onto the sea. VERY quiet and peaceful if that is what you require (like us!).

Wendy & Mel gave us a warm welcome and looked after us very well as others have commented. We stayed in the Pink Room which has a good view across the bay and the... More

Our four night stay at the Ancient Shipbrokers was part of our Golden Wedding celebrations, the cost of which was a gift from our daughters and their families. Directions supplied were very accurate and we were met on arrival with a warm welcome from Mel who helped us with our luggage up to our room. We stayed in the Cream... More

We had great views from our room and delicious cooked breakfast every morning and what ever you wanted our hosts bent over backwards to please. I would like to say if i ever return to... More

No problem finding it, but beware Higher End is exactlyt that. The road is practically vertical and you go round a left hand corner and it flattens at the top where there is parking. Our car is set quite low so we just managed ti, but if we still had low profiles on it would have been a struggle. We... More
