All the family had a wonderful three nights at Carn Ithen in August. Nigel and Danni were so welcoming and warm. Breakfasts were delicious and accommodation very comfortable. We loved all the art and ceramics! Our hosts' information about the islands was better than any guidebook. We have many happy memories and hope to return soon.

We stayed at Carn Ithen for a week and had a great time. Carn Ithen is located in Old Town, which is around a 15-20 min walk from the Quay where the boat from Penzance docks. It is in a quiet residential road just 50 metres from a lovely beach. There are several places within a few mins walk to... More

Wonderful first stay in Scilly. Danni and Nigel are perfect hosts with great recommendations for sights to see from Nigel and amazing breakfasts from Danni! Could not have stayed in a better b&b and we hope to return

Four of us stayed for 4 nights; our accommodation, hosts and the breakfasts absolutely made our holiday. Nigel and Danni are superb hosts with a wonderful enthusiasm and knowledge of the Islands. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac between a beach and a nature reserve. The house is not that conveniently close to the main town but Golf buggies... More

Excellent accommodation and food, delightful and knowledgeable hosts, within 100 yards of the sea and a nature walk - what more could you ask for?? We wrote in the visitors book "as good as it gets" and it is!

Very nice stay with Nigel and Danni recently. Scilly was beautiful and a great time of year to see the flowers. Nigel's recommendations for the island trips were spot on. Lots of eating choices and easy to get around on foot.

We stayed 5 nights at Carn Ithen at the beginning of May this year. The islands are stunningly beautiful and have an abundance of bird life - one of the main reasons for our visit. We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs and we rate Carn as one of the very best. Our hosts Danni and Nigel were fantastic... More

If a rating of 5 is what we should give for good, clean, comfortable and spacious accommodation, with a good breakfast and in a delightful location only yards from a beach in a sheltered cove, it's still not enough for Carn Ithen! Still to be added are the tasteful modern art work adorning the walls and hosts Danni and Nigel's... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Carn Ithen back in March this year. The islands are the most beautiful you will ever see and it feels like you are abroad with the glorious weather. Both Nigel and Danni who run Carn Ithen were just fabulous. They are both so welcoming and warm and nothing is ever too much trouble.. and... More
