I arrived late however was looked after superbly. I had a really comfortable room that had a nice en-suite shower. I was given a choice for breakfast and asked for scrambled eggs. I encourage you to ask for that as it's wonderful! A great breakfast. You won't be sorry to stay here.

The art course was special there is a large, dedicated studio space adjoining the guest house, with small group, personalised tuition and access to a wide range of art materials and an extensive library on techniques, artists and art history. Painting by numbers it isn't but... More

Callington Art School was an inspirational week and I thank Tessa and Peter wholeheartedly for sharing their delightful home, unsurpassable skills and endless passion. The combination of art school and Guest House provides a perfect balance between learning and serenity. I appreciated the fully equipped and informal art studio that would have inspired even Mr Turner himself! The picturesque 'field'... More

Peter does everything possible to make you welcome to Lower House. The rooms are as well appointed as they can be within the historic building, with every amenity available. The bed in the 'Untitled' room was very comfortable and the breakfast a delight, with so many options to choose from. We will definitely look forward to a return visit.

Charming Georgian style house on the main street. Limited parking so you may have to walk a little way but wel worth it and otherwise the perfect B&B for... More

Spent a weekend there for a mates wedding. Food, room and hosts were excellent. Location very good for getting around. Peter and Susan made us feel really welcome and the art work around the hotel was very good too. Well worth staying there.

I do love the days staying in the lower house for 11 days during 14-24th September. Their conserned care make me feel no lone in a foreign country. We paint and draw outsides sometimes besides the beach with pretty purple cliffs , sometimes just seat between the big ancient stones in moor or besides a lovely beautiful river. When we... More

I travelled all the way from New Zealand to attend one of Tessa's art courses in early June. I stayed at their B&B and wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be a wonderful experience, the food by master chef Peter was amazing, the generous and art tuition and guidance by Tessa was way above my expectation, the... More
