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

Reading the other reviews here, I think they have said it all. Peter and Tessa are the most amazing hosts, accommodating and welcoming guests as their personal friends. I have enjoyed two fantastic stays with them at Lower House and hope to return next year. Peter's cooking will ensure that you gain several kilos during your stay as all of... More

What a fantastic house! Peter is very welcoming and helpful. The room we had was comfortable and provided a brilliant nights sleep. There is also artwork all over the house, many by Peter's wife, Tessa, and her father, most of which are for sale. Peter also showed us the art studio in the house where they run courses.

This B&B has very good reviews for the simple reason that it IS really good. Peter and Tessa are warm, friendly and welcoming. We were offered tea and biscuits as soon as we arrived and told all about what was on in Callington whilst we were there. We had booked a meal with them (not knowing if much would be... More

We were on a business trip to Callington for one night.and received a very warm welcome from the owners Peter and Tessa Sulston. They could not have been more helpful to my wife and I. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was superb, full... More

A lovely B&B with a very friendly welcome and some beautiful paintings on the walls. Dinner was beautiful and the couple running the B&B were very friendly, helpful, cultured and very interesting to chat to. A very nice and old pub round the corner.

I have stayed at Lower House guesthouse four or five times in the last few years. This is an overdue review. The hosts, Peter and Tessa, are charming and hospitable. The rooms are clean and comfortable with original artwork providing special interest. Breakfast is a real treat - fresh local ingredients perfectly cooked and served. Overall - seriously recommended.
