Tired from travelling by bicycle, I found the room very comfortable and the food superb. Our hosts could not have been more generous with their time and advice; they went out of their way to look after me. It didn't apply to me, but I noted that Lower House caters especially for artists.

This is our very favorite guest house. The owners are welcoming and are two very interesting people. We were extremely comfortable in our beautiful bedroom and our en suite bathroom was superb. We also love the paintings done by our host, Tessa and her family. Peter and Tessa's breakfasts are delicious.

What a brilliant week with Tessa and Peter at their welcoming, warm house and studio. Everything was thought about - cosy bed, unbelievably delicious food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), as well as all you might need to get the very most out of an art course. Tessa is a superb artist and teacher; now I am home, I am realise... More

Beautiful warm, clean, cozy rooms filled with Tessa's art work which add something special. As a foodie I have to say the food rates in my top ten! Sea trout cooked to perfection, lunches almost too good to eat in their presentation. All meals are lovingly created, and made of the finest quality ingredients including veg from a nearby allotment.... More

What a way to relax! wonderful B&B in the Tamar valley with a chance of an art course where you can be completely engrossed in creating something. Your hosts here at Callington are perfect. Tessa tends to all your art needs and Peter looks after the rest, a hearty breakfast and tasty dinner. We took a family of six and... More

My daughter and I went on a six day mixed media course. This included time in Tessa's wonderful studio and time out visiting the local beaches and moors for inspiration. All materials are provided unless you want to take some of your own. Plenty of help and guidance when required and plenty of books for study. Our room was en... More

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.

I went on a mixed media art course here as a special birthday treat. 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

Another visit to Lower House and Peter and Tessa - sadly we could only stay with them this time for 1 evening - clearly not enough. Our 7th visit I think this weekend and we are almost treated as family which Is lovely. Pretty and comfortable rooms with lovely large bath towels and toiletries. Super breakfast to set us up...
