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

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.
