We stayed here at the end of June and the hospitality was amazing. You could choose from a variety of hot and cold breakfast options and they were really flexible with times. If you're worried about the bathroom not being an en-suite, don't be. You're in your own corridor and there would never be any other parties in house at... More

This B&B has got to be one of the best in the UK. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. Our room just perfect, and the breakfast choice was excellent as was the food. In a perfect position in Helston for touring The Lizard and all compass points, you can capture so many places to visit without having to... More

A warm, welcoming, immaculate family home was made all the better by Pete and Marjorie. From the homemade shortbread, carefully thought through facilities to the docile cuddles from their dogs made for this very happy holiday traveller. A delightful place and wonderful people. Not to be missed.

Our stay with Marjorie and Peter was lovely. Quite apart from the comfortable rooms and luscious food, our hosts were more than welcoming. Every detail was attended to and we were treated like royalty. I can highly recommend this B&B.

I was in Helston for work but took a few extra days in Cornwall. Hollow Tree House was a place to stay. If you are looking for boutique chic then don't go but if you are happy with old fashioned comfort, a cosy bed, a lovely outlook onto the garden and a delicious breakfast then you wont be disappointed, in...
