Located just outside Padstow, this place is a gem of a hotel. We had B&B only, as wanted to eat-out, but breakfast was superb and very much 'home made'. Rooms well furnished and unique and for us a blessed relief no TV in room (Phew!) Quiet and totally the place to have 'down time' Loved it in every respect.

What a fantastic establishement! We ( 4 Ladies) we spent our May Bank Holiday at the "Swallow Cottage" ( private cottage in the grounds) and only can highly recommend the cottage. We were very surprised at the size of this cottage, it looks very small from the outside but inside, just WOW! Breakfast was taken at the main house. This... More

My husband and I stayed at this delightful B&B last weekend for 2 nights. We were greeted by the charming owner and shown around the Manor. Our room was The Butler's Room on the top floor and I loved it - views over the garden one side and a farm over the other. Lovely ensuite and plenty of hanging and... More

My sister and I stayed 3 nights to be able to experience the Mayday celebrations in nearby Padstow. Though neither of us is a driver it was possible to use taxis/buses to get around. The house is beautiful - a former rectory - with lovely interiors full of art and fresh flowers. At this time of year the garden had... More

The south room is very comfortable with a very large on suite. It has a large bath and a double shower. The room has a great view of the... More

I was on a weekend getaway and on my own when I stayed in Molesworth Manor. I could not have found a more suitable place for me. I was made to feel at home and the owners took care of my every need. Made me feel really special!!

Rented the Cottage annexe which was excellently fitted out and very cosy (with added benefit of log burner). Had to turn the radiators down!!! Great location for walking along the Estuary to Padstow. Breakfast 'specials' menu which changed each day very well received.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in October and were greeted with a warm welcome. Due to a full house on the first night we stayed in 2 rooms over our stay. The first night we slept in the Housekeepers room. It was very pretty and spotless, but being in the eaves I felt closed in and didn't... More

Lovely house, very nicely furnished and an ideal spot to stay in if you are going around the area. It is also a great place to stay if you are eating in Rick Steins restaurant, very convenient. Great breakfasts and lovely furniture through out the house. The drawing room is a beautiful room to relax in.
