Cross Close House is everything a B&B should be and more and Val and Alex Lister, the owners, perfect hosts. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the atmosphere welcoming. The breakfast options are varied and the full English breakfast is cut above the norm as the portions are large and Val uses her own free range eggs. We were... More

We decided on 3 nights to visit South Cornwall in the middle of a dreary and depressing November and after a day in Trago Mills I was just losing the will to live--and the prospect of unpacking and exchanging the usual pleasantries filled me with dread.Well--how wrong can you be--Val and Alex were the perfect hosts and greeted us like...

Welcomed with cream tea by friendly hosts Val and Alex. Whole place immaculate, warm, clean and comfortable. You can have as little as toast or as much as a large plateful of cooked usual English breakfast choices. This is apart from toast with its varied accompaniments. Possession of a front door key means you can come and go as you... More

the only drawback I found was that it was located right on a busy A road - so be careful when you set off for a day trip. If they're not busy, one of the owners will see you out. The breakfasts are very good and varied. Nothing negative to note.

I enjoyed my original stay with Val and Alex so much that I went back again when I visited Cornwall. This is always a risk in case you are disappointed and the memories are spoiled. However, if anything, this time was even better. I felt so welcome as I was greeted with a cream tea and relaxed in their lovely... More

Warm welcome and Cornish Tea, room clean and beautiful quilt and matching curtains. Bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the quilt (as it was the coldest the south coast has had this year) was amazing. Breakfast was freshly cooked with local produce including their own chickens eggs and homemade marmalade.

Cross Close House has to be one of the nicest B&Bs I've ever experienced. We were welcomed with a delicious cream tea, and things got better from there on in. The room was comfortable and well appointed, the sitting room available to the guests was lovely and had a great range of info about local attractions, as well as a... More

Val and Alex were really welcoming. The room was restful and had everything we needed - home from home! The breakfast menu was wide ranging and food was beautifully cooked. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more.

We chose the Cross Close Guest House (www.crossclosehouse.co.uk) because of two things: - firstly because it is well-located centrally to several attractions, eg the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Padstow, Looe & Polperro - all within around 30 minutes reach by car - secondly because of the good recommendations that we read on TripAdvisor We travelled down from Lancashire...
