Comfortable bed, well equipped room of a decent size, electric shower - OK. Excellent breakfasts, though you do have to fill in a menu the night before. The house is on a hill leading on the main road through Lostwithiel so there can be some traffic noise. Less than I'm used to at home. Chris and Heidi really are unusually... More

Chris and Heidi could not have been more welcoming, even stepping out in the rain to guide us into the parking space and help us inside with our luggage. The room was lovely and decorated with an eye for detail in keeping with the period of the property (Victorian), with a king size bed, a leather sofa and a spacious... More

Breakfast was a selection of fruit, cereals, toast or a full English. The produce was of a high quality, cooked to a very high standard to what you would expect from any... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We had one of the rooms off the main house with its own kitchen. This is a delightful property and the hosts are excellent. Breakfast the next morning was fabulous.

Very handy B & B for tourist attractions in the area. Very comfortable and good breakfast. Clean comfortable room if anything, too warm. Storage heater on by day and was not needed. and very good en-suite. Everything worked. No complaints. Very friendly and relaxed.

Wow what a place. Very friendly service and lots of little extras like a DVD player in each room with a snug which has books, DVDs and local information in that you can borrow. We were concerned as to what the room may be like as they only had a standard double left but we had no reason to be.... More
