This is a premier B&B in fine surrounding. Very quiet, just in the nature - a little bit out of the village. Charlayne gave a very warm welcome. We have been there as a family and enjoyed the stay, unfortunately only for two nights on our roundtrip in south England. We would highly recommend this B&B.

First class B and B with lovely views. Very quiet. A very warm welcome from the owners Charlayne and David. A little bit out of the village, but David drove us to to pub/restaurant every evening and collected us after our meal. This was certainly above the call of duty ! We would highly recommend this B and B. Val... More

We made the right choice by staying at Polmena House with our hosts Charlayne & David for our May bank holiday break. After an easy less than 4 hours Motorway (more or less) journey from near Reading, we were enjoying the delights of our Home from Home!

We visited Polmena House in June 2012. Charlayne is a charming and welcoming hostess. Our room was large and very comfortable, with beautiful views over the valley. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Lostwitheil is a lovely town and a great base for day trips to Tintagel and Padstow or the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Fowey.
