All told, staying at the Nanscawen Manor is more like staying in someone's private house rather than a normal hotel. We found this delightful retreat thanks to the advice of a car park attendant at the nearby Eden Project. The entry off the road comes upon one fairly suddenly, with an uphill narrow drive past rhododendron and camellia, in flower... More

Thank you for your review. You of course were staying in a private house and not a hotel. There are many advantages staying at a b&b as opposed to a hotel. It is personal and friendly and the owners are really happy to have you in their home. If you need help there is generally someone around to help, but... More

A grand old manor house set high up the hill, far back from the road and within a short distance of the Eden Project . Our room was large with views over the valley, a huge four poster bed and all the extras like a spa bath, TV, etc. You can also have the use of the heated pool and... More

By happy chance we were booked into this lovely accommodation by the helpful ladies at the Tourist information office. The Manor House is a very lovely old and historic building in a perfect, tranquil setting very close to the Eden Project, which was just perfect for us. Great ambience created by our welcoming, congenial and knowledgeable host Keith. Fantastic breakfasts... More

Nanscawen is a good bed and breakfast and the owner is a very welcoming man. My room was very comfortable with an excellent bed. Location is excellent if you enjoy walking (coastal path and luxulyan valley). If you are looking for some peace and quiet its also great. However, this peace and quite is interrupted every single morning with the... More

Thank you for your review, and pleased you had a good stay. I do enjoy having visitors to stay it's a happy thing to do. My help in the mornings 'Sandra' arrives just before 8.00am I am sorry the happy cornish chatter at the time of breakfast disturbed you in bed. In an area where the only sounds are owls... More

We have stayed here twice before so were not surprised on our return to be welcomed once again by Keith's warm hospitality. The location of this charming tranquil place on one side of the Luxulyan valley is hard to beat. At night all you can hear are the occasional fox or owl and in the morning birdsong. Our room as...

The Manor House is set back from the road up a long drive-way. Set in large grounds it is very peaceful with good views over the valley and is a perfect base for exploring the Eden Project, local National trust properties and the southern part of Cornwall. Rooms were spotlessly clean - nice touch of fresh flowers on the dressing... More

This was my partner and I first trip to Cornwall and we'll be returning, if nothing else just to stay here again! The house itself is so peaceful and full of character (luckily without any pretentiousness from either host or house). You step in the front door and are greeted by a wonderfully warm woodburner, a roaring fire and a... More
