We stayed here as our base of operations for our walking holiday in Cornwall in May of 2015. The location was excellent-- just outside the small village of St. Agnes, nestled among rolling farms and within walking distance of the coastal path. Quiet and relaxing. It was centrally located on the peninsula to make touring all parts of Cornwall convenient.... More

The food and rooms are at the highest level of attainment and delivery and the hotel is to be thoroughly recommended, no matter what part of the year, it is experienced.

Trip Advisor offers very useful information but only works if feedback is fair and honest. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel four times in 2014 alone and many times in previous years. We keep returning because everything about the hotel and the family that own it cannot, in our opinion be faulted. Service levels are unbelievably high... More

This small hotel is ideal in terms of accommodation and food. A high standard of décor and its elevated position gives lovely views from most rooms and the restaurant. The owners take a real interest in guests and are able to support most needs (we have to have gluten free meals). Located outside the large village of St Agnes on... More

Excellent Country House Hotel on the North Cornwall coast. We were welcomed by the hosts John and Lorena. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the food was excellent, we were well looked after. Ideal for exploring Cornwall.

This realy is a Genuine family run hotel. Always a warm welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. Everything about our return stay was faultless. The rooms are immaculately clean, and the food is exceptional. The beacon is also well situated to travel around cornwall and we would not stay anywhere else
