Beautifully presented B&B in heart of Lifton only a short hop from the A30 and within easy reach of many of Devon and Cornwall's places of interest. Stayed for a recent weekend and was made to feel very welcome with nothing too much trouble. Room was very well equipped and spotless, tv a little on the small side but due... More

Tinhay Mill Guest House is a delightful place to stay. The cottage is full of character and charm, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The quiet location is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall and The Moors. Suzanne and Stephen are friendly, welcoming hosts, making our stay even more enjoyable. A hearty breakfast gets the day off to an excellent start,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on the way back from Cornwall to avoid the end of half term traffic and explore the area. Padstow, Boscastle, Tintagel and Bude are all relatively near making this a superb location and convenient for the A30 yet the Guesthouse is in a lovely quiet location. We stayed in the Wolf room which was beautifully... More

We stayed here over the weekend as we were going to a wedding just up the road. We arrived late on the Friday night (about 10.30pm) after a long drive and were greeted with a warm welcome. Our room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable, we had a television and tea and coffee making facilities... More

Needing to attend a business seminar in Lifton, we picked Tinhay Mill for its proximity. We were not disappolnted! So comfortable were we, we stayed two extra nights to explore. Welcome was wonderful, breakfasts superb, room clean, tidy and well appolnted, home from home. What a fantastic little gem. We wish Susanne and Stephen every success in this new venture.... More

Myself, my husband and my parents stayed for 2 nights at Tinhay Mill Guesthouse last weekend. We normally stay at 4/5 star hotels but were going to a family party nearby so decided to give this Guesthouse a chance after reading all the positive reviews. It then turned out that the current owners (Suzanne & Stephen) had taken over only... More

We stayed at the Tinhay Mill Guest House for a week. It was a 'last-minute' pick based on online reviews. We were not disappointed! The room was large, the bed very comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. Despite being the very new owners (only six weeks when we arrived) Suzanne and Stephen Cresswell were very professional and have already stamped... More

My daughter and I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast and it was absolutely wonderful. The room was cozy, clean, quiet and the perfect temperature. The owner was warm and kind and very sensitive to us. She left us alone when we arrived very in a very tired state. Then she seemed to understand just when we were relaxed and... More

We were travelling from John O Groats to Lands End with our son, who was cycling. We stayed just one night and found it to be excellent in every way. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and the breakfast was the best one we had on our journey. The home-made bread was wonderful. Margaret was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough... More
