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

The Tinhay Mill Guesthouse is a very comfortable, well appointed and exceedingly well run establishment, Close to many attractions in the area, a good stop over, out of the way, noise & bustle if you want some peace and quiet, with some great walks nearby. Plenty of parking, large and comfortable rooms, breakfast is a real treat.

We stayed in Tinhay Mill for one night, we picked this B&B based on the reviews. So first let me warn you that there is no restaurant! From the reviews we thought there was a restaurant (a very good one) and in fact that was not true anymore. For some reason they closed it and not it is just a... More

On the devon/Cornwall border not far from Launceston this guest house has lovely clean rooms and above all Margaret the owner cannot do enough for you. I was there for 5 nights and cannot praise it highly enough.

End of a hard day's cycling was rewarded by a superbly appointed king-size room which I had to myself for a very reasonable £60. Safe, secure accommodation for my bike, a superb breakfast and a friendly send off on my next stage of Lands End to John O'Groats. If I'm ever in this part of the country again I shall... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Tinhay Mill. Paul and Margaret are the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble and our stay very relaxing. Margaret makes the most amazing breakfast using fresh local produce - just divine! Our room overlooked the garden, was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We also had the best nights sleep in a... More

This is the third time I have stayed with Margaret and Paul, and they have never disappointed me. The accommodation is absolutely spotless, and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The breakfast menu enabled all tastes to be catered for, food appeared very quickly and was beautifully presented. Margaret will always go the extra... More

We were lucky enough to stay here for one night on our cycle from John OGroats to lands End. A friendly welcome and our bikes quickly out in a dry secure garage. Very clean room with comfortable large bed, and nice hot shower. A good nights sleep as the house and area is very quiet. Next morning a wonderful breakfast... More

We loved every minute of our stay. Margaret is an absolute gem, and her breakfasts superb. The room was spotlessly clean and quiet. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a place to base for visiting the local attractions, Lands End an easy days drive there and back.

Margaret and Paul are very friendly and perfect hosts. The room was a good size, comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom, the only thing was a dodgy catch on the bathroom door which didn't really bother us. Breakfast was excellent with attention to detail and a lovely log fire burning.
