We stayed one night at Staple Cross and wished we'd planned a longer stay. We were made very welcome by Roy and Monica. The double en suite room is lovely and the bed is so comfortable. Staple Cross is a quiet, rural spot that worked well for us - we were en route to Cornwall. Next time we'll stay longer... More

Thank you for the review. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay with us last week, albeit a brief one. We'd love to see you both here again & your bikes are welcome too - there's plenty of places to cycle including some flat areas. After a good day on them you'll appreciate the comfy bed even more!

Just stayed one night, attending a wedding near by. Lovely room, host and breakfast especially the sausages. Location good for where we were going, glad we had sat nav on our phone to get there, even though we live in a rural area ourselves!

We had two nights in this b and b and we enjoyed our stay very much indeed. A chilly December weekend made us appreciate the lovely warm cottage and its log burning stoves and the superb hospitality of Monica and Roy. They were such kind and thoughtful hosts and we did appreciate their friendliness and the way they made us... More

Tasty breakfasts, spacious bedroom, sociable hosts who treated us like house-guests rather than customers. We were in the area for a function on the Saturday evening, but booked in for three nights to make a short break, without much idea of what to do or to see (and not realising what a tiny remote hamlet Staple Cross is!). We therefore... More

Thank you for your review. We’re very pleased you enjoyed your break here with us. Yes, it’s a quiet hamlet here at Staple Cross and, as you say, a good base too, as it’s easy to reach many places of interest. Should you decide to explore this area further sometime in the future we’d love to see you again. More

We stayed at Staple Cross as we were attending a wedding in the area. Monica and Roy made us welcome from the moment we arrived. Everything you could possibly need had been thought about - we wanted for nothing. Definitely 5 star. Our breakfasts were beautifully cooked and well presented, even had home made jams. Sorry to leave after a... More

This was a great find for our 2 night stay in the area. We stayed in the double en-suite room, which was clean, well equipped (TV, kettle, etc) and the bed was very comfortable. Roy and Monica were friendly, welcoming and helpful, they even offered to drive us to the wedding we were attending locally. The breakfast was delicious with... More

My wife and I pride ourselves on finding outstanding b & bs (usually with the help of Trip Advisor). Well, we've done it again. We stayed at Staple Cross Cottage while we attended a wedding nearby.
