This is possibly the most beautiful home we have ever been in, so what a wonderful start to our week in Cornwall. The furniture, furnishings & fittings were elegant & tasteful. The setting delightful. (I thing that the internet photos do not do it justice.)
Best described as a Luxury boutique B&B. Very central location & a good base for touring. The parking cost is included & is nearby ( thought a bit of a climb up-hill to get to the car park).
Elizabeth & Nigel were the most charming & welcoming hosts offering the very best B&B experience one could wish for........a 5 star hotel would not have attended to such detail & service. We had a beautiful room with a superb spacious bathroom & roll top bath. The bed, bedding & linen were top quality & sooo comfortable, which aided a good nights sleep.
Afternoon Cornish cream tea in the Drawing room was an unexpected treat. The breakfast was top class, served in the delightful Orangerie overlooking the estuary. Even the china & silverware was beautiful. A great selection on offer, I especially loved the fresh fruit including baked nectarines. The best produce was obviously sourced for the traditional cooked breakfast & the coffee was great - we could not fault it, worth every penny- Classy 10/10!
