We spent four nights in this way above average B+B and can't fault it in any way.
The double room we had was very well decorated ,extremely clean and very comfortable with a very well appointed en-suite bathroom.
The highlights were the wonderful breakfasts and the desire of our hosts -Shelley and Geoff- to ensure that we wanted for nothing.The 'Orchard Omlette' was both wonderful and memorable and the choice of breakfast dishes superb.
Special mention must,however,go to Shelley and Geoff who -as the title implies- worked to the mantra that nothing was too much trouble .
Examples of this were to take our wet coats from us as we came in and use their own facilities to dry them and to allow us free use of their telephone when we were unable to obtain a signal on our mobiles.
Orchard Lodge is situated on a hill above the unique village of Boscatle.The walk down to the village is easy and takes about 10mins.The walk back up the hill takes significantly longer!
Although no evening meals are provided at Orchard Lodge it is within easy reach of a number of pubs and restaurants.We frequently used one called 'The Napoleon' which was about a five minute walk away .Good atmosphere and reasonably priced ,tasty food.
We will undoubtedly return to Orchard Lodge when we next visit Cornwall.
