A lovely B&B with a very friendly welcome and some beautiful paintings on the walls. Dinner was beautiful and the couple running the B&B were very friendly, helpful, cultured and very interesting to chat to. A very nice and old pub round the corner.

I have stayed at Lower House guesthouse four or five times in the last few years. This is an overdue review.

The hosts, Peter and Tessa, are charming and hospitable. The rooms are clean and comfortable with original artwork providing special interest. Breakfast is a real treat - fresh local ingredients perfectly cooked and served. Overall - seriously recommended.

Since last winter we have visited Lower House in Callington on a number of occasions, every time experiencing the warmth and care shown by the hosts Tessa and Peter Sulston. We are always happy to stay with them, as they succeed in combining a very personal style with a professional attitude on a high level. You feel at home at Lower House even without participating in any artistic activity or being part of training courses or programs. Being Norwegians, Tessa and Peter have opened Cornwall to our hearts and minds and made us curious to learn more about so many local sites and events. The hospitality, the good dinners, the friendly atmosphere and the feeling of being in a place of art and love of art are unique and worth exploring. Thank you Tessa and Peter.

Tessa and Peter Sulston have created something extraordinarily special at Callington Art School, Lower House. Tessa is an inspirational and generous art tutor, who transmits her enthusiasm and dedication to her students; for me, my week at Callington was a game-changer. Peter is a superb cook; I very much enjoyed the delicious food, good English dishes sourced from local ingredients. The atmosphere was, as others have suggested, rather like a very good house party. The decor is tasteful, and beds are comfortable, with excellent quality linens. I was particularly impressed by Tessa and Peter's professionalism at a difficult moment: despite experiencing a bereavement, they soldiered on in impeccable fashion, with a smile on their faces.If I could give them ten stars, I would. I'll very definitely be back!

This is the second time I have been on a course at Callington and again I had a really lovely time. The course was excellent and Tessa is always aware of the needs of each individual. The food is wonderful and always freshly prepared by Peter. Great time.
Hope to go again next year.

Just returned from my second six-day course at the Callington Art School and already looking forward to another one! Tessa's instruction is kind and tactful but also practical; she brings people on amazingly in just a few days. Whenever weather permitted, we made painting/sketching trips out to the beach, the moor and locations on the Tamar.

Peter's cooking is delicious and he and Tessa are delightful hosts.
