“a wonderful b and b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

This is a wonderful b and b. It's a beautiful old farmhouse in the middle of the countryside - a great place to rest and relax, and a superb base for exploring Cornwall. Jan is the perfect host - she gave us a warm and friendly welcome and was a great source of useful tips on places to visit and where to eat. And she makes a delicious breakfast, with home made and locally sourced ingredients. We stayed for 2 nights over Easter - I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Drym Farm is such a delightful place to stay. We have stayed a number of times whilst visiting family in the area, because Drym is so comfortable and you feel so at home. Jan is so warm and helpful, and keeps the place spotless. The breakfasts are wonderful; fresh and beautifully cooked.

It makes you addicted to stay in Jan's peaceful and calm place surrounded by pure nature. We spent our easter holidays at Drym Farm and can't wait to come back. We have been fallen in love with that particular place.

From your very cosy and clean room (and from your very huge bathroom as well) you can see the pheasants in the morning and listen to the blackbird's songs. It is perfectly situated between the north and the southcoast and a great starting point for long walks at the Cornish Coastal Path.

The breakfast is fantastic and prepared with love, to vary from the homemade muesli to organic salmon and scrambled eggs.

And always trust Jan's outstanding restaurant-recommendations!

We spent four nights at Drym Farm and wished that we could have been there longer. The food was delicious especially the home made bread and the "house muesli". Our room was spotless, comfortable and warm. The bathroom was pristine and kept so throughout our stay.The house full of character was utterly delightful and filled with interesting books and artefacts.

Jan could not have been more helpful. Arriving late she took control and immediately booked us into a local establishment for a meal. She recommended excellent restaurants and pubs and was keen to suggest various attractions. She was friendly, welcoming and most approachable. An air of warmth and calm exuded from her which set the scene for a most memorable holiday. Her interest in art and her love of Cornwall all added to the charm of Drym.

The weather like Drym Farm was perfect. What more could one ask? All in all this was one of the best holidays we have ever had.

My wife had already visited Drym farm and had such a lovely time there that she booked a surprise break there for us for 4 nights.

It's off the beaten track, and you have to be careful to follow the directions well in order to find it - it's pretty much equidistant between the north and south coasts, and you can reach either in 15 to 20 minutes by car.

The farmhouse itself is beautiful, with lots of character and surrounded by a lovely garden and trees. You're well placed to see the stars here.

We had a double room which was spacious, comfortable and pristine. The inside of the house is similar to the outside in that it has lots of character and period features. We had a bathroom which was almost as large as the bedroom. Everything was kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay.

Jan the proprietor was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area and was able to provide especially good suggestions on the best places to eat, how busy the venues were likely to get and when minimum times to book to ensure a table. We ate out fantastically every night.

The breakfasts, cooked by Jan using locally sourced organic produce, were exceptionally good. We just had to try everything during our stay, and our breakfasts included the full english, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and fantastic home prepared prunes with yoghurt, plus toast and cereal.

It's a really lovely place to stay and we are very much planning to return.

I first discovered Drym Farm last year, through Alisdair Sawday's 'Special Places to Stay'. The experience was so delightful that we returned this year for my 30th birthday.

On both occasions the warm hospitality of our host, Jan Bright, her delicious breakfasts, and the beautiful house and garden made for a holiday not only memorable but magical.

Jan was always ready with recommendations of things to do and see, and restaurants for every occasion. She also happily conspired with my sister to arrange for a delivery of flowers and champagne on my birthday!

Drym Farm is a beautiful and precious space. When it was finally time to leave, we did so only with thoughts of returning as soon as we could.

A wonderful B&B, hidden away in a different world from a different time. Relaxing, quiet, and private. We spent part of our honeymoon there and loved it.
The owner Jan Bright is lovely , and knows what to see, where to eat, and is happy booking you a table at her recommended restaurants.

Highly recommended
