“perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2005

We spent a week at Caunce Head. Athough we picked it completely
"blind" over the internet exept for the one existing review, we could
not have chosen better! Jan and Russ are the perfect hosts, they made us welcome from the start.
The atmosphere at the breakfast table was always very
relaxed and on our first day when we chose coffee as our drink
we were given a multi choice of methods, strength and type, the
same applied to tea.
The choice of the meal - scrambled egg with salmon: Kippers: full English Breakfast "one egg or two", bacon, mushrooms, fried bread (fried in olive oil), and tomatoes.
Our room was excellent, with lovely white towels and bath robes
in the bathroom, all the little extras that one finds in a good hotel plus sachets of Aloe Vera gel and cream, Even a sachet of tooth paste!
Jan and Russ have obviously put a lot of thought into the whole
thing including the homely decor etc. and it all works wonderfully well, thanks to their hard work.

What a find! A wonderful 17th Century Cornish stone house situated high on and set back from the cliff tops at Mullion and with easy access to the footpaths. With only two unique, cosy bedrooms there is a feeling of days gone by (with all the mod cons!). We stayed in the Mount View room which was an absolute delight. We couldn't fault it from the comfortable four poster bed, the window seat with views of Mount Bay, the cosy bathroom with corner bath and shower and not forgetting the many extra thoughtful touches that you normally don't find elsewhere but which makes this place special.

The Aga cooked breakfast was wonderful with a choice from the full English to Haddock or Kippers. We settled for the fish and were not disappointed.

Jan and Russ are thoughtful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We only stayed for one night but wished it had been longer. If you are looking for somewhere to unwind with excellent accommodation but without staying in a hotel, you really cannot go wrong. We'll be back.
