Stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend for a short break down by the sea. Booking online was easy and we already had an idea of what the place was like because of their impressive website.
We got there late in the afternoon and were shown to our room by the friendly owner, Milton. The room itself was big, clean, and had tea and coffee facilities (a nice touch was the 2 chocolate bars on top of the tea cups). There was a big shower in the bathroom which was very clean, a large bed/sofa and a big, comfortable double bed.
Breakfast in the morning was held in the large kitchen/diner which was a pleasent place to eat. Your choice of cereal, yogurt and fruit juice was on offer. You could also have an English breakfast made to order and cooked in the same room, a lovely touch! We had a good few chats with Milton during breakfast and he gave us some great tips about the places we were visiting and some ideas about other things to do and places to eat.
In Torpoint itself there are shops and pubs very near by. You can also easily get the ferry (which runs all night) over to Plymouth for a wider choice of places to drink and eat.
As for other things to do, we visited the Eden Project, the National Trust house where Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' was shot, Whitsand Bay beach, and a small village called Kingsand (which we highly recommend). All were excellent and close enough for a short car journey.
Overall we had a lovely stay at Cambridge House and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable stay near Cornwall or Plymouth.
