Thoroughly enjoyed my short stay here whilst on business in the area. Generous sized room with a large double bed, nice en-suite with good sized shower, excellent breakfast with terrific meaty sausage! Thank you for sharing your home!

stayed four nights at Shave Farm last month with a friend in the twin room. We were made to feel welcome from the start, Kate was really friendly, giving advice on places to visit or eat. The room was a generous size and had a well stocked welcome tray, en suite shower room and a separate sink in the room.... More

Just came back from a lovely stay at Shave farm in their stunning new Cedar Lodge self catering accommodation. The Lodge exceeded expectations, the pictures don't do it justice. It was lovely to relax each evening with a BBQ (great BBQ pack available from Kate for your stay) followed by drinks on the patio and a chill in the hot... More

My partner & I used this as a stop halfway to Newquay for our summer break, after staying in the self catering cottage at the same site 4 years ago. From our arrival until the moment we left, Kate (the owner) couldn't have been more hospitable - we were greeted with tea or coffee in the communal guest lounge that... More

What a lovely experience. We stopped in the house for B&B. It was beautifully decorated and clean. Breakfast was cooked to perfection. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They also have a converted barn and a cedar lodge. Both were immaculate and ideal for families or couples to have private time.

Very warmly welcomed with a tray of tea and biscuits. Spotlessly clean room with comfy beds. Delicious cooked breakfast and freshly ground cafeteria coffee, choice of fresh fruit and yoghurts. Lovely countryside and choice of local pubs for an evening meal.

We have stayed at Shave Farm 4 times now and we are planning to return to try out their brand new cottage with hot tub in August. We absolutely love it here. Kate and James are the perfect hosts. If you are just wanting a short stopover or a weeks holiday this is the place to stay. Although in the... More

And offered us a freshly made pot of coffee along with some home made cookies. Our bedroom was very nice, decent shower room, separate WC big King size bed, tea and... More
