Wow, what a place! JJ and Lynn welcomed us into their Abbey turned B&B with open arms. The building itself is simply stunning, and you must sit in the bar for a drink one evening as it is the best room in the place. My mum and I wanted separate beds so we stayed in the family room which was... More

Stayed here for one night enroute back home and what a charming little place this is. Lovely setting, gorgeous gardens, a very warm welcome and a show round this rather quiant and unusal property. Our room was number 2. Very comfortable bed and all the amenities you could possibly need. I'd say decor in the room was very tired looking... More

We stayed for seven days so that we could tour Cornwall from here, and we made a good choice in this lovely B & B. Beautiful building with very nice rooms and even better service from friendly staff and owners.

We spent one night here on our way back to London as the location is amazing - close to the Eden Project and A30. JJ and Lynn were incredibly welcoming and made us all feel at home, including our two young children. They were delighted with the garden space and we felt very relaxed letting them run around. We stayed... More

Quite literally it is centrally... More

Situated on the fringe of the Cornish village of Lanivet, St Benet's Abbey is ideally located for touring Cornwall which is why we originally chose it. The greeting we received was warm and welcoming and our room just the same. Nothing was too much trouble for Lynn, John and their staff in ensuring our stay was comfortable. During the 7... More

Frank and I run a B&B in Australia and I have a fairly critical eye, and I can report that John and Lynn run a fabulous B&B at Lanivet in Cornwell. It is over 800 years old and since John has bought the B&B he is slowly restoring a lot of the old features, particularly for the tower and gardens.... More
