This is a nice B&B. Good location - 10 minutes walk from the harbour. Comfortable beds. Hot shower. Wifi. TV with freeview in the rooms. Good breakfast. Friendly, caring and welcoming hosts (Mark and Erica). As a B&B to use as a base to explore the region, this is a good choice.

In July we spent three nights at this wonderfully friendly guesthouse. The rooms are very comfortable and really interestingly decorated. No Null acht fünfzehn here.

I knew my partner had chosen the right place to stay as soon as I arrived, when Mark handed me two (I did share!?) homemade blueberry and pecan cupcakes (worth the trip to Cornwall alone) and a flask of "real" milk, before I had even seen what turned out to be a lovely, quirky, beautiful, "room with a view".

However, cannot fault owners .. breakfast was best we ever had on our trip .. including home made granola and home made fresh fruit including berries from their garden. Mark and Erica made... More

Nice room in a house that feels like home! Beds are very good. A little noice from the busy road, but after a day sightseeing did not disturbe our sleep! The granola for breakfast was fresh home made and delicous. Fresh fruits also. WE loved it very much!
