I had a corner room with a beautiful view of the Cornish coast. Room was cozy but very thoughtfully equipped. Very clean and comfortable. And a fabulous breakfast each morning. Only one tip...hit the shower early to avoid fluctuating temperatures.

My mam and I had a wonderful stay at the Ancient Shipbrokers Inn. We had the rooms facing the sea and they were lovely! Very clean and comfortable with all amenities. Wendy and Mel were very welcoming and very helpful. Mel's breakfast was to die for especially his scrambled eggs! Would highly recommend a stay here. If we ever get... More

Our rooms both faced out to the sea and were nicely furnished and comfortable. Electric showers in both ensuites worked and small selection... More

Stayed for 2 nights in this lovely comfortable b&b. Very convenient for visiting family in Mevagissey. We stayed in the Blue Room - a very clean, quiet, well equipped room overlooking the old harbour, beach and countryside. Wendy and Malcolm were very friendly and the breakfast very good. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a lovely B&B set in a idyllic village near St Austell. The room was clean with great facilities. I stayed in the pink room and it was lovely. It is close to a lot of attractions like the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. There are a couple of places to eat in the village or... More

Gem of a BB in a wonderful location. Short walking distance to beach and well located to visit the Lost Gardens and Eden Project. Hosts are wonderful with good sized rooms all looking onto the sea. VERY quiet and peaceful if that is what you require (like us!).
