We were lucky enough to be the first guests in Pippa and Hugo’s “Gurney House Holiday Let” following its conversion from a few of their B&B rooms. We had stayed before in their B&B and subsequently had quite high hopes. It is without a doubt the best self catering accommodation we’ve ever stayed in. Pippa and Hugo have created a fantastic, flexible place perfect for families and friends. Two bedrooms, a master with double and daybed (which our 6 year old loved), and one king or twin. Both with en suites, the master one being enormous! The view from the master bedroom is something else, right down to the sea. You get this view from the living room too. See my photos! Downstairs there is a large living room, kitchen and diner, another bathroom with top quality AEG washing machine and tumble dryer. That brings me into my main point. The fixtures and fittings are top class. Everything has been offered to the highest level. Honestly, I’ve never seen a kitchen in a place like this so well equipped. From the coffee pod machine (with Eden Project pods provided) to the countless tubs with lids (great for families) right down to the lemon squeezer and stick blender, Hugo has obviously specced it to his own standards! We actually ordered a couple of things in the kitchen off Amazon for our own kitchen. There’s also a brilliant gas BBQ on a decked terrace which we used a couple of times. You have lots of things provided on arrival, including milk, breakfast (the bacon was amazing), tea, kitchen towel, laundry liquid and dishwasher tabs, and even fresh roses. Honestly, what a treat. Within two days we were already wondering when we could come back.…
This is by far the best bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed in. The rooms are spotless, the beds amazingly comfy and the breakfast is everything that you could want to begin your day. You wake up to the views over the fields to the sea and the sounds of the birdsong. Pippa is on hand to cook your breakfast whilst you enjoy the freshly squeezed orange juice and the array of fresh fruits and cereal. She is on hand along with Hugo to advise you of everything you need to know about the Padstow area including walks and where to eat. As you can see we love the place and it has taken us 15 years of stays here before I wrote this review because from a purely selfish point of view I want to be sure that we can always get in!!
We just got home from a wonderful stay at Woodlands. Our room was bright, spacious and perfect for our small family. Pippa and hugo were superb hosts and the breakfast was amazing. We look forward to staying again in the future!
Stayed here for 2 nights around Easter and were blown away by Pippa and Hugo’s hospitality. You are made to feel like an honoured and familiar guest. The B&B itself is beautiful, impeccably clean and homely. The room was perfect, with everything you could need, a huge comfy bed and a luxurious roll top bath - even some tasty Cornish biscuits. Breakfast was unforgettable and to quote my partner after day one “I can’t wait for pippa’s breakfast again tomorrow!” - you can’t miss Hugo’s marmalade cake; lemon curd or the hoggs pudding! Percy is also a delight and made each morning round the breakfast table even more special. We will be back!
Very relaxing stay at Woodlands and well looked after by Pippa and Hugo. We had a lovely room and the breakfast was delicious. Woodlands is a great location in Padstow giving the chance to drive up and the Cornish coastline Well recommended. We will return
