“Enny's is an absolutely wonderful B&B”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Everything about this B&B is charmed: the tucked away location, the manor house and gardens, pool and tennis courts and not least the owner, who is friendly whilst effective and has exceptionally good taste. Her taste and high standards translate into a wonderful service, clean and beautifully decorated rooms and common areas with original and interesting artwork. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't find a single fault with this amazing retreat. We will definitely be returning!

This is one of those hotels that should not be reviewed on tripadvisor as those that stay here want it to remain a closely guarded secret.

Located at the end of a winding country lane, this beautfully maintained ivy clad guesthouse is one of the best I ever stayed in.

Before arrival, we contacted the owner who organised bike rental for us and marked out some routes for us to enjoy. There are great cycle routes all around the region with stunning views of Cornwall's finest scenery.

The owner of the guesthouse has a great knowledge of the area and made some great recommendations for our stay.

The rooms are very comfortable. Mine had a four poster bed (not a four coaster bed as my scrawny friend insisted was the correct term). It also had a great window seat and a great selection of books and magazines for perusal.

The property has lovely gardens and an outdoor swimming pool. It also has a grass tennis court which unfortunately, we didn't get to use as my scrawny travel companion didn't want me to beat him again.

Well worth a visit.

Stayed here for 2 nights late June. Lovely location, wonderful gardens, beautiful house and very friendly and helpful staff. Just a shame I never got round to using the swimming pool. Thank you for a great couple of days.

Ennys is a Bed and Breakfast with style and class, undoubtedly putting it in a league of it's own. A little off the beaten track ensures just the right mix of civilisation versus privacy and solitude.
Your Cornwall escape starts with a warm welcome from owner Gill, followed by freshly baked homemade scones and pot of tea in the stunning surrounding gardens of this magnicant 17th Centuray Manor House. After a realxing cuppa and bite to eat in the afternoon sun, it's time to settle in.
The bedrooms that my parents and I stayed in were truly beautifully decorated and furnished. With luxurious bedlinen, modern bathroom facilties, bath robe, tea and coffee making facilties, and a superb view of the surrounding countryside, who would ever want to leave their room! And if you do have the inclination to leave your cosy room, there is a very relaxing lounge room to enjoy reading a book or play board games with family and friends. The rest of the house is tastefully decked out in an eclectic mix of antiques, art and interesting artifacts from around the world creating a warm and unique atmosphere.

Breakfast at Ennys is a most wonderful expercience using fresh, local produce including homemade jams and spreads. Jenna provides friendly, efficient service and contrubutes warmly to the dining atmosphere. The museli for me was the best I've ever tasted, complemented by the fresh fruit and yoghurt, followed by toast with lemon curd or delicious marmalade! And need I mention the quality of the hot breakfasts, just amazing! Breakfast at Ennys is a truly fabulous way to begin your day of either relaxing by the pool, playing tennis, exploring the surrounding paddocks or sightseeing around the coast line!

Thankyou so much Gill and the team for allowing us to experience the wonderfulness that is Ennys!

Kate, Sharon-lee and Hugh.

We enjoyed our stay at Ennys - the house is beautiful and the rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped. On arrival Gill offered us afternoon tea in the pictureque gardens which was great after a long drive.

The house is located about a mile down a private country road and the setting is so peaceful and tranquil.

It is a very professionally run B&B (although I would expect this as the nightly rate is reflective of a 'higher end' B&B). The bathroom was well stocked with white company toiletries, the towels were good quality and soft and the shower was very good (grohe). A fulllist of local resaurants and accompanying short reviews were also provided. We used this as our guide for the weekend and the recommendations were spot on. Ennys also offers free wireless internet access and there was also access to an Apple Mac in the house.

Breakfast was excellent and included more choice that the average B&B. Daily afternoon tea is also served. There is even an outdoor swmming pool available to guests.

The only down side I would say was the bed - it is all down to personal preference but we found it very soft.

We stayed one night B&B late May bank holiday for £130. An absolutely fantastic rural location, a short drive from the coast and restaurants/ pubs. The Georgian house has been beautifully renovated, decorated throughout in relaxing tones with interesting pieces of art to capture the imagination. The outside grounds, including tennis court and swimming pool, are equally well conceived and beautifully maintained. Afternoon cream tea on arrival is very welcome after a long drive to Cornwall and the breakfast is high quality with a good selection cooked to order (not just the usual tired fired breakfast). Thoughtful touches like the information in the room recommending a variety of activities, walks and restaurants is excellent.
Ennys strikes the perfect balance between classic English rural retreat combined with modern comforts and decor.

Gorgeous gardens, lovely main house down a long country lane. Gill gives you excellent driving and walking tips you should follow. Good breakfasts. Gill is quite pleasant and helpful but is not the kind of B and B owner who wants to sit around and schmooze with the guests so don't expect it. My disappointment was with one of the cottages--Hayloft. It is a bit rustic for my taste, and I wonder if the main house (which was full) would not have been a more comfortable and well-decorated place to stay.
