Lynvale Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 7 Mousehole B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed with Fiona again last week, for our annual Cornwall break.This year on a room only basis, however, coffee, tea, chocolate, biscuits and fruit were always available.
Brilliant for us, because we like to be lazy on holiday, and didn't have to have a breakfast routine!!
Hospitality was brilliant, as it was on our previous stay in 2011, and the parking is an added bonus in the village.
Perfect location for a short walk down to the harbour, or up to Paul (the next village), and ideal base to explore Cornwall generally.

The room was clean and the bed was new, but we have a problem with the fact that Fiona failed to leave on the outside light for two elderly guests, and the cooked breakfast was poor. Getting a car in and out of the drive was extremely difficult.

We stayed 3 nights in this B&B. And we liked it. The location is great, the view to the sea very beautiful, the rooms a bit small but very clean. Very good breakfast and Fiona´s hospitality just great.

I must write about this fantastic stay with Fiona and her daughter in Mousehole. We spent four nights here and we really loved it. Beautiful view from the rooms and Fiona's hospitality made the stay wonderful. There are a lot of great places to visit around Mousehole, and we did. We would very much want to come back and we would be very happy if you Fiona and your daughter would like to visit us in Sweden. Britt-Marie, Tore, Berit and Kent.

My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights at Lynvale B&B. We came in the evening, and almost missed the sign for Lynvale! Glad we didn't, because Mousehole is probably one of the hilliest cities I have been in, probably more so than San Francisco! Even though I wasn't driving, I was probably white knuckled the whole time.

That aside, there was a mix-up when we arrived- we were double booked for the night, but Fiona quickly did up her bedroom for us to use while she slept in her daughter's room - so nice of her to do so. The rest of the time, we stayed in the Boatshed room, which had a bathroom across the hallway. Room had a nice sea view, and the bed was so comfortable. The B&B is a nice walk to the harbour, or a short walk up to Paul. Breakfasts were amazing and very filling- scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, full English breakfasts - although some days I ended up opting for a lighter breakfast since we ate out so much in the town! (there was lots of fruit and muesli available as well).

Fiona was lovely as well, making sure we were well taken care of - when we went to the Minack Theatre she loaned us a sleeping bag and cushions.

Otherwise - Lynvale B&B is spacious, super clean, and so serene - extremely relaxing. I would fully recommend it!

As per other reviews, beware of the very steep driveway into the B&B - but note that the rest of Mousehole is just as steep!

We booked this B&B as our main location for our trip to Cornwall.

After a 300 mile plus journey through some very heavy rain we arrived in Mousehole to discover our car could not get up the steep driveway into the off road parking area. Our car has slightly lowered suspension not unlike a lot of other cars around. This meant that to drive frontways in meant the car grounded at the front bumper and could not go any further.

If you are considering staying here I would advise that you bear this in mind.

From reading other reviews I was really looking forward to staying here. We did manage to reverse our car up the drive but this nearly burnt the clutch out in doing so! There was no other real option apparent for parking other than the very narrow lane which couldn't guarantee a space and also being so tight was a worry for damage to our parked vehicle.

It was at this point we decided to look for accomodation elsewhere and get the car looked at! Sadly with the cost of a night's accomodation out of pocket we headed off to find an alternative.

I cannot comment on the rooms as we never got that far. The location is picturesque and seemed quiet.

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in 'Serendipity'. Room was very well presented with fantastic sea views towards The Lizard. Off road parking was plentiful which is a rarity in Mousehole. Convenient for both Mousehole harbour and Paul. Breakfasts were excellent - we never left the table hungry! Home made cake was also available which was delicious (expecially the lemon drizzle). Finally, and most importantly, we found Fiona a most friendly and helpful host. All in all a fantastic stay in a beautiful part of the country. I am sure we will return soon. Highly recommended.
