“Lovely place, odd hosts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Very clean, very quiet, nice bed, good breakfast and a good shower. Lovely views out of the bedroom window.

However the hosts weren't the friendliest people in the world. We turned up in the rain (without a car) granted 1 hour early at 3:00 rather than at 4:00. We went to what looked like the front door of the house to get told from behind the door to go to the next door, we went to the next door which got opened ajar and we were then told to walk around the house to the back. All of this in the pouring rain. We went round the back and finally got let in to a wooden floored hallway opposite the door we were refused entry at. A very Basil Fawlty moment indeed. One of those memories you'll keep with you and tell your kids about one day.

When we got in we were reminded that we were an hour early but were told "seeing that it was raining" that we could go to our room. In the room there's a big sign reminding guests that this is a B&B not a guest-house where guests are expected to be off premises from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

I will say that Graham was much friendlier than Bridget, and things did get less frosty from that initial point on-wards, but still it did rather put a strain on the whole stay.

Another minor criticism is that the place is very difficult to find and is not sign-posted from the road. If it wasn't for a very friendly lady bar-person in the local pub we would never have found the place at all.

We arrived at Pelyn B&B in the mist and dark and got stuck in a ditch. Graham and Bridget were wonderful. They got us inside with the promise of help in the morning.

The room was wonderful. The bed HUGE, En Suite Shower and glorious views over the vast garden. So very peaceful too.

After a good nights rest and an amazing full english breakie, Graham managed to tow us out of the ditch and into safety. What a star!

We were in the area for a wedding and really couldn't have picked a better place. We were brought wine as we were getting ready and Graham gave us a lift to the venue.

Nothing was too much, Bridget and Graham really are top hosts and I would recommend this place to anyone. They also have a holiday home that they rent out.

We stayed here for two nights whilst attending a wedding nearby and had a fantastic stay. The B&B itself is situated just outside the village of Gerrans a few miles from St Mawes on the south Cornish coast. The site itself sits in 18 acres of farmland, and they have several rooms and a separate self-contained cottage. We stayed in a huge room with en-suite - the bed was enormous! The room was immaculately clean and had all amenities you'd expect. Breakfast was a treat, as were the extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts. We were even treated to a glass of wine and a lift to the wedding - brilliant! All in all a very pleasant stay in a cracking B&B in one of the nicest parts of Cornwall.

Room Tip: Get directions before you leave so you're able to find it.
