“Best B&B Ever!!! But Don't Tell Everybody; We want to go again!!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We have stayed here & at their previous B&B next door both for a week at a time. We doubt you'll find better; in fact the 1st time we stayed with Peter & Caroline there was a large group of us staying at various B&B's in the area & this one was (and still is) the best by a long mile; the others wished they stayed with us. Breakfast are to die for with a wonderful choice & their American pancakes are the best we have tasted; both here & in USA! Rooms are spotless & beautifully decorated, all en-suite.
To give some background to our comment. I have been involved with running both large hotels and Guest houses for many years; so I expect Cleanliness, Hospitality, quality food all at the right price. Updown Cottage is different; you get all that but at a price far lower than the service you receive, Bargain! You'll find your hosts soon become friends. It's such a lovely place don't forget to pack your slippers! We will be returning to stay here. Phil & Louise.

Very comfortable room, great breakfast, very friendly reception by both Peter and Caroline. Well worth a visit and stay 2 nights to enjoy a delicious home made Cream Tea. Cottage is modern and spotlessly clean, with great attention to the smallest detail.

We stayed at the cottage for one night and were delighted with everything. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and lots of attention to detail. Caroline and Peter made us very welcome and were wonderful hosts. Our breakfast was simply fabulous. I would highly recommend Updown Cottage as one of the best bed and breakfast stays we have ever stayed in.... try it for yourself!

Room Tip: There are three rooms and they are all equally nice

We couldn't recommend UpDown Cottage highly enough. Caroline and Peter were fantastic hosts, we were made to feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. The cottage itself is delightful, beautifully decorated with a very crisp & modern yet classic cottage look- lots of wooden beams etc. It was just lovely, everything about it- the rooms were excellent, we were treated fabulously- and the food was to die for! You simply must try their speciality cream tea!! I will definitely be coming back here with my girlfriend for a longer stay.

Following a recent car accident in Cornwall, my husband and I were left stranded at Callington. Following serveral phone calls from the recovery vehicle company, Updown were able to accommodate us. It was now dark when we arrived and were greeted by the lovely Caroline in the lane with a flash torch. She walked us down to the cottage and introduced us to her husband Pete. What a warm welcome awaited us! Hot drinks, biscuits , soup and freshly toasted bread. and the very kind offer of the use of their telephone to make any necessary calls, together with the use of their internet if required.The room we had was superb, spotlessly clean, and extremely well appointed - we even enjoyed homemade chocolates which were left on our neatly turned back bed when we retired for the night. Breakfast was fantastic and served in the lovely open plan dining/lounge/kitchen area of cottage, where you could share in friendly conversation with the hosts whilst the food was being prepared. Our stay was first class and the hospitality did not end there, as Caroline very kindly drove us back to the recovery vehicle centre for our return trip home. 10 out of 10 for us and a huge big thankyou for our wonderful hosts. This is definitely one not to to missed!!!

Fabulous cottage, stunning breakfasts and great hosts in Peter and Caroline. We were looked after exceptionally well and really appreciated the cream tea on arrival after a long tiring but great ride down to Cornwall. Beautifully well appointed rooms. M & J

Me and my boyriend stayed 10 days in August 2012 in this lovely cottage, quiet location and perfect to travel from north to south Corwall.
As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Caroline and Peter (the owners) that are really a lovely couple. We stayed in room no. 2 that was big, confortable and extreamly clean and the bathroom also. We had a wonderful time here, the Breakfast was absolutely very satisfying and over any expectacion, with many different choices on the menu and all yummy! Professionality in everything Caroline and Peter do, its there job and they do it superbly! I really advise you to go and stay there! I travelled a lot in my life and never found such nice BB!! Will go there again next year!

Room Tip: All the rooms are really good!
