Our hosts Garry and Sandy could not have been more welcoming and Morgan their dog soon showed are dog Ruthie around.The room was great with lots of room and a very spacious on suite with every thing you could want for your stay.
The breakfast is amazing with wide choice to choose from, you wont need to have lunch! At night the stars shine so bright and it is so quiet and you are woken in the morning by the morning chorus.
As to eating out there are lots of excellent places to eat and your hosts will tell you all about them,we were very boring and went to the Five Pilchards each night (a proper pub).
So if you want a holiday to forget all your troubles in an idyllic place with lovely host and great food plus you can take your dog and learn Tai Chi look no further.

The Hen House is a lovely dog-friendly B & B which is more than your average B&B. We were given a warm welcome by Sandy & Gary who have worked hard to make their home eco-friendly & sustainable with new solar panels which gave us unlimited very hot water. The room was large, comfortable and clean and there was nothing we were left wanting for. The breakfasts were superb, beautifully cooked to order and we hardly needed lunch. It is a real retreat with fun Tai Chi classes before breakfast in the meadow if you desired, while our dogs roamed happily around us . Our hosts gave us ample information about the local area and were very informative and helpful, lending books and maps. The Hen House is tucked away down a narrow lane with beautiful views over the fields to the sea, it is so peaceful you can't fail to recharge your batteries here.
We explored The Lizard and sailed on the Helford river, walked along Frenchman's Creek and visited art galleries, ate cream teas and had delicious meals in pubs by the sea where all the locals were so friendly and welcoming, especially to our two dogs.
It is the sort of place that leaves you thinking you want to throw up your old life and move to Cornwall for a better quality of life.

What a lovely find... We had three nights at Sandy and Garys lovely B&B with our big hairy dog Bruno... Nothing was to much trouble, Morgan was a laid back golden retreiver that showed Bruno around and shared his rugby ball with a laid back ease. Both Gary and Sandy did breakfast for us, with a divine home made dried fruit compot to start the day, followed by BIG breakfast!! the only problem I found was then trying to fit in cream tea later in the day when out and about!
Really comfy rooms, and bed, lovely grounds, and easy to get up and walk the surrounding lanes with Bruno for that early morning leg stretch.

Room Tip: Off the beaten track, so follow the directions

We were lucky enough to stay at the Hen House during a spell of glorious weather which made the idyllic surroundings even more beautiful. The B & B itself was luxurious and comfortable but yet it still retained a rural charm.

The hospitality we received on our stay was absolutely first rate, we were made to feel welcome from the very beginning and the 3 course breakfast each morning kept us going well beyond lunch time. We also very much enjoyed the complimentary Thai Chi each morning in the wild flower meadow.

The surrounding area, with it's various gardens, attractions and stunning coastal walks, provided more than enough entertainment to fill our stay and we left feeling fulfilled and refreshed.

I would thoroughly recommend the Hen House to anyone who wants a relaxing retreat in beautiful rural surroundings and I very much suspect we shall be returning some time in the future!

I have just spent four wonderful nights at the Hen House and could not recommend it more highly. The hosts, Gary and Sandy, know everything you could possible need to know about the area; such as best cream teas, hot chocolates, walks, pubs...

It is very dog friendly. The B&B room was extremely comfortable with large shower and bath, television and DVD, books, information on local places to visit. Even fresh flowers for the visit.

From their meadow you get a wonderful panorama of the stars on a clear night, with not a sound to be heard apart from the local wildlife. You are woken to the sound of numerous different birds in the morning, and then have the most amazing home cooked breakfast served on local Cornish crockery. The Lizard Peninsula is excellent for beautiful coastal walks, good food, peace and quiet and a good rest.
