“Brilliant service, lovely stay.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We've just returned from a two night stay and have had a great time. The breakfasts were lovely and well cooked. Polite conversations were had and we were made to feel at home. Trudie even ironed my shirt for me after my poor packing into my suit carrier.
We had a front room which was a tad open to the outside world but pulling the blinds down resolved that.

Pity me taxis were great for taking us a couple of miles down the road for a fantastic meal at Nathan Outlaws restaurant. We ate in Rick Steins the night before and were definitely spoilt.

Rooms were well laid out, beds lovely and the shower was lovely. If I didn't have to eat I would have stayed in there all day :-)

We have stayed at The Dormy House on a number of occasions and the experience never fails to impress. This is not your usual B&B. The owners are Swedish and Cornish, Anders and Trudie (don't even try pronouncing their surname!) and have brought Swedish style, simplicity and comfort to this lovely part of North Cornwall. Bright colours, cleanliness, great showers, super comfy beds, wonderful cooked breakfasts in a peaceful airy dining room overlooking the garden, super comfy beds; you won't want to go out. It feels like a boutique hotel, and with so much on the doorstep it's a much better bet at great value. Our favourite trip out is to take the ferry from the beach down on the Rock end of Daymer Bay and go across to Padstow for dinner, if you can afford it at one of Rick Stein's eateries. Very highly recommended.

Trudie and Anders gave us a warm welcome last week and we enjoyed our 4 night stay very much despite appalling weather over the Christmas period. We stayed in the annex, comprising bedroom, shower room, sitting room / kitchen, which was ideal for the 2 of us and our dog. Everything was clean and comfortable. The only thing that was missing was the provision of bathroom toiletries. The really excellent breakfasts set us up well for each day. We would not hesitate to recommend Dormy House.

We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home for the week we stayed. They were knowledgeable about all the golf courses, small villages to visit, hiking trails and places to eat and shop. We throughly enjoyed our stay and slept wonderfully well in the very quiet room. I would plan a trip back to England just to stay again.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful.

Trudie & Anders provided us 4 golfers with the most perfect accommodation for our 3 night stay. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated in a modern design . En suite facilities.Breakfasts were outstanding. They also provided an evening meal on our first night which would take some beating locally-even by Rick Stein!. Strongly recommend taking advantage of this evening facility.Convenient for St Enodoc G.C.
A relaxing stay with perfect hosts. A pity the weather for the golf was not better!

A wonderful new addition having visited Rock for many years. Welcoming, fresh quality linen, modern and clean bathrooms. Attention to detail was much appreciated. Delicious and imaginative breakfast using local butcher's sausages and Rock Bakery bread. Trudie and Anders were most hospitable and genial hosts. Will visit again and again!!
