My husband and I only intended to stay 2 nights at Harmony Homestay this summer, but we ended up staying for 3 and seriously considered calling work to try and make it a whole week, but instead are already planning our next trip back to visit.
Before we even arrived I knew we'd made a good choice from the friendly welcoming emails and travel advice we recieved, but I couldn't have imagined how wonderful our stay was to be.
From the moment of our arrival we were welcomed by Charlie and Nigel like old friends into their imaculate home. They helped us with our bags to our stunning bedroom with spotless bathroom, super shower, enormous bed, TV/DVD, tea and coffee facilities - which it turns out we didn't need because within minutes we were enjoying tea and home make cakes on the lawn while they helped us plan our sight seeing activities for the next few days. Nigel has an encyclopeadic knowledge of cornwall and provided us with several personalised tour routes and points of intrest to visit and even broadend our cultural horizons by inviting us, along with their other guests to a local opera performance, which was a thouroughly enjoyable evening out. Breakfast was truly a feast every morning with Charlie's fabulous full english, toast, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, so much so we didn't need lunch most days! We left feeling like we had made two new friends and would gladly welcome them to stay at our home if they ever fancied visiting Hertfordshire or London. We have recommended them to everyone we know and will definitly be back next time we're in Cornwall.
