We stayed at Kerthua Park B & B for 3 nights in the middle of July 2007. We were looking for modestly priced B & B accommodation for 2 couples in a near the Eden Project, preferably in a pretty village, and found Kerthua Park on the internet. The B & B is situated in a lovely location just over 5 minutes up a steep hill outside of Mevagissey, itself a picturesque place, and is also home to a small caravan site and an alpaca farm.
There are only 2 rooms, both en-suite, one is a twin and the other a spacious double. Guests also have use of a hot tub, which is amazing at night as you can see the stars due to the lack of street lighting. Breakfast is made up of cereals, fruit (dried and normal) and a lovely cooked breakfast, which you eat overlooking the marvelous views of the rolling countryside. We very much enjoyed our stay.
The only negative points were the lack of communal space outside of our bedrooms (no guest lounge) and the feeling that we had to be quiet in the hot tub at night (after 10pm) due to the close proximity to the owner's bedroom and worries about disturbing their sleep! Other than that and the scary Cornish back roads (which have to be seen to be believed), we had a good stay.
If you stay here you do need a car and to be prepared for the ridiculously narrow lanes of Mevagissey and the very steep incline of the road to the B and B. It is a good base for travelling around Cornwall and is a very peaceful place to sleep at night ( no street lights, no traffic noise ... bliss!)
