“GREAT BANDB”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We selected this place from Sawday's Special Places To Stay. Despite being half term we were the only guests for two nights. Landewednack is owned by Sue Thorbek and she is an extremely hospitable hostess. She is supported by Antony who is a brilliant chef.

The house is situated a few minutes walk from the Lizard Lifeboat station which is situated in a spectacular position facing the Atlantic. We were fortunate with the weather and enjoyed some fine walking along the coastal path.

At Poldhu, Marconi sent the first radio message across the Atlantic in 1901 and the spot is marked with a monument. For those with a sense of history this is a very special place.

The Lizard is great place for a holiday and for just getting away from every

Room Tip: Go for a sea view.

If you want to walk this section of the coastal path, then it is hard to pick a better place to stay. GREAT FOOD, good wine, owners willing to help out in any way--made a fire upon our arrival in the sitting room, drove us to the start of a hike so we could walk back at our leisure, suggestions on where to stop on our way out. The house has charm and character as do the owners. One should like dogs.

Back from spending another lovely weekend at this wonderful house. Great location for walking or touring. The food cooked by Anthony is fantastic, and the whole experience very relaxing. Can't wait for our next visit!

Room Tip: The big room has a fantastic view and lovely bathroom

Landewednack House is B&B fit for a prince or princess. The interior is exquisitely furnished and adorned with fascinating collections of art and ornaments. The food is Michelin quality at affordable prices. Four of the five pugs are docile and friendly; one is a bit hyperactive. Anthony and Sue are very friendly and have a great sense of humour. The twin room is a bit cramped but comfortable. Every detail has been considered, right down to toffee eclairs and a small flask of brandy in the room. This is grand living on a miniature scale - a perfect treat.

Cornwall is a perfect location and Landewednack is the perfect place to stay-the house is beautifully furnished and the hosts Anthony and Sue make all feel very welcome! It really is a relaxing house with lovely gardens and walks, Anthonys food is perfect and the only downside is to have a healthy breakfast would be so wrong as the full English breakfasts are a must! we have visited 4 times and never been dissapointed!!!

Room Tip: The garden facing rooms. Fantastic view

We first stayed at Landewednack house six years ago. It was one of those places that we we should have returned to earlier. A beautiful house run by nice people and really superb food - there is no more to say! Good luck to Sue and Anthony!

We tried this out as keen followers of Alastair sawday recommendations.
We weren't disappointed. A beautiful house set within an amazing garden and swimming pool.
The owner and manager were as barking as their 5 pugs and we loved them! It was a truly spoiling anniversary dinner and breakfast. Anthony treated us like royalty and sue treated us like her new best friends. The bed was sooo comfy with divine cotton sheets. We only discovered the decanter of port (hidden amongst the ornaments) in the room the following morning . The food deserves a special mention. Anthony's crab soup was everything reputation said it would be and the fresh turbot was better than the turbot I had recently at a famous numerical restaurant at watergate bay.
I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a spoiling time out.

Room Tip: Pay more and go for the best
