We were on a road trip from London to Cornwall in Easter. We have two children with us, age 2 and 5. We have traveled many places and never felt such unwelcomed from the owner of Higher Faugan. It's our mistake to book this place as it states "children age 3 welcome to stay". But we only found out this...

We stayed here as a family across two rooms. Unbeknownst to me, they have a policy of no children under three. When we arrived with our 26-month-old, Doug told me about this policy. I apologised and Doug didn't make a big deal of it because he's a nice guy. Our room was at the end on the ground floor -...

Thanks for the kind remarks, our young child policy is shown on our website under description when booking online, which I believe this booking was made via, we also advise all agents to make this clearly visible to potential guests when booking, it is unfortunate you did not see this when making the reservation. However we honoured your reservation without...

A perfect and peaceful base for exploring this part of Cornwall. I spent a week in Suite 3 which was superb, with an extensive view that included Mount's Bay and some spectacular sunrises. The suite was stylishly furnished and decorated, equipped to a high standard, and had everything I needed for a very comfortable stay, including good wifi. The concept...

We stayed here for one night prior to travelling to the Isles of Scilly. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Doug, we felt welcome and looked after. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. Beds are comfortable and the whole room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast is provided in the rooms, a very good selection...

Beautiful rooms, stunning gardens! This is a room only hotel but it simply doesn't matter as each room is beautifully self contained with its own kitchenette area. Continental breakfast is provided along with milk and fresh orange juice, coffee and tea. The rooms are finished to a high standard ... Simply gorgeous. We will be going back.

We stayed at Higher Faugan Parc half way through our Honeymoon as we were visiting the Minack. The house is very impressive and the room/ suite had everything we could need. Doug was a great host.
