We stayed for the weekend of 25th to 27th November 2016 with two of our friends. Right from the start we were made very welcome and in the lounge/ bar/ dining room we felt as if we were staying in the owners living room.

I brought a group of Italians to visit Cornwall in September and we stayed at the Countryman, a nice quiet position a few kilometres outside St. Ives. There was a real family atmosphere which my Italian guests greatly appreciated and Robert Wilkinson gave us a special treat one evening - his excellent impersonation of Elvis Presley got them all dancing.
