Absolutely gorgeous grounds, rooms and breakfasts with hospitality to match. So welcoming throughout our stay, and nothing was ever to much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent with great choice and varieties available. Lots of little touches made for a very special and relaxing stay. We will definitely be returning soon... Looking forward to it already.

Turning in the large gates of St Clements hill we were met by the loveliest person at the large door of her loveliest B&B.

Top Tip: This B&B is no longer on mainstream booking sites so if you don't want to miss out on this jewel of a B&B, take the time to search for it - it will be worth it. This is such a charming B&B and we had an amazing welcome. The house was beautiful - and the weather wasn't too... More

Set in rambling grounds a short distance out of Truro, the imposing facade of this Grade 2 listed house hints at what may be within. The warm greeting from Judy makes you feel quickly at home.
