The only thing wrong with our stay at this fantastic place was it was only for the one night, Alan and Katie make you welcome from the first step over the threshold, nothing is too much trouble for them and their willingness to help is outstanding. We stopped in the room called 'The Loft' which was immaculately presented and has...

We stayed in Sheriff Lodge for 3 nights and couldn't have been made more welcome. We stayed with our dog and The Warren was perfect for the last trip into the garden in the evening. We tried hard to think of something which was missing, nothing was! The extra touches were faultless, even down to a dog bowl should you...

My husband and I stayed a couple of nights at the end of Oct. Booked the B & B based on the comments on trip advisor. Was not a disappointment. All the lovely comments written by people who had previously stopped were correct. Kate served us tea and cake on our arrival which was a lovely touch. The sherry was...

We basically took over Sheriff Lodge so that our whole family could stay together and celebrate my Father's 70th birthday. It was our first visit and this special occasion was made even more so by the way in which Kate and Alan looked after us. A warm welcome, beautiful, clean, well equipped rooms, unbelievable breakfasts and such friendly hosts. Lots...

When we arrived we were greeted by Kate who was very friendly. The B&B is a beautiful Victorian property with many original features. The rooms are really clean and the beds are enormous. Many extra litlle touches such as an emergency box in the wardrobe which included things like make-up wipes and toothpaste. The breakfast was fantastic (too much for...

This was our second visit to Sheriff Lodge this year and everything about it was as great as we remembered. Kate and Alan make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive with tea or coffee in the lounge (and a delicious home made cake) and provide numerous extras to make your stay special. We stayed in the Mousehole...

This place is a really special guest house. lots of parking, massive room - even complimentary port and soft drinks in the lounge! the room was very nicely decorated, all matching curtains & bedding etc. Nice towels and a great shower. Couldn't ask for better - even from a more expensive hotel. it's about a 5-10 minute walk into town...

AlanJ Thanks for your great posting - lovley to see we are being compared to 'expensive hotels' :-) ...but your comment about the choice from breakfast needs some clarification from us I think. You mention that 'when you order from the massive menu you get just one of each thing'. Well, the reason we offer a choice at breakfast is...

I have stayed in many B&B's during my years and have found the Sheriff Lodge to shine above all others. The owners, Alan & Kate are exceedingly friendly & informative.
