Our host, (who I'll come on to later), had helpfully emailed earlier in the day to aid us with directions. Upon arrival at...

We stayed for only one night. We were welcomed by the owner who gave us a tour of her delightful garden. The room was very comfortable and, unusually for the UK, has a proper shower that works! The staircase is steep with open treads, but there is a lift for those who require assistance. Breakfast was excellent with a wide...

A perfect place to stay if you want to explore the wonderful Luxulyan valley by foot. The hostess is marvelously friendly and the room and breakfast really good. There is a very well kept garden as well, where you are encourage to sit and read or just stroll about. A place we'd love to visit again for sure!

Clean rooms and bathrooms, lovely grounds and a very friendly host, Liz. She's passionate about her garden and knows the area well. Ask her to recommend to you the best pubs and restaurants and what to visit. Only 15 minutes drive away from Eden Project. And a perfect location for day trips into Padstow, Port Isaac, Landsend, etc. Wifi connection...
