We were most fortunate to be able to stay with Peter and Tessa who were most welcoming and friendly and facilitated a very pleasant stay in their lovely B+B in Callington, peace and quiet whilst visiting the family in nearby St Mellion. Everything was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent with a wide and regional choice.. highly recommended.

We enjoyed a delicious evening meal which was beautifully presented. Breakfast was...

I had a thoroughly enjoyable and extremely informative week at the Callington School of Art. Tessa Sulston was a thoughtful teacher who made the week's learning into a fun adventure, taking us through the principles of painting while giving us plenty of information about important artists and their approaches to colour, composition and tone. The week included trips to the...

We have been to Lower House on several occasions over the past few years and wouldn't keep going back if we had ever been disappointed. Peter and Tessa are attentive and informative hosts, the property is old and tastefully decorated, beds comfortable and Peter is a delightful chef. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I've just come back from the most wonderful week at the Callington School of Art at Lower House guest house. Met by Peter on arrival and shown to a lovely old Georgian room to spend a week on a mixed media art course run by his lovely wife Tessa. The two are exquisite hosts who know how to balance relaxation...

What a fantastic day! Really warm welcome from tessa and husband. The class was a small one so we had almost one to one tuition, tessa's teaching style was relaxed and very knowledgeable. Lunch was fabulous , upon arrival I was asked if I had any special dietary requirements and we were served butternut squash soup followed with a lovely...

Great old house, interesting decor for each room makes it feel homely and original. We stayed so that we could visit the nearby restaurant, without appreciating what Tessa and Peter have to offer. Friendly and accommodating, we thoroughly enjoyed B&B - would definitely recommend it and will promote to our art- loving friends too!
