We stayed here for one night during the school half term. An old rectory full of charm and comfort. Really warm welcome, with a refreshing cup of tea that we were able to take in the lounge/sitting room area. Our room was the Cook's Room, very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast really lovely, with emphasis on local produce, kept us going...

Stayed here on their good value 3 nights for 2 offer. The first two nights we were in 'His Lordship's Room' - really spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed (king sized bed). We then moved to the quirkier 'Seigneur-de-la-Trinitie' room for the last night - quite atmospheric but because of the historic layout of the room the bathroom provided the...

Three night stay for a Photo Workshop to the area with 'Image Seen', with this as the Accommodation base, at a rate negotiated with the Workshop organizer. The standard rates are expensive for a B&B. Massive bedroom with good facilities, shower etc. comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast service and provision. But no local i.e. walkable shops etc.

I stayed in this beautiful former rectory for one night whilst I had business in the area and I really wish I'd had occasion to stay for longer. I shall have to come back for a long weekend. Upon arrival I was greeted warmly by Geoff and Jess who gave me the guided tour and showed me to my room....

I've recently spent a long weekend at Molesworth Manor in the self-catering (apart from breakfast) neighbouring cottage with 5 other people (three couples) and three dogs! The manor itself is beautiful and the cottage is really homely and comfortable. Its open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area leads off to three separate bedrooms (with under floor heating in the hallway! Bliss!) which are...

This is a character full house, with a warm welcome. I would emphasise the following: 1 The two very large and well furnished general guest rooms downstairs. 2 The individual character of the bedrooms, full of interest. 3 Excellent location, immediately adjacent to riverside and coastal walks- plenty of information in the house to guide and inspire. 4 Secure parking...

We have a great mini break and really enjoyed Molesworth Manor. OK so it lashed it down with rain occasionally, but that's England. Her Ladyship's room was great and the breakfasts were very good. Local restaurants get booked in peak season to reserve in advance. Geoff the host's dry wit was something to behold and overall we had a great...

The Manor was lovely. The access to the main road is a bit scary. But not much the owners can do about that. Had a ball reading the numerous reviews of the property from previous guests over a cup of tea in our room. Was a bit disappointed that I did not meet Geoff ( Basil ) as we came...

My partner recently bid for a night's stay at Molesworth Manor, in a charity auction and won. I have to admit to not being overly impressed, as we only live an hour's drive away and I couldn't see the point of staying in a B & B for a night, when we have a lovely house so close. We managed...

Spent a lovely couple of days here last week. It's beautiful and has lots of character. We were greeted and shown around by Debbie, such a lovely lady and so friendly. The breakfast was very nice. The only negative from our couple of days has nothing to do with the manor its Padstow cabs! Very unreliable but there are plenty...
