We really enjoyed our stay. The food was absolutely faultless. We enjoyed seeing your gardens and thought they were lovely. Thank you for making our weekend break very worth while. The chocalate desert was the best thing I have ever tasted.

We were welcomed by the owner Mark and shown to our room. This was a little small but exceptionally clean. The separate shower and toilet was adequate. The Inn is exceptionally well placed for visits to Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown etc etc. Breakfast is served in the Conservatory and is extremely good.
