Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I stayed from 1 - 8 August and were very impressed by the whole set up. Gareth and Jane made us very welcome and the accommodation is certainly the best b and b we've stayed in. The rooms are fitted out to the top specifications and spotlessly clean. The pre ordered breakfast was first class with plenty of choice. Would highly recommend.

We stayed for a 3 night break and were instantly made welcome on our arrival, nice comfortable room, great breakfast, brilliant hosts, nothing was too much trouble from ironing a shirt to advice where to eat. Enjoyed the location, a local pub just 5 min walk away, although quite a steep walk at times. Would definitely return if in the area. Thankyou for sharing your home.

This is definitely a dream to stay in such a place - with wonderful hosts, an amazing house, amazing family, super friendly dogs. Only 10 mins to a a great beach, 5 mins to a cosy bar. I literally do not know what can be better. Thank you so much dear Jane for your hospitality and hope your triathlon was a success! We hope to be back and our son Mark still recollects warmly his wonderful stay at your amazing place.

We love this B&B!!! Its stunning! Jane is an amazing host, nothing is too much trouble. She was absolutely brilliant with our children, they loved her, so much so our son cried when we had to leave her. The breakfast was just amazing! Freshly cut fruit salad, a full English, with all fresh ingredients, which was just delicious and endless amounts of tea and coffee! The room and bathroom was absolutely spotless and beautifully decorated. Yummy tea coffee and biscuits Available which was just what we needed after a 4 hour drive. We didn't want to leave! But have rebooked for next year already and we cant wait!! Highly recommend this beautiful place to stay!!

We stayed for only one night but it was really great and I’d recommend to everyone. My daughter was supposed to be at Boardmasters which was cancelled so she was fitted in as an extra last minute. We had a lovely eve at local pub - 5 mins walk away. After a quick but lovely run I thought the breakfast was fabulous with breathtaking views. Jane was excellent company and wonderfully friendly.

Other reviewers have said it all and I cannot fault any of the other reviews. My fear is as the word gets out about this little gem in Cornwall, their availability will become less. Jane and Gareth are amongst the nicest people you will meet. (The dogs are great too) The property is amazing. The room and facilities 1st class. The breakfast was brilliant. The cleanliness perfect. The location perfect. The mayonnaise and marmite excellent (private joke) :-) I feel compelled to find a negative so here goes. Sadly they are subjected to English weather. But in all honesty this is still a great place even when raining. I will have to return soon as I will feel like I’m neglecting a friendship. I hope you have all the success your efforts deserve, but please don’t get too busy for me. See you soon.

Stayed for 2 nights with Jane & Gareth. They couldn’t do enough for us! A lovely couple with a beautiful home. The rooms were immaculate, the views of the golf course were stunning and I can’t rate it highly enough! We will definitely be staying again on our next visit.

Lovely, clean, modern home with incredibly hospitable owners. Spent three nights and enjoyed great conversation, good tips on local restaurants and sights, and left feeling like we'd made good friends. We were welcomed into Jane and Gareth's home as if we were family. Would definitely stay there again, Spectacular beach at their doorstep!
