Robin & Louella Hanbury-Tenison have handed over Cabilla Manor to their son Merlin and his wife Lizzie and have built themselves a lovely new house close by. Right in the heart of Poldark country on the edge of Bodmin Moor, this is a working farm surrounded by acres of ancient woodland and open moorland. There are horses, Highland cattle and sheep. The farm is currently being re-wilded to make the environment even more enchanting. Walks through the woods, across Bodmin Moor and along many footpaths are all close by. Half an hour's drive from both north and south coasts, spectacular Cornish beaches, fishing villages and many famous gardens, including the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the astonishing Eden Project are easily reached. The Old Deer House is an exciting contemporary building with glorious views over the countryside. There are two attractive double bedrooms for bed and breakfast guests. One has a Four Poster double bed and the other double can be made into a twin. Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with both shower and bath. The new home of explorer Robin and his wife Louella, who has been all over the world with him, The Old Deer House, is full of books he has written and interesting artefacts brought back from their travels. Their home is beautifully decorated and furnished and guests are looked after wonderfully. You will receive a warm welcome; tea on arrival, drinks, and we are happy to book you a table somewhere local for supper.

What a fabulous place our hosts Robin and Louella have in Bodmin. We would thoroughly recommend it to couples and families alike. We were welcomed with tea and cakes and truly entertained by our warm and friendly hosts. The Old Deer house is beautifully appointed and the views across the open countryside are simply stunning. Perfectly placed in Bodmin The Old Deer House enabled visits to both of the Cornish coasts and on our rainy day The Eden Project. Although The Old Deer House is a relatively new venture Robin and Louella are old hands as B&B hosts and that certainly showed in their attention to every little detail. The huge comfy bed and the fabulous breakfast and evening G&T’s did not disappoint in any way. We will be back!

Old Deer House is charming with lovely hosts in the middle of countryside with sheep nearby. Breakfast was excellent with fruit, yoghurt and honey ad well as a hot breakfast and even cereal if you want it. They offered a drink and nibbles on arrival and access to a beautiful lounge with wonderful views. Bedroom had a large 4 poster bed and both a bath and a shower en-suite. Even the placid dogs smiled at us. Happy to go back anytime.

We spent five nights at the Old Deer House and had a really enjoyable stay. Louella and Robin are very warm and hospitable hosts, and we also enjoyed getting a friendly welcome each day from Maisie and Myrtle their two West Highland Terriers! Their guest house is located in beautiful countryside with great views, and we were also pleased with our room which had a very comfortable bed and powerful shower. We would wholeheartedly recommend a stay here.

Had a three night break here, what a gem of a place, fantastic breakfast each day, spotlessly clean and a comfortable bed, Louella and Robin were very welcoming, with lots of information on the area. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely stay there again.
