A charming little café tucked away in a corner of Pentewan village and filled with character. On the inside it has the appearance of a little pub which makes it unique and cosy. My sister-in-law, her mum and myself sat in the corner by the open fire which was heaven and enjoyed teacakes, a latte and hot chocolate. I can...

Thank you so much for that lovely review and for the support of our - if I may say so - rather nice toilet area. We are looking forward to meeting your new little one once they finally decide to arrive ( if they haven't already as you were 2 days over due when you came in ), along with...

I often 'popped' in for tea and a sandwich, or lunch with my visiting family ~ they've always been 'very good' eating experiences... Sunshine or rain, I'm never disappointed. ✔ Friendly greeting. ✔ Freshly prepared food and beverages. ✔ Interesting and inviting environment. "Thank You" 🙏🏼☺️💐 x PS. I've included a few of my favourite photographs captured in and around...

Thank you Cornishlandwanderer what a wonderfully positive review. Hopefully we will continue to tick all the right boxes and deliver the sort of service, food and environment that we would be happy to experience when out and about ourselves. I'll make sure the girls that work along side Gill and myself see this as they do work hard and to...

We initially visited here completely by chance - needing somewhere to shelter from the rain. We had two dogs with us, so the board announcing 'very dog friendly' was welcome. Myself, my husband nd my in-laws plus canines were made extremely welcome. We sat in the lounge end and had coffees and afternoon cakes. The service was fantastic, coffee and...

Popped in here after walking the dog. It was warm, cosy, full of character with papers and books to read and very friendly welcome from the lady and a chew for my dog! We will be popping back for cake next time.

My partner and I stopped for a cream tea and it was amazing. Freshly made scones (still warm) local cream and jam, beautiful view and a lovely owner. Would definitely recommend a visit if in St.Austell, Truro or any surrounding areas!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. It is lovely when our customers tell us how much they have enjoyed our cream tea's but it's really nice of you to put it in writing. We try to make small batches of scones through out the day so they are never long out of...

Reviewed 19 September 2016

OK, so it makes sense this place, being convenient for Heligan, Mavagissey , Eden project and a large beach 5 minutes walk away. Plus, there is a pub with a good reputation for food around the corner, with other eating places a tad further afield. Perhaps a downside is the constant vigilance needed to secure parking, as there is none...

It was a genuine pleasure to have you and your rather wonderful wife stay with us for the time you were at The Cove and I must thank you for such a comprehensive review. It must have taken you ages and it is always good to get honest constructive feed back. I will look into better lighting in the room...

It was really nice to welcome you back to The Cove for the third time and to meet your brilliant dog Frank for the first time. Yes the Stable is the best room for dogs as it has it's own direct entrance, but we do allow them into the main building as well as all the rooms are big enough...

My wife and I stayed here for four days last week and we can honestly say it's the best B & B we have ever stayed at. The room was exactly what we requested, the breakfast was plentiful, but most importantly all of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble.

We called in for breakfast mid week. The staff were so friendly. If we weren't such happy campers, I'd love to stay at the b&b. The decor is fascinating and the chap ther was full of stories. The food was perhaps the best breakfast I've ever eaten. Everything was cooked to perfection and so fresh.
