My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at Lower House and Callington Art School on several occasions the last year. Being non-artistic Norwegians "lost" in Cornwall we have rarely found ourselves more welcome and comfortable in any other hotel we have visited. Despite a friendly price level, this is just so much more than a B&B hotel....

I recently booked a 3 day break here with my father featuring art workshops and a stay at Lower Guest house. Our expectations were exceeded at every turn. The house is lovely, homely, spotlessly clean bedrooms with ever comfort catered for. Tessa's tuition was matter of fact yet inspiring. She is gently persistent, endlessly patient and knowledgeable. I have never...

After staying for the 6 day art course I was left very inspired to do more by Tessa'sgreat support and advice. Not only the best holiday I have had for years but also fab meals by Peter which were as artistic as anything we painted! Lovely room & such warm hosts that I felt I had lived there for years....

I stayed with Tessa and Peter for a one week art experience. I am not artistic but wanted to have a different type of holiday break for myself before starting a new job. This fitted the brief exactly!The hospitality and friendliness shown by both hosts was exceptional. Peter took great pride in preparing excellent food, served in a personal way...

We were in Calington for a wedding at the nearby Mellion International Resort - that kind of place is not our style so we stayed for two nights in town at Lower House. The place is actually a proper, fully equipped art school which looked the absolute business when we were shown round, but equally, as a bed and breakfast...

We stayed at Lower House for one night, taking all the rooms for a family celebration at Langmans Restaurant. Tessa and Peter made us all very welcome, the accommodation was good and the breakfast one of the best - and we've experienced many over the years! We would definitely recommend a stay here if you are in the area and...

We stayed due to being at a family party being held locally. Very good location for this event and Callington has a lot to offer. We stayed on a Saturday night and were warmly welcomed in the afternoon and shown to our two respective rooms. One member of our party travelling alone was offered great deal on her room, despite...

Had a great stay on our way back from a honeymoon in Cornwall. Callington itself much more than a convenient stopping point on the way back east, but Lower House was our reason for staying and it was well worth the trip. We could not have been made to feel more welcome by Tessa and Peter, and the breakfast was...

I took a six-day course at the Callington Art School but stayed out in a B&B a few miles away as the accommodation at Lower House was booked up. Tessa's art tuition was very good: brisk, no-nonsense, insightful and encouraging. Each day included some time in the well-equipped studio, and a trip out in the minivan to a beach, stately...

We didn't stay at Lower House as we had booked a place earlier but once my wife visited Tessa and Peter we discovered a real gem of a place in the centre of Callington. In terms of a welcome, great food and a service the Lower House takes some beating. The art facilities and Tessa's commitment made sure my wife...
