This B & B was very comfortable and clean. The hosts, Gail and Phil, were so welcoming they made you feel like you'd known them forever and the full English breakfast was excellent finished off with toast and Gail' s homemade jam - delicious!!!

Very comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation with friendly and welcoming owners. Ideally situated for coastal footpath and all the usual great beaches and attractions on the Lizard. Well worth a try if you are travelling in the area. The owners are rightly very proud of the buildings unusual history - ask them.

On our car-free South West Coast Path hike we stayed for two nights at Gail's and Phil's place. They welcomed us very heartily and always had time to talk and to give us information about the area. After serving us a delicious breakfast, Phil and Gail drove us to the starting point of our walks. A place not to miss... More

After searching the web for ages we came across the kennack bay house which had a self catering apartment. We wanted to visit many places whilst on holiday but didn't want to clock watch etc. The apartment was spacious, clean and superbly equipped and with our own entrance gave us all the freedom we wanted. It is a great location... More

Stayed at Kennack Bay a number of times. The hosts are always so helpful, the rooms clean and airy - views just stunning. Tranquil and relaxing area. Nothing is too much trouble for Gail and Phil. Need a car to get there - only public transport is a rare bus or local taxi.
