This B&B is out in the country so you would need to have a car. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and we had an extremely enjoyable stay. The beds were particularly comfortable! Despite our room being a good size there was a guest lounge, and the breakfasts were excellent. Would definitely go to stay again.

We were delighted to receive your complimentary review. Thank you. It was very welcome especially at the end of a very busy season. As you mention, we are in the country, less than a mile from Lostwithiel Town. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again in the future.

My partner and I stayed at Polmena House for two nights and wish it could have been longer. Charlayne and David are truly wonderful hosts. The room was first class with superb views overlooking the Fowie Valley. We were made very welcome. Breakfast was brilliant and both David and Charleyne were able to suggest some great places to visit. We...

We were delighted to receive your very kind review and are glad that you enjoyed our breakfasts so much. We try to use locally sourced food and think that that does ensure a tastier breakfast. We are also glad that you appreciated the extra large room and the views.

We stayed here for three nights and wished we'd made it longer! The house is set in beautiful gardens with views out over fields towards the river Fowey.

Kelvedon, Essex
Reviewed 22 May 2015

Stayed 3 nights at the beginning of May. The house is in a beautiful setting; more like an upmarket hotel than a B&B in its furnishing. Rooms are very comfortable - good bathrooms. Excellent breakfast - Charlayne and David were wonderful hosts. Well positioned for touring eastern Cornwall, in particular Heligan and Lanhydrock. Will definitely be back.

This is a premier B&B in fine surrounding. Very quiet, just in the nature - a little bit out of the village. Charlayne gave a very warm welcome. We have been there as a family and enjoyed the stay, unfortunately only for two nights on our roundtrip in south England. We would highly recommend this B&B.
