We spent five nights at the Fountain Inn and have just returned home. The hosts Pete and Jennifer were very attentive and the room was immaculate. The breakfast, which you choose the day before, was lovely. All locally produced foods and cooked beautifully. Jennifer was...More

We booked last minute (on the day) after out tent blew down whilst camping. We had a really lovely stay. They handled the COVID 19 restrictions really well and it didn't impact our stay. They were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The...More

Stayed here last night. I'm amazed by some of the reviews on here regarding being asked to take muddy, wet shoes off etc. The lovely couple who own and run this B&B have obviously put in a huge amount of work on renovating this old...More

I actually don't know where to begin with how bad our experience was here. - we arrived to a landlady who misinformed us about our ship time to Scilly. Because of this she said we couldn't have a cooked breakfast. She didn't really offer an...More
