We loved this B&B. It was recommended by friends which is usally a good start. Not the easiest place to find, we approached it past the Falcon Inn and turing left at the Village shop - you come to a ford which we looked at and decided not to try it (we used it regularly during our stay, it just looked a bit daunting at first sight!) - you can get to it from the top road too if you don't want to use the ford.
The B&B itself is beautiful. The owners, Andy and "H" have added an extension on to the back of a converted barn. The extension is lovely, it's got underfloor heating in each of the rooms and bathrooms. We stayed in the twin room which is upstairs with its own entrance. You have to go outside to go into the sun room for breakfast but that's no big deal. The sun room is lovely and is there for use by both the rooms (the other room is a double and is entered through the sun room. The sun room has a fish tank sunk into the floor which is lit at night - beautiful.
We were greeted with coffee and homemade flapjacks which were delicious and the flapjacks were also available in the rooms every day which was a nice touch.
Be warned there is no wifi or mobile signal in the hotel so do your research before you get there - or alternatively ask Andy who is a font of local knowledge and will make suggestions for you as to where to go and where to eat. He'll also make reservations if needed too (many restaurants, the good ones anyway, tend to get very busy so best to book if you can). Andy recommended the St Kew Inn when we were up at Tintagel, lovely restaurant, very busy and a bit difficult to find but worth it!
The room we were in was spotless and a very good size. We had a shower room with a lovely big shower.
The B&B is very rural but is well placed to explore. The village inn and shop are a very short stroll away and the shop has a tea room at the back (took them about an hour to serve us two lattes so be warned!).
Would definetely recommend this and would definetely stay again.
