After a hectic holiday in St Ives, we needed somewhere quiet on the way back to London and a quick search of the internet revealed this gem. The 5.30pm check-in wasn't a problem, as we'd been touring the Cornish coastline during the day and our breath was taken away when we walked into our room. It must have been converted from a small barn or store as the ceiling and timber beams were high above our heads.
The room was simply amazing and once on the huge bed, neither of us wanted to leave it. After showering in the huge and well-designed bathroom, we were ready for an unforgettable meal in the Inn's restaurant.
Being a Kiwi, my partner's knowledge of lamb is legendary: the chef exceeded her expectations with ease and my veggie dish had my taste buds singing with delight. Every course was a pleasure and the evening passed too quickly, aided by an excellent wine cellar and well-kept ales.
Saying that the Inn was out of the way would be an understatement and we'd have got lost without the TomTom or an Ordnance Survey map of the area. Many times we had to stop for sheep and lambs strolling across the single track road and even Dartmoor ponies just standing in the road staring at us, while we waited for them to wonder off. Needless to say that our night's stay in the hamlet was very quiet.
A leisurely breakfast, cooked with the same skill and attention as the previous evening's meal, concluded our stay in this wonderful venue and our best wishes go with our hosts on their upcoming marriage and continued success.
