“This Inn is a hidden treasure.”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

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.

Room Tip: There's only two rooms at this Inn and they're both fab!

Invited by friends. Pheasant dry,tough, with no sauce accompanied by boiled potatoes.
Steak advertised at 8oz but portion much smaller. Hand cut fries would be better.
A very amateurish operation in dire need of an interested, talented chef.
Overall a poor dining experience.

What a fantastic 1 night stay we had in this beautiful inn. The room was sooo.. comfortable and clean and you could hear the stream running outside which sent us off to sleep quicker. The owners were very friendly and could not do enough for us and the staff and service was excellent. There was a lovely menu to choose from and the food was of a high standard. The little inn is set down in a valley with only 150 locals living in the little quaint village. Locals were very friendly and were happy to tell us the history of the inn. Breakfast was not served until 9am which was strange for us who are used to being up a lot earlier than this, so it was even more relaxing. The reviews left in a comments book in the bedroom were lovely to read and there was not 1 negative comment by a guest. Cannot wait to return. Thank you for a lovely stay!!

Imagine a perfect pub in a quiet English village, with great rooms, food and beer, and this is it. The rooms have been decorated to a high quality, and the bed was enormous. We had a lovely evening in the pub, which we were lucky to coincide with a beer festival, and had a superb meal, cooked properly and to a high standard.

Perfect!

Stayed here for a night in November 2009 amongst the storms. It was a welcome cosy retreat which was great value for money. The hosts, evening meals and breakfasts were all fantastic and we would definately return. The rooms are really stylishly decorated and pub is welcoming and traditional but not old fashioned. Food was great and the owners really friendly, plus free wi-fi throughout and Cornish Orchard Cider on tap......which was an added bonus! It's just a short drive from some great walking on the Moors. Highly recommended.
