Ennys is beautiful - a wonderful setting in lovely gardens and very high quality but totally relaxing accommodation. Having a little kitchen even in the B&B suites is a great luxury and adds to the ability to chill and feel at home. The hosts and staff are all very friendly - after a week we really felt we were staying with friends. Ennys is perfectly placed too - hiking distance to north and south coasts or a short walk or drive to the train station or bus stops.

I would like to thank Raph and Krisopher for making our holiday the best ever. The cottage we stayed in was just perfect in every way and the hospitality was wonderful. The grounds are idyllic, we were never out of the swimming pool and the lake is a great place to take 5 and enjoy the surroundings. Thank you for such a wonderful & memorable stay, it was the most enjoyable vacation we have had of a very long time.

What to do, what to do… when you can’t shake the dreamy state induced by a perfect vacation. Ennys, the luxury B&B located in St. Hilary, is largely responsible for transporting me to that other-worldly calm that’s achieved when your travels have been relaxing, energizing, thought-provoking and just plain fun! We were fortunate to arrive when Cornwall was enjoying a halcyon week of fine weather (June 11, 2014). After the journey from London’s Paddington Station by sleeper, we arrived in Penzance and by mid-afternoon found ourselves on our way to Ennys, located at the end of a long and winding lane off the main road that traverses the little village of St. Hilary. As other reviewers have noted, it was worth the drive. The beautiful grounds, garlanded with summer blooms, include the charming stone-walled main house, built in 1760, a cottage, and the converted stone-walled barns, where our room – The Godolphin – awaited. We were greeted enthusiastically by our innkeeper Raphs (Raphaela Applefeldt), who showed us to our bright and airy quarters. The views of the garden from this room were lovely – tumbling roses, peonies, rosemary and rustic stone walls with pastures beyond.

The Godolphin includes a sleek kitchen area with a sink, small refrigerator, mini cooktop, small microwave, toaster and hot-water pot along with glasses, cups, dishes and silverware for two and a sampler of teas, some biscuits and instant coffee. Adjacent is a comfortable leather sofa and small television with DVD player and a nice selection of movies to complement the array of viewing choices available on cable. (I spent an evening soaking up the local color with Maggie Smith and Judy Dench in “Ladies of Lavender,” while Raphs, who aims to make each guest’s experience perfect, hunted down “A Good Year” with Russell Crowe as a recommended “watch” for me another evening when I’d had a full day of hiking and touring.) A king bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of warmth under a crisp and cozy comforter (the weather was so perfect, we slept with the windows ajar most nights). Like the kitchen, the up-to-date bathroom is sleekly outfitted with a tiled shower, dual hand-held and rainwater shower heads, a built-in hairdryer and low-flow toilet (the flush mechanism takes a little getting used to if you’re an American who hasn’t experienced these). For those who prefer baths, there is a large tub with a lovely view of the garden that is sectioned off from the bedroom area outside the bathroom. I thought that having a tub just the other side of the bed would bother me, but it never did. I found the suite perfect for our needs -- charming and sophisticated.

After settling in, we took a recommendation from Raphs and her husband and fellow-innkeeper, Kristofer, and headed across the lower pasture and over the fence to the tow path along the River Hayle. This is a very scenic area to walk and, in time, leads to the town of St. Erth, where you can picnic, visit the pub or hike a little further to the train station for a trip to the picturesque beach in St. Ives (also home to the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden).

Ours was one of three suites that are not considered “self-catering.” During our visit, Ennys offered a B&B service for the suites that included breakfast at the main house served in a bright dining room off the entrance hall where a very fine portrait of King Charles II lends an aristocratic air. In addition to cereal, a variety of yogurts and fruit, a cooked breakfast was offered and was quite good. While the Godolphin suite’s kitchenette makes it easy to prepare a continental breakfast, tea, appetizers or a simple snack, it would be a shame to forego the opportunity to dine at some of Cornwall’s new “foodie” destinations like Ben’s Cornish Kitchen in nearby Marazion or the Victoria Inn in Perranuthnoe near Penzance. Both were excellent. I made reservations online for Ben’s before our departure from the states, but Raphs was happy to make restaurant or pub recommendations and reservations and call the local taxi, Jolly Roger, who caters to Ennys’ customers night and day. Roger served as chauffeur, dropping and retrieving us from our destinations on several occasions. (Mastery of the narrow roads with a left-handed stick shift was often more than we wanted to tackle.)

I can’t say enough about Raphs and Kristofer, an affable history professor, and their two daughters. Energetic, clever and interesting, they went out of their way to make our stay perfection and to help us enjoy West Cornwall to its fullest. The new owners of Ennys bring B&B experience, a sophisticated design sensibility and warmth to this lovely inn off the beaten path.

While a true country home, Ennys offers a great central location in West Cornwall for visiting many of the popular sights, such as St. Michael’s Mount in Marazion (a must see), the cute seaside village of Mousehole, Land’s End, Helston and the Lizard peninsula (fantastic seaside views and hiking), Porthlevyn (a very quaint harbor with some excellent restaurants), Penzance, St. Ives, St. Isaac and beyond.

At the end of a day of touring or if you’d prefer to rest after gadding about, Ennys has a lovely heated pool and lounging area surrounded by gardens as well as a tennis lawn. Or take a book and find a garden bench for a respite amidst the fragrant flowers. Ohh, the fragrance of flowers…everywhere during our stay…there I go back to that dreamy state…

Room Tip: The Godolphins was perfect for us. I had the opportunity to tour a number of the rooms, all wonderful, plus the Well Studio, a cottage separated from the main house and barns. It is self-catering and lovely with a full kitchen and it's own private patio. I can imagine this as a lovely place to stay rain or shine.

We are so glad we found this gem of a B&B! We weren't sure our GPS/Sat Nav was going to get us to the correct place but after driving down the narrow country road we were pleasantly surprised to find this beautiful place surrounded by green farmland, cows and huge trees.

We arrived too late to make any dinner plans but Gil had taken care of making us reservations at a local pub so we weren't left on our own. So thoughtful! There are several very good pubs nearby (Gil provides great local area information for meals, walks, sightseeing & shopping) we started at the top of her list and worked our way through it, trying them all...ate great food and got to see such charming, small villages.

Our room was very comfortable; overlooking the back garden with two large east facing bay windows where I could have sat all day in the sun reading and napping.

Breakfast is cooked to order and was yummy everyday. Fresh, organic and local food (fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, etc).

Even though Ennys is off the beaten path it is worth finding. Everything we wanted to see was within easy driving distance (Land's End, the Eden Project, beaches, St Michel's Mount, etc).

Getting to see all the stars in the sky at night with just your thoughts was a perfect way to fall asleep each night and rest before our travel-filled days.

As other reviewers have noted, the trip to Ennys can be a bit daunting, but so well worth it once there. Our suite was just perfect, equipped with everything one could want or need. Gill was so charming and helpful, from welcoming tea and cake, to excellent dining suggestions, to just plain fun chats. The breakfast was truly cooked-to-order and superb. A real gem in a beautiful part of Cornwall.
