I stayed at Glencree House as a result of a referral from the US guidebook series by Rick Steves that said tha t this was a good B and B that also did not allow dogs--a strong selling point to me as I can't be around dogs. I would note that this is not the closest B and B for railway travelers as it is close to the edge of town but this is relative as the taxi ride is relatively short. The owner was very welcoming and also very accommodating of my need for an early departure as my purpose for traveling to the area was to ride branch railway lines and had to meet someone who came down to Cornwall by sleeper train.
