I have previously left a review prior to our visit to Honeydew as the hosts were worthy of one even before our visit. Imagine my surprise when I called them again after being washed out at a campsite in Devon on the Bank Holiday Sunday. We had only booked for the Monday night so we could be with relatives and rang with trepidation in the vain hope that they would be able to accommodate a family of four and a wet tent at even shorter notice than before.
Two things to say on that - Yes they could and their names are Heath and Stacey. Oh, how we laughed!
Honeydew is a quaint B&B in the heart of the town. Heath, Stacey, their two children, Lily and Marley (even the dog) welcomed us with open arms. Their knowledge of the local area is second to none. They even showed us to the best beach to surf and Lily also gave us a tour of the town of Penzance. Fantastic people. I was almost expecting tea with Heath's mum at one point during our stay, we were made to feel that welcome! Even Stanley the dog was friendly.
I would thoroughly recommend anyone, either for business or pleasure, to stay here when in town or on route to the Scillies. The breakfast deserves special mention for the quality local ingredients and Heath's excellent poached eggs (he did tell us his secret by the way) were fabulous and served with a smile.
Good luck to Heath and Stacey in their new venture. Hope to see you next year.
