Reviewed 25 August 2011

I can only endorse what other reviewers have said.( You may not be able to walk to a pub, but you can walk to the nearby coast in 15 mins & to St. Just church in an hour.)
This really is a top class B&B.
We found the food at The Watch House very good.

We stayed in 'The Fal' room. and everything about it was indeed 5 star. This bedroom is very well appointed with lots of thoughtful touches - right down to the 2 comfy chairs and silent fridge, containing complimentary water and juices. The en-suite bathroom is large with a wonderful shower. Breakfasts were a delight. We stayed in Cockle Cottage last summer and it was the best cottage we have ever stayed in, so we were confident of the welcome and attention to detail we would find during our stay this year. This area of Cornwall is well worth exploring.

We booked The Carthouse for two weeks. The cottage, Barbara and Mark fullfilled our every need. The cream tea was delicious as were the Cornish tea bags. The cottage was spotless and spacious, with everything we needed from untensils in the kitchen to dvds, guidebooks and maps. We had no problem staying 2 weeks, there was no cabin fever on the evenings we stayed in. We did have some tomatos and veg from the garden whch was lovely. We had a problem with the radiator in the bathroom but Barbara and Mark were fantastic in getting it sorted, providing clean, dry towels and even providing a bottle of wine as an apology (there really wasn't any need!) The cottage is in a great location to explore cornwall, the only draw back is the ferry crossing at £3 a crossing (with a discount ticket). The road route is a long way round to head to the west of Cornwall.
We walked to St Mawes a couple of teas, which is about 1hr 20 walk but well worth it to escape the car and twisty, windy roads and explore! We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday and can recommend it for a peaceful, luxury stay.

We stayed in the B&B last year and booked one of the SC barns for this year. We stayed in The Carthouse which we absolutely loved. Beautiful decor, spacious and every detail thought of - even games to play on those rainy days (yes, even in Cornwall in summer!). Our daughter stayed in the B&B again this year and is hoping we will be booking again for next year!
We cannot fault Barbara and Mark in either the B&B or SC, they surely deserve all the accolades and awards - they have got the recipe right and it would be hard to improve upon.
Thanks again for another remarkable stay.

We stayed in the Dairy cottage and it was wonderful in so many ways. A great welcome from the owners and after a long drive it is great to walk into such a superbly equipped cottage. It was spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard with lots of those little extra touches that mean so much. It is very relaxing and a great base to visit so many of the beautiful areas of Cornwall. We were also spoiled by the variety of lovely pubs for our evening meal, many recommended by Mark and Barbara (the owners).
If you love quality coupled with peace and relaxation, this is for you.

Stayed here in July 2011 for a friend's wedding near St Mawes. It was a lovely place to stay. There was a bit of confusion around our reservation, as we had booked two rooms but only one room was available- however the owners more than made up for this with their helpfullness and accomadation. The beds were so so comfortable and the shower was very nice with good water pressure and white company toiletries. The breakfast was delicious with a huge variety of fruits, cereal, and hot cooked breakfast. I would definitely come back to stay here and St Mawes is a beautiful and serene place to visit. While you are there definitely book a table at the newly opened Watchhouse!!! :)

We had a 2 night mid-week stay in the Fal Room (King Size or twin). Room was lovely, bathroom fab with overhead 'drench' shower---no bath. White waffle robes, mini-fridge with water and fruit juices (complementary) and fresh milk in a jug (bliss!). Coffee grounds in sealed bags (including decaff) and a caffetiere in bedroom. TV, DVD, books and films in room, as well as Cornwall Magazines. Loads of info about the area inthe hallway.
We were welcomed with a lovely Cornish Cream Tea, and I swear that the scones were the best I've ever tasted. Breakfast was very varied, of high quality and generous portions.
We loved it. But be aware, it is adults only; the owner has 2 lovely friendly dogs, so not so good if you hate dogs; you can't walk to anywhere from there---it is very quiet and isolated. You need to drive to the nearest pub. But if you're OK with all of that, it is a blissful place to stay.

Room Tip: Fal room as above. 1 other room for B&B. Double bed rather than twin/king with slightly bigge...
