Just returned from a 4 -night stay at the Roundhouse Barn. This is not a run-of-the-mill B & B; you really do feel like house guests. After being shown our spotless and well-appointed bedroom (the Minnack), Barbara and Mark then offered us home-made, freshly-baked scones with jam and cream (and we didn't say 'No'!). Questions about places to eat in an evening were followed up by Mark kindly ringing and making reservations at our chosen restaurants (the Watch House in St Mawes was a definite winner), though the wonderful breakfasts on offer at the Roundhouse are hard to beat. Returning from a walk, you will be asked if you would like a pot of tea or coffee; they are not intrusive hosts, but warm and very hospitable ones. You are not only given a key to your room but also a key to their home, which marks this place out as a 5-star experience.
