I had the most lovely long weekend stay at Trenowan with a group of close friends. We were treated to tea and home made rock cakes on our arrival - a sign of the superb treatment we were to get for the remainder of our stay. Hosts, Viv and Iain are warm, thoughtful, informative, helpful and friendlly in equal measure. The rooms are beautifully furnished without compromising on comfort. The position of Trenowan provides awesome views and is a great starting point for some truly stunning walks along coastal paths. I shall be returning with my family at the first opportunity!

We have just returned from the most wonderful weekend at Trenowan b&b in Tintagel. Nothing is too much trouble your hosts Vivienne and Iain. From the welcome tea and homemade - warm from the oven - rock cakes! To the enormous organic, locally produced breakfasts which kept us going all day long - this place is just perfect. We can't wait until we visit again!

We have just returned to Hampshire after a break in Cornwall and a stay of five nights in the esquisite home of Vivienne and Ian.. The rooms are spacious and oh so comfortable, Vivienne and Ian thought of everything to make our stay memorable. The welcome on arrival was friendly and accompanied by freshly brewed tea/coffee and home made cookies. Breakfast was always served freshly cooked, with style and beauty and generous portions. The bacon and sausage are truly outstanding!This is gem of a B&B run by two outstanding hosts who deserve these rave reviews. I don't think a pub or hotel in the area can possiblly match trenowan. We enjoyed every minute of this five star experience!

Room Tip: All rooms superb, but try Blue Room.

Superlatives written about this place are all accurate! We stayed 4 nights and only wished we had longer. Our hosts were just wonderful; helpful, friendly and informative in just the right measure. We don't hesitate to recommend Trenowan!

This is the best B& B we've ever stayed in in the whole world. The house is in the most glorious position, three minutes walk from the cliff path with views of the sea from both rooms. When we arrived we were brought tea and homemade rock cakes, which we ate in the dedicated sitting room looking out to the garden. Viv and Iain are astonishing. They radiate warmth, consideration and interest, offering maps, sunhats, beach chairs, restaurant tips, walking advice and interesting conversation - but all of this only if you want it. If you don't, they will melt away, appearing every so often to refill your coffee or put more bottles of water and kitkats in your room. The beds are exquisitely comfortable and the breakfasts are of the highest quality. I've never before had unlimited fresh fruit salad in a B&B...

Hospitality, room, food and location all spot on. Trenowan offers tremendous value for money without compromising on quality in any way. Highly recommended and thank you again to our hosts.

We (myself, my fiancee, my mum and her partner) stayed at Trenowan for 2 nights and loved every minute of it. Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time at this beautiful B&B, as we were out exploring Cornwall. Both rooms are large, luxurious, and very comfortable. The whole place is spotlessly clean and the bathrooms are lovely too.
The breakfast was enormous and absolutely delicious.
Viv and Iain were the perfect hosts. Friendly, helpful, but never overbearing, nothing was too much trouble for them. We felt as though we were staying with friends. All of their recommendations for places to visit and eat at were spot on too.
We found Tintagel a lovely place to stay - a quaint little Cornish village away from the bigger tourist towns, but close enough to drive to many different places to visit. The location of the B&B and the view over the coast is spectacular.
We will recommend Trenowan to all our friends and we hope to be back one day!

Room Tip: Both rooms are beautiful - you can't go wrong.
