So glad we found this B&B via the Cornish Farmstay website. Really hospitable family business who had considered every comfort in the rooms. Can't say I've ever stayed in a cleaner B&B. No signs of the usual Cornish damp, nothing but fresh linen on tables, beds and towels.
Gill, the owner, was incredibly welcoming and cooks an awesome breakfast! Vegetarians are covered but as an English breakfast lover we were not disappointed. Never had such lovely bacon. There was also a choice of cereals, juices, yoghurts etc and home made jam, yum!
The B&B is a farmstay so expect to hear the cattle, milk tanker etc and smell the country air, that was just what we wanted.
The location is great for accessing most of Cornwall. We easily cycled up to Padstow on the first day (following the Camel Trail) and found the trip to Lanivet for an evening meal was also cycle-able (though it is up hill home - took about 25 minutes). Bodmin is also easy cycle distance on lovely country (virtually traffic free) lanes, taking us 35 minutes to tackle the up hill home after the trip to Padstow.
We did drive to Lanhydrock as we wanted to have a variety of waterproof and walking clothing with us (the forecast was wet but we didn't want to be in wellies in the house), less than 10 minutes and provides bike park areas.
The final trip we chose was to Heligan, about 15ish miles away. Another good experience and easy to get to from the property. Other local-ish activities include Eden (which Gill sells tickets for) and the north coast's Authurian areas. Of course don't forget the wonderful coastal walks.
Gill provides lots of leaflets of walks, tourist attractions and local restaurants both in the rooms and the dining area.
Oh the rooms, bed was SO comfy, large freeview TV, wifi in the house, plenty of hot water and central heating which we were encouraged to set as we wished. We also securely stowed our bikes (by prior arrangement)
A family business with large lovely rooms, perfect location and a wish to make the stay as pleasurable as possible. Thank you.
