“Faultless”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

From the booking process to the farewell, little could be improved in the B & B experience at Bedknobs. Fresh milk in the mini fridge, locally smoked kipper on the breakfast menu, advice about the best local taxi firm, and a very comfortable room & bed.
Even the electric shower produced a torrent of hot water (not my normal experience with such devices) so I caught my train back to London in a very contented frame of mind.

We stayed here on our wedding night ( gift from our guests). The hosts stayed up and waited for us to arrive, which was lovely. The bed was comfy and the room was spacious. The room had lovely little touches and they had thought of everything you may have needed. The breakfast was delicious and there was lots to choose from. Highly recommended for a short stay.

Gill & Kim are great hosts going the extra mile to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. They have a lovely home to welcome you into. Nothing is too much trouble. Just remember to take your slippers! If we go back to Cornwall Bedknobs will be on our list of places to stay.

Room Tip: Yew tree room has a private bathroom just across the hall.

We've stayed at Bedknobs several times now, just for a couple or three days en route to West Cornwall and the quality of our stays has never varied. The house is a lovely old one, slowly being renovated by Gill and Kim as time and guests permit. The rooms are excellent and have all the things travellers expect now (tea and coffee making facilities, small refrigerator with contents at reasonable prices if you wish, etc. Nothing is ever too much trouble and information about the surrounding countryside and beyond is readily available. All the rooms are quiet and peaceful. Breakfasts are excellent and Gill will readily prepare snacks if required. Altogether superlative!

This B&B was more than very comfortable. Every detail was considered for a great stay. The whole character of the property is lovingly cared for by the owners who have a great appreciation for the designer William Morris and all things Arts and Craft.
The facilites were some of the best I have come across in a B&B including the white and rose wine chilling in the refridgerator and fresh milk for a cup of tea/coffee.
A very comfortable bed, excellent ensuite and ambient lighting, I can thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

We have just returned home after a lovely few days at Bedknobs. We had a lovely clean comfortable spacious room with a lovely bathroom. The locally made tolitries were fabulous as was the tea/coffee and biscuits. There is a fridge in the room with proper milk left in it, not the disgusting longlife stuff you normally get. It's the little things that make this place and the effort put in by the wonderful hosts Gill and Kim. The house is beautiful and you are made so welcome. We will definantly go back.

When working away on business I don't normally stay in B&B's preferring hotels with a restaurant and a bar, however Cornwall in August can get very busy and with no hotels available locally at all I had to look elsewhere. Using Google I found Bedknobs and what a superb find! If you are willing to remove your shoes on entry you will find a supremely clean and tidy B&B. With a personal welcome I was shown to my room, individually decorated, comfy bed and with better facilities found in some top class hotels, big flat screen TV with Freesat, DVD / I pod player (Good selection of DVD's provided to choose from) and fast FREE Wi-Fi along with a mini bar and honesty box. My bathroom whilst not en-suite was private and just across from my room. Excellent shower and if I had had the time a whirlpool bath, with the softest towels ever!
Bedknobs is just a few minutes walk from Bodmin centre with a good selection of restaurants and pubs to choose from, although the walk back is mostly uphill.
Breakfast was very good with a single communal table, not something I would normally look out for but makes a change from the anonymous breakfast tables elsewhere.
Finally for the environmentally friendly amongst you, Electric car charging points are available (not sure on the cost) as well as other energy and environmental saving ideas.
Whilst the B&B is probably more suited to couples, next time when I'm in the area, if rooms are available I would definitely stay again
