Fieldings Guest House, 35 Treyew Road, in Truro, is the perfect location for seeing Cornwall. Mike and Averil Inglefield are the perfect hosts. The en-suite room we had was bright and quiet, the beds were comfortable, and the food was fabulous. Guests have the choice of a full English breakfast (eggs, Canadian bacon, sausage, potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms) or a continental breakfast (cereal, croissants, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices, tea, and toast). What I loved most about Fieldings was the books. There are books everywhere – in the bedrooms, bathrooms, dining room, hallways. There are books about Cornwall and England, as well as novels set in Cornwall. They also have a wonderful collection of children’s books. Guests are welcome to take the books to their rooms.
In addition to having a B&B that is centrally located for touring Cornwall, Mike Inglefield is an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide. We hired him to drive us for three days. He knows every road in Cornwall. The money we paid him was so well-spent. We were able to view the magnificent scenery while he drove on those impossibly narrow Cornish roads. He took us to places we never would have found on our own. He also knows great places to eat. I will never forget the Knickerbrocker Glory he convinced me to have in a small café on Lizard Point, the southern most point in England! I don’t know what was more unforgettable – the ice cream sundae or the breath-taking scenery all around us. Mike offers five tours that cover the whole of Cornwall or guests can self-design a tour. Mike was so accommodating to even our strangest requests. Being Daphne DuMaurier fans, my traveling companion and I wanted to see Frenchman’s Creek. With his ordinance maps, Mike found it and and we tramped through the woods to reach it. To see the tours that Mike offers, check out: http://www.cornwalltour.com/. With so much to see and such narrow roads, I highly recommend hiring a guide like Mike Inglefield.
