The welcome from Chris , Sally, Anna and Bieron could not have been warmer. Having Mr Hardy's comfortable room overlooking the garden with modern en suite suited us perfectly. Their home cooked and home produced food is a rarity in the places we have stayed around the country... And it was delicious! We definitely recommend the full English breakfast with bacon and sausages from their own pigs!
The comfortable ambience of the house and the stunning garden make this a most excellent yet unpretentious place to stay. Chris and Sally have a wealth of local knowledge to help you enjoy Cornwall at its best.
This is the rectory where Thomas Hardy met his first wife and their story blends perfectly with the history of St Juliot.
Our thanks to the Searles .. and Millie the dog..for their generous welcome and hospitality. We shall return!
