Chris and Heidi are fabulous hosts and they chose us a room that would meet our rather specific needs. They are friendly, accessible and seem always willing to go the extra mile. The room (suite) was fabulous and the breakfast a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Thank you!

have stayed here a few times, and loved it every time. Chris and Heidi are the ultimate hosts, and really go the extra mile to make their residents feel at home... their property is stunning and they have clearly gone to some serious lengths to ensure that each and every room is stunning, and fantastically equipped. parking can be a bit tight, but still plenty for all guests.
superb breakfasts... will definately be recommending to friends and family.

Chris and Heidi deserve top ratings in every department. The rooms are warm and comfy with everything provided for and each with a personal touch. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful and you really feel welcome from the moment you artive. You might even get greeted by the house cat. Well worth a visit.

All potential B&B owners should spend a night here to see how it's done. Enormous attention to detail. Spotlessly clean. It would not be my choice of decor, but very well done. One reviewer complained it was cluttered. I can see what he means but the "clutter" is made up of almost every item you could possibly want whilst staying away from home. Lots of thoughtful little touches make this B&B stand out from the competition. The plumbing could be improved but bearing in mind the age of the property and what you pay to stay, can't really complain. Lovely breakfast freshly cooked.

Very comfortable and welcoming B&B ... the owners, Chris and Heidi were even on-hand as we entered the car park. Our particular room was well equipped, above and beyond the norm ... even bathrobes! The breakfast was very good using local produce and really set us up for the day. There are a variety of public houses and restaurants to choose from for your evening meal.

Lostwithiel centre is only a short walk and found it to be very interesting and well worth a stop-over. It seems to be the antiques capital of Cornwall as there appears to be an abundance of shops catering for this trade. The old town consists of many interesting buildings and a 13c bridge over the River Fowey.

Had a one night stay here and will most certainly be back, from a lovely warm welcome to first class facilities in the room. All the little extras from corkscrews to sewing kits to name but a few, all add up to make this one of, if not the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Breakfast was excellent, and a really lovely friendly couple, we wouldn't change a thing.

A lovely 'grand' B&B with friendly, helpful service! Chris and Heidi came out and welcomed the three of us- even helped with parking as it is a bit tight- on a hill! The room was excellent, spacious, comfortable and clean with free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was yummy but get your orders in before bedtime and pay with cheque or cash.

Room Tip: Top room- for three!
