“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2010

Just returned from a wonderful relaxing break at the Hen House. It is a great place to stay if you have a dog ( or dogs in our case) as your pets are made to feel as welcome as you are. The accomodation is superb, the breakfasts are to die for and Sandy and Gary are SO friendly, knowlegable and welcoming.

Their green policy is much to be admired and I can only highly recommend that you stay there.

The service was excellent. The room comfortable and spacious. I had the best weeks sleep I think I've ever had!!!!! The bed was sooooo comfortable. Breakfast was to die for with so much choice. The location was superb for exploring Cornwall. Will definitily go back again.

I loved the homely, friendly atmosphere and their beautiful dog Morgan who proved to be a good companion for my dog Leo who is the same adorable breed.

I can't say what I liked the least cos I loved it all. Try sitting out late evening by the cosy chimenea and exchanging local ghost stories!!!!!!!! Fabulous!!!!!!!!

Where do I start!? Lovely location, fantastic room (can't remember the name of the room but it was the largest one - they only have two, and a self catering barn), stylish and very clean bathroom, AMAZING breakfasts, very friendly and knowlegable owners, lovely dog!

It was nice to get away and we felt a real sense of peace and rest and romance. Ask Sandy and Gary anything and if they don't have the answer, they will find out for you! They lent us maps, can make restaurant reservations and let you know where to go and what to do. They can even give you advice about the weather which is handy if you're walking or spending a lot of time outdoors.

Incidentally don't be fooled by the slow pace of life, the area's best restaurants get booked up super quick by locals and tourists alike so think ahead and either book yourself or ask Gary or Sandy.

Highly recommended and if 'green' tourism matters to you (and my personal opinion is that is should matter to us all) they have won awards for being a green business and part of the sustainable tourism network.

Final point, if you do have pets, the Hen House is perfect for you with lots of walks and facilities including a drying room and somewhere to hose down the dog!

  • Liked — very comfy bed and lovely hosts
  • Disliked — you do need a car to get about - very remote

Set deep in the Cornish countryside on the Lizard Peninsula the Hen House is a great place to get away from city life. The owners Sandy and Gary and their dog, will give you a warm welcome and provide you with lots of local information. The breakfasts are fantastic and huge. Local suppliers are used and Sandy bakes the bread and makes many of the preserves. We stayed in the Puno room, which has a great comfortable bed and plenty of space. I particularly liked the arrangements of fresh wild flowers that were placed in the rooms. There's lots of outdoor space, a seating area that you can hang out in and a big meadow round the back of the house. The area is very remote, we wouldn't have found the B&B without satnav although Sandy and Gary did give very detailed directions. The Hen House is a lovely place to stay and the owners will do everything possible to make sure you enjoy your visit.

  • Liked — Breakfast
  • Disliked — Only one place for dinner within walking distance
