“Very friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2014 via mobile

Located in an hidden narrow lane, Ragstones is a nice cottage offering a Really friendly welcome. The room was comfortable, decently equipped and a great attention to details is noticeable.
Breakfast was of a superior standard (considering the overall charges); it included fruits from the owners' garden and eggs from their chickens.
The owner goes the extra mile to please you and make your stay unforgettable.
This B&B is a good base camp if you wish to visit Fowey, eden project, etc.

Upon arrival at Ragstones we had a very warm welcome, both from the two resident dogs and the owner. Very bright and clean rooms with good facilities, tea making, water, fluffy towels and some toiletries in the on suite in case you had forgotten to pack any.

You are able to choose from a selection of breakfast choices and times, so it allows for some flexibility. We tried the Cornish breakfast which if you ate everything would require a very healthy appetite featuring local bacon, sausage, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, black pudding, toast, mushrooms and egg. All that we tried was great, the freshest eggs ever from resident chickens, and a selection of home made jams etc. Also samples the scrambled egg with smoked salmon, which was lite, tasty and delicious.

Would highly recommend this venue.

Room Tip: We gad room one which featured a view of the lovely garden and had ample room for the trundle bed fo...

Found this lovely B&B via Eden Project website. It seemed to be about 2 miles from everywhere we wanted to go during a 2 night break to the area, taking in Eden, Fowey, Charleston and Lost Gardens of Heligan.

We received a warm welcome from Jacqui complete with tea and home made cake. Breakfasts were excellent especially the "Jacqui special" of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Really good size room with lots of thoughtful touches to add to your comfort, including a conservatory overlooking the tranquil gardens. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend - excellent all round.

Found this little gem by searching the internet for accommodation near to The Eden Project and what a find it was too. From a very warm welcome following a 270 mile drive to the most comfortable bed we have stayed in a B&B to date and on top of this the cottage is set in the most tranquil location and you get a breakfast that will last you most of the day, and it is served hot and on a hot plate too, we'll impressed, all the best for the future Jacqui. Chris &Helen.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a B&B close to The Eden Project, look no further!

Stayed here whilst walking SWCP warm welcome with lovely lemon cake and relaxed in Jackie and George,s lovely garden. We were pretty shattered so had bought picnic to eat in the garden rather than have to go out to find supper - it was so peaceful and weather was lovely. Good nights sleep to be followed by breakfast of eggs from their own chickens and all set for next days walking - would definitely recommend.

We stayed at Ragstones as part of our holiday in Cornwall. As other reviewers have said, Jacqui and George are so welcoming, and it was wonderful to sit down on arrival to a lovely cup of tea and a large slice of Jacqui's delicious homemade cake! The room was spotless with a very comfortable bed and views out onto the beautiful garden. There was shower gel and shampoo in the ensuite and a full hospitality tray. Despite the proximity to the railway line it was very quiet, and we slept soundly. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice, and included a selection of homemade jams. Our dog was made to feel as completely welcome as we were ourselves! Jacqui is a lovely warm person, and when we told her about our allotment at home she gave us a guided tour of her huge vegetable garden and introduced us to her six chickens! This is a lovely place to stay, really you couldn't ask for more.
