Spent last weekend at Harmony Homestay with Charlie and Nigel and was very impressed. From the time we arrived with our friends, till the time we left (and returned again to collect shirts left in the wardrobe!) nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Starting off with tea or coffee and home made cake on arrival, they were happy to put a bottle of wine in their fridge for us and to provide glasses when we were ready to drink it in the evening.
The rooms were immaculate - we had the smaller room downstairs and our friends had one of the large ones upstairs. They offered to move us upstairs for the second night but we found the "small" room more than adequate for us and didn't put them to the trouble of making up another room. Our bed was very comfortable indeed and we appreciated the tea, coffee and biscuits provided for a late night or pre breakfast drink. And the breakfasts - Charlie does a wonderful full English ( or is that Cornish?) complete with cereal, yoghurt and as much tea, coffee and toast as you can eat! Really set us up for the day - we shouldn't have needed to eat again until tea time!
Nigel is a mine of information about the area and has all sorts of brochures and printed sheets for driving instructions along the scenic routes, rather than the main roads.
All in all, a great stay - we left feeling as though we had made two new friends and would highly recommend Harmony Homestay for your next trip to Cornwall.
