My dive buddy and I spent a very pleasant four nights stay at the Eden House B&B in St. Keverne which is a pretty and functional little one shop, one post office, two pub village. The Eden House is a converted vicarage with off street parking for four/five (depending on how well - or badly - everyone parks!!) and was bigger than I was expecting with good sized guest rooms, nice breakfast room and a lovely long garden with pretty views towards the sea. Breakfasts were very nice with eggs supplied by the owner's free range hens and came with fresh homemade toasted bread. Towels were provided and more offered as well as tea, coffee and kettle in the room.
As a diver I could have done with somewhere to hang my wet semi-dry suit and dive kit rather than leave it outside on the wall but we were lucky enough to have fantastic sunny warm weather so it dried reasonably well outside - but would have been different in wetter, colder conditions!
Perfect location for diving off Porthoustock (literally minutes down the road) - also recommend Dive Action, boat skipper/owner Gary looked after us really well and we had some memorable dives with great visibility.
St Keverne itself is a good base for exploring the Lizard which is a wonderfully pretty area of Cornwall. All in all very happy and would stay again.
