Bay House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The Bay House is the perfect place to experience this area. We stayed in the Atlantic Room which was beautiful with 2 armchairs in the bay window to enjoy the fabulous view and an ensuite to die for. The walking track along the cliffs edge is just at the bottom of the garden and you can walk around the bay to the lighthouse, it's one of our most memorable stays. Thank you John and Carla.

Room Tip: All rooms would have the same amazing views.

You´re looking for something special? Bay House is the most beautiful place I´ve ever been to- located on top of the cliffs with an astonishing view over the bay- my room Ocean Breeze has fulfilled every wish, it is beautifully decorated with a comfortable bed, precious luxury linen and a perfect bathroom of its own. I just wanted to disconnect for a couple of days, so I arrived late in the evening as a stranger and left as a friend some days later. Clara and John and been so warmhearted and attentively as host- undoubtedly I´ll return for another stay. There was no wish lft open! Thanks again for everthing from the lady on the bike....

ok, so I stayed with Carla for an special night in september 2012 and enjoyed the location, house and hosts so much I went back to stay in December last year to ask my now fiance' to marry me. Due to the aftermath of this I've been to busy to review till now. Thank you Carla for helping make a special day even more special.

There can't be a better B and B in cornwall! I probably spend 10 weekends a year at least somewhere in cornwall between b and b's or the camper and the Lizard is by far my favourite place and Bay house is amazing.

Breaky is ample and of a high standard and the cream teas are sublime.

Please don't listen to the negatives below and book here if you would like a 5 star service in an amazing location.

I'll be going again.

Room Tip: All very high standard. Atlantic is the better room.

Stayed two nights at this venue. Stunning views of the English Channel. Very hospitable hosts who introduced us to a wonderful local artist . Convenient to St. Ives, Land's End, and Mousehole. Home has lovely art. Choose the larger of the two rooms which has many more amenities with negligible price difference. A Wolsey Lodge property

Experienced B&B users, our stay at Bay House rates as the best yet. We luxuriated in a deliciously warm, light and spacious room and a bed that was so comfortable it begged to be slept in for as long as possible. But the best bits of the holiday were the view from the vast bay window overlooking the sea, from where we could watch the weather's many manifestations; the walks straight from the house along the coast; and the wonderful welcome and hospitality from Carla and John - which included warm scones on arrival and fabulous breakfasts. I could wax lyrical for a lot longer but the best thing to do would be to try it all for yourselves.

Room Tip: Choose the Atlantic room.

We stayed six nights in the Atlantic Room and enjoyed every minute of it. The room was spacious, light and comfortable and had personal touches that made us feel that we were staying with friends in their home. The attention to detail was to a high standard. And the views were superb. The only damp was the weather, but that was not unexpected.

John and Carla made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpful with local information. Returning from a damp walk to find the fire lit in our room and tea and scones waiting for us was an unexpected bonus.

Room Tip: Go for the Atlantic room if it is available. It is worth the money.

5 of 5 stars We were really looking forward to our stay at Bay house and when we arrived we certainly weren't disappointed. The location is breathtaking and we were ridiculously excited about our 3 night stay when we saw our

. We could look out at the sea from our pillows on our bed and woke up to the sound of the waves each morning.

John and Carla were extremely friendly and helpful hosts, doing anything they could to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. They made excellent recommendations- one being to have dinner at The New Yard Restaurant where we had a wonderful meal. We would suggest booking as it is understandably popular.

I cannot recommend this B&B enough. We were beside ourselves with excitement when we found out they had a room free for our 4 night Honeymoon anniversery

Beautiful home, beautiful people, beautiful views, just stunning! The best B&B we have ever stayed in. Would recommend the hosts to our nearest and dearest without hesitation.

On returning home, we are already thinking about when we can next visit and have fallen in love with this area of Cornwall.

Room Tip: all rooms are lovely!
