No hesitation in recommending Larkbeare Grange as a very pleasant B&B. Charlie and Julia are lovely hosts, very knowledgable about local highlights and restaurants and keen to help. Bedroom comfortable and sure to sleep well. Breakfast a treat too.

My wife and myself travelled to Cornwall on Sunday 31st July and chose to make two stops en-route. Due to my recent heart attack this seemed to be the best option in order to break the long journey up. We stayed in the Brecon Beacon in Wales over night and on the following day we set off to Larkbeare Grange...

What an amazing find via trip advisor ! We were warmly welcomed by Charlie & Julia and shown our delightful bedroom and shown the dining room where breakfast would be the next day.

This really is a lovely, idyllic place to stay. Julia and Charlie are lovely, accommodating people who are very welcoming in a relaxed, non-imposing way. The house and grounds are straight out of a Jane Austen novel. Wonderful house and fabulous setting with croquet lawn and grazing sheep immediately in front of the house with sweeping views over the stunning...

Charlie and Julia warmly welcome guests to their beautiful country home and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is homemade or locally sourced and it shows. From the freshly baked scones to 3 types of homemade bread for toast with breakfast (the homemade preserves are also delicious) they go out of their way to see that you are well looked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Turn into the tree lined driveway and the experience begins. With a lifetime's worth of hospitality experience between us, our vision was always to establish a retreat of our own that we could share with others and provide first class service at a fair price. Our ethos is simple - to do the simple things well and always to exceed expectations. Our beautiful Georgian fronted house, surrounded by rolling countryside, makes for the perfect backdrop - a place for all seasons where personal touches abound and nature is never far away. ... more   less
