Stayed one night in a family room. A lovely peaceful place with owners that really know how to look after their guests! Our daughter loved her separate interconnecting room and quickly went about making it her own! Room quiet, warm, clean and comfortable with plenty of nice touches. Breakfast superb with plenty of choice. Lovely gardens and a great location...

First class service, high standard of decor and the breakfast is really is as superb as some of the other reviews make out. Make sure you allow some time to visit the nearby village of Cockington. Great experience all round.

Such a helpful, friendly and receptive welcome - far above and beyond. After a difficult time with a car break down, Lisa was so understanding and kind, staying up late for us, having already gone to such lengths to accommodate our family in such comfortable family rooms. 3 young children in one excellent room with plenty of space, interjoining our...

We needed a break in a quiet b and b. This certainly topped that. The Riviera room was large, light and clean with a sea view.. Everything was modern and luxurious.
