Great location, great host, all but one room ensuite, full use of all facilities. Total of 16 of us and there was room to get some peace if needed. Kitchen is a commercial one but there are printed instructions for all the more complex appliances. Having a bar meant that there was not the pull from the pub next door,...

We stayed here for a week as a large family of 16 (9 adults and 7 kids). It was fab. St Agnes is lovely with lots of pub and great beaches there and nearby. The house is really spacious. We could all get round the dining table and the kitchen is set up for mass catering! 3 microwaves and 2...

We were made to feel most welcome by hosts, Ali & Geoff, from the moment we arrived and our room was every bit as welcoming: bright, clean and homely with good storage and an excellent shower. It somehow felt more like staying with friends than a commercial B&B.

We were 8 adults, 8 kids and 3 dogs and stayed at The Porthvean for a week over New Year. It's perfectly suited to a large group with well spread out rooms and en suite facilities for all bar one room (which had its own bathroom next door). The decor is dated but everywhere is spotlessly clean and well kitted...

Spent two comfortable nights at the Porthvean. We were so lucky with the weather. When we arrive we were greeted & shown to our room by Geoff. The room had a large queen size double & also 2 single beds ideal as a family room which overlooked the church & centre of St. Agnes. An ideal place to people watch....

My husband and I invited our three children with their families (19 altogether) for a weeks holiday. The Porthvean was ideal, plenty of room for everyone and facilities pleased all the grandchildren from 3 year olds to 23 year old! The games room, sauna and hot tub were favourites! The kitchen was so well equipped it made catering for large...

This is the second time we have spent a week at the Porthvean and it just gets better and better. Geoff is a great host and is there if you need him but not intrusive. The accommodation is lovely with all the amenities you need. The location is perfect, within walking distance to shops, pubs and the beach so we...

The place doesn't look like much from the putside, but the inside leaves very little to be desired: decent sized room with well appointed barhroom. Totally quiet even though it's on the main village thouroughfare, with p,enty of earing options within walking distance. The breakfast was scrumptious and the friendly host easy to talk to.

Hired the house out for a week. Very interesting building with great character. Rooms were perfect for our party, and the kitchen facilities were excellent. House was very clean when we arrived. Hot tub was a hit with our party, and the provision of a gas barbecue perfect. The location in the village was ideal with bakery, butcher, veg shop...

Maybe best B&B around the area with smashing hosts. Excellent location so best also for group rentals. Stayed B&B and earlier weekly rental and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects. Recommended.as ideal for family or friends groups with nearby pubs and restuarants.
