Organized from overseas and Mary could not have been more helpful. Suggestions for local attractions were spot on.

"A real treat."
We stayed two nights and wished we had booked for longer. The house is beautiful and the views outstanding. The Tamar Valley is such a beautiful location and probably overlooked by visitors who head to the coastal resorts. Well worth a visit. Take the train to Plymouth, it's great. Read less

"We stayed on our way to St Ives to visit National Trust properties"
Very pleasant hosts but we struggled with the property and room being cold and damp. The buffet table at breakfast was poor just 3 boxes of cereal on a sideboard and on the first morning no milk until the host saw we were having cereal - there was no accessible fruit juices, fresh fruit salad or yoghurt - there was a continental option to cooked but very limited choice. Read less
Likes:
The close proximity to the National Trust properties we wanted to visit.
Dislikes:
The very poor breakfast buffet table a big disappointment to any other B & B we have stayed in.
