Family run and fantastic customer service. Highly recommend 😀 Room was very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was luxurious and good quality products to use. Local produce sourced for breakfast. You will skip lunch after the mass of food on offer for breakfast.

Set back from a main road on the outskirts of Bodmin, this historic property provided a great overnight stay during our journey to western Cornwall. Our room was in a rear annex and tastefully furnished with good facilities. The staff were very friendly and cooked an excellent breakfast!

Comfortable room and excellent service at this family run B&B. Breakfast, a great shower, large, tidy rooms, plus free wifi were all highlights. As was the handy location just off the A30, near a lovely village with one of the best fish and chip restaurants i've visited. Stayed 3 nights, with friends and would do so again as the location...
