My mother was attending the Rick Stein Cookery School for 2 days so I made an impromptu visit to Cornwall to be her driver. We stayed in the Maid's Room which was the cheapest room but very comfortable and very well equipped with hair dryer, tea & coffee etc etc. The breakfast was delicious with home baked goodies and fresh...

Started with friendly greeting. Nice spacious bright room, good bathroom. People enjoying the grounds of this 1600's former rectory. Honour bar was nice tough. Breakfast was great, service very accommodating for our schedule.

This beautiful old rectory, in a peaceful country setting close to Padstow, offers olde-world, stylish accommodation in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is a delight with an excellent choice of food, both hot and cold, as well as daily specials (not least wonderful muffins). The owners are most welcoming and helpful. There is a pleasant walk from the Manor...

Stayed for three nights in 'The Round Room', lovely comfortable bed, huge bath everything, spotlessly clean and fresh. Geoff and Jessica were friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts were amazing. I would love to stay again in the warmer weather as I spotted a few quiet nooks and crannies in the garden that would be lovely places to curl up...

Situated in Little Petherick just outside Padstow this place is a real find. The driveway is on the tight side so take it slowly and park on the gravel in front of the house. Ring the bell by the big wooden door and receive a warm welcome, once signed in you get a brief tour and shown to your room....

We stayed here for one night during the school half term. An old rectory full of charm and comfort. Really warm welcome, with a refreshing cup of tea that we were able to take in the lounge/sitting room area. Our room was the Cook's Room, very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast really lovely, with emphasis on local produce, kept us going...

Stayed here on their good value 3 nights for 2 offer. The first two nights we were in 'His Lordship's Room' - really spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed (king sized bed). We then moved to the quirkier 'Seigneur-de-la-Trinitie' room for the last night - quite atmospheric but because of the historic layout of the room the bathroom provided the...

Three night stay for a Photo Workshop to the area with 'Image Seen', with this as the Accommodation base, at a rate negotiated with the Workshop organizer. The standard rates are expensive for a B&B. Massive bedroom with good facilities, shower etc. comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast service and provision. But no local i.e. walkable shops etc.

I stayed in this beautiful former rectory for one night whilst I had business in the area and I really wish I'd had occasion to stay for longer. I shall have to come back for a long weekend. Upon arrival I was greeted warmly by Geoff and Jess who gave me the guided tour and showed me to my room....

I've recently spent a long weekend at Molesworth Manor in the self-catering (apart from breakfast) neighbouring cottage with 5 other people (three couples) and three dogs! The manor itself is beautiful and the cottage is really homely and comfortable. Its open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area leads off to three separate bedrooms (with under floor heating in the hallway! Bliss!) which are...
