Our 4 night stay was most enjoyable. Our plan was to visit Eden Project and Heligan, both of which are nearby so location was very convenient. Sue and Dave were really welcoming and made our stay memorable. Thoroughly recommended.

Our two night stay at Allen's BnB was very enjoyable. Sue was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a small room with an ensuite which was adequate. The breakfasts were delicious. I would highly recommend this BnB which is conveniently located near many scenic sites.

Warm welcome, Sue and Dave are great hosts. Ideally located for visiting many highlights of Cornwall, Eden project, Lost gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey and Charleston. Charleston, a charming fishing port, (Poldark was filmed here) was a half an hour walk away, ideal for an evening stroll.

We stopped in Allens B & B for 3 nights. Sue & Dave are very friendly and welcomed us with scones, jam & cream! The room was lovely and spotlessly clean. Definitely a home-from-home feel to the place. The breakfast is fantastic - plentiful and tasty. It's within walking distance of the town and handy for the train station. I... More

I haven't been able to visit Cornwall for a few years but recently had the pleasure of staying at Allen's B&B again. Another extremely comfortable stay, fabulous food and superb hosts. Thanks for the hospitality Sue and Dave. Also a huge thanks for the scones you gave me to bring home, the family loved them!
