Wonderful food, hosts, and surroundings

Our family of 4, 3 Veggies, 1 Vegan, had a wonderful time with Vanessa, Simon, and their 3 doggies as hosts. We selected this location based on location, combined with a focused vegetarian menu. Michael house is a very warm, homey place, furnished with a mixture of antiques and African pieces, and very vegetarian focused. Our rooms were very comfy. We had two rooms, across the hall from one another, each facing the ocean. Each room had a tea setting for in-room tea and ginger biscuits, as well as vegan soap in the bath. Vanessa kindly served us tea after a long train ride from London and car ride from Bodmin, which she offers. Food was excellent. We had 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners. Each morning offers a similar choice of fresh baked break, muesli, and vegan or vegetarian offerings - plenty to choose from. Evenings you work with Vanessa to find items from her suggested menu that work for all guests. One night we dined with other guests, another night we dined ourselves, and another we dined out. Dinners were outstanding and we found ourselves quite satisfied. She is a very good cook.
Perhaps the highlight for us is the proximity of Michael House to Trebarwith Strand and the Cornwall Coastal Walk. We brought no automobile, but instead took to walking every day across cliffs to Tintagel, and enjoying the breeze and sun. As our first introduction to Cornwall, it was a fantastic stay all around. Oh, and if you love dogs, you have a bonus.
