What an amazing place with lovely people - Edit

We had the pleasure of being the first guests at this fantastic B &B in July 2012. Based near Mevagissey in Cornwall a stones throw away from The Lost Gardens of Heligan and not far from The Eden Project. Kay and Simon live with their son Hugo and are a fantastic vegan couple who made us feel like we were at home from the first minute. We can't say enough positives thing about our trip, the only downside was the weather but that's Cornwall for you! The bedroom was beautifully done and large with a very comfy bed and a large en-suite bathroom with a great shower. Breakfast is included and is a very healthy and delicious, porridge filled with lots of tasty treats and fresh bread and preserves. It was very nutritious and kept us going well into the afternoon, one of those meals that makes you feel fantastic and so energised. We had dinner at the house two of three nights (£5 for two courses) and on both occasions the food was equally tasty and the portions generous. They also offer many drinks (various teas etc) and you have to try the homemade nettle beer which even Ruth loved and she doesn't even like beer usually. If all this wasnt enough they also share their home with the friendliest cat we have ever met called Flea. He's a cat in a dog's body, soft as anything, you can pick him up, stroke his tummy and he purrs continually. Kay and Simon are very lucky we didnt cat-nap him! Lupin the other resident feline is also friendly, albeit much more reserved. All of the above combined with a prime situation in a lovely part of Cornwall you would expect the price to be high but that isn't the case. At £20 per one person bed and breakfast and £35 for a couple it represents amazing value and is of course totally VEGAN!

Pros: Amazing people, Great accommodation and garden, wonderful walks

Cons: We had to leave, weather, NOTHING-BOOK NOW!!

Wonderful warm cosy welcome and family meals - Edit

Our stay here was everything we could have hoped for! The lovely home-cooked food, the warm welcome into Simon & Kay's home, and friendly advice, tips and chats made our holiday really special. The rates are very reasonable, especially for such lovely meals, and we enjoyed jamming, exchanging brewing tips and petting the gorgeous enormous cats! There was space to park, easy access to the Lost Gardens of Helligan and local beaches (walking distance) and The Eden Project (short drive or bus journey), and our hosts were extremely flexible and accommodating. The room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and homely touches. There was also a lovely local pub 1 mile's walk away, with yummy local ales and ciders and a great pool table! We were lucky enough to see amazing storm surge waves at the local beach, and the coastline is stunning. There were clearly some lovely local walks which we would have explored more if we had longer. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect visit and wouldn't change anything!

Pros: Lovely spacious and clean en suite room, Yummy home-cooked food, Good company (including cats!)

Cons: We only wish we could have stayed longer, Access without a car may be trickier
