A little Gem of a B&B – October 2023 review on Tripadvisor

On arrival Chris made us feel very welcome and provided us with a complimentary cream tea. The room was very clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable. The food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, Chris went out of his way to accommodate our needs. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. We will look forward to returning in the very near future.

We could not help but be very impressed by Chris Pitches who runs this very well-located DB&B almost entirely solo, preparing a variety of very well presented breakfasts and dinners each day for 4 guests during the 6 nights we stayed in his home.

Great B&B – Via Tripadvisor, Nov 2023

A very good B&B. Chris is a good host who does a great job by himself with keeping everything clean & tidy and cooking great breakfast & evening meals. There is a good varied choice of food for both meals. We stayed in the gold room & the views of the coast were excellent. Thanks Chris

Best in Cornwall

Another fantastic stay.Chris, with 3 visits last year and a 2nd visit already booked for this year, you really do make us feel welcome.

Your breakfasts must be the best in Cornwall and everywhere is spotlessly clean.

Cream tea on arrival and Cornwall mags in room are a lovely recent addition. Thanks Chris
