The SpaceWelcome to a stay in our home in this special place in beautiful West Penwith, Cornwall situated in both a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty and within a World Heritage Site. Come and experience beautiful Cornwall as Spring develops. It will be migration time very soon for birds and we are brilliantly placed here between North and South coasts to see the comings and goings! The Drift reservoir is just 3 miles away and Marazion and Hayle Nature reserves within 15 minute drive. We offer the choice of 2, lovely spacious, ground floor, double rooms, preferably for stays of two nights or more, with free, safe parking. Both of our rooms are en suite and both have their own, separate entrance with locks on both exterior and interior doors. In this room, "The Stable" you will sleep in a comfortable, queen-sized bed, with quality, cotton bed linen; you have an en-suite, walk-in shower room, tea and coffee-making facilities and a treat or two! Books, local information, additional cosy blankets complete your comfort and invite complete peace and relaxation. We provide free, high-speed internet connection for your phones, lap tops or tablets. You have your own entrance and a space to sit out and enjoy the morning sun as you have a first cup of tea in the company of our swallows that return each year to use our barns to breed and raise their young. This room may be suitable for people with limited mobility but unfortunately not suitable for someone who is dependent upon a wheelchair. The room is not suitable for children under six. For guests staying for 3 or more nights we are able to offer an evening meal. Choose from a "tray meal" in your room or a three-course meal in our dining room. Charges are between £8 and £20 per person depending upon menu chosen. Please....I really do care about your comfort and your stay. I consider that I offer exceptional value for money and thus am not able to offer deals for stays shorter than a week. Please ask about prices for longer stays. I am unable to accept bookings for single nights during late July and the whole of August.
Why not consider a longer stay out of the main holiday season? If you are seeking peace and quiet in which to write, compose music, paint, explore the environment in greater depth, or simply to take time out from your everyday life this is the perfect place. Free access to super-fast broadband will keep you speedily in touch with wherever you need and we can offer attractive, off-season deals depending upon length of stay. Please contact directly about this. Our speedy, internet connection will also appeal to the business traveller.
Pets: We are willing to welcome one, very well-behaved dog to come on holiday in this room. Please ask in advance; it is for £5:00 a night for your dog to stay. We ask that you bring their own bedding together with towels, feed and water bowls. We prefer that visiting dogs do not go into our garden or into any other areas of our home and ask that your dog is not left unattended in your room. We are right off any made-up roads, there is lots of space and dogs can easily and safely be walked straight from our house. Our own dog, Cassie will make a loud noise when you come but will be very hospitable once you are settled in. Guest AccessGuest Access

Interaction with GuestsThis is our home and are pleased to assist and welcome guests but not to intrude during your stay. We enjoy meeting other people and getting to know about their lives and sharing ours; however, we appreciate that some people go away to be peaceful and contemplative and we quite understand if you would prefer to be more private. Guests are welcome to sit out in our garden. The NeighborhoodIf you are looking for the "real" West Cornwall you will find it here.
