Well, when you book a place on line you feel worried about the place where you will be staying, but with Bedknobs all these are negligent. We were made to feel very welcome by Gill and Kim after a rather worrying drive across Exmoor in the floods during the week, (it was a case of through one, and then find...

We stayed with Gill & Kim for a week in September. From the outset we were impressed with the house and the rooms. Plenty of space and very comfortable with all the amenities that you need. Gill and Kim could not have been more attentive, always willing to give advice about the local area and further afield. Each morning Kim...

We were welcomed to the B&B by Gilly and immediately told about the potential issue of getting around (Bodmin is going through major roadworks) with the help of Kim and his maps there was never an issue at all. Room was lovely, this is one of those B&B's that ask you to take your shoes off at the front door...
