A truly wonderful B&B that exceeds the 5 stars I've awarded it. Denise and Clive really have thought of everything to make a stay there comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable - nothing is too much trouble for them. The entire house is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated / furnished to a high standard with added touches that make it feel personal. The...

Clive's hearty breakfast was delicious and as the B&B had a centrally located spot in the village square, the breakfast set you up for a busy day of...

Denise and Clive have a beautiful B&B and it is very easy to feel comfortable there. Good beds, nicely furnished rooms, a very yummy breakfast (try the cornish one) and even bathing gowns when your bathroom is next door. Furthermore they are very understanding and accommodating - and they put my mum's mind at ease when something went wrong. Would...

Not being a lover of B&Bs it was nice to be so surprised by this one. From the moment we set foot in the Old Temperance we was greeted with a warm welcome and a fabulous couple, Clive and Denise, who could not do enough for us. The room was tastefully decorated, with a lovely comfortable bed and spacious bathroom....

Having pre-booked, Denise welcomed us by name as soon as we knocked on the door, having walked in from Coverack. She thoughtfully gave us a tray for our heavy boots and showed us to our room. What a clean, tidy and immaculate property. Denise was so friendly, and soon had us settled with our breakfast order taken and general instructions...
