Country Pub

Posted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: Owners were very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Cottage was spacious and homely.
Location: It was out of the way and a little hard to find. It was midway between Penzance and St. Ives. They had entertainment Friday and Saturday nights.
I was sick and appreciated the homely cottage to rest in for three days instead of a hotel room. My husband was able to go sightseeing and call back and see if I was ok. The owners met requests for food that I felt I could eat. The surrounding areas were beautiful.

Nothing too much trouble

Very friendly, we were even welcomed by the locals drinking in the bar as we walked through. Great atmosphere to the pub and room. Very clean and very large bedrooms in separate building to the pub so very quiet, although wind noise the first night as it was very blustery weather. This did not detract from the stay though. Just the two rooms, ground and first floor. Ample parking and open country views and only ten minutes to the centre of St Ives. We would certainly go back if visiting this area again and would not bother to look for anything else.

Great views and even better publicans

Great location just outside of St Ives with views of the heathlands. Helen and Steve were excellent hosts, very welcoming. Well-decorated spacious room. My only complaint is too-soft beds, but that’s a matter of taste, really.

A great country Inn with really nice people running it. The traditional English breakfast was excellent-the best I've had in England. The room had a funky shower that we could not figure out how to use.

Good for the Scilly Islands ferry

Staff friendly and helpful, they showed us to our room which was a converted farm building with character. Unfortunately we had to be up too early in the morning to have the cooked breakfast but a continental one was offered and was perfectly adequate including croissants, cheese and ham. The location was rural, overlooking beautiful countryside. A good place to stay if visiting St Ives.
