Telegraph Review

Daily Telegraph newspaper logo

We were lucky enough to get a great review recently from The Telegraph - with an overall score of 9/10. "Cornish manor house set far away from the madding crowds, on a magnificent private estate of lawns, woodland and a private golf course sloping down to the banks of the sheltered River Helford. This is a wonderful old-fashioned country house hotel, where a loyal clientele return year after year."
