The Experience

This new conversion behind Pippa and Hugo’s lovely B&B has a contemporary feel, a generous amount of space for everyone and views over open fields to the sea.

You’ll feel completely private here. Read a book on the squishy sofa, play games or choose a DVD from the collection in the main house; the back terrace gets the evening sun. Your foodie hosts leave a welcome hamper that includes local butter, milk, eggs and biscuits, plus bacon, sausages and Hugo’s Breakfast Cereals – so good they’re now sold in shops all over Cornwall.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream, kitted out well enough to create a three-course gourmet feast, or you can light up the barbecue and dine al fresco while you enjoy the views. Wander into Padstow for good delis, restaurants and cafes – your hosts will happily advise on the best places to go – and there are wineries, cycle routes and beaches nearby.

You'll find a wonderfully warm welcome at Gurney House - you're in an annexe to the main house, but you'll feel very private. Windows look over fields to the sea and the fresh, light interiors make for a relaxing space to chill out. I loved the generous welcome goodies and although self-catering, you can book into the main house for a fabulous breakfast!

The neighbourhood

You're only half a mile from Padstow – drive there in a couple of minutes or walk in 20. Notable restaurants include Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant or Prawn on the Lawn; a good pub, the Cornish Arms, is a five-minute drive in the other direction. Trevibben Mill and Winery offer wine tours and great food, the Camel Trail is good for cycling, and you're just minutes from seven wonderful bays for swimming and water sports - some dog friendly in summer. Grade-I listed Prideaux Place house and gardens is just a 10-minute walk.

Hugo & Pippa Woolley

Hugo and Pippa live in the main house with their sweet little dog and have a very open and easy manner. They’re a fountain of local and especially foodie knowledge and are happy to chat as little or as much as you like. Hugo was a London restauranteur and Pippa a caterer, and they moved to Cornwall from Tunbridge Wells in 2002 to run a B&B, something Pippa has always wanted to do.
