This is an upside-down house with the two B&B bedrooms downstairs – each has its own entrance from the back garden, and you wake to views over the sailing waters of St Mawes and the sea beyond. Every day Lucy puts out a fresh cake for afternoon tea – guests absolutely love what’s become something of a daily ritual and tell her that they ‘rush home to see what’s under the magic cake dome’. Orange and Chocolate and Summer Fruit Gateau are firm favourites.
Your continental breakfast is laid out on a long table in the dining room, opening onto a balcony overlooking the sea. Lucy leaves you freshly baked bread and croissants, homemade jams and compote, cereals and fruit salad, with special treats on Sundays.
Sit out on your sunny patio, delve into books and magazines – and take a stroll to the sea, the castle and Lamorran Gardens.
