Come for the position: the sea and Fal estuary wrap around you, and the King Harry ferry gives you an easy reach into the glorious Roseland peninsula. Inside find comfy bedrooms with homemade quilts on the beds – the twin with a sofa and old-fashioned charm, the double with stunning sea views. Jinty rustles up delicious locally sourced breakfasts with homemade jams, and you eat in the conservatory that looks south over the sea. Trelissick Gardens, with its intriguing newly opened house, is a 20-minute walk – worth visiting for the view down the Fal alone. From there you can catch the ferry to Truro, St Mawes or Falmouth.
