“Romantic small country house hotel with 16 rooms and famous restaurant. Built 150 years ago for the mine captain, when the Tamar Valley was filled with copper mines, it offers glorious views, lovely grounds, gorgeous rooms, a palpable sense of peace and great food. Rooms in the Main House are traditional, whilst those in the Garden House are more contemporary. Most rooms offer fabulous balconies and all feature ViSpring beds, bathrobes & luxury toiletries. 2015/16 awarded 4 AA Star Hotel with 3 Rosettes for fine dining.”
