Licensed B&B, Cornwallbed and breakfast, that being able to provide drinks with an evening meal would be the icing on the cake. We had stayed at a couple of places that had a license, and greatly appreciated being able to have a glass of wine at the end of a long day out.
We list only English wines, from Camel Valley in Cornwall and Sharpham in Devon. We do this because both vineyards produce very high quality wine which consistently wins international awards, and we believe the wines compare very favourably to those produced elsewhere.
We also stock excellent, award-winning Cornish beers (Penpont Brewery) and ciders (Cornish Orchards).
It is not necessary to eat in order to try a bottle. You are welcome to take a drink up to your room, or to sit out in the garden, listening to the birds.
