Good Hotel Guide Review

The Le Grice clan’s ‘fantastic family home’ stands in parterre gardens and horse-grazed parkland, with lashings of home-made medlar jelly within. ‘Lovely people’, the hosts are the sixth and seventh generation of Le Grices to occupy the Elizabethan farmhouse-turned-Queen Anne manor house since the 18th century. The grand old house is filled with family heirlooms – ornate mirrors, oil paintings, antiques, a Herbert Ward sculpture or two (the artist–adventurer was an ancestor). Good-value B&B accommodation is in traditionally furnished bedrooms. Two rooms have direct access to the courtyard, but better rooms upstairs are huge, and have ‘stunning views’ over the grounds. ‘There are no fancy touches, but everything you need is provided’: tea- and coffee-making facilities, a flat-screen TV, a pocket-sprung bed. A ‘great breakfast’ brings home-baked bread, and hot dishes cooked to order; a buffet includes cereals, yogurts, fruit salad – and that jelly, from the medlar trees in the orchard. A good base for west Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly; Newlyn’s eating places and contemporary art gallery are five minutes’ drive away. (Michael Eldridge)
