Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Simply outstanding, bordering on the spectacular,’ writes a regular visitor to this Victorian former rectory with views of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor. ‘We’ve discovered a real gem here!’ writes a newcomer. The owners, Nigel and Sharon Reed, are ‘perfect hosts, full of helpful advice regarding local attractions’, among them Tintagel Castle, legendary birthplace of King Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon. An Arthurian theme continues in the bedrooms. Bedivere and Lamorak each have a four-poster bed, Tristram a French-style sleigh bed (king-size, of course) and Cornish tin ceiling. At night the host cooks a ‘superb’ dinner, while his wife is in charge of desserts, both making use of ‘fresh, natural, locally sourced ingredients’ to create the likes of slow-roasted, pressed belly of pork with cider reduction jus; rhubarb fool with cinnamon-glazed wafers. Breakfast is ‘a real treat’, with ‘scrumptious’ locally caught kippers, home-made bread and jams, Cornish butter, Davidstow Cheddar, Cornish ham, Pendragon rarebit. You can bring your horse; there are stables next door. Packed lunches can be ordered for days on the hoof. (Chris Davison, William Blair, Ian McGiver)

Guest comments

'A wonderful surprise! Nigel and Sharon are perfect hosts, full of helpful advice regarding local attractions and directions, and excellent chefs. The fixed menu dinners were sophisticated and wonderfully prepared and presented. Pendragon is also extremely eco-conscious, a commitment that is obvious in the commitment to energy conservation, but also in Nigel and Sharon's careful use of fresh, natural, and locally-sourced ingredients for the meals that are served. Altogether an excellent choice in a beautiful setting. ' - William Blair - September, 2017
'An exceptional house with exceptional host and hostess! The warm welcome from Nigel was a portent of a truly memorable stay. Our ensuite room was very comfortable. The guests' common rooms are cosy. The food is a treat. All ingredients are locally sourced. Breakfast will make you rise in time to enjoy this wonderful offering; my wife's kippers were the highlight of her mornings. Dinner was a nightly tour-de-force. ' - John Walters - June, 2017
'My colleagues and I stayed here last night. The Reeds were wonderfully hospitable. Superb breakfast overlooking a fabulous view of a misty valley. We had booked too late for dinner, but Nigel took us by car to a nearby gastropub and he offered to take me to the station later that morning. ' - Michael Crick - April, 2016
