We are hoping to re-open on Monday 24th May 2021

The email is currently not available, so sorry, really bad timing for it to be down.  Please do use for a while.  I hope the usual one will soon be up and running again.

Hope to see you in a few months.

 Hi all,

We have taken the difficult decision not to re-open Michael House this season.  As we are caring for Simon’s elderly mother, it seems wise that we remain shut.  We hope to see you next year.

People sometimes comment on how reasonable a stay at Michael House is. They wonder whether breakfast is extra, it isn't, and are surprised that there are so many dishes to choose between for evening meals. Because the meals are planned ahead and I cook only one dish for each course, ie., everyone has the same, there is really no limit to what can be offered, apart from what is available in local shops and my skill and imagination.
Realising that charging £34.00 per person, per night for bed and breakfast if you stay for five nights or more with another person in the same room, is really slightly embarrasingly cheap, we have reveiwed our prices for 2020.
And have decided to KEEP THEM THE SAME.
Making money is not our motivator, making people happy is. As long as we make enough to get by, that is all that matters to us. By not increasing prices, we may not be able to update the bathroom in room 2 for yet another year. Yes, it is still pink!
We do charge considerably more for one night stays (£42.00 pppn) but it comes down to £36.00 per person per night for two to four nights.
And doggies are welcome, if accompanied by well behaved humans. We charge £10.00 per doggy, per stay, for up to 7 nights.
Pickle will welcome you to your room, if you would like her to, will join you, roll about a bit, help you settle, then leave. Berri will love you and demand a lot of love back, Sheba will knick your seat if you stand up and will want to sit on you. Velvet is nine now, so not as cute as here in her baby picture. All the animals (there are more than shown)can be elsewhere if preferred.
Hope to see you in 2020.

Christmas at Michael House 2019

Christmas break, 2019.

Fancy being looked after  and spoiled over the Christmas period?  Get away from it all, relax, walk and enjoy delicious festive meals!  We are offering a four night break over Christmas this year, as follows:

Arrive on Tuesday 24th December, in time for afternoon tea and a three course evening meal.

On Christmas Day, have a leisurely breakfast, which will precede a four course Christmas dinner in the early/mid afternoon.  Supper will be buffet style.

Boxing Day, another leisurely breakfast and a light lunch if you would like it.  Afternoon tea will  be served in the afternoon, and a three course evening meal will follow.

On Friday 27th, breakfast, afternoon tea and a three course supper will be on offer.  Guests will depart on the Saturday morning, after breakfast.

Four nights, partly full board, £350 per person for an en-suite room.  A single supplement will apply.

Bookings for earlier or later dates will be at the normal rate.

Comments from previous Christmas guests:

‘A wonderful way to spend Christmas’

‘What a fabulous way to spend Christmas…thanks for all the cosseting and pampering – we really needed it’

Christmas Dinner only, £35.00 per head, limited to two places, unless both rooms not booked.

we are open

We are fully open from today.  We have done a few things over the past weeks, but, today is the day we open properly!  The clifftops will soon be looking like this, from a previous year!  Fantastic time in Cornwall, May and June.  Hope to see you.

A quick update, to let you know that we will be reopening on Monday, 23rd April 2018.  We have quite a few bookings coming in.  May is often a lovely month in Cornwall, and we have some availability in May at present.

My hip operation has been a huge success, and we have had a new kitchen fitted, so are ready to welcome people. Hope to see you.
