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.

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.
Just to let you know that we will be shut for the remainder of 2017 and the first few months of 2018. This is because I, Vanessa, am having a hip replacement operation. Hoping to be up and running, literally, again by the spring. Many apologies and hope to see you soon.
I run a vegetarian and vegan guest house in north Cornwall, with my long suffering husband Simon, who also has a tree and garden businees and often has to help here when he gets home! We love the contact with people the guest house brings and providing people with good food and a relaxing environment. I have just become vegan (Sept 2009) and am trying to link with lots of vegans to find out how to do it! I love making cards and painting, and felt making (hm, will have to rethink this to use soy and bamboo fibres eventaully) is my passion of the moment. Our animals are very important to us and tend to take over my blog. They have April 2009) been granted their own blog, in which Ted the cat will tell all the secrets we didn't wish to share and the dogs will talk about how lovely everything is!
