Why the wow factor? . Wow 1 - the aroma of our evening meal cooking when we arrived. Wow 2. - the view from our room (room 2) over the valley towards Trebarwith Strand and out to sea. Wow 3 - the food - from the first mouthful of mushroom, walnut and puy lentil pate on our first night to the last speck of chocolate pot on our last night we enjoyed every morsel. Wow 4 - the loaf of freshly baked bread each morning. Wow 5 - breakfast - home made muesli, the "Full Michael" and a selection of interesting preserves. What can we say that hasn't already been said? - you can get a mobile phone signal! We had only just arrived when our Vodaphone started ringing. We have passed Michael House a number of times over the years when going to Tintagel so we thought we would book a short break for ourselves and dogs to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We must echo the experiences of other reviewers. We received a warm welcome from Vanessa and Simon. Our room was very spacious with a massive bathroom. We were offered dog towels if we needed them - luckily we didn't. Vanessa's cooking is fantastic, we would recommend anyone staying B & B to try an evening meal. She is so passionate about her cooking and readily shared recipes. We stocked up with lemon and ginger marmalade, from the local farm shop, on our way home. There is one thing that is average about Michael House - the cost. This makes it excellent value for money, Vanessa and Simon - thank you for making our anniversary so memorable.
Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 at the front have the fabulous views out to sea.
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!
