There used to be something distinctly Britain circa 1960s about B&B. Youd be in someone elses home, eating a lard-happy Full English before most normal people had crawled from under their duvets, paying for the privilege of sharing a bathroom and making polite conversation with a grumpy owner...
Thankfully, B&Bs have seen dramatic transformations over the past decade and there are some real gems in South East Cornwall where youll always feel a part of the family. Millys B&B in Polperro gets top reviews, Trehaven Manor in Looe is consistently brilliant & The Sportsmans in Menheniot go out of their way to help.
