We’ve just returned from a five night stay in Bedknobs and can thoroughly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting this part of Cornwall. We really don’t need to write much more as all the earlier reviews say it all, but we do confirm that it is a delightful place to stay, Gill and Kim are excellent hosts, our room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are delicious. So book now for your visit to Cornwall!

Staying at Bedknobs was such a treat. Hosts Gill and Kim pull out all the stops to look after their guests, serving delicious breakfasts, with eggs from a neighbour's hens, home made preserves and honey from their own bees! The attention to detail is awesome- carefully sourced shampoo, shower and bath products, hand and foot cream, a pile of towels in the bathroom, two sizes of bags in every room to take away on outings, a wide variety of books and dvds, wifi and surge free charging points, and much more. Gill and Kim also know everything there is to know about places to visit and eat and drink and went out of their way to give me directions, even lending me one of their Ordnance Survey maps. I was well impressed! Bedknobs is one of my best memories of my long week-end break in Bodmin.
The hosts have furnished and decorated the house with the same care and attention to detail as they give their guests, making it a real home from home.
I'll definitely be back- would have given six stars if these had been available!

Room Tip: The Honeypot flat is self-catering and has everything one could wish for.

This is almost a destination rather than a stopover. It is probably more of a tiny boutique hotel rather than a B&B. The attention to detail is astonishing; two glass tumblers in the bathroom plus an extra one for your toothbrushes; two more tumblers in the bedroom and two wineglasses plus a little fridge.stocked with soft drinks and mineral water.
The bathroom itself had both a heated towel rail and a tall efficient radiator - very welcome but so far unknown to us outside our own home. We had just spent two nights in a Premier Inn (comfortable bed, good bedroom, helpful staff) with neither a heated towel rail nor a heater in the bathroom. Quelle horreur!
The bedroom and public rooms were beautifully decorated - why didn't we think of that paint and wallpaper combination? - and furnished. The bed more comfortable than ours at home. Throw in caring hosts in Gill and Kim, excellent breakfasts, within easy walking distance of the centre of town and you have an an excellent mini-break destination.

This is Bedknobs B & B - I'm not sure what the B & B stands for - it may be Blissful & Brilliant or Beautiful & Beyond or simply Book & Book again! This was our second visit - it certainly will not be the last, usually you can find something to criticize but not here! A wonderful establishment run by welcoming and charming hosts! Look no further.

Bedknobs B&B is a wonderful place to stay and I recommend it highly to anyone traveling to this part of Cornwall. Our room, Beech, was beyond comfortable: spacious and spotlessly clean, with views of the garden, a spa-like bathroom with "airbath" tub, lovely comfy big bed, a well-stocked hospitality tray and fridge, and on and on. Gill and Kim are extremely welcoming and will take care of you very well, including offering you delicious breakfast options from the basics of porridge or cereal through local smoked kippers or salmon to a full Cornish breakfast with the works: eggs, sausage, bacon, and more. I can also recommend the sandwich platter if you don't feel like going out to eat - it will set you up for the night. There's plenty to explore, and Kim will give you the local weather report at breakfast and help you plan your day, with suggestions of places to go in the area (and, in our case, since we didn't rent a car, help with sorting out the bus and train schedules). Ask him about his tour of Bodmin Moor - for a very reasonable fee, we had an excellent day-long tour that covered everything I could have wanted as an introduction to that wild and storied landscape: the stones, the mines, the open windswept pastures, Golitha Falls, and more.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have nice views of the garden.

Thanks Guys - we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Bedknobs - for us, that is the icing on the cake. Dare'st we ask "How is the book going?" And of course, we'd love to welcome you back for a future visit - with another 'tour' should you wish. Indeed, Kim is more than hapy to offer tours to any of our longer stay guests that will take you around Bodmin Moor and its surrounding area that is just steeped in history, indeed as is most of Cornwall! Again, thank you so much and woould love to welcome you both back to Bedknobs.
Gill and Kim
