Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our Cornwall and Scilly Islesplaces to stay highlight the best of the owner-managedbed-and-breakfasts, guesthouses, inns and small hotels in this populartourist county of South-West England.

Coastal Cornwall is consistently spectacular, with its towering cliffs and Atlantic rollers.The Abbey hotel looks right out over Penzance, Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount, and is one of our long-established favourites. Sister hotels The Gurnard's Head and The Old Coastguard are worth visiting for their relaxed atmosphere and stunning sea views. We would also like to draw your attention to Summer House, another one of our old favourites.

On the Scilly Isles we recommend the charming and unusual Star Castle. Inland Cornwall offers a retreat from the busier coastal location, especially during peak season, and while the landscape is at times a little bleak for some visitors, the granite tors of Bodmin Moor and pretty lakes can be a welcome change of scenery. Nanscawen Manor,a typical country guesthouse, has extensive, pretty gardens. Our Cornwall selection sums up the best smaller places to stay in the county.
