Our classic bedrooms are more spacious, located in the old and new parts of the house. Some have rolling countryside views, some have newly renovated bathrooms, all with a touch more luxury than our budget option.


Our gorgeous superior rooms have been renovated to the highest standards allowing you to relax in true luxury. We’re certain you’ll enjoy the Egyptian cotton sheets and large screen televisions during your stay. We regret that pets are not permitted in our superior bedrooms.


Our restaurant is in Launceston, Cornwall, and is owned by local farmers. This means that the finest local and seasonal produce is at the heart of our menus. We celebrate good food and showcase what Cornwall has to offer in every dish we produce.

We offer a special dining experience with views across the rolling countryside of Cornwall. The menu is seasonal and changes daily. You can expect fresh fish, slow cooked and roasted local meats and the freshest of seasonal vegetables. 


Afternoon tea is a time to indulge and take time to savour a variety of flavours. Sip your tea and tuck into your scones whilst enjoying the spectacular view from either the Moat Restaurant or terrace if the sun is shining.

Please inform us of any dietary requirements giving plenty of notice and every effort will be made to ensure you have an equally delicious meal!

If it’s just a tipple you’re after then we have everything from traditional drinks to our own twist on classics; there’s something to tingle all taste buds.  We offer a wide variety of gin (including our very own!) and a cocktail menu with a drink for every occasion.  Join our resident science teacher and gin fanatic for an evening gathered around our beautiful copper still, ‘Dulcie’. You’ll be taken on a sensory journey around the world with the most exciting and flavourful botanicals. Try a selection the weirdest and most wonderful gins and learn a little about the history and future of this enigmatic spirit.  Gin tasting sessions last approximately 90 minutes, and are charged at £25 per person, based on a minimum group size of four.
