Kevin and Claire are delightful proprietors. The house is spotlessly clean and perfectly decorated. Breakfast choices mean everyone can eat exactly what they want and rooms are well priced. Well done!

We had the pleasure of staying at Old Temperance house in their beautiful cottage which is situated at the rear of property in a lovely small 'sun trap' court yard. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The attention to detail and added extras such as DVDs and books make the cottage even more welcoming. The owners Claire and Kevin cannot do enough for you and are very knowledgeable about the local area. St Keverne is a great base for exploring southern Cornwall with Falmouth, St Ives, the Lizard and Lands End all within an hours drive. I would not hesitate to reccomend Old Temperance House as premium accommodation in this area. Thank you for an amazing week.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it couldn't be better. The bed was so comfortable we wanted to take it home with us and Kevin and Claire were perfect hosts. St Keverne itself is good too with shops covering most needs and easy access to the surroundings countryside.
