My wife stayed here in June whilst visiting friends and loved it so much we had to go back. She was proved right again. It's a fantastic guest house, everything's impeccably presented & available. Anything else you need & then Claire & Kevin will go out of their way for you. There is so much to do around here and loads of variety. Walks, beaches, those hard to find coves, dining out, places to browse and many many more. When you get back at the end of the day there are 2 pubs in the small square to chillax / eat and a local Londis if you just need that evening top up in your room. Fantastic

This was just a short weekend break to perhaps one of the best B&Bs I have ever had the opportunity to visit (very clean and well-presented). Great location (smack bang in the Village Square) with amenities all round (2 pubs, both serving good food, convenience store, post office, butchers and bakers). Easy access to inspiring country walks and a relatively short distance to the nearest beach. Plus, and this is what makes it special, the owners, Kevin and Claire are wonderful hosts (attentive and cheerful). You have to try Kevin's full English breakfast which includes the locally sourced Hog's Pudding! Highly recommended.

An excellent little B&B right in the square in St Keverne. Rooms are beautifully decorated with really comfy beds. Large bathroom with lovely hair, bath and shower products provided. Breakfast was really nice, with all locally produced ingredients. Hosts were really lovely, we felt at home immediately. I can't recommend Old Temperance House highly enough

Great location right on the square in st keverne, very elegant property fittingly decorated throughout, the room was well equipped and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was very tasty. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Room and en suite -the pimms room - was slightly small - there was nowhere for suitcase and think I would have felt slightly claustrophobic if I had been staying more than one night. Despite this would definitely recommend this B&B.
