We stayed over for three nights and the hosts Kevin and Claire were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. The breakfasts were excellent and set us up nicely for the days touristing, and the room was comfortable and clean. Two pubs serving lunch and dinner are within less than a minutes walk, and the parking is free... almost unknown in Cornwall.

We stayed for 3 nights last November/December. Comfortable beds, immaculate decoration and very nice breakfasts. Kevin and Claire were wonderful fun and nothing was too much trouble,very hospitable. Great pity it is such a long drive from North Herts. Highly recommended.

The Old Temperance House stands out. We have just returned from having spent two excellent nights in this charming b & b. The accommodation is impeccable and Claire and Kevin, the owners, couldn't have been more attentive. The two breakfasts we had were perfect and we couldn't recommend it hightly enough. We will certainly return.

We stayed here for 4 nights in September whilst enjoying a week in Cornwall. This B&B is excellent, we could not have wanted any more than what the Old Temperance House provides. Room, breakfast cleanliness, comfort, hosts, parking and Rocky the dog. The village of St Keverne is right on the doorstep with local pubs, restaurant and shops, a thriving community. So thankj you Claire and Kevin. The area round the Lizard is great for coastal walking

We spent a week in this charming 2 bedroom cottage attached to Old Temperance House B & B. Claire and Kevin are wonderful hosts - on hand if needed but completely unobtrusive. It was everything I had hoped it would be and nothing disappointed. Sitting outside in the morning sun was a delight and catching the afternoon/evening sun in the front of the B & B with a G & T in hand and a good book to read was sublime. Thank you so much. I can't stop telling people about our fabulous time there.
