The welcome and experience were first class - as was the breakfast which was prepared fresh and cooked precisely in line with our wishes.
Colin was such a gracious and friendly host.
Top notch B&B

It was necessary for my friend and I to stay close to Starcross for very sad family reasons. How lucky we were to stay at The Croft with Colin and Ken for 6 days. We had a lovely twin room on the ground floor which was very clean and serviced everyday. Breakfast was fantastic and set us up for the day ahead. I could go on listing each and everything but suffice to say if you want a friendly well run guest house you can't go wrong with The Croft. Colin and Ken are great hosts and everyday started with a laugh!

Room Tip: Loved our ground floor twin as we are not getting any younger

When you stay at The Croft, you arrive as strangers and leave feeling as friends.
We were able to check in earlier than the usual time, which we were really pleased about as we had arrived early. Had a lovely room with great views over the harbour.
Colin and Ken were very welcoming and great hosts - a credit to the industry. Colin even offered us snacks for our journey home as the snow was likely to cause long traffic delays.
We had a lovely breakfast that offered a vegetarian option.
We took advantage of The Crofts offer of 10% discount off meals at local pubs in cockwood.
Would definitely recommend this guest house and we will be booking ourselves again very soon.

Colin and Ken provide an excellent welcoming service in a house with a lot of historical interest and near to the Powderham estate. Breakfast is just what you need, accompanied by the hosts' entertainment. Beds are comfortable and rooms more than adequate. The gardens are worth exploring. My only other observation is that the hedges shown in the picture in front of the house do not actually allow a view of the harbour or lovely bridge opposite. And that bridge to Cockwood is scheduled for closure to traffic for some weeks from January 2018, so check out (we are told easy) alternative route.

Room Tip: Ring Colin and ask! He is very helpful on the phone.

Many thanks for your kind review much appreciated.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and equally nice to have friendly guests.
We dont have the hedge bushes lower as they have always looked better, and help give safe nesting areas for our regular bird visitors In the Spring & Summer these are very popular with our birders.
For complete views over the harbourside we advise our upstairs rooms these do have commanding views over the harbour.
The Cockwood Road Bridge closure will not affect the road here or the route to the pubs we attended the meeting at the Anchor pub and this was made clear so no worries for future visitors.
Thanks for your very comprehensive review and look forward to seeing you again should you be visiting the area.

The Croft is a wonderful place to stay; immaculate and full of character and it's location across the road from the fabulous Anchor Inn and The Ship couldn't be better, for excellent food & drink!
Host Colin is charming and conscientious; his guests' wellbeing is his utmost concern - he brought us homemade cake and fresh fruit when we didn't make breakfast!
Thoroughly recommended.
