Your hosts Elizabeth and Nigel Wagstaff will be happy to help you plan your visit to this wonderful part of South East Cornwall and will do everything they can to make your stay in their historic home memorable.
Their aim is to make your stay as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. Depending on your time of arrival, you will be greeted with tea and home made biscuits and breakfast (using quality and where possible local ingredients) is at a prearranged time entirely to suit you in the orangery, on the balconies or in the dining room.
Bishop’s House garden overlooks the estuary at sea level and guests are welcome to enjoy this area at any time. A small salinated pool will be installed next year which will also have spectacular views and sunbathing opportunities.
There is a well stocked library and a small selection of DVDs which guests are welcome to borrow.
But above all there is one of the most magnificent views in Cornwall and you can just sit in the most elegant surrounds and soak it in.
