10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
What a lovely place to stay!
"Just had a fantastic break in beautiful surroundings. The hotel is beautifully appointed and even though there were a number of young children staying, it was all very quiet and peaceful. The drawing rooms were comfortable and the log fires, homely and welcoming. Our hosts, Geoff and Jessica, were very accommodating. We will certainly return!"

A Haven of Tranquility with Fantastic Breakfasts
"Our stay was an exceptionally enjoyable one.
As experienced world travelers, Molesworth provided us with a peaceful and relaxing break.
Geoff and Jess, our hosts made us most welcome.
The bedroom was spotless with every care for detail possible, and we particularly enjoyed relaxing in the exquisite drawing room with its wide range of local information.
We feel special attention must be given to the superb breakfasts. Without doubt, they are the very best we have had on our travels and are a reason to return to this most delightful place!
We would highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay with Geoff and Jess."

"We stayed there earlier this summer and had a very relaxing and enjoyable time and tomorrow we are going again for three nights we liked it so much! Nice to see such ecologically minded hosts, they even provide you with a canvas shopping bag to use whilst you are there. Breakfast was fine for us, but anyone expecting a huge buffet or what people think of as a full English breakfast might be disappointed but we certainly had plenty and there was some fresh fruit which varied day to day.
Tip..if you are over 60 and have a bus pass, the bus to Padstow in one direction ( a short bus ride) and Wadebridge in the other stops a few yards from the drive. The last bus back from Padstow at 11(?)pm is on request but otherwise the last bus officially goes at 8.30pm. When you consider the parking charges in Padstow leaving the car behind is a great plus. We didnt take our car out from the moment we arrived till 4 days later when we left.. and very relaxing that was too.You can get a bus to Wadebridge (nothing much there, though the John Betjamin centre is worth a brief look if you're a fan or while you kill time waiting for the bus) to pick up the bus to Port Isaac. Otherwise you can get the ferry (Â£3.50) to Rock from Padstow and walk up the hill to pick up the bus to Port Isaac. Either way, it saves fuel and parking fees and is a pleasant experience."

"The Manor was fine , rooms and bed were fine the breakfast let it down , having been in catering myself , felt it was too rushed and had I known it was just cold ham and an egg with a tiny bit of mushroom and tomato I would have had more to start with"

"We have just retuned from a 4 day break in Little Petherick, Cornwall. We stayed at 'Molesworth Manor'. The hotel is located in beautiful settings. The hotel is of a very high standard, accomodation was excellent. The owners Geoff and Jessica were very welcoming when we arrived. We couldnt of asked for anything more!!!! I would reccommend this manor to anyone, an ideal location to explore Cornwall."

"Molesworth Manor really exceeded all our expectations.
Located near Padstow the setting is fantastic - gorgeous manor house with wonderful rooms. Our bedroom (Seigneur de la Trintie) had a lovely feel and was absolutely spotless. The bathroom was really something!.
There are a number of relaxing rooms downstairs (they can be properly called 'lounges'!) and a well-stocked honesty bar. The only TV in the building is also downstairs so there's no intrusions unless you want them.
Breakfast was wide-ranging with a different daily special offered every day - always to a very high standard. The home-baked muffins are fantastic.
The owners were welcoming, friendly, and really pleasant company. They really make the place a great place for a relaxing stay.
Outstandingly good value for money - I'll be spreading the word to friends and family (not something I normally do)."

a beautiful setting
"We arrived after a long journey around 10.00pm in the evening to a warm welcome. We were a party of 10 arriving in three separate parties and the owner, Geoff was very jovial and welcoming to us all, even though we arrived in dribs and drabs.
The accommodation was superb. Inviting, comfortable, relaxing and everthing was to the highest standard. Because we had 5 different bedrooms we were able to see a selection of the rooms - all of which would be a pleasure to stay in.
The breakfast in the morning was superb. Fresh figs from the garden and a selection of fresh fruits, a variety of cereals and a choice of cooked breakfast was on offer. One of our party has a wheat and dairy allergy and with prior warning to the owner, he had soya milk and porridge for her.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Sadly we could only stay for one of the two nights we had in Padstow and had to stay in another place the second night. That, however, is sadly a very different story!!!"

A lovely country haven near Padstow!
"We arrived at Molesworth Manor after a long drive across England, and were welcomed by the owner, Geoff, who bounded out to greet us! Geoff was incredibly helpful, recommending local restaurants, country walks, local attractions, etc. The facilities were beautiful (clean, beautiful decorations, comfortable beds, lovely large bathrooms, fantastic common areas) and I awoke in the morning to a stunning view of the countryside from my window. The breakfast was lovely -- cereals, home-baked muffins, home-made jam, good strong coffee, milk straight from the farm, and other home-made treats. The rooms were very quiet (we didn't even realize that there were so many other guests until we went down to breakfast in the morning). It was the perfect balance for a b and b -- a friendly and helpful host who obviously loved welcoming guests to the hotel, but was not overly obtrusive (we had lots of quiet time in the afternoon and evening). Molesworth Manor is a complete treat, and I would recommend it highly to any friends. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!"
