The place is lovely and so is the village. Only bus rides away from The Losr Gardens of Helligan and The Eden Project. The buses are regular so it’s easy to get to surrounding towns.

None
Response from Ancient Shipbrokers:
There are rewards to running a happy Guest House. We look forward to welcoming loyal Guests year after year and enjoy their company. It's what keeps us going through the long windy Winters when the sea is crashing onto the beach.( and we are locked indoors with paintbrushes!) See you again in 2019

"Excellent place for tired SW coast path walkers."
We stayed for one night, on our last walking day. Very friendly welcome and a nice comfy room. Lovely sea view from our window and a great place to watch birds. Breakfast was just magic, I asked for a bacon and mushroom sandwich and it came with no bother. We liked the really easy going atmosphere and would not hesitate to recommend. Read less
Likes:
Easy to find, not always the case in small villages. Just up from the pub but very quiet.
Dislikes:
Would have liked to stay longer but we can always come back again, many thanks.

"Peaceful Easter weekend getaway with a view of the sea"
We had a wonderful stay at the Shipbrookers! We had a room with a view of the sea, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and a hot breakfast every morning. The perfect place to come back to after a long day outside. Mel (owner) was very accommodating to our breakfast requests as well. Always plenty of parking (we parked in the lot at the entrance of the village - 2 minutes from the BnB) and just a five minute walk to the beach/access points to the South West Coast Path. Read less

Response from Ancient Shipbrokers:
