“Staying at Old Temperance House is like turning off the outside world while embracing the tranquillity and charm the Lizard area of Cornwall offers you.”

“Cannot express what a joy it has been to stay here. Pure luxury and relaxation at its best. Staying here was like being home from home but obviously better ☺. Every detail has been thought out perfectly. Will certainly come here again to be spoilt rotten!!”

“We have really enjoyed our stay at the Old Temperance House for the last 5 nights. Kevin & Claire could not have been more helpful and the Cornish Cream Breakfast & Kevin’s poached eggs were to die for! This was the kind of holiday that you never want to end, great weather, great countryside and great hosts.”

"There is ample and free parking in the village square."
