Welcome to


Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to our home

Yonder Cottage nestles in a peaceful village amidst Cornwall's beautiful lush green countryside. Our cottage was built by the Duchy of Cornwall in the early 1800's and renovated by us two centuries later. We have added all the character of a quaint old Cornish cottage with the enhancements of today's luxuries to ensure your stay is really comfortable. The underfloor heating keeps our home toasty warm on cold days, in summer or really hot days the cottage is light and airy. Our home is smoke, child and pet free!! Come and relax in the peaceful countryside and enjoy our home and hospitality?

We have been offering Bed and Breakfast in Cornwall for nine years and we really enjoy being your hosts.

Caroline and Peter Hammond



As guests at Yonder Cottage you can enjoy relaxing in our cottage garden or explore the surrounding area. As seasoned travellers ourselves, we hope we have learned what is important whilst travelling away from home. We have designed our cottage to ensure your stay is a happy and memorable one whether you are on vacation or on business.

Our breakfast menu is imaginative, with recipes we have
collected and developed from our own travels.
We do offer a traditional Cornish breakfast too!
Start your day with either our
traditional breakfast, something healthy or

simply something indulgent.
Remember you are in Cornwall...enjoy!

  Lots of our guests find they plan to stay just a few nights
and end up staying a week.
"We came for the accommodation
and stayed for the breakfasts".

"We have to return so that we can try some more of
those delicious breakfast".
"Thank you for the comfiest beds, fluffiest pancakes,
and the warmest welcome we have enjoyed for
a long time. Wonderful"

"We could not have wished for a better holiday.
Thank you so much for making it possible."

"This does not feel like a B&B, you have made me feel
so welcome that I don't want to leave.
The food is great as well!! Thanks for making me feel so welcome.
See you again."
