Comfortable double room in quiet cul-de-sac opposite woods and creek but only 5 mins walk from train to Plymouth (main Penzance to Paddington line) or 10 mins to Fore St, shops, takeaways and an often recommended Indian restaurant. Pub with good live music by river. Guests are welcome to sit outside in either the front or back garden and enjoy the sunshine.


Ideal for someone who needs to be in Plymouth but would rather stay somewhere more peaceful. Many excellent scenic walks close by along rivers Tamar and Lynher. On edge of Tamar Valley an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Good beaches 20 mins away


I provide a couple of different cereals and bread for toast as a light breakfast. Tea and coffee are available in the bedroom. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare food. I usually cook between 6 and 7 pm so space may be limited then! I have a dishwasher and prefer guests to leave plates and cutlery on the side to be loaded into it by me (only one person in any house can load a dishwasher!) I hate people who rinse their dishes under the tap and pretend they're clean - fine in your own house but not when sharing!


I'm happy to advise on the local area and there are timetables, an ordnance survey map and tourist information in the bedroom. I'm around a fair bit but respect guests' privacy and possible desire for peace and quiet!

I feel I have to right an honest review. This was my first time of using Airbnb and was very disappointed. After reading the reviews I decided to stay here as it was closer to where I needed to be, I wish I had travelled the extra 15mins and paid an extra £5 to stay at the other place. Elaine is a lovely friendly helpful person, who offered my a hot drink when I arrived which she didn't need to do. The bed is comfortable. Unfortunately, the house was not up to standard smelt of dog and the dog was barking at 4am and other early time in the morning. So I had two days of not a lot of sleep and chose not to stay on the third night. I would not use the kitchen due to it being unhygienic. Extra money is charged for cleaning so this room should be spotless. Unfortunately, I can not upload pictures. I would not stay here again. I am not a clean freak but when you are offering something to the public there is a standard required!!!
I am sorry that Bernadette found her experience of staying with me disappointing. I am currently looking after two collies as well as my Jack Russell who normally live with my daughter, they do bark occasionally but certainly not for an extended period. Due to the constant rain the house probably does smell of damp dogs and damp humans for that matter and I do always advise potential guests not to book if they are not animal lovers. I suppose the difference is that they may love animals but are not used to living in the same premises and all it entails! I do not charge a cleaning fee. The fee that comes up on the listing is the Airbnb booking fee. Saying that, I do clean the house every day, including the kitchen, It may be small and a trifle cluttered but it is very well used and enjoyed unlike many British kitchens which are mere show pieces! Funnily enough an environmental health inspector stayed with me for a working week and prepared food in my kitchen every evening without comment or criticism! I also had a locum dentist who stayed happily on week days for 4 months and two pharmacists who have returned to stay on a number of occasions and I don't think they would if it were as bad as Bernadette infers. She has very kindly invited me to her home should I ever be in Cardiff, I think I would probably feel rather scruffy and uncomfortable, but thank you anyway!

Lovely and quiet and easy to find. Elaine was a wonderful host, very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend

Lovely welcome, nice cul de sac, quiet area and ideal for Plymouth Etc

Elaine was a great host, down to earth, helpful, respectful. I loved that having my room in her house was like being home, I was welcome to move about, use the facilities, including the garden, and interact as I wished, and if I didn't my room was quite separate and I had complete Privacy. The house is in a beautiful leafy valley, a 7 minute walk from town. Great to come back to after a hard day out! Thank you Elaine, thank you Tom, staying with you a highlight for me xx

The welcome was most efficient, Elaine was slouching through a bottle of red in the front garden and suggested I share it. Rude to have declined. House is small, room comfortable, in-room coffee making good. Easy walk from the lower town, bus stops and railway station (unstaffed and no ticket machine), but a bit steep in places on the way back. You can walk along the fore-shore at low tide (with care) to the adjacent Just Be restaurant and Union Inn (both recommended), but I wouldn't recommend this route after dark, and the road alternative is steep. Handy for me for a three-night stay using the ridiculously cheap 'Ride Cornwall' train and bus ticket @ £10 per day' . Note that the bridge in the picture is a bridge over an inlet near Elaine's house, not the Tamar Bridge--I couldn't work this out until I saw it for real.
Ha ha, would just like to add that I was drinking wine with my next door neighbour and we invited Aitch to join us so not quite as bad as this man with a wicked sense of humour makes it sound!

As I was getting a lift from Bromley all the way to Saltash, I really didn't have an idea when I would get there. Fortunately keeping in touch with Elaine by text ensured that I could keep her updated as to my ETA. Upon my arrival, Elaine made me most welcome - I was offered a cup of tea which I gratefully accepted! The room and facilities were great. Also very much appreciated was the tea & coffee making facilities in the room, and the flask of fresh milk left outside the door every morning. A very peaceful location, with no through traffic. You will get a good workout walking the 5 minute or so walk uphill to the town centre, but you will feel better for it! Elaine's a very friendly hostess, and I was always made to feel very welcome. Georgie, the Jack Russell is very friendly too! Thanks Elaine.

Elaine made us feel welcome and answered our questions. The room was lovely and very clean. I should have expected it to be at the bottom of a steep hill with it being Cornwall!
Hello Jill, thanks for the kind review, Regarding your private feedback about more choice for breakfast would be nice, I agree in theory! I used to make sure I had white and brown bread and a selection of cereals but found that only around 50% of guests bother with breakfast at all and I was throwing out most of the cereal as it went out of date, likewise with the white bread. I just haven't got the cupboard space either. If guests are staying for a few days I now ask them if there would be anything in particular they would like me to get in for them. Otherwise guests have to share my granary bread and muesli, but at least there's no waste. This was useful feedback as future guests can read it and know what to expect!

I love travelling but I'm not keen on impersonal hotels, I would much rather stay in a "real" home and learn from the people there about the area. I also prefer to spend my money on great food and wine, two of my favourite things in life! I love cooking and teach bread making.

For almost two years I have thoroughly enjoyed hosting guests from all over the world, particularly young people who appreciate a nice room in a family home as an alternative to a hostel or campsite. I also like to make solo travellers feel particularly welcome as it can be nice to share conversation at the end of the day if you are travelling alone as I do myself.

I try to provide everything I feel is important - the wifi code is on the wall and works well! There is tea and coffee in the room and fresh milk in a flask daily The bed is good quality and extremely comfortable so I'm told..I am more than happy to advise on local knowledge and there are many maps and books in the bedroom to help guests make the most of their stay.

A good number of working people have also appreciated a bargain priced home from home, some staying for several weeks!

What my house isn't however is a business and I really think some users of Airbnb don't get this. (This isn't helped by the fact that there are a lot of B&Bs and hotels using Airbnb) I don't spend my day making the house look immaculate for visitors, I go out to work. Sometimes it's very tidy, other times less so because I've been busy! I charge less than half what you would pay to stay in a local B&B and some people, in particular couples around my own age have been critical and would be better off in the local Travelodge. They won't get use of a kitchen or be welcome in a friendly living room but it will have been professionally cleaned and there won't be any personal possessions lying around! So, do think what you are looking for when you book accommodation and whether it is right for your particular needs.
