Why we've chosen Pendragon Country House

[img_assist|nid=3582|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=100]Review by Jeremy Smith

"Breakfast is a cut above – the menu makes a real point of its provenance, with an informative paragraph on each of the suppliers used for everything, from eggs to smoked kippers. There's human touches too, like letting you know that it's served from “8.30 till 10am-ish”, so no more last minute panics to get down to breakfast if you've had one too many the night before. They don't serve lunch, but offer wicker picnic hampers with homemade sandwiches, crisps, a drink, and an iceblock and cooler...

Passionate about getting it right, Nigel and Sharon are consummate hosts. Their food is top notch, their location superb. If North Cornwall's your thing but you'd like to get away from the crowds in Padstow, Rock and Newquay, Pendragon's a pretty good place to base yourself for a few days. And with food this good, you may never even get out the front door."
