"Had a wonderful, creative break, inspiration everywhere. The robin joined us for dinner one night! A truly idyllic setting, we didn't want to leave. Laura Nuttall, London.

St. Raphael lies at the end of a quiet lane used only by the occasional walker or cyclist. We invite guests to really make the most of the home grown vegetables and soft fruit that flourish in the south facing, walled garden throughout the year. Depending on the season, our own freshly picked rhubarb, new potatoes, lettuce, leeks, carrots, courgettes, parsnips, apples and beetroot all abound.

Artists and photographers may feel inspired to take out easel or camera to capture the many surprising and interesting features and plants. As you explore the furthest boundary of the garden, an unusual feature waiting to catch your eye is the vintage cider press. Now fully operational after restoration by the Woodhouse family this working antique sits so well in this unique setting. Adjacent to the cider press is an ancient Ingot casting stone (now listed); a small but fascinating relic of a vast and unrivalled local history of tin mining in the now beautiful valley.
