With a green light from the Government, we can now confirm that our bedrooms will open from 21 July.  Please email us directly here if you would like to enquire about room availability in Summer or in Autumn.

We will announce around 6 July an opening date for the garden and for the dining rooms.  We'd expect it to fall just a few days before we re-open the rooms. 

As we emerge from lockdown, we will keep all Friends of EDS updated with any news.  Subscribe to Become a Friend here.  

When we do re-open, it will be in a way that is safe for both our guests and our teams but which is designed to retain everything that is special about The Old Coastguard.

We'll also be mindful of our local community who support us right through the year.  We know though that many of them cannot wait for us to open our doors again.


Gift Vouchers

Ever popular resolutions to difficult present problems, our vouchers can be with you within a couple of days.

For any amount, or for a particular offer, they last at least 12 months and we’re happy to extend them if needed. They are usable at any of our three little Inns.

Do email us here if you think we can help. Sad as it was to leave our previous Blue Peter efforts, we now have proper voucher holders to make for a better present all round.

Looking ahead to Winter

Dinner B&B from £165 for 2 people

The Winter Escape will return when the clocks return to GMT at the end of October.  Dinner B&B with up to 3 courses at supper from anywhere on our menu, your room and breakfast.  Just email us here for more details and availability.

You can stay as many nights as you like and can choose whether to eat here with us or make your way over to our sister inn, The Gurnard's Head.  For availability and prices, please do drop an email to our Roundhouse team.



Many of you come for a bit of eat, plenty of sleep and perhaps a little drink. And you love to have the freedom to do what you want during the day. But some may wish for a little more structure.

So we introduced some new calendar of evens to bring you together with some of the very talented people who live here in Cornwall.

Have a look at our (pre-Covid) Calendar click here.  It includes not only the events that we put on ourselves, but the many festivals in the area around us.


We're not currently confirming any bookings for stays before 1 October.  We do expect that date to be brought forward but will wait until we have further guidance from the Government.

We do expect to be open in one way or another over the summer or in September, whether that is in our gardens, in the restaurant or in the rooms.  For the moment, though, we are not working to any particular timetable.

When we do re-open, it will be in a shiny new building that has not yet seen a guest.  If we can open in September, it will be with our September Sleepover and a team who will be longing to see their guests again.


Our first offer back in 2003 at The Griffin, and still properly popular. Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon on the terrace.

Then supper, a good night's sleep and breakfast on Monday morning.  From £240 per couple or then from £200 when the Winter Escape returns (from late October).

For more details of prices and availability of any of our offers, contact us via the website or send an email here.
