"Thanks to you all for a fabulous stay at The Residence. I have never met such a welcoming team. We really enjoyed our brief stay and the food was amazing."



In a quiet corner of the hotel in an enclosed garden space is our Dragonfly suite. The largest of our rooms, Dragonfly has a signature luxury super-king bed (which may be divided into twin singles on request) and still enjoys sufficient floorspace to have additional beds for children; making the room suitable as a family suite (additional bed charges may apply) when our larger family accommodation is fully booked.

Your Own Outside Space & Indulgent Bathroom

The crisp white linen and soft fluffy duvets and pillows make climbing out a bed hard but the calming greens and mauves of the room make this room one of guest favourites for romantic weekends away. The light and airy ensuite has a modern corner bath with sunflower overhead shower large for an indulgent soak for two before wrapping up in soft fluffy towels.

Your own French windows open onto the coastal style private outdoor area that in turn leads to the Hidden Garden where you can have your breakfast served as an alternative to eating in the restaurant or meadow garden. Your room is equipped with a flatscreen TV, unlimited perfect WiFi, a fridge (with fresh milk of your choice daily), kettle, Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother as well as a drawer full of organic teas, coffee pods, hot chocolates and goodies.

Your Facilities

Your fridge can be stocked in advance and kept topped up with your favourite drinks and snacks on request.

Looking for a self catering instead?

Although Dragonfly has plenty of space, families may prefer our self catering options.


last call for poldark tours

After eight years sitting at the zenith of Poldark related tourism, we have decided 2023 will be Karen’s final year of touring guests around Cornwall’s outstanding landscapes, tourist attractions and show stopping filming locations.

This also means that any and all visits to Nampara (pictured) will cease after 2023, as it is a location Karen has exclusive access to. So if seeing Nampara and experiencing Karen’s expertise and charm first hand is on your Poldark bucket list, this will likely be the final opportunity to do so.

Places are limited for next year, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, it would b wonderful to see you all –
