About Us

Charlie and Nige are the proud owners of Harmony Homestay and are your hosts for your stay. We are both very people-oriented and take a pride in looking after our guests to the best of our abilities.Charlie and Nige

Harmony Homestay has been a dream come true for us after many years of seeking the perfect location to start our business. In 2007/2008 we realised we were living in it. Our friends had been telling us so for years! The bungalow has such a fantastic aura, it’s just very calm and relaxing. So with the help of a fantastic team of builders and a great structural engineer we transformed Harmony into the perfect home for entertaining family and friends. No more queuing for the loo and no more shower shocks when someone flushes whilst another is showering.

It then became a natural progression to share our home as a homestay and utilise our home and our skills to provide a friendly bed and breakfast facility. We aim to provide a high quality experience at a price that we could afford throughout our life together. We have high expectations ourselves and have been disappointed many times, but now we hope we can perhaps show you the quality we expect when we go away by offering that standard to you. We are very very pleased with Harmony Homestay and we hope that you will be too!

We both enjoy different hobbies in our down time like gardening, curio and antique hunting, Charlie sings with St Mewan Community Choir and Note-ability a mixed close harmonies choir and Nige enjoys Scottish country dancing and Barn Dancing, plus more importantly being a Health walk leader as this benefits in so many ways for example, helping our guests to find new and exciting parts of Cornwall to explore and enjoy, which aren’t necessarily on the known tourist trail. He also has an increasing local knowledge with some interesting stories and historical facts which might add to your holiday experience. Just ask and he might even lead a walk for you.

Charlie and Nige have  individual personalities and skills which when combined make an entertaining and effective team.
