About Dolvean

Dolvean House is a ten bedroom guest house owned and run by Shaun and Renate Davie. They are no strangers to Cornwall. Shaun grew up in Cornwall and made his career in the hotel trade around Falmouth with his last position being as Deputy Manager at the nearby Meudon Country House Hotel. During this time he met Renate who had travelled to Cornwall from Bonn in Germany. A former nutritionist and PR-Manager, Renate works as a tour guide showing people the best of Cornwall, including the many gardens, footpaths and coastal scenery.

Shaun and Renate acquired Dolvean House in March 2008 and are determined to maintain its reputation as an establishment providing the very best in Bed & Breakfast and hospitality. Please view our awards and read guests comments.
