Your Hosts

Dave & Val Jeffery

David and Val Jeffery took charge of The Strathallan Guest House Helston in September 2012, relocating from North Northumberland having spent the last 25 years there raising a family and honing their skills in the hospitality industry. 

David, a Cornish native, moved to Scotland in 1979 as a promising young chef to take up a residency position in the prestigious Peebles Hydro Hotel. Having put in serious kitchen time throughout his teenage years around the Falmouth area, his desire to progress brought him to his future wife. 

Both continuing to prosper in their respective fields, in the early 1990’s they settled in a small village near the Border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed following the birth of their first child and David’s appointment as head chef at Tillmouth Park Country Hotel.

Having spent the last 20 years in this area raising their three children, they have now made the decision to return to David’s home county, taking up their own business venture after years of contributing invaluably towards other peoples. 

A rounded knowledge of fine catering and hospitality combined with a local touch allow the couple to offer the quintessential Cornish guest house experience. 

Helston is the most southerly town in the whole of the UK, surrounded by picturesque countryside and bordered equally by a mix of isolated beaches and bustling shopping towns.  David, Val and family look forward to providing you with a worthwhile and pleasant bed and breakfast experience at The Strathallan, and hope that you will find all the information you need on this site.

“I had the most welcoming and relaxing stay at this beautiful b&b on a recent visit to Cornwall. The room was immaculate, the bed & bedding were blinding white, crisp and comfortable beyond belief. Breakfast every morning had a vide variety of choice to suit all tastes. The chef/owner was incredibly friendly, obliging & professional. My room had lots of extras I hadn’t been offered in other B&Bs.I highly recommend staying here. Friendly and professional service and staff at all times. I look forward to my return.”

“First the Location is perfect, close enough to the Center, you can go Walking and just far enough to have a relaxed day and night in the Guesthouse. Clean, beautiful, but the best is how friendly the owners are. The breakfast is great!! cooked from a professional Chef, the lovely attention from Val and David make you feel at home. There is a very nice Garden where you can meet a very educated and friendly dog, Charly. Definitely we have to come back in Summer!!!
Thanks again David and Val !!!”
