Staying in Pennan is like leaving the world as you know it for a while. Time stands still, and the only sound you hear comes from the sea and the seagulls. A wonderful place to relax. We stayed at the self-catering apartment, which was incredibly cosy and Sue is a wonderful host. Try the Garden Arms Hotel for dinner in... More

Wonderful place to getaway and enjoy the amazing Scottish coast. Double check the local pub is open before booking, not that many restaurant options in the area. Sue is extremely helpful and looks after guests very well. A real pleasure.

I have wanted to visit pretty Pennan Village since I first watched the beautifully whimsical cult film; 'Local Hero.' After almost 30years of antipodean anticipation I was not disappointed. Pennan Village is picture perfect, and 'Driftwood Cottage' is the loveliest imaginable place to stay. Driftwood Cottage comprises the bottom half of a pretty oceanfront stone cottage. There is a narrow... More

We stayed at the B&B. Very scenic and romantic little village in the tiny strip of land between rocks and sea. Bedroom and breakfast room (the owner's drawing room) with beautiful views on the sea and just the sounds of sea waves and gulls. Tastefully furnished, comfortable, with a very nice owner and two little dogs, very clean, very good... More

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely B&B and wish we could have stayed longer. Sue, the owner could not have been more welcoming; the room was immaculate, breakfast delicious and nothing was too much trouble. The village of Pennan was so peaceful and everyone we met very friendly, it really was a get away from it all destination. We... More

Recently stayed at Driftwood in the B & B owned by Sue as well as the holiday cottage. Our room was perfect with four poster bed, jacuzzi bath and perfect views of the sea literally on your doorstep. Had a lovely breakfast in the upstairs lounge which also has spectacular views. Driftwood is one of those rare finds, beautifully designed... More

Beautiful, immaculately clean cottage in a beautiful, peaceful place. Friendly welcome from Sue the owner, delicious dinner in the local Pennan Inn..what a great short break! I only wish we could have stayed longer. It's my idea of heaven to lie in bed at night and be lulled to sea by the sound of waves breaking and the shingle whooshing... More
