My wife and I stayed at Penvith Barns for 2 nights over the New Year's Eve period. Upon arriving we were totally taken aback by the look of the buildings and grounds, stunning! We were greeted by Jules who is the most amazing host alongside her equally amazing husband/chef, Graham. Graham by the way cooks the best cooked breakfast we... More

Stayed here in August for a short weekend over the bank holiday and we stayed in the Hay Barn. The room was beautiful with a huge bed. The bathroom was lovely and the shower was very powerful. Very clean and tidy and had extra blankets and pillows to make it cosy. Jules and Graham were brilliant hosts, very friendly and... More

Our second time at Penvith and found it just as perfect as before. Jules and Graham are great hosts. Breakfasts could not be faulted and we especially liked the alternatives offered to a 'full English'. We know the area well but Graham was still able to suggest places to visit/ eat which we had not encountered before. All in all... More

Cannot fault this B & B. Jules & Graham could not be more warm and welcoming, and very knowledgeable of the area in every way. We stayed in 2 different rooms, both with very comfortable beds, thoughtful decor and excellent en suites, there were nice touches such as fresh flowers and upmarket toiletries. Breakfasts could not have been better, varied... More

Jules and Graham were the perfect hosts with exceptional accommodation for our 7 night stay and we could not resist the perfect breakfast to start each day. Graham was very knowledgeable of the local area giving good advice on places to visit and eat. We were sad to leave but looking forward to returning next year and sampling more of... More

We had an amazing stay here, we stayed for two nights in the Hen House. We had our own front door and a little patio area outside. It was so quiet, the only thing you could hear were the birds and occasionally Bono the lamb who we loved! Views from our room were stunning. Breakfast was fantastic and the best... More

We thoroghly enjoyed the two relaxing weeks we spent there in July. Jules and graham are wonderful hosts and can offer advice on local eateries and the many places of interest in the locality.The...

Just home from an amazing stay at Penvith Barns. We stayed in the dairy which was very comfortable and homely. We had great views from our window across the rolling hills into Looe. The thing that struck me most was the peace and quiet, apart from the odd bah of a sheep and birdsong it was silent and this added... More
