This is a very pleasant place to stay. Steve the owner runs cycling tour from here. He's very knowledgeable about the area. Our room no. 8 was on the ground floor next to the dining room . There was no noise to disturb whatsoever. All very welcoming and friendly.

Stayed her for one night as a couple after a long days trek from Porthcurno. Its a lovely area of the country, with plenty to do and see in Penzance itself. On arrival the lovely host Linda was very attentive. Room spacious and bed comfortable. Slept soundly and the breakfast lovely too. I can recommend the fishcakes with poached eggs!.... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Torwood House and would happily stayed longer. Lynda carried the case to our room which, although on the top floor was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated.
