Our few days sight seeing Cornwall were made all the better by our stay in the South Penarth B&b. Turning in the large gates of St Clements hill we were met by the loveliest person at the large door of her loveliest B&B. Judy went out of her way to make every moment of our first visit an unforgettable experience.... More

Top Tip: This B&B is no longer on mainstream booking sites so if you don't want to miss out on this jewel of a B&B, take the time to search for it - it will be worth it. This is such a charming B&B and we had an amazing welcome. The house was beautiful - and the weather wasn't too... More

My husband & I recently stayed 4 nights at South Penarth while visiting friends in Truro and celebrating a birthday. Judy's customer service from the 1st email months earlier until the end of our 4 day stay was outstanding! From the moment we arrived the welcome was fabulous, the room comfortable and welcoming, down to the homemade banana loaf, and... More

Always a pleasure to stay here - very comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast is great with plenty of choice and well presented food. Highly recommended if wanting a relaxing time with easy access to the centre of Truro and surrounding attractions.

Set in rambling grounds a short distance out of Truro, the imposing facade of this Grade 2 listed house hints at what may be within. The warm greeting from Judy makes you feel quickly at home. Our room was huge with two sets of windows overlooking the gardens, the bed large and comfortable. The bathroom was splendid with a magnificent... More

The house has an out door pool with a spacious terrace and a huge well maintained garden with a large garden area, trampoline, zip wire (thye kids loved this!) and a tree house - the kids were in heaven! Inside there are two large sitting areas and one... More

We stayed at South Penarth for just 1 night, but wish we could have stayed longer! It is perfectly located within 5 minutes of Truro town centre, but secluded away from the main roads. The room was amazing, Judy and Chris were fantastic hosts and all the little details which make a stay extra special were included. Homemade biscuits in... More
