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

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

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
