Our four night stay at the Ancient Shipbrokers was part of our Golden Wedding celebrations, the cost of which was a gift from our daughters and their families. Directions supplied were very accurate and we were met on arrival with a warm welcome from Mel who helped us with our luggage up to our room. We stayed in the Cream... More

When we arrived we received the most warming welcome from Melvyn and Wendy and the warm welcome remained for the 6 days we stayed there. We had great views from our room and delicious cooked breakfast every morning and what ever you wanted our hosts bent over backwards to please. I would like to say if i ever return to... More

No problem finding it, but beware Higher End is exactlyt that. The road is practically vertical and you go round a left hand corner and it flattens at the top where there is parking. Our car is set quite low so we just managed ti, but if we still had low profiles on it would have been a struggle. We... More

Stayed at the Ancient Shipbrokers for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The hosts Wendy and Mel are very friendly and more than helpful to us during our stay. We stayed in the Cream room which looks out over to the seafront. The breakfasts are wonderful and tasty. A very peaceful unhurried and relaxing break.

There is nothing like having a lovely quiet room where you can look out over an old harbour, the sea, and a Cornish village in a Cornish valley - and then to have the warmest of welcomes and great breakfasts! If you add to that one of - if not the cheapest - petrol stations in Cornwall at the top... More

went there for a week 3 years ago, Wendy, Mel and Georgina are charming persons. We enjoyed our stay with all the comfort advertised. We enjoyed the gala too in Pentewan. The access to the train station is very practical and we really felt at home. Greetings from France xxx

Ancient Shipbrokers in the former Harbour Masters house at Pentewan is quite simply the most delightful B&B I've ever had the good fortune to stumble across! Lovely house with superb friendly hospitality set in an elevated position above the village with harbour, sea and cliff views. Magnificent! Great gardens, verandah, bike storage. Met other similarly satisfied customers so even travelling... More
