We have just spent a lovely 6 days at Penkerris and Dorothy and her family and staff are lovely, the house is like a little time capsule and is very interesting and quirky! (the pictures in the dining room follow you with their eyes! especially the guy in the red jumper) We had a great, uninterrupted week, and it was... More

We had a terrible journey so arrived quite late at Penkerris we were welcomed into the house with our dogs. The downstairs of the house is brilliant I really did feel like o was just staying at great aunts or something and it was nice to see different people from all walks of life sitting in the lounge / breakfast...

Just come home after spending a long weekend at penkerris. I have stayed in St agnes this same weekend for 10 years plus. This was my 1st time here and I must say I wish I'd tried it before when I saw it in the past I thought it would be an expensive place to stay. As others have said... More

We booked Penkerris for a one night stay as we were looking for somewhere which could accommodate us and our dogs as we were walking a section of the South West Coast Path. We had a great stay. Yes, it's a dated, but that's the charm of the place. It's a bit like going back in time. The rooms are... More

This is not a guest house visit,rather an experience ! First impressions are that one has entered a time warp but in others very modern including free wi fi and Sky Sports on a large screen. The owner, Dorothy, is a wonderful character who is ultra considerate for her guests' welfare; just do not ask her about the revival of... More

Superb value for money. You certainly get more than you pay for. Warm rooms, decent breakfast and a marvellous hostess. Reminds me of a BBC series from the 70's. The beach is walkable, if you like walking.

Nothing particular to say: the Penkerris cannot be defined as a pearl neither a bad place... you can find there an average experience: the room was clean, comfortable for two and with a washbasin near the bed (unless ensuite). The building is old, but Dorothy and the staff are nice and helpful... just a little difficult to understand how to... More

This place ticks all the boxes: - Convenient location between Newquay and St. Ives. Lots of lovely walks and beaches in very short driving distance. - Very friendly, welcoming and accommodating staff. As pointed out by other reviewers, the owner Dorothy is a fantastic host. - The rooms are clean and at least in the room we stayed in (room... More

Its a victorian'style old house. Sleeping here its an experience to live but its right knowing that everything is old (beds, matterress, blanckets, toilets etc.) And its a bit dusty. Free wi-fi And a nice garden.

Dorothy, You are an English rose, A true lady, Nothing, Bar nothing is too much trouble for this lady and her staff. Ok, your not going to find contemporary , modern sleepover type accomodation, but if you want good old English charm at fantastic prices then go stay with Dorothy.
