We arrived at 1545 hours and realised that check in is only from 1600 hours so the door was locked. Guests came in and out but we had to wait outside. They informed us that the owner was out and should be back soon. Fifteen minutes later, finally a young girl named Tula came to open the door for us... More

Big thanks to Sheila for a wonderful weekend 27-29 Sept. Looked forward to so much for my 50th birthday, my husband could not have chosen a more perfect place. Sheila's beautiful home offered comfort along with friendly, helpful service and great cat:) The food was delicious; I can't praise enough. Now just got to sort out when we can go... More

This is a perfect place to stay and great value for money. The room décor was tasteful and the view into the ocean was even better. Surprised that this B&B was dog friendly as it was so clean and tidy. The owner was very welcoming and met our every need. The breakfast was extremely filling due to so much choice,... More

We haven't even finished our two night stay at Penmenner House yet, but I really feel the need to leave a review. After a week driving around Devon and Cornwall, Penmenner House is by far the best place we've stayed at. Rooms are cosy and clean with spectacular views over Lizard Point and the sea, breakfast is absolutely brilliant and... More

I can find no fault with our stay at Penmenner house at all. We stayed in the Sunset room which was small but impeccably clean and certainly big enough for our needs (not only was it clean, it smelled amazing too). There was a great selection of drinks in the room (black tea, flavoured teas, instant coffee, fresh coffee and... More

We recently stayed at Penmenner House for 4 nights on a short break. We stayed in the Atlantic Room, from where the view out to sea was amazing. You could lay in bed and watch the moon shining on the water at night - blissful! Sheila is just lovely and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts were fantastic, especially... More

Penmenner House is a large Victorian House on the southern edge of Lizard village, with generous rooms, overlooking the lighthouse and coast a short distance, maybe 500 metres, away. Sheila is a helpful hostess, serving sumptuous breakfasts, beautifully presented, particularly delicious fruit salads and cooked breakfasts. The house has been decorated with a strong eastern theme and fragrance and has... More

If you don't care about wi-fi and debit/credit cards, then this is the place for you! The house is absolutely outstanding! It's clean and tastefully decorated. The lounge is a real gem. We spent two nights in the Atlantic Room and really, the picture on the website doesn't even look like it: the reality is much better. It's nicely decorated,... More
