We really enjoyed our stay at this welcoming B&B. Sheila really knows how to look after her guests and make them feel welcome. The house has a real personality. There is a huge light and sunny guest lounge and breakfast room. The full English breakfast is very "full" with also a great choice of cereals and a wonderful fruit salad.... More

Sheila was very caring and friendly. She knew we had made a long journey to the lizard and welcomed us with a pot of tea and cakes. Breakfast was incredible - there was toast, traditional English breakfast (even a vegetarian option), and a fruit salad as a starter. I've never eaten such a huge fruit salad before, and the smoked... More

This is an excellent location, just out of town, overlooking the lighthouse and with three footpaths at your doorstep. A very competitive rate for such a stylish, spacious room. Also, breakfast is gorgeous and plentiful with multiple options and luscious fresh summer fruit salad! Sheila is extremely kind and accommodating, and can give great assistance and guidance with only minimal... More

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
