Just had three nights at Penmenner House and thoroughly enjoyed Sheila's friendly hospitality.This lovely old Victorian house is just a short walk from the centre of Lizard and enjoys fantastic views. It's very quiet and very restful. There's a large and comfy lounge, interesting decor and off-road parking (rare in some parts of Cornwall). We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite... More

Delightful place to stay. Warm and welcoming. Quiet and relaxing. Friendly, trusting and safe. Great breakfast. Excellent choice and plenty of it. Fresh fruit salad every morning different each day. Close to pubs and restaurants in the village. Good place for walkers, wildlife watchers and/or those looking to relax.

We stayed here for a few days last week with our dog. Sheila made us very welcome - lovely big quiet house with a fantastic view and huge delicious breakfast. We stayed in the lighthouse suite which had views over the sea and to the lighthouse. Penmenner house is on the outskirts of Lizard village so we could get to... More

Stayed here while walking the South west coast path. The house does have sea views but is actually quite a way back from the sea. The owner works elsewhere so a neighbour let us in. The room was comfortable, average size. Good breakfast and sleep

I was on my own for a late walking holiday. Sheila made me feel very much at home and free to come and go as I choose. The house is beautiful, stunningly decorated, my room was perfect and the breakfast amazing, especially the fresh fruit and delicious coffee. 100pc recommended.

I received a warm welcome to this peaceful and spacious house, next to which runs a footpath to a beautiful cove. It is only a very short walk to the centre of the village so it's ideally placed. My room was pleasant and comfortable, with a lovely view of the sea. The breakfast was excellent, particularly the delicious fresh fruit... More

We stayed in 5 B&B's during a walking tour on the south cornwall coast path: the best B&B we had in south cornwall: delightful and happy. Especially the bright happy colors and the many flowers and exotic furniture did make our stay an inspiring experience. Sheila is very dedicated too as the lady who made us feel at home

At Penmenner House we were welcomed with tea and scones and felt at home right from the first minute. We had two rooms to choose from and decided to reside in the "Atlantic Room". From our bed we were able to see the ships out on the sea. Every evening we were asked to let Sheila know our preferences for... More

We have just returned from a lovely few days away in The Lizard. The beautiful weather and amazing scenery was made even better by such a warm and friendly welcome from those at Penmennar House B&B. The room was great, with amazing sea views. En suite was well appointed too. Breakfast was brilliant! The fruit salad was such a lovely... More

My son and his family stayed for a 3 night break, in order to meet up with the rest of the family, and had a wonderful time. A comfortable room with an amazing sea view. Sheila was so welcoming and helpful. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much Sheila.
