5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Incredible little b&b wish I could have stated longer than the two nights. More like a top boutique hotel than a b&b. Very helpful and informative.
We had a two year old with us and the owner helped us with his needs at breakfast. Great place, great value and can't wait to book up again.

Myself and my fiancee have just arrived back from our stay in Cornwall to celebrate my birthday and our engagement. We stayed at the lovely Little Pengelly Farm House, which was a truely lovely place to spend a few days. Our host Maxine, was so helpful and very curteous and even went to find a map to show us how to get to some places we had heard about and wanted to see. The accomodation was of a very high standard (bed was a bit too hard for me), but that was just my own choice. Would love to go back again and maybe try the self catering barns out. Hopefully that wont be too long to wait.

We were after somewhere to stay in Cornwall for a few days at the last minute and were fortunate to stumble upont Litlle Pengelly Farm. Managed to book the New Barn for 3 days via email which was very convenient. Arrived to find a lovely building in an idylic setting. The New Barn was lovely, everything that you needed for a self catering holiday was there for you. Spotlessly clean and all equipment well looked after too. Rooms were bright and airy but with the dimming lights you could make it feel really warm and homely in the evening. The grounds were great too, loads of room to have a wander round and brill if you have a dog like ourselves. The cream teas were gorgeous, never seen so much clotted cream and jam!! We were so impressed that we have just booked another week in December. Good location if for pretty much all of Southern Cornwall but still not too far away from Perranporth where we love to visit also! Thank you for a great stay, see you in December!

We arrived in the rain (seems to be the way in Cornwall) and found the farm easily enough, there are fairly obvious signs on the mainroad. We were met by Maxine and Robert who were really friendly and curtious and we felt really welcome. They showed us to our room and advised us on a local pub that served good food. The room was a good size and well equipped, with nice furtniture. The modern bathroom and the whole house was spotlessly clean.
The next day we had a great breakfast, lots of choice and cooked to order, and the breakfast room has a great ambience and views across the surrounding fields.
We were only staying for the weekend but next time we plan on returning with our kids for a whole week and staying in one of the letting cottages which we were shown round and look fantastic! Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting a break in Southern Cornwall, excellent accomodation, superb hosts and a really convient location to have as a base in which to explore the local area!

On our day of arrived we were met by Robert who showed us our room for the next three days plus the breakfast room.
There was ample parking for ourselves and other guests. We took our 16 month old pomeranian dog with us and there was plenty of grassfor him to run about.
Our bedroom was of a good size, warm and spotlessly clean. The onsuite was again spotlessly clean. All fixtures and fitting throughout were modern and good of a good quality.
The following morning at breakfast we met Maxine who was a model host. The breakfast was most enjoyable and the outlook from the breakfast room was very much rural. Maxine talked to us and the other guests offering advice and answering all our questions.
To find Little Pengelly in the dark could have been a problem in its rural position, but we took a satnav with us so that wasn't a problem for us.
We could find nothing wrong with Little Pengelly. Its rural position may not suit everyone, but intend to use it again next time we are in that area of Cornwall.

The accommodation was generally clean and tidy, although the bathroom was over the corridor, but for our exclusive use. That was no problem. However, we found the shower to have hardly any pressure at all and to just 'drip' out. Also, the tv was not easy to operate as it had a set-top-box, but with NO instructions! We do not have or need a set-top box at home and so were not familiar with how to operate it. It took us AGES to get the tv on and when we did the volume kept cutting out, so the film we were watching just had 'clipped' speech. We decided to turn it off. The next morning, it was the same thing with the news! So, we gave up. At breakfast, we were greeted by the propietor, Maxine, but she did not invite us to help ourselves to cereal(which was on a side table). After a little while, we noticed it and realised we should just go and help ourselves. There was no butter, salt and pepper, sauces or jams/marmalades on the table or anywhere to help ourselves to. We had to ask. They were then brought out from the back. Other people also had to ask. One man didn't get his tea and had to go and knock at the kitchen door to ask for it. I had to go and knock and ask for salt and pepper, as did another child. When my husband asked for honey, Maxine just brought honey(from the back) but did not ask what I would like! Both my husband and I were given fried eggs that were burnt and blackened around the edges. However, our main complaint is about the attitude of both Maxine and her husband. After we had paid, we said we just wanted to point out a couple of things(after we had told Maxine that we were happy with the cleanliness of the room etc). We proceeded to tell Maxine that the tv did not work properly and the water pressure in the shower was poor. She immediately got on the defensive and took our observations personally. We were just trying to help them by informing them of these two things that were not 'right'. She had to interrupt us to go and take collection of some strawberries and left us standing waiting for her. She did not come back into the breakfast-room and so we went outside where she was standing talking to her husband and another man and woman. Maxine then informed her husband about the tv and shower and he, in a brusque and curt manner, just tried to dismiss it all. My husband, who is a plumber, persisted in explaining the problem and also told him that it wasn't for our benefit, as were we leaving, but for the benefit of future guests - he pointed out that the British are very bad at speaking up and that a lot of people probably wouldn't say anything but that they would tell other people and therefore reduce busniess for Maxine and her husband(?Tom?) Again, Tom, seemed to get on the defensive and my husband felt he most probably wouldn't do anything to recitfy the problem with the shower or tv! We went to collect our case from the room and then came back to look for someone to give the key to. There was NO-ONE to be found anywhere! The place had been vacated! No staff anywhere! We were extremely surprised as this was only a few seconds later! We also wanted to ask about the cream teas that were advertised - i.e. what time they were served that afternoon and how much they were! There was no-one to ask, so, rather disappointed, we loaded our car and left, leaving the key in the door of our room. As we were leaving the farm and going down the very narrow lane back to the road, we saw a car come from the main road and turn onto the lane. My husband was just about to back up to let the car proceed, when it shot backwards in a frenzied way to wait for us to go forward. When we got alongside it, we saw that it was Maxine - she neither looked at us nor acknowledged us with a wave, let alone a smile. In fact she looked harrassed and cross. Our conclusion was that Maxine and her husband were trying to do TOO much and did not have any time at all to give to us. They were running the B&B, open to the public for lunches/cream teas and they also had self-catering accommodation on site. They both seemed harrassed and stressed, unlike any of the other B&B proprietors we encountered on our wonderful trip to Cornwall. Because of our experience, we would never return to Pengelly Farm and would not recommend it to anyone else. Needless to say, we did not return for cream tea that afternoon, but discovered an Organic Farm, nearby where they served the most delicious cream tea and where we subsequently went back for Sunday lunch! Maxine and Tom missed out on some extra business from us, purely because they were TOO BUSY to speak to us properly. Their attitude was all wrong.

Looking for just one night and was lucky enough to find a room at the Little Pengelly Farm B & B located in Leedstown, Cornwall. How lucky were we to be given the New Barn - beautiful accommodation, tastefully decorated and everything one could need for a trip away from home. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Amazingly comfortable bed and brilliant shower completed our stay. Will definately be back. Nearly forgot to mention the fantastic cooked breakfast!!

Room Tip: Don't worry - sure they are all lovely!
