“Like home from home, very welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2009

We stayed for a short weekend this being myself, husband, 4 yr old and our dog. Ideally located for walks to the beach, lighthouse and other coves. Village 5 mins walk with 2 great pubs and a chip shop. Also a childrens play park. Accomodation great with rooms decorated to a very high standard. Plenty of tea making facilities. Fab breakfast with ample helpings. Overall a lovely welcoming place to stay, large lounge for your use so you can come and go as you please and dont feel that you are isolated to your room if the weather is bad. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

Really nice lady runs the B&B, made us feel at home. Perfect place to stop while hiking South West Coat Path.
The rooms are huge, the house is fantastic. The breakfast was the best B&B breakfast we've ever had.

We stayed at Penmenner House whilst visiting for a friend's wedding. Although we live nearby neither of us wanted to drive the 30 odd miles home. After reading the last review we were a little apprehensive. What a load of rubbish that review is!!!
The room was lovely and had a really comfortable bed and the bathroom was decorated with driftwood as opposed to the plastic the last reviewer talked about and had a really nice feel to it. The room itself was light and airy and the views were fantastic. Had a lovely breakfast the next morning and managed to get it down despite the hangover from the night before! Sheila who owns the place is a delight to talk to and is extremely welcoming.
There are plenty of places to eat and we have tried them in the past but we were at a wedding and so were fed.

Not a place to recommend. Uncomfortable bed cheap on cheap furnishings and the bathroom was a joke, the shower is tiny everything is plastic. Avoid at all costs.

Chose this B and B as it was so close the coast path and I wanted to do some hiking. It was about 5 minutes walk from the coast path and the scenery was absolutely stunning. From my bedroom I had views all the way to Kynance Bay. The was clean and comfortable, with TV and plenty of tea making facilities.

This is an old house tastefully decorated, the owner even said that there was an old smugglers tunnel in the basement. The breakfast was a great start to a long day walking and in the evening there were plenty of places to eat in the village, which was five minutes on foot from the house.

defiantly recommended for anyone walking or who loves a great view out to sea.
