Beautiful old house situated close to the centre of Lostwithiel - easy access to other parts of Cornwall so was ideal for us as we were exploring. Lovely comfortable large bedroom with a marvellous view over the town. Lots of information and help available, wi-fi access... More

We had a lovely stay for two nights. Chris & Heidi were great hosts and the large room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was amazing. The local restaurants are good, would recommend the Italian.

Couldn't be happier with our choice. Lovely large room with a view and en suite bathroom in a lovely large house. Really friendly, helpful hosts. Parking a wee bit tricky at the back of the house, but easily sorted. Will certainly book again when we return to Cornwall. And Lostwithiel is a lovely little town.

Just enjoyed two nights at Penrose and Heidi and Chris certainly are expert in the hospitality business. They really have thought of everything and also have a wealth of knowledge about the local area which they are happy to share. In particular take their advice about where to visit and where to have dinner. Our room had every creature comfort... More
