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

I found this B & B on booking.com. This house is full of character, a reasonable price and located conveniently. It was difficult to find as the address on the site is not the street that you drive into to park. A call to the owners set me on the right path. It would be helpful to have the parking... More

Thank you for your comments. We do re-confirm all bookings which include directions on how to find us and park. Unfortunately not everybody reads these confirmations. The room in question (Room 3) was booked for 2 people only (not a family) and is one of our largest kingsize doubles. There is plenty of room for 2 people and luggage. We... More

My family recently visited us in Lostwithiel and stayed at Penrose B&B. They very much enjoyed their stay. My parents had what's probably the best room - with an elevated view over the town. They loved the breakfast and hospitality of their wonderful hosts.

Greeted on arrival by Chris & Heidi, who made our dog feel at home straightaway, and then explained the house, the breakfast routines and the locality. We had a big, comfortable room at the top of the house (room 7), extra seating, an eclectic mix of furniture and a small desk in the window with a view over the town.... More
