“Glorious sea views!”
Reviewed June 22, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is such a lovely place to stay, and the views are amazing from the sitting room.

The walk down to Polperro is only about 10 minutes, and its a lovely walk we really enjoyed doing. It's such a pretty lane with cottages along it and glorious views down to the harbour. The walk back up was not as daunting as we thought, it's steep but totally manageable.

The kitchen is really well equipped and the bed was very comfortable.

We will definitely stay here again.

“Very cosy house with gorgeous view”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Penlowen house is tucked in a quite neighourhood with spectacular sea view. The kids loved playing in the garden and watching the little rabbits.
The house is very close to the beach and to town. Very close to a scenic coastal root. Bare in mind good walking shoes will be needed.
The house is very well equipped, clean and cosy. Perfect for a romantic holiday as well as family.
Susan (the host) was great with communication, super friendly and very helpful. She gave us tips on things to do and restaurants to check. Thanks Susan.
Will definitely go again.

“Perfect place for a family holiday”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A great welcome. The property is very comfortable, modern and and pristine. Quiet location with space to park. Sea views from the main living area and the large garden. Short walk to Polperro village centre and harbour down lanes and though woods. Waking distance to Talland Bay. We had a very enjoyable week.

“Fantasic stay with Amazing sea views!!.”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have just returned from a wonderful few days in Penlowen House. We had a very warm welcome from Sue and Colin and they couldn't have been more helpful and the cream tea was a real treat.The house is very comfortable and well equipped with modern appliances. The sea views from the lounge windows are spectacular and it was hard to pull ourselves away to explore the area. It is very close to the South West Coast path and a short walk or drive from Polperro. The towns of Looe and Fowie are also nearby and well worth visiting. We can thoroughly recommend Penlowen for an enjoyable holiday..

“Fabulous few days”

Wish we could have stayed longer. Location was fantastic, with easy reach of lots of pretty fishing towns. A few minutes walk to the coastal path which was stunning. We were very lucky with the weather.The House is beautifully clean and extremely well appointed, with a beautiful log burner for chilly evenings. A very comfy bed in the double room, but the icing on the cake was the fabulous view. Sue and Colin were extremely accommodating and all in all we had a lovely family break.

Had a lovely stay at Penlowen. Sue and Colin were very welcoming and friendly. Sue gave us loads of info and help, very generously lending my children wet suits and boogy boards for the beach! House was great, just what we needed. Kids were happy with the wifi and we were very comfortable. Although the house is right next to the owners house, we were left to enjoy our stay, they were not at all intrusive. Will definitely be back!
