We stayed here for 3 nights over the easter weekend and had a wonderful time. Our hosts, Jack and Faye, really made us feel at home and also made us feel very relaxed. This is not a boutique B and B and neither does it sell itself as one but a real honest home from home, with a truly amazing location right on the coastal path. I couldn't believe the view from the bedroom window in the morning - quite simply, stunning!

Jack and Faye have a perfect little haven in Pencarmol away from the crowds (In March anyway!) I needed a quiet relaxing time and that's exactly what I got. They treated me like a friend from the start and gave me lots of advice on local things to do and places to go if I fancied it. They were the perfect hosts. The breakfast was great, and I could have asked for just about anything and Im sure they would have it already prepared! The location is great, the closest house possible to the Harbour and the South West Coast path literally runs past the door. Jack showed me the delights of the Cobweb Inn and the take away fish and chips were of a high class restaurant standard. A really nice surprise. The lounge was comfortable and packed full of paintings and reading material. I will be back asap to stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the front of the house have clearer views of the Harbour but all are lovely.

We stayed with Jack and Faye for just one night last week on the way back home from a week long tour of the SW - having stayed at Pencarmol 7 years ago my wife and I made a point of stopping here again as we'd enjoyed it some much the first time around. We were delighted to see that nothing has changed from the warm welcome and the cosy rooms to the fantastic breakfast (my wife loved the pancakes!) and beautiful view.....highly recommended, and we'll be back again I'm sure!

Jack and Faye gave us a very warm welcome to there house and also made time to say hello to our two dogs.Tea and cake on arrival was most enjoyable and as for the offer at breakfast the choice of freshly cooked full english or pancakes and a large selection for vegaterians.
The room was very comfortable and clean with lovely views over the harbour.
Would highly recomend a stay and will be returning soon

We have been visiting Boscastle over the last 19 years and recommend Pencarmol as perfect, one of the best bed and breakfast’s we have stayed in, we cannot fault in any way. The views of the harbour from our room were absolutely fantastic, the best we have had from any B&B in Boscastle!

A very warm welcome was given by Jack and Faye who could not do enough to help and were not intrusive, along with a nice welcoming pot of tea and slices of gorgeous cake.

The bedroom was very comfortable and very clean.

The extensive English breakfast will be greatly missed (there is also a choice of fish, porridge, pancakes, cereals, fresh fruit, etc), all locally produced and to a high standard.

We felt totally relaxed throughout our stay and really did not want to leave. Thank you so much Jack and Faye, we very much look forward to coming back next year, thanks again.

The three basics we look for in a holiday stay are clean premises, good food and friendly hosts. At Pencarmol all three scored highly.

After an ambitious drive from Norwich including a less than welcome wrong turn in the hill fog across Bodmin Moor we arrived at the B&B praying that 'this had better be worth the journey'. We'd barely got out of the car when Jack welcomed us in with much needed tea and homemade cake. Plenty of useful advice was given in regards to local pubs, restaurants etc. We felt very settled from the start.

Owing to other bookings we stayed in the larger double for five nights and the smaller double for the last night. Both rooms were clean, tidy, well furnished and everything worked. Beds were comfortable. Views from the windows were picture postcard. Very quiet at night (in a good way).

Good selection of breakfasts available. Full English was well cooked with quality ingredients. Service from the hosts was friendly and efficient.

As stated above the location was about as good as it gets in this part of Cornwall. As the B&B is situated right on the coastal path you don't have to try hard to find some excellent walks around the locality.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pencarmol and wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend to others.
