“The best cottage in Cornwall to date!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

My family and myself have been visiting Cornwall for the past six years, staying in a different cottage each time. I can confidently say that, Penleaze is the most comfortable, elegant, spacious, luxurious and child friendly place we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The bed rooms are all spacious and comfortable with fantastic traditional furniture. The two living rooms are perfect for families, with sky in one and play station in the other. A dining table large enough for ten was a fantastic touch, giving the opportunity for the family to gather for breakfast and evening meals together. I loved the Aga stove, the American style fridge/freezer, the antique radio, the multitude of cooking dishes, the massive amount of antique furniture and the entire feel of the house. Outside was a wonder. The hot tub was a saviour on cold days; the summer house was magical (I am going to be reproducing on for my garden in the near future); the bench swing was a perfect place to sip a glass of wine and at sun set, the decking was a perfect spot to relax and take in the sight. I will be booking a return visit as soon as possible, I can not wait to meet Sefan and Richard again as they are the most lovely hosts a holiday home could have.

Penleaze is a home from home - very comfortable and beautifully furnished. The owners live next door and are pleasant, helpful and welcoming! The kitchen table was groaning under the plate of freshly baked scones, jam, clotted cream, fruit basket, local cider and biscuits and milk! We stayed there as a party of 10 - 6 adults and 4 children and were very satisfied with the facilities to keep us all occupied! The children loved the large enclosed (when we shut the gate!) garden with its playhouse and summerhouse. The inclusion of DVD players and satellite TV was a bonus - particularly on our only wet day!
The bedrooms were beautiful and comfortable in the main - but the antique beds took a little getting used to! A hairdryer and larger bath towels would have been welcome but are only tiny niggles in what was a fabulous weeks holiday! Oh and did I mention the hot tub?!!

This is not a b/b any more , now a holiday cottage. spent half term week here, with our son and daughter their partners and the five grandchildren. Great from first being met by very helpful owner to the final day of sad goodbye. Spent cold windy days building dams on the beach at Bude examining rock pools,fabulous lunch at " Life's a Beach" then back to log fires, and, once the children are in bed, a glass of wine in the hot tub, bliss. This house has so much going for it plenty of space for us all to spread out and relax and comfort even the summer house is luxurious.

A large group of us stayed at Penleaze, some of us had teens and some of us had young kids. With 2 reception rooms, a sun room, a huge garden and a hot tub there was something for everyone to enjoy and entertain us. This used to be a B&B but has now been converted into a gorgeous self catering house suitable for large groups (up to 10). When we arrived there was a bowl of fresh fruit and some bottles of cider waiting for us on the farmhouse table. The kitchen is a feast for the eyes with its working Aga range (as well as conventional stove), American fridge freezer and plenty of storage space plus a utility room with both washing machine and tumble dryer. The bedrooms are spacious and beautiful, each one is decorated in a Victorian style. Our kids enjoyed playing hide and seek in all the nooks and crannies! Our only personal downside was that we didn't realise that this house was located on the Cornwall/ Devon borders so it was an hour or so drive to the Northern Cornish beaches - but that was our fault! The local beaches at Bude were also very nice and closeby. Mr Taylor, the owner (who also farms the neighbouring sheep/ chicken farm) was incredibly helpful and always smiling. Thoroughly recommended.

My partner and I spent a long weekend at Penleaze in March 2006. The room was lovely with an amazing panoramic view of the countryside and a very well decorated and homely feel.
The owners were very accomodating and helpful and the breakfast was by far the freshest and best cooked that i've ever had in any hotel.
The village of Marhamchurch is very small but it is easy to get a Taxi to nearby Bude. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone that is lookong for a peceful and relaxing stay in a wonderful setting.
