Penleaze Farmhouse
Reviewed March 6, 2012

A long weekend my family will not forget, such a warm welcome from Stefan. The delicate perfume from the flowers, the log fire blazing and all the little extras took our breath away. The kitchen table heaving with 'cornish goodies' for us all to share, everything was just perfect. Penleaze Farmhouse is a perfect property for a get together, so much room to spread out and do your own thing then all get together round the table. The house is spotless and very well equipped, opulence with a homely feel and fantastic views. A truly wonderful place to stay.

Having just returned from a long weekend at Penleaze i am writing this review with a very large smile on my face. Our party had a great time playing lords and ladies of the manor. The attention to detail was out of this world. Alot of time, effort and love goes into running this Farmhouse. Our group of friends try to get together once a year, and i must say this is the best place we have stayed. Each room is so clean, comfortable and luxurious its very hard to leave Penleaze at the end of your stay. Thankyou Stefan once again for a fantastic time :-)

Having recently had a baby, we decided to spend a week relaxing in Cornwall but needed a property to house 2 sets of grandparents, aunties and uncles as well as a small baby. Penleaze Farmhouse was the perfect solution offering large bedrooms and 3 reception rooms all with large TVs, DVD player and one with Sky.
The hospitality offered when we arrived was outstanding and every need was met. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
The photos, although beautiful, can't begin to represent the friendly atmosphere of the hosts and the house. The 'welcome pack' and beautiful fresh flowers was a fabulous surprise and everything you need for a comfortable holiday seems to have been thought of. Penleaze really is a home from home! Although our home doesn't have a wonderful hot tub :-(

If you are looking for a property that can accommodate 2 families, 3 generations or a getaway for just the 2 of you, Penleaze Farmhouse is for you. The minute you step out of the car you are greeted with such a warm welcome it feels like you are returning to your own summer home. The photos show such grandeur which Penleaze is; however it is also very comfortable and homely that you don’t feel afraid to sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning views whilst the children enjoy playing in the garden. The personal touches that are all around the Farmhouse are a lovely surprise that we will not tell you about as we do not want to spoil it for you. Its cleanliness and presentation is to an excellent standard and the amount of room within the farmhouse does actually mean that even with 8 in the house you can feel like a million miles from anyone or just as nice you can all sit together very comfortably. It was a nice surprise to have ample supplies of the little things that you really do not want to buy in your holiday shopping such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tin foil, sandwich bags the list could go on and on, it has been one of the best supplied holiday rentals that we have been to. At first we were a little surprised to see how close the owners were to the property, but this was not a problem at all as the owners offer an excellent customer service and makes you feel more like friends than people renting the property. Nothing is too much bother for them, and they never made us feel like we were imposing.
Penleaze is just a 5 minute car journey (10min if traffic is busy) from Bude which in itself is a haven again for all generations. Great beaches, stunning walks for all levels and lovely town with great shops. Each corner or cove makes you think you have found yet another hidden secret, normally we do not return to stay in the same place & property because there is so much of this lovely country to see; however we will definitely make an exception with Penleaze and Bude. The only thing to take into account is that Bude is quite hilly, but does have excellent paths that can accommodate pushchairs/wheelchairs.

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.
