“Lovely house, location and greeting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

A lovely weekend away with the girl's. A relaxing and comfortable house to stay in. The service was great with a lovely greeting. Penleaze has everything you need, a home from home. I would definitely like to return with my family.

Penleaze was the perfect place for the family to gather to celebrate a 40th birthday. This was not only because the large house is stunning but also due to the warmth and kindness of our hosts Richard and Stefan. Great memories were made in our week stay and we look forward to an excuse to return.

We could not recommend Penleaze enough to friends and family.

We have just spent a wonderful week at Penleaze. The welcome was amazing - flowers, cream tea, fires lit in anticipation of our arrival. Although the weather wasn't brilliant, the comfort of the house,and especially the hot tub (!) more than compensated. Our party ranging from 13 to 55 had decided to make use of the house's beauty by holding a formal dinner, yes complete with tuxedos and long dresses, and over three evenings produce our own "Come Dine With Me.". The kitchen proved so well-equipped and the stately dining room a perfect location for our extra special meals! We would all thoroughly recommend, hope to return and say a big thank you to Stefan and Richard.

Dear Sharon,
Thank you so much for your great feedback. You were such a kind group of people and we are really happy that you had a lovely time at Penleaze. After you've told us about your "come dine with me", I suggest, you should go on television. It did sound amazing!!! It would be an absolute pleasure to see you again in the future!

Best wishes and thank you once again

My family and I went to stay in penleaze for a week. We were a group of 9 ranging in age from 3 to 70. I cannot say enough good things about the house. Beautiful, spacious, fabulous decor, such attention to detail. We had everything we needed! We were there for one of the most dreadful weeks in the summer so we really did use ALL the facilities in the house as there was little point going anywhere in the lashing rain and howling wind. There was enough gaming equipment to satisfy our 9 year old son and enough tvs and garden houses and nooks and crannies to keep the girls busy for the week. Everyone, without exception basked in the heated comfort of the hot tub! We made use of all the kitchen equipment and gadgets and cooked wonderful meals and drank plenty of good wine in all the wonderful rooms in the house!The owners are a fantastic couple who provide a wonderful cornish tea as a welcome and are always on hand to answer questions and suggest places to visit yet are completely unobtrusive. They are so welcoming and have made penleaze a fabulous place to come and visit and luxuriate in. 10 out of 10. We will definitely return.

We've just spend a wonderful week at Penleaze Farmhouse in Cornwall - our hosts Stefan & Richard were excellent, most welcoming, there if we needed anything, otherwise invisible so it felt like we had the place entirely to ourselves.

The house itself is in a beautiful location with wide ranging views across the countryside and down to the sea. The house is very well equipped and we found that it had everything we needed and more for our family reunion. The house is close enough to the village and the pub, but far enough away to be quiet and private.

We have greatly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this excellent property to anyone else looking for a holiday base in or around Bude.

Before we came to stay at Penleaze we had read the reviews below and wondered - would the actual experience live up to our now heightended expectations? - they did and then some!! The house itself is stylishly decorated but still has a homely feel. The warm welcome we received from Stefan along with the amazing goodies surpassed what you would ever expect. There was something for everyone: kiddies loved the hot tub (and the not so small variety of kiddie quite liked it too!), and it's surprising how much entertainment can come from having cubed or crushed ice on demand! The location is also perfect for exploring the area, we too went with Stefan's suggestion of 'Life's a Beach' all I can say is yum! (such friendly staff too). The Weir Restaurant literally opposite the turning off the A39 also served us delicious food and great if you have young children as playground on site. Anyway back to the house - would we go again?...100% yes! - Thank you

Just returned after an amazing stay at Penleaze Farmhouse - all the previous reviews do not do this house justice as it is that good....Everything you could ever want is there, Stefan is a top man giving great advice on many things including places to eat etc- you must try "Life's a Beach" if you like Seafood......
We all wanted to buy the house, as the location is fantastic, the furnituire is in keeping with the style, everything has been thought of down to the last little thing - You must do the walk into Bude along the canal its lovely - and a great breakfast at The Weir Cafe along the way..

We have rented posibly over the last 10 years about 15 holiday cottages, this is the best ever by a long margin - Great House, great facilities,great hosts,fantastic value for money..

We will definitely be back, with our extended family - there are so many rooms that I can dissappear and have some quite time without them - LOL

If you look at this and are in anyway concerned that the owner lives next door - do not be, they are around if you need them and if you do not, you don't even see them - TOP Guys

The welcome pack is amazing - we could have a cup of tea, scone with jam and cream etc before we even unpacked. - we didn't but it was very tempting.

Thanks Richard and Stefan - absolutely First Class

Kind Regards

Mark
