Overview

A stunning part of Cornwall to explore and enjoy. The National Trust care for the unique habitats found here, including Loe Pool the largest natural lake in Cornwall and the unusual shingle bank of Loe Bar. The rangers hold regular events and activities for all the family to enjoy. Stop off at The Stables Cafe, which is open every day through the summer and on weekends in winter, for delicious cake, coffee and light lunches.

I wasn't sure how to rate Penrose because I found it to be a beautiful place to visit but I didn't enjoy removing the ticks from both my partner's legs and my own after a day walking around the estate. Wear long trousers! Great walks...More

Beautiful woodland walks but avoid the stable tea rooms.... not tea rooms but an overpriced shed. Two cups of tea in paper cups and 2 pieces of stale pre-packed cake an unbelievable £10.10 !!!!

Very popular all year round but a wonderful place to walk. Free parking in Helston and a great afternoons walk around the lake.

The park with the accompanying walks are lovely. Free parking. Caution : the signpost to Penrose is about the size of a piece of A4 paper. Easily missed. Maps and signposts are a bit misleading. The paths are in good shape, wide. Lots of bikers,...More

Had a good walk along the lake, called in to the cafe, it's not really a cafe, you can however get a hot drink and a sandwich, it is quite small. You can walk for miles, it's a nice place, good parking, recommended

If you want a good walk, whether coastal or inland, than you have the choice here. Car parks available in different corners of estate. Lovely views and pleasant area. Good for singles, couples, families and dog walkers. .
