Stayed previously about 7 years ago so this 2nd visit makes us "repeats" have every hope of returning so we can become "regulars" Everything you could hope for in hosts and accommodation.

We have just spent an excellent week staying at Penarwyn House where the quality of accommodation was outstanding and the service was second to none. A lovely house beautifully restored by Mike and Jan. The decor and furnishings were superb and our room was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean with a luxurious bathroom. A genuinely friendly welcome plus home made... More

This was my first trip to England and Cornwall, while visiting the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens. My stay at the Penarwyn House was fantastic! The hosts, Mike and Jan are personable and charming, and have a great deal of intricate and fasinating historical information not only on Penarwyn, but the surrounding villages as well. The rooms are exquisite,... More

My husband found this wonderful B&B so that we could visit the Eden project for a long weekend treat.
