“Fabulous cottage in wonderful location”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in Penhale cottage for a week and it was absolutely wonderful - just wish we could have stayed a bit longer! David, the owner, was just adding
a few finishing touches to the cottage on our arrival but he was quite happy for us to start moving in, which was really appreciated following our long journey from Yorkshire. There were some beautiful fresh flowers left in each room and we even had wine and cream teas to help us settle in; this was a very thoughtful and welcome addition. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed. David really had thought of everything.
The interior is beautifully decorated and well maintained, and the grounds are superb. We took our dog with us and he loved being able to run freely around the garden and It was lovely for us to sit and relax in such a tranquil location. We are already planning to return to this beautiful place.

Dear Guests,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us such a glowing review! We rely on our feedback so we're absolutely delighted you have enjoyed your break in Penhale so much.
It's wonderful that you appreciated all the little touches - we spend a lot of time with the flowers and making it a home from home so thank you for those comments. We're also very proudly dog-friendly, so it means a lot to us that your dog was able to enjoy the grounds.
It was a real pleasure to host your Cornish break, and I do hope you will return to us soon.

With best wishes and thanks,

David

“Beautiful location, great for families with dogs”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed at Penhale Cottage for our honeymoon with our 5 month old son and two dogs. It was simply beautiful. The cottage, the extensive and well maintained grounds, the owner and they lovely people in the other cottages just made this a lovely place to stay.

The cottage was very spacious and very well equipped. Great terrace area with BBQ that opened up onto the main grounds. A cot and highchair were provided for us. We kept our cottage door open and the dogs came in and out. We had to get them in a few times so not to cause a nusance to our neighbours but other dog owners were great and the dogs interacted with each other.

The location is in a small village with no amenities but a local shop a couple of miles away had most things. We ordered an online shop from Waitrose and the owner kindly unpacked it all for us. There is a utility room with extra fridges, freezer, washing machine and dryer.

We used the location to visit local beaches 30 mins drive away, Tamar Lakes around 40minutes away and Padstow around 1 hour 15 minutes away.

We will definitely return here and have already recommended this accommodation to friends and family.

Thank you David! Wonderful holiday.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for leaving us a kind review of your stay in Penhale - it's very important to us. We are very glad you enjoyed the break and found the cottage to be excellent. We are indeed in a quiet and secluded corner of Cornish countryside, but with towns like Holsworthy being little over 5 miles away we hope you didn't feel it was too remote. It's great that you felt it was a good place to relax as we try and make the cottages and extensive grounds as peaceful as possible. It was a privilege to host your holiday - if you ever fancy another opportunity to unwind in the Tamar Valley, we'd love to see you again soon.

Best wishes and thanks,

David Wright.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review - it is much appreciated. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Penhale cottage, and that you found it clean and comfortable - it is our aim to make it a home from home. It's great that you were also able to enjoy the garden and grounds. Plenty of space for little people to let off steam! I'm glad too that you were able to explore the area. There is always so much to see - the coast in one direction, Dartmoor in the other! I hope you may consider visiting us again in the future; you would be most welcome.

With thanks and best wishes,

David.

“great find! will be returning :)”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I booked this as a quick getaway with two friends (a couple) and myself plus intending 1 dog. They were incredibly accommodating especially around helping me find gluten free places to eat out.

They are very well served cottages and perfect for a quiet weekend!

Many thanks
