A wonderful Edwardian home from home. The decor is from a different era. The rooms are large and spacious. The furniture is a beauty to behold. However, what makes Penkerris so special is the landlady. The host is charming, kind and unique. A faultless experience.

I am sorry these people were disappointed. I do wish they could have told me at the time what was wrong, so we could put it right.

I don't know how far it is, but I do know that they are so lovely in that b&b that they would provide you with a packed lunch. There is also a fabulous bakery with Cornish pasties etc.

For holiday guests we cook and serve breakfast at 8.30 AM. But if anyone needs to catch a boat (to Scilly ) or to make an early start for some reason we can usually manage something earlier. For workmen in the winter we... More
