We stayed in 5 B&B's during a walking tour on the south cornwall coast path: the best B&B we had in south cornwall: delightful and happy. Especially the bright happy colors and the many flowers and exotic furniture did make our stay an inspiring experience. Sheila is very dedicated too as the lady who made us feel at home

At Penmenner House we were welcomed with tea and scones and felt at home right from the first minute. We had two rooms to choose from and decided to reside in the "Atlantic Room". From our bed we were able to see the ships out on the sea. Every evening we were asked to let Sheila know our preferences for... More

My son and his family stayed for a 3 night break, in order to meet up with the rest of the family, and had a wonderful time. A comfortable room with an amazing sea view. Sheila was so welcoming and helpful. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much Sheila.

We really enjoyed our stay at this welcoming B&B. Sheila really knows how to look after her guests and make them feel welcome. The house has a real personality. There is a huge light and sunny guest lounge and breakfast room. The full English breakfast is very "full" with also a great choice of cereals and a wonderful fruit salad.... More

Sheila was very caring and friendly. She knew we had made a long journey to the lizard and welcomed us with a pot of tea and cakes. Breakfast was incredible - there was toast, traditional English breakfast (even a vegetarian option), and a fruit salad as a starter. I've never eaten such a huge fruit salad before, and the smoked... More

This is an excellent location, just out of town, overlooking the lighthouse and with three footpaths at your doorstep. A very competitive rate for such a stylish, spacious room. Also, breakfast is gorgeous and plentiful with multiple options and luscious fresh summer fruit salad!

We arrived at 1545 hours and realised that check in is only from 1600 hours so the door was locked. Guests came in and out but we had to wait outside. They informed us that the owner was out and should be back soon. Fifteen minutes later, finally a young girl named Tula came to open the door for us... More
