This graceful Victorian house is elegantly furnished to create a relaxed atmosphere. The spacious bedrooms are scrupulously clean,well equipped, and with comfortable beds. Magnificent sea views, and a pleasant garden, further enhance the serene environment. Geoff and Susan are exceptional hosts. We really appreciated their thoughts and guidance on what to see and do in the Region. The Cornish breakfast is first-rate: attractively presented, in generous portions, and scrumptious lu tasty. We’ll be back!

This is a very beautiful B&B. The hosts, were really wonderful. Our room was fabulous, with great views. The room was very well furnished and very clean. Little touches , made the room feel very welcoming and warm. The rest of the B&B, was equally well furnished, this includes the lounge and the breakfast area. The breakfasts were hearty and fresh.

We loved stay at this place. The location is brilliant. To look out of the window and witness the beautiful landscape is too good. The room and facilities are very good. The hosts Geoff and Susan are very welcoming. They are well organised. The breakfast has plenty of options. My wife has decided that we have to come back here again!! It's really a 10 on 10.

I’ve stayed in many B&B’s all over the country, but Penmenner House is the first one that I’ve left feeling that I really wanted to return to, as I usually prefer to try different places. Susannah and Geoff are both wonderful hosts, who go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. The house is bright and elegantly furnished, immaculately clean and all the bedrooms have stunning views out to sea. I stayed 3 nights , with a couple of friends and we all wished we’d be able to stay longer! The location is perfect, with fabulous coastal walks right on the doorstep and several really good places to eat, also within easy walking distance. Breakfast is delicious, loads of choice and all beautifully cooked and presented, definitely sets you up for the day! Sadly, it wasn’t quite sunny enough to enjoy sitting in the lovely garden during this visit, but we did enjoy having drinks and playing some games in the drawing room in the evening. Thank you both for another fabulous stay, I’m already looking at when I could return for my third visit! 😀
