Lanner, Cornwall, England
Pennance Villa, is a stunning, granite built, three-bedroomed traditional Cornish country house, constructed sometime between 1818 and 1840 - the historical records are a little vague!.

It sits in a beautiful, peaceful, rural setting at the end of a private lane with no through traffic. From the patio and all bedrooms there are superb, south-facing, country views.

Having been modernised to a very high standard Pennance Villa retains a light and airy feel with big windows and high ceilings. There is a large conservatory with sofas and chairs overlooking the pool and garden and a great place to sit and relax. The conservatory has subtle lights for evening use.

The property's original features are seen throughout the property. The fireplace in the kitchen is a traditional Cornish hearth (decorative). There is a large (decorativ...

What a fantastic place to spend a holiday! There really are no negatives to this cottage; beautiful well-equipped property in a wonderful, peaceful setting. We never tired of sitting in the vast conservatory taking in the view! The heated pool too, is a brilliant bonus. We were in it daily, regardless of the weather, after a day out. The cottage...

Pennance Villa, Lanner, Redruth. A great location for exploring Cornwall but we loved the house so much we hardly left it. A lovely warm welcome from Chrissy the housekeeper in the form of cake, biscuits, tea and coffee was a great start to our holiday. The house itself is beautifully decorated and everything you may need is there and more!...

Lovely home, has all the essentials you need, lovely rooms, and the pool was nice. House is centered right in the middle of everything so we could go everywhere we wanted to go. I would say though, it's definately not as pretty with poor weather, as it was none stop raining for 5 of the 7 days we were there...

Management response:

Thank you for your review of the house. We are sorry that the weather was unfriendly - that happens in Cornwall, unfortunately. Regarding the damage caused by the candles - the house is checked at the end of each stay and was not there before you arrived - we decided that we were more at fault for leaving them to...

About the neighbourhood
The location is central Cornwall sitting comfortably between the beaches and towns on the north and south coasts the house is a perfect holiday destination for those wishing to simply relax in the house, pool and garden or to explore Cornwall. This is rural Cornwall at its best; peace and quiet abound.

Lanner itself is 100m above sea-level and nestles in a valley surrounded by higher ground. There are walking around the village and cycle trails a little further away. Carn Marth (with its freshwater lake at the very top) is a stones throw from the house and has magnificient views to the south. There are many other footpaths and tracks. Watersports and sailing at Stithians lake is just a short drive away.
Getting around
Our house is in the countryside close to Redruth with its deep mining heritage and within easy striking distance of beautiful beaches at Gwithian, Portreath, and Perranporth. It is also central to nearly everywhere that is exciting, such as Land's End, St Ives, Padstow and so on.

There is good access to the A30 and Redruth; both 2 miles distant. The Cathedral City of Truro is approximately 9 miles away, Falmouth slightly fewer.

In addition to countless beautiful beaches, there are five wineries in Cornwall producing some excellent wines and some of our guests have visited all of them!
