Leading from the kitchen are patio doors which take you to your own private patio via steps and a gentle slope where you will find garden furniture and your own exclusive hot tub. This patio can be linked with the neighboring cottage, Kocha, giving two couple a chance to holiday together, yet retain their own privacy. In the centre of the courtyard is a large communal gazebo and gas BBQ. We have 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom cottages available to rent throughout the year. All of our cottages have WiFi access free of charge.More

Before I begin, I have to state a warning. Everybody who comes to stay here should be aware that Pengelly Farm is located in the middle of nowhere. Witn poor weather you'll face a problem to plan your activities. Now more to the point: The Gwennel is a beautiful cottage. The living room is huge and very comfortably furnished. The kitchen is (almost) fully equipped (Hi Sue and Paul, an electric coffee maker was all we missed). The courtyard and especially the gas grill require urgent maintenance. The only drawback was the (non existing) WiFi service in the cottage. Internet ended outside the massive walls. This is something the owners urgently have to work on.

Hi, we are pleased that you were appreciative of our barn conversion. As a working farm, we are indeed rural, yet less than 2 miles from the nearest village and the main arterial A30 trunk road. We hope most guests appreciate our tranquility, yet close proximity to the main access road in Cornwall, but understand rural life is not for all. We are sorry that you had such bad weather during your stay with us, believe me if we could control this we would. You should have had an information pack in Gwennel listing most, if not all venues and amenities in the county, apologies if this aspect was missed. Ah, wifi! As the cottages are 250 year old granite and stone walled buildings, wifi does not pass through the walls at all. To overcome this we asked BT to install additional phone lines to each cottage. We have been informed by BT that to even install the first of the final lines needed, update of the incoming line is needed, to the cost to ourselves of £12000! Yes, that figure is correct. We are now looking to install satellite Wifi, our negotiations with BT have been continuous for nearly 12 months. We do have wifi access in the gazebo in the courtyard, but realise this is not good enough for all, which is why we are still persueing other options. We apologise if this spoils the stay for you. Thank you for your review, and once again we hope you enjoyed your stay with us in some part. Paul and Sue.

Just returned yesterday from our weeks holiday in Gwennel cottage, we would thoroughly recommend this place to our friends and family, and hope to return ourselves. Very well planned and the best disabled friendly cottage we have had. Lovely cream tea and flowers awaited our arrival and a bottle of wine to enjoy later on. Lots of useful extras had been left for us to use, like dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid, and the kitchen had all the utensils you could need. Only minor negatives were, the courtyard area looks unloved and neglected and the bin area needs tidying up and proper labelling so we knew what to recycle ! Also the farm dogs barked a lot at times and there was dog mess not cleared up.

We visited this self-catering accomodation in 2012, choosing it because it is in a part of the country we love and it also is dog friendly, and suitable for disabled clients. The property is in a courtyard of other newly converted buildings and in the courtyard there is a gazebo (where you can get a WIFI signal) a BBQ and a hot tub. The property was well thought out with easy access for a wheelchair. It was beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard and the private patio which led from the kitchen area was well provided with furniture. Everything was of the highest standard. The owners were very helpful, the property was close to all amenities, there was a games room on site and fishing lakes were being constructed a short walk from the property, where you could sit and have a picnic. Lovely place, lovely area and lovely place to retun to in the future.

Truly a beautifully designed cottage in a sensitively developed farm complex. Ideal for anyone with limited mobility. Really well appointed kitchen and very well decorated with stylish furniture and excellent facilities. Being near Truro most of Cornwall is within easy reach . Owners were extremely welcoming as well. I recommend this very highly and look forward to a return visit in the future.
