We have stayed at penmarth house on two separate occasions and loved the relaxed atmosphere, the breakfasts were excellent with home made bread, their own eggs and honey. We stayed in a different room each time and they were comfortable with all we needed and wonderful sea views...as we were walking the coast, a pick up and drop off service was available which we used very successfully.
In all, an excellent place to stay, Dick and Francine were the best, and we would definitely go there again if we were in that area of Cornwall.

Room Tip: The large room at the front if its available !

Tuesday morning and our wedding anniversary. We live in St. Keverne so caught the Coverack bus in the rain and seven minutes later we'd arrived. Time to see our accommodation, Penmarth House, and what a surprise that turned out to be. Set in two acres of green wilderness with bee hives, wild rabbits and seagulls, and set back off the road out of the village with 180 degree view of the horizon from our bedroom window - it was perfect for us. Francine and Dick's guest house is the bees' knees with no mobile connections - just perfect!

Our breakfast scrambled eggs were truly bright vivid yellow from the chickens and their honey makes you dizzy with delight.

Unfortunately Francine was in hospital with, hopefully, a temporary problem so, as Dick said, 'We're only half eccentric') But what a coincidence! It turns out that she had worked at Creedy House Medieval Centre near Exeter in the late seventies just after I left there!

Next morning we walked home with a spring in our step.
Can't wait to get the bus back to Penmarth House in beautiful, gentle Coverack.

Room Tip: Book early for the view with the wide sea horizon.

Stayed two nights with Francine and Dick who are perfect hosts, nothing too much trouble and very informative of the area. The breakfasts were excellent with free range eggs, homemade bread, tasty bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and sausage. All was piping hot and freshly cooked.
We asked for packed lunches and we were provided with excellent sandwiches and salad at a very reasonable price. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The view from the front bedroom was spectacular across the whole bay.
We couldn't fault Penmarth House and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: The sea view room is well worth requesting

The plus points are that from the front you have great views, the front bedroom is average but large and the owners are pleasant people. The minus side is that it is untidy - the approach to the house had blue water pipes coiled up and left to the side, pieces of wood covering a trench in the drive, a step ladder - half full wheel barrow- builder trestle just left outside the front, planters with dead plants next to front door, the first two windows you look though reveal rooms full of clutter/ building stuff. As you go in via the hall/dinning room the room has a grimy feel and tatty furniture with skirting board propped up in the corner, the banister as you walk up the stairs has a grimy feel to it and there are cobwebs. The front bedroom was a lot better but still has no skirting and tatty furniture but the bed was good in a large room with a great view. The en suite toilet failed to work 100% (its a pumped toilet). The break fast was good and bad. The eggs were great but the bacon was reheated and dried, the beans were also reheated and dried, the lot was on a piece of bread which did not appear to be toasted so was really not at its best. In all it was badly cooked. The preservers were very good. The coffee and tea was ok. I am at a loss how it has achieved the reviews.

Francine and Dick were outstanding hosts and the view was fantastic. The house overlooks the harbour and has a nice, large garden/patio for relaxing. The house itself is quite nice and an easy walk from town. The breakfast was excellent--fresh and home-made. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay.
