We were greeted warmly and the room was lovely with a wonderful sea view. The food was excellent and organic and locally sourced where possible. This was important to us as we are organic farmers ourselves. The house is well situated for walking and public transport. We arrived in Penzance by train and although we took a cab to Glencree it is only a 20 minute walk or so from the station. Our hosts were very helpful and have good local knowledge. We would definitely choose to stay here again if we visit Penzance.
