“Quality accomadation at a great price!”
Reviewed 10 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Returned from Penlowen house after a fantastic Christmas break in the charming area of Polperro in Cornwall.
The accommodation lived up to everything we read on there website and more. The property is situated on the hill top above the coastal path to Polperro so the sea views we had from our top floor living room was magical. The house is well placed for walking and the walk to Talland bay is breath taking. The pretty town of looe is just 4 miles away and has everything you need for your stay. Eden project is only about a 30 minute drive so there is plenty to do even in winter.
The owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble they had decorated the house and put up a tree before our arrival and left a complimentary cream tea for us to enjoy. Yum! I have a young daughter and they offered a baby sitting service on Christmas eve so me and my husband could celebrate a little in one of the charming fishing pubs in the village, The house is very clean and has everything you need for a short or long stay.
All in all I would whole heartedly recommend Penlowen house as a place to stay for your summer or winter holidays. Thanks Sue and Colin for a making our Christmas so special.
