What can I say? Probably the best b an b I have stayed in. Superb facilities, very comfortable surroundings and great hosts. Breakfast was a delight. Will certainly be back!! My only complaint? The weather!

We have just returned from a three day stay at South Penarth and can only agree with other positive reviewers. Judy and Chris were incredibly welcoming. The room was excellent - all the little touches that make a stay special were there, from quality towels to home made shortbread. Breakfast was fab, great home made bread and jams, as well as the full English! The location is ideal for touring around Cornwall and Truro is a great base. We will be returning!

South Penarth is the most lovely B&B we have stayed in. Beautiful decor and furnishings and lovely touches like the fire lit, complimentary sherry, home made biscuits, luxurious towels and spacious rooms. Do not hesitate to book a night or 3, you will not be disappointed!

We stayed here for 4 days in Jan 2013 and we were delighted. Judy made us so welcome and provided all those extra little touches; thick soft towels, home made biscuits in our room with unlimited various hot drinks and a proper kettle.
We are a mature couple and we found the bed so comfortable and the room spacious with a large flat sceen television. The house is placed in a good area for exploring Cornwall or walking into Truro. We would certainly stay there again

This B & B was was more like the best boutique hotel. The perfect retreat, lovely rooms, peaceful, exotic gardens, with pool. Lovely home-made full english breakfast, homemade bread, biscuits and jam, if all Bed & Breakfasts were like this I would never, ever use a hotel again. Great base for exploring the area.

This beautiful B&B ticks all the boxes. Judy and Chris are charming but inobtrusive, making the most tasty breakfasts,and nothing is too much trouble. The pool looked inviting but sadly the weather prevented its use. Our room was enormous with the most divine bed ever, like sleeping in a cosy nest. After a good meal in Truro it was a steep climb back to South Penarth, but the taxi fare was exactly as Judy advised. We would stay again without hesitation, well done.

This really reasonably priced B & B was more like a boutique hotel - quiet character house, a suite of rooms, private gardens (with huge, exotic palm trees!), generous outdoor swimming pool, homemade biscuits delivered to your room, lovely full English breakfast. Maybe could have done without 'The Girl From Ipanema' playing in the background as we breakfasted both mornings, though she did add to the surreal impression that we had died and gone to heaven rather than be within a mile of Truro city centre. Only two rooms (two suites?) available - though a third on its way we understood - so better hurry to book. Though if we can't get in again after this review I will be well peeved.

Room Tip: Ask for the family suite overlooking the gardens
