Even rave reviews from friends had still not captured the extraordinary experience we revelled in at Pencarrow. Attention to detail on every level of our experience - you feel like your room is a luxury haven just for you, with beautiful pottery, wall hangings and furnishings carefully selected for each room. Our hosts were an exhuberant loving couple who genuinely cared about enriching our whole experience, ensuring it was memorable and as pampered as possible. After a daylong river cruise in pouring rain and a two hour drive, we arrived late, tired and hanging for a warm shower - greeted by champagne and goodies waiting in our room, a massive bathroom gleaming with spotless fittings, beautifully appointed and with two basins and even with underfloor heating. Oh how snug! You nominate what time you want breakfast in the intimate dining room. Settings there are themed each day and fresh baking is done each morning in the kitchen so that guests arrived to delicious goodies piled in the centre of the table. Mind you those breakfasts are incredible, with the multiple courses varied each morning, but always the minimum of a range of juices, cereals, fresh sliced fruit, a huge plate of hot breakfast, then flapjacks and don't forget that fresh baking in the table centre. Sigh ... What a way to go! I unreservedly recommend Pencarrow. Their guest book speaks for itself - people from all over the world keep coming back ... England, Australia and USA were all represented just while we were there.
