Pencubitt always delivers good, friendly service in a lovely setting with comfortable rooms and excellent facilities. I always stay here when I am in Cornwall on business and have brought my family to stay here when visiting the area on holiday.

Room Tip: Talk to Pat about your requirements.

Another enjoyable stay at Pencubitt. Excellent large, clean and well equipped rooms in a beautiful grand house. A delightful lounge, and bar, if you have time - which sadly we didn't. Convenient access without miles of "Cornish lanes". Good fill-up breakfast, well prepared with obviously decent ingredients and plenty of choice of fresh fruit, etc. Friendly & helpful host. We booked our next visit before leaving.

Service outstanding. Breakfast stunning - local produce perfectly cooked. Location as peaceful as one could wish for. The house - loved it - we love Victorian architecture. The hosts were extremely helpful. We could not have asked for more

This is a delightful rural guest house with all the comforts of home.The setting is tranquil, yet within walking distance of Liskeard station, making it easy for non-drivers to get around. Breakfast was great with plenty of healthy options such as fresh fruit and porridge. Hosts Julie and Pat were very welcoming and attentive. I experienced a minor "glitch" as the shower in my room was faulty. However, this was dealt with promptly and efficiently. The lounge area is a relaxing place, with plenty of reading material if required. There is also a well stocked bar. Will definitely be returning very soon - didn't really want to leave.

I have stayed in many guest houses, but 'Pencubbit' has to be the best yet! Patrick was very welcoming and personable, and nothing was too much trouble. The whole place is spotlessly clean enough to eat your dinner off the floor, should the fancy take you. Speaking of which, we pre-ordered dinner for our first night, and the quality and presentation of the food, coupled with the ambience was top notch!! Cooked by Patrick's fair hand. The cooked breakfast was also lovely, with a good choice of healthier options.

The guest house is situated in lovely grounds, with stunning views. Believe me pictures do not do it justice! Although tucked away down a country lane, it is just a stone's throw from Liskeard station. So although set in a quiet location, civilization is within reach.

The house is grand, whilst being tastefully furnished with a modern touch. It has a very homely feel. I hope to return here, and would not hesitate to recommend. It is the epitome of how any good hotel should be run.

Patrick & Julie were exceptional hosts & extended a very warm welcome. Well maintained, comfortable & elegant public areas offering a well stocked and reasonably priced bar in relaxing guest lounge.
Room well appointed with fabulous views. Breakfast was excellent in a convivial dining room. We shall certainly return!

Room Tip: All rooms are superb and individual. Patrick always pleased to advise.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely Country House style B&B in a beautiful setting.
The welcome was warm & we were pleased to see the size of the large double room with a lovely view across the neighbouring fields and their lovely gardens.
We received a good recommendation for dinner in a nearby restaurant.
Breakfast was very good with a wide choice.
We would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area.
