Penlowen house is tucked in a quite neighourhood with spectacular sea view. The kids loved playing in the garden and watching the little rabbits. The house is very close to the beach and to town. Very close to a scenic coastal root. Bare in mind good walking shoes will be needed. The house is very well equipped, clean and cosy....

A great welcome. The property is very comfortable, modern and and pristine. Quiet location with space to park. Sea views from the main living area and the large garden. Short walk to Polperro village centre and harbour down lanes and though woods. Waking distance to Talland Bay. We had a very enjoyable week.

The sea views from the lounge windows are spectacular and it was hard...

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the spectacular South Cornwall Coast in a largely unspoilt area of the South West, Penlowen is an ideal location to access the coastal path and an abundance of coves and beaches. The closest beach is Talland Bay, just a short walk away. The cove is steeped in history and, in the past, was frequently used by smugglers. The unspoilt cove remains a hidden treasure, and is ideal for snorkeling, swimming or relaxing on the beach. The beach cafe also hires kayaks and provides a selection of home-baked food.<BR><BR>After a ten minute walk down the hill you will reach the historic and picturesque village of Polperro. The quaint fishing village has narrow streets and whitewashed cottages. There are plenty of coffee houses, restaurants and pubs where you can sample t... more
