Penlowen (run by myself, a marine biologist and my musician husband) provides affordable eco-friendly holiday accommodation for people who wish to enjoy Cornwall's coastline and gorgeous oldy-worldy village of Polperro. The recently renonvated, boutique style living accommodation is light airy with new beds, quality bed linen, fresh flowers and a locally sourced cream tea on arrival. As we are at the top of the hill, we have wonderful views of the coastline. Through the large patio door in the upstairs living room you can enjoy watching the changes and moods of the water all day long. Unlike most properties in the village, who are unable to offer parking outside the properties, Penlowen is easily accessible by car with space in our gated courtyard for two cars. The lounge has a bookshelf well stocked with books and things to do and there is a wall hanging wood burner for that extra cosy feel. The TV has SKY and connects to a DVD or VHS and there is a library in the main house with a good variety of DVDs. WiFi is also available. The accommodation is reverse-designed and has the advantage of an upstairs loo as well as a downstairs shower room. There is access to a large garden with a dining area and an adventure playground for the under 10s. If you wish, it is just 5 mins walk to the cliff path where you can sit on the bench to enjoy the view before walking down into Polperro or Talland.
Why not indulge in the culinary treats of coastal restaurants such as The View at Whitsand Bay, Fifteen at Watergate Bay or Rick Stein's seafood restaurant in Padstow? We value hospitality and personal touches are important to us. Why not order a selection of local organic produce to be delivered before you arrive? If you fancy indulging yourself, why not book an aromatherapy massage or a facial in advance? We can also offer guided rocky shore activities as well as access to the music room.

The Cornwall region
South Cornwall, a secluded and beautiful part of the West Country, is the perfect retreat at any time of year. South Cornwall holidays offer a true escape, the area’s isolated stretches of coastline are strewn with charming whitewashed villages. Visitors to Cornwall will be treated to dramatic scenery, from wooded valleys to jagged cliffs.
Penlowen is in an ideal location for visiting famous attractions, the Eden Project is only a 30 minute drive away and Falmouth, the home to the National Maritime Museum, is only an hour away. The Tate in St.Ives, LandsEnd or St.Michaels Mount can all be reached within one and a half hours. Closer to home, the famous Monkey Sanctuary is only a short drive and also has a fantastic restaurant with home cooked food.
If you fancy some exercise then make the most of the coastal path or inland walks on Bodmin Moor or Dartmoor. There are several golf clubs nearby with St.Mellion only 45mins away. There is horse riding and watersports within a 30 minute drive.
The nearest cities are Plymouth and Truro where you will find a great choice of shops and nightlife as well as ice skating, ski centre, bowling and cinemas.
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.
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 the local fish and home cooked food. Whilst in Polperro, why not visit the museum, art galleries and model village or take a fishing trip or a boat trip to Looe or Fowey?
