If you are looking for a weekend break or longer would highly recommend. Trethorne golf club a very welcoming club and great course is just 10 minutes away and the market town of Tavistock is only 30 minutes away if you are looking for a place in North Cornwall you won't go wrong booking Penlaurel.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Cottage was clean and comfortable. The hot tub was really relaxing. The location was good. My only complaints were the hoover and dryer did not work very well. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

    We are very sorry to hear about the hoover - we have now replaced this with a brand new Shark cleaner. The dryer also just needed a good filter clean which has now been completed. Property Owner

The hot tub was fabulous and the cooker was brilliant. we ended up spending most of our time in the snug by the kitchen because the children would play on the PlayStation and we would go out to the hot tub. We will definitely be back!

    It has absolutely everything you need, to make an enjoyable stay. The hot tub is very nice and in an enclosed veranda It looks out to the most beautiful garden, I have ever seen! Inside the cottage, my favourite room is the front room, the decor, very much to my taste and the ambiance is just so relaxing!!! The study area, perfect for reading the odd book or playing a board game (not that we used this room, to be honest.) The dining room, very spacious and perfect to host everyone for a family meal!! The kitchen and utility room, again, very well catered for and very much to my taste! Out of all the places I have stayed, I have never felt so at home and I really mean that. There is a cosy little hideaway, which lets in lots of sun or perfect for listening to the rain too!!! It also has a PS4 for any of those gamers out there....... There are three very large bedrooms, all with I think, king size beds. One bedroom has ensuite and there is a family bathroom for the other two bedrooms, the bath is to die for! Again, all rooms decorated and furnished with such style. The bear theme around the house really does make this cottage and the bear at the top of the stairs is simply beautiful. I love this house and will be back, just not sure when, with all the madness in the world at the moment! Thank you very much for a lovely stay and for the Presecco and chocolates, what a lovely touch!

    It was a beautiful house, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. I could only say wonderful things about our stay so would definately recommend it. The owners were very friendly. The only thing I would suggest is that a mirror be installed opposite the drive to make it easier on leaving the property.

    Unfortunately the weather was against us and we were not able to enjoy the full benefits of the extensive gardens, the hot tub or the barbecue. We will consider going back to this property again, and hope for better weather. My only complaint would be that turning into and leaving the property towards Launceston is a bit tricky, and would suggest a mirror on the opposite side of the road to help.
