The location is fantastic and the property was very well equipped. In terms of feedback my only suggestion is that for dog owners and parents of young children a gate between the property boundary and next doors garden would be a great addition, we made do with a small table from the outhouse. Reviewed by SarahJun 2022 "Absolutely lovely cottage." So clean and comfortable and the location is so peaceful. Only a few minutes walk from a very secluded, dog friendly beach and the village with pub and shop. Not far to many lovely places to visit including Kynance Cove. Would highly recommend! Reviewed by NickyApr 2022 "Perfect cottage: comfortable, warm, spotless, well equipped, 10 mins from beach for dog walks - couldn’t ask for more." (No mobile signal - a bonus! Wi-Fi & Sky excellent if need contact) Reviewed by LaviniaMar 2022 "The cottage is beautifully decorated, cosily warm and very spacious." The upstairs sitting room has the most stunning views of the sea. and the bedrooms are enormously comfortable. All in all a lovely week in a delightful location, I would recommend Penrose Cottage highly! Reviewed by MilesOct 2021 "We liked the layout of the cottage, which was very important to us as we had new parents and their 5 month old baby with them!" Reviewed by BrianSep 2021 "Lovely place, very comfortable for us as a group of 6 (parents, teenage kids + grandparents)." Helpful and friendly host made us very welcome. One point to add is the wonderful sea view from the upstairs lounge…could make more of this in the listing! Thanks for a happy and relaxing stay. Reviewed by StephenJul 2021 "The Cottage was well appointed, very clean and tidy, which is testament to the excellent work of the house keeper, Bette Swindon." The location is superb with the local secluded beach, which we had all to ourselves at times. A good location to explore many coves and chocolate box villages. Wish we'd had two weeks The only criticism is that some land owners block off some public rights of way . Reviewed by HaydnJun 2021 "This was our second stay and our little group of seven were very pleased to be back." The cottage was clean and comfortable in a wonderful location and the housekeeper very friendly and helpful. Just one small gripe- would it be possible to update the garden furniture which is plastic old and brittle, the garden is very pretty and somewhere comfy to sit would be appreciated. Reviewed by FelicityMay 2021 "The cottage was very clean, Bette was very helpful and friendly." The beds where so comfortable , the views from the living room are beautiful. We would definitely love to return again. Reviewed by TraceyApr 2021 "We thought from the details that the cottage would be closer to the village, within close walking distance, but we actually preferred to be more remote - safer - and we were closer to the beaches, so turned out even better." Reviewed by DeniseSep 2020 "Had a lovely week at Penrose Cottage." We have two secondary school aged kids who can walk a bit further now and we like to be away from the crowds but close enough to have enough to do. So Penrose was just perfect. It’s quite a large cottage for 4 people with four bedrooms (we didn’t use one of the bedrooms). The rooms are a good size. Bedrooms are all of a decent size with comfortable beds (it was hard to get the kids up in the morning!). The living room on the second level to get the sea view is especially comfortable and we spent most of our time there when in the house. The kitchen is not massive but was fine for us and is next to the dining room so they work together. There is a 10 minutes walk to the beach which we walked every day. There is next to no parking in the village so few people travel in and we had the beach almost to ourselves each day (in August). There are lovely walks from the house in either direction particularly along the coastal path. Many ice creams from Roskillys, trips to Coverack for kayaking, little cafes to stop in, rocks to climb and bbqs on the beach. We only got in our car twice in a week; once to shop at Tescos in Helston and secondly to walk the coastal path around Lizard Point. There is a garden at the back on two levels; a lower little one with a garden table and chairs, and an upper grassy area which could be used for ball games. But we didn’t use them much and there were lots of other things to do. There is off-road parking as well for one car (not sure if you could get two in?). Overall, Penrose was perfect for us and we would definitely stay again. Reviewed by PaulAug 2020 "The cottage is very spacious, well furnished and equipped." Everything you need is here. Enclosed garden great for the dogs, but also sitting out and eating al fresco. Parking facilities for the car were excellent too! 2 beaches close by and walking distance (10-15 mins) which were never over busy, even during August!! Local pubs and cafes in St Keverne area serve good food. Ideal location for away from it all with excellent coastal walks on the doorstep. Reviewed by IsabelAug 2020 "So quiet and relaxing." Beautiful views of the sea and fields from the front of the property. Spacious and well equipped. Within walking distance to a quiet beach and coastal footpath. 15 minute walk to 2 lovely village pubs, village shops and a cafe. Garden was full of flowers. Comfy beds. So peaceful sitting in the smaller, walled secluded garden by the property and the upper garden accessed by a few steps was large and backed on to farmland. Just what we needed after spending months in the house during lockdown. The only negative is the lack of mobile phone signal but the wifi signal is strong and there is a pay phone in the house that accepts incoming calls so we were not completely cut off from the world! Reviewed by LyndaJul 2020 "Just that we had a good time, weather was kind, and the cottage was warm , comfy and cosy, no complaints." Thank you Reviewed by CDec 2019 "Lovely very clean cottage." Quiet location.Jenny and her husband very friendly and helpful. Lovely touch fresh flowers in each room as well as wine and nibbles to greet us. Would certainly recomend thiscottage and hope to return again soon. Reviewed by LindaSep 2019 "Three generations enjoyed a great week at Penrose Farm Cottage." The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a great position for exploring the Lizard peninsula. We enjoyed a meal at The Three Tuns in St Keverne, as well as walking to Roskilly's for ice cream. The wonderful Godrevy Cove was a treat, we even saw a seal on our last day. Reviewed by SarahAug 2019 "Lovely cottage but could do with an update, Neighbor not happy about parking even though we were careful to stay in designated spaces." Had a wonderful holiday and would definitely use Sykes again. Cakes and wine left on the first day was much appreciated. Reviewed by DavidAug 2019 "The cottage is beautiful, the location too." We were so impressed with the welcome cakes and wine - so very thoughtful. Jenny and Pete, the housekeepers were extremely helpful, knowledgable nothing was too much trouble. They explained the walks in great detail, as we were with two sets of elderly parents , in fact one celebrated their 80th birthday whilst we were on holiday. Every room in the cottage was so homely and the kitchen was so very well equipped. I would think the cottage will certainly be on our wish list to return in the future. To summarise, Wonderful, loved it. Reviewed by MarkJun 2019 "Lovely idyllic location." Reviewed by JohnMay 2019 "This is our second visit to this cottage and it didn’t fail to live up to our expectations." Spacious with fantastic views to Godrevy Cove and the sea beyond. In a wonderfully quiet location with immediate access to fantastic walks whether along the coast, to the village of St Keverne or Roskilly duck ponds! We’ll be back Reviewed by AndrewMay 2019 "Perfect cottage in a wonderful location." Reviewed by AMar 2019 "Lovely house, with all the amenities that we could ask for." So nice to be able to walk to the beach this year, as the path was not open last year, and we saw a seal there twice. The house is well equipped and in a great location and Sykes kept us up to date with any changes to our booking in an efficient and courteous way. Reviewed by BethanyAug 2018 "A wonderful cottage very close to a secluded beach." Arrived to find flowers in every room, wine on the table and a selection of cakes. Reviewed by TracyJul 2018 "The cottage was exceptional." Lovely welcoming pack and milk in the fridge. Seemed to have everything one could need and beautifully furnished. Reviewed by JohnJun 2018 "The cottage is brilliant, the location is fabulous, the only niggle was that Godrevy Cove was inaccessible the week we were there, and will be so until August 2018, but other than that, it was fantastic waking up to see boats in the cove, and listening to the sea." Reviewed by DianeJun 2018 "Third time at Penrose farm cottage and it remains a family favourite." The upgrades since our last visit are lovely,the kitchen and living room in particular look great. Thankyou and hope to be back next year! Reviewed by SadieApr 2018 "A very warm welcome from the neighbours Mick & Lynn and with lots of tips of what to see and do." Lovely quiet place.
