  • "Fabulous property, spotlessly clean, with everything you need to hand."

    Real cosy feel to the house. Close to all amenities and easy to get to other places in Cornwall. We had a fab time and would definitely recommend this home for a holiday. Looking forward to hopefully staying here again in the future.

    Hi Jackie, thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I’m so glad you’ve had a good stay and you’re welcome back at any time! Best wishes Ben Property Owner

  • "Excellent stay."

    Penang served our purposes well. We were hiking in the area while also working, and with no car, we appreciated the proximity to buses and trains, as well as lots of meal options ... even a Tesco Express over the road. The Wi-Fi worked well with both of us working and holding virtual meetings, and the house was very comfortable and well suited for two people working. Lots of space (even more than we had anticipated in the description). Everything we needed in the kitchen. Unfortunately, given the time of year, we did not get to make use of the outdoor amenities or the garden room, so can't really comment on them. However, we did enjoy being able to have a fire on a couple of chilly nights. Despite the proximity to the road, the house's elevation, plantings and good windows meant that we were not at all disturbed by any noise when we were inside.

    Hi Angela, Thank you so much for your kind and detailed feedback I’m glad you had a good stay in Cornwall. You’re welcome back at any time! Best wishes Ben Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay!"

    Penang is a truly lovely property, with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. A real feeling of luxury, peace, space and light, whilst also being warm and cosy. The facilities, decor, bedding, towels and garden are all beautiful and very well thought out. We would highly recommend a stay here. We were visiting the Eden Project and Heligan, so perfectly located for this. The local beaches are wonderful. We were a mixed bunch of adults, teens and our old Labrador, and we all felt very at-home and had a wonderful stay.

    Thank you so much for staying at Penang and for the wonderful and kind review. I’m thrilled you had a lovely time, you’re most welcome to come back anytime! Best wishes Ben Property Owner

When mealtimes call, head over to the spacious kitchen/diner, a light and airy room with plenty of amenities to cater to your culinary needs, and a space for guests to enjoy a hearty meal together.

As the evening wears on, freshen up in a contemporary ground-floor shower room or enjoy a soak in the bathtub, before settling into either a ground-floor double, a second double, a twin or a single, each with storage for your belongings.

With palm trees, pretty mature shrubs, a raised lawn space and a patio with a barbecue, the garden is the ideal spot for alfresco dining, and guests can enjoy a tipple in the evening sunshine at the raised decking area whilst reflecting on their day.

In the garden there is also the added bonus of a gym with a handy cloakroom.

St Austell is a delightful Cornish town with a variety of amenities and attractions for guests to enjoy, including riverside walks, and a selection of tasty eateries, pubs, and convenience stores for all of your holiday essentials.

For a day at the seaside, you will be spoilt for choice by the lovely beaches close by, including the sandy Duporth Beach, the picturesque Porthpean Beach, Carlyon Bay and Vault Beach.
