    “We really enjoyed Penwarne Lodge again, we stayed the same time last year and it was perfect and so we wanted to re-create that.”

    Well we did so two fold, the house was so warm, a few changes made to make things more easier for us and we had all the equipment to hand that we needed. Having the Woodburner was perfect as we were able to have the fire going on a couple of evenings but in reality that wasn't needed for the heat as the house was plenty warm enough. ...

    Well we did so two fold, the house was so warm, a few changes made to make things more easier for us and we had all the equipment to hand that we needed. Having the Woodburner was perfect as we were able to have the fire going on a couple of evenings but in reality that wasn't needed for the heat as the house was plenty warm enough. Perfect walks from the house that we took advantage of and the dog really enjoyed those, as well as sniffing her way around every inch of the garden and squirrel spotting! We cooked a couple of evenings and all the equipment was available for us. Only one comment that some of the knives could have been sharper but then I'm spoiled at home with really sharp knives. Lovely nights undisturbed sleep, lovely to be able to hear the owls hooting in the distance. We're looking forward to returning to Penwarne, perhaps even in the summer so that we can enjoy everything in the nice weather!

The property

Surrounded by almost an acre of tranquil woodland gardens within the grounds of the Penwarne Estate on the outskirts of Mawnan Smith, this cottage offers a naturally beautiful setting for a truly relaxing break and is conveniently located just a short distance from a spectacular coastline; golden beaches at Maenporth, Swanpool and Gllyngvase and Trebah Gardens and National Trust owned Glendurgan Gardens.

Just to the west is the enduringly popular Helford River, with its serene landscape, tree shrouded tidal creeks and waterside pubs, which make it intriguing to explore on foot or on water by hiring a self-drive motor/rowing boat.

Falmouth is within a 10 minute drive and is an excellent location for all ages with its fabulous choice of shops, restaurants, old inns, a golf course and the National Maritime Museum.

Passenger ferries operate scenic harbour crossings from here to Flushing and St Mawes and upriver to Truro.

Highly recommended in the 'Good Gardens Guide', the Penwarne Estate (shared only with the owner's and neighbouring groundsman's residence) extends over 12 acres of sub-tropical gardens, which include one of the county's largest collections of Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias.

Not usually open to the public, guests staying at Penwarne Lodge can by special arrangement enjoy a guided tour of the garden.

There is an irresistible romance attached to Penwarne Lodge, a detached white-washed double fronted cottage with a country-style interior, wood burning stove, plump settees, comfortable mattresses and soft furnishings made in vintage floral fabrics.

The two spacious bedrooms have scenic views over the garden and countryside.

The master bedroom is furnished with a super king bed and the second bedroom can be presented as a double or twin (although it is not a zip and link).

Parking for two cars.
