  • “The property was beautifully-prepared when we arrived.”

    However, we have a few niggles with the facilities, which is a pity:- Only 1 toilet roll in each of the two bathrooms to supply three of us for the week. Only one towel each (plus a small hand towel in each bathroom.) No small saucepan suitable for heating milk or boiling an egg. The potato peeler was blunt and virtually unusable. Similarly, the can-opener was completely useless. All the wine glasses were different sizes. The only baking tray was rusty. It was a dark art getting the shower ...

    However, we have a few niggles with the facilities, which is a pity:- Only 1 toilet roll in each of the two bathrooms to supply three of us for the week. Only one towel each (plus a small hand towel in each bathroom.) No small saucepan suitable for heating milk or boiling an egg. The potato peeler was blunt and virtually unusable. Similarly, the can-opener was completely useless. All the wine glasses were different sizes. The only baking tray was rusty. It was a dark art getting the shower to run hot and took us two days to master! Sorry to sound so negative about such apparently trivial things but this property is large, comfortable and expensive to rent so every detail should be right!

About the location

PENRYN

Falmouth 1 mile; Truro 9 miles.

One of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, the pretty port of Penryn boasts a wealth of historic architecture and harbour heritage with attractive granite buildings steeply sloping along the cobbled streets down to the sea. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town, along with a museum offering free entry, and the tranquil Enys Gardens on the outskirts of the town, providing a range of grounds and a peaceful haven. Further along the Penryn River, just one mile towards the sea you’ll find the famous seaport of Falmouth, with a host of things to keep you entertained including harbour-side pubs and eateries offering spectacular views, stunning Blue Flag beaches and a bustling town centre. Visit the National Maritime Museum for a taste of Cornwall’s sea-faring history, or the fine Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle, superb set gazing out to sea. You don’t have to venture far from Penryn to discover Cornwall’s many sights, delights and stunning coastline, and this is the perfect character base from which to see it all.
