Penlowen (run by myself, a marine biologist and my musician husband) provides affordable eco-friendly holiday accommodation for people who wish to enjoy Cornwall's coastline and gorgeous oldy-worldy village of Polperro.
We value hospitality and personal touches are important to us. The living accommodation is light airy with organic bed sheets, fresh flowers and a locally sourced cream tea on arrival. As we are at the top of the hill, we have wonderful views of the coastline. The accommodation is upside down with the living room, master bedroom with king sized bed, loo and kitchen on the first floor. Through the large patio door in the upstairs living room you can enjoy watching the changes and moods of the water all day long. Downstairs is the shower room and bedroom with two single beds. Penlowen is easily accessible by car with space in our gated courtyard for two cars. This is a rarity in Polperro as many holiday cottages in the village can only offer parking in the car park and not immediately outside the property. The lounge has a bookshelf well stocked with books and things to do and there is a wall hanging wood burner for that extra cosy feel. The TV has SKY and connects to a DVD. WiFi is also available.
Disponible para huéspedes
There is access to a large garden with a dining area and an adventure playground for the under 10s. If you wish, it is just 5 mins walk to the cliff path where you can sit on the bench to enjoy the view before walking another 10 minutes down into Polperro or Talland.
Atención a los huéspedes
As we live next door we are available to answer questions and provide local knowledge. We are also available to chat if visitors would like to learn to speak English more fluently.

Why not indulge in the culinary treats of coastal restaurants such as The View at Whitsand Bay, Fifteen at Watergate Bay or Rick Stein's seafood restaurant in Padstow? or order a selection of local organic produce to be delivered before you arrive? If you fancy indulging yourself, why not book an aromatherapy massage or a facial in advance? We can also offer guided rocky shore activities, as well as access to the music room. If you fancy getting out on the water then there are boat trips from Polperro and watersports and snorkeling in Talland and Looe.
I am a biologist and primary school teacher. I volunteer for a local marine group running activities to engage schools and the general public in marine awareness. Living in a coastal village allows me to send time doing what I love, walking the coastline, snorkelling in the sea and sitting in cafes. I live with my husband, a musician and teacher, and my two teenage children.
