See what our guests say about their holidays at Pentonwarra


We’ve been to Cornwall several years running as a family but never stayed anywhere IN THE WORLD quite like Pentonwarra! We’ve rockpooled, body boarded at Trevone Bay, taken surfing lessons at Harlyn Bay, run 16k to Padstow along the coastal path, lowered our lunch on a pulley/bucket to the beach below and more and more and more! We have already re-booked for next Easter.

Had a fab stay at Pentonwarra. Great house, cosy, with views to die for! Almost didn’t want to leave it to go anywhere, and enjoyed coming back. Great place, we will return.

Thank you so much — lovely cosy house with beautiful views of the beach and the sea. Enjoyed being so close to the beach and going in the sea. We all had a lovely time and would all love to come again. Thank you Pentonwarra.

After having arrived we quickly settled into a place which is rapidly becoming a happy place for us all. With short days came the opportunity to spend mor time in the comforting and cosy Pentonwarra. Overall despite dubious weather another stay at this beautiful place was thoroughly enjoyed.

Thank you so much! Beautiful location, exceedingly warm and snug, very well equipped and above all else highly atmospheric — never stayed in a house so close to the sea! Very special.

Thank you! It was as special as we’d always hoped. We’ll be back!

It just becomes better and better.

Our second time at Pentonwarra. Another fabulous stay in this magical location. Really enjoyed our five-mile walk to Padstow—fantastic views! Relaxing in the sunshine on the terrace is the most Zen way to spend a long weekend.

What a great week with excellent weather every day. Views as ever are breathtaking.
— May 2016
A beautiful, peaceful place, where watching the changing sea makes you forget time. Being sent to sleep listening to the rhythms and sound of waves, seeing the amazing stars at night and being able to walk the coast from the door—what more could you ask for!
— April 2016
Pentonwarra is an amazing and stunning property. We had spectacular weather all week and watched some rather impressive sunsets both from the balcony over the beach and from the fort-like balcony just off the garden. Thank you for a lovely week—we hope to return soon.

Pentonwarra provided a perfect place for Spring Break. The cottage comfortable (4 adults, 2 children) and the location fabulous. The proximity to the beaches as well as to other sights in Cornwall were ideal. All 3 generations of the family thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are already planning for the next trip back!
— March 2016
Our fifth time and oh what a wonderful time shared with an almost grown up family. Surf was up, weather was great, and the wonderful deep bath at the end of the day. Thank you again.
— February 2016
Pentonwarra is rapidly becoming our family “happy place”—such a gorgeous house, in a perfect location. It was as lovely in winter (for New Year), complete with storms outside, as it was for a very sunny spring week last year. The house warms up really quickly and was very cosy and worked well even at full capacity (4 adults and 4 children including one teenager who loves the cabin room “cave”). With suitable clothing, the beaches and coastal paths are as enjoyable in winter as in summer—highly recommended.

Well, the only problem with Pentonwarra is going to be trying to leave. We’ve had an incredible few days of sunshine and have enjoyed walking, sleeping, painting, shopping in Padstow, knitting, cooking... and of course Cornish pasties and cream teas and fish and chips. What a treat to have a piano, and so many places to sit and ponder, inside and out... we really must try again to leave...
— October 2015
We have loved it! Everything! Thank you so much.
— November 2015
The website description and photos—excellent as they are—don’t begin to do this extraordinary property justice. Being there in the flesh is something else. Unbelievable sea views. Spectacular seclusion. Quirky in the extreme - and all modern conveniences. Can’t wait to come back.
— May 2015
We were amazed at the beauty of Pentonwarra, the two beaches either side, and the convenient distance to Padstow where we spent lots of our time. Thank you so much for the perfect stay.
— April 2015
An amazing month. Some Caribbean weather and a fantastic time with lots of visiting friends. We’ll be back—to learn to surf!
— August 2014
A wonderful week again. Wonderful weather, 14th year running—must be 18 visits! Thanks so much!

What a fantastic house in a fantastic location. We had 5 beautiful days here so feel very privileged.

Honeymoon at Pentonwarra was the best decision ever! We married in secret without notifying anybody and went here afterwards. Very lovely place in all cases: suh, rain, storm! We will come back!
— May 2014
This is my fourth time I’ve been here. I had a wonderful time. I hope we come back soon... We went in the sea nearly every day. The week went so quickly. Age seven.
— May 2014
Lovely Easter break in amazing location—as good as the Caribbean when the sun is out!
— April 2014
We have been visiting this coast annually since we were children and have so many treasured memories of this area, but what an absolute privilege to have discovered this special place. Thank you, Pentonwarra, for a spectacular week. We hope to be back again soon!

We had a great week here at Pentonwarra! We will definitely come back here. Great swell for boogie-boarding, amazing rock pools and beautiful location between both beaches! We did not ever need to leave Trevone once!

We had a wonderful time (too short) at Pentonwarra. I have been visiting Trevone since I was seven years old, and now my kids can experience this wonderful place. Many thanks.

The location of Pentonwarra is simply breathtaking. The 3 generations of this family had a wonderful time enjoying all that is on offer—sandy beach, rock pools, cliff walks, seafood, and pubs!
