Reviews of Penarvon House
"We have just come back from a weeks family holiday....us, our two grown up children, their partners & my father in law. We were really pleased to all have lovely ensuite bedrooms & plenty of living & entertaining space. The views & location were great. Loads of long walks from our doorstep. Nice to get a phone call from Jaynee (hope I've got the name right) to check everything was ok. Also a lovely big enclosed garden which was great for our dog."

"There is no doubt that Penarvon House is a near perfect setting for a holiday. Two bedrooms, the main living space and the kitchen have fabulous views across the Helford. This was a week-long break for us, our adult children, plus one partner and the mother-in-law, plus two dogs. Oh, and the World Cup was on, so a good space to watch the England games was a must. Sounds stressful, but this was a perfect rental for the group. The living space is huge, with plenty of room for the footie fans at one end, and others to play cards and games etc at the other end... and that's ignoring the Games Room downstairs. The dogs were well enclosed within the garden, and there were some lovely walks nearby, we'd have done more, but our older dog finds hills a bit tough these days. It's a short walk into the village, and also to the ferry for Helford Passage. Frenchmans Creek is also a short walk away. To be fair, Helford, and particularly Orchard Lane, is a little bit of a challenge for people unused to the tiniest of Cornish lanes, but there's also a sense of delight to have grass from the hedgerows brushing both sides of the car! Penarvon House is very much the upper end of the rental market, hence the slight niggles, I'm afraid. Towels were included, but we were only left with the bare minimum number, and there weren't any hand towels left for the ground floor toilet, the utility room or the kitchen; and we were left with no tea-towels at all. It felt a bit odd to make do with a large bath sheet instead. The worst problem though, I felt, was the difficulty we had making the toilet in the master ensuite flush - you had to keep pressing and pressing the button over and over again to get it to respond. It wasn't electric, but it was extremely reluctant. I also think the cracked floor tiles throughout the property slightly spoil the luxury edge. Sorry to have the niggles, but overall we had a lovely and very relaxing week."

"What a treat to be able to spend a few days at this wonderful large house! The owners have taken so much trouble to make it comfortable and homely. It is the perfect spot for relaxing in front of the wood fire on a winter's evening, and I am sure that in the summertime, the garden provides a lovely place to sit out for a meal, while children can play on the large lawn. The directions given to us were easy to follow, and the location is fantastic, with far-reaching views and a large well-kept garden. There is so much to do in the area. Walks can start directly from the house, so you don't need to use the car. The village shop is a short walk down the hill, not 5 minutes away, where there is also a good pub. I would recommend this house as a holiday destination for any group - an extended family or a group of friends. Thank you so much for letting us share your secret!"
