The hosts, Linda and Graham, couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.

My wife and I stayed for three nights, and Graham and Linda could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Room was very spacious, clean, comfortable and well equiped, and the breakfast superb, in a very relaxed environment. The bathroom was very well appointed, clean and with a great view. We will be back next time we go to Devon....

Quite possibly felt more at home here than our actual homes! Simply couldnt ask for better location, standard of service, cleanliness or quality of stay. Graham and co were tremendous.

Linda and Graham excellent hosts, nothing too much trouble. The breakfast was fabulous and plenty of it, served hot and to your needs. Homemade jam and marmalade and locally sourced food ensure that quality is excellent, we did not get the chance to try one of Linda's cream teas but we will try and do so next time! The rooms...

From the moment that we arrived at Penkenna Linda and Graham's warm welcome ensured that our stay was a memorable one. Our rooms were excellent, superbly decorated, comfortable, clean and every facility provided for. Our breakfasts were certainly not occasions to...

This is such a hidden charm in Westward Ho! . We have been visitinfg family for years and have not been able to find anything of this standard. Linda is friendly, so accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble.. The views are spectacular. There is parking and the location is perfect. Will without doubt be staying there on my future visits.
