This property is now unoccupied and for sale so is not currently operating as a B and B. If it reopens it is a great location to stay in the village with free parking opposite. I would recommend Any of the other B and B's in the village as a viable alternative.

Sue and Kev could not have been better hosts, they even cooked sausage sandwiches for members of my family while they waited for their caravan in the nearby park. Cannot wait to go back next year, rooms are perfect, homely and have everything you could possibly need! 11/10 Thank you both

My daughter Scarlett and I were made to feel very welcome by Kev and Sue, who made this our home from home for 3 days. Superb accommodation / location / food. No need for lunch after a breakfast like Sue makes !! Can't wait to come back next year if we're down this way. No brainer !

The Old Post Office is in an ideal situation in the pretty village of Pentewan. Our hosts were extremely welcoming. The quality & variety of breakfast was superb & set us up for the rest of the day. Nothing was too much trouble.

A small but well appointed bed and breakfast boarding house. Owned by a very friendly couple, and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast is of the highest quality. For value for money it cannot be beaten.

I stayed at The Old Post Office for 5 nights form the 20th June 2013, and was very comfortable. The house is very clean, quiet ( a big bonus for me - and thank you to all the family for their consideratness).
