I found this B & B on booking.com. This house is full of character, a reasonable price and located conveniently. It was difficult to find as the address on the site is not the street that you drive into to park. A call to the owners set me on the right path. It would be helpful to have the parking... More

Thank you for your comments. We do re-confirm all bookings which include directions on how to find us and park. Unfortunately not everybody reads these confirmations. The room in question (Room 3) was booked for 2 people only (not a family) and is one of our largest kingsize doubles. There is plenty of room for 2 people and luggage. We... More

My family recently visited us in Lostwithiel and stayed at Penrose B&B. They very much enjoyed their stay. My parents had what's probably the best room - with an elevated view over the town. They loved the breakfast and hospitality of their wonderful hosts.

Greeted on arrival by Chris & Heidi, who made our dog feel at home straightaway, and then explained the house, the breakfast routines and the locality. We had a big, comfortable room at the top of the house (room 7), extra seating, an eclectic mix of furniture and a small desk in the window with a view over the town.... More

Wonderful warm welcome on arrival and Chris even carried our heavy bags to our room - which is unheard of in most B&B's! Rooms were immaculate and very spacious and the beds were very comfortable.
