Penarvon House All 8 of us agreed it was luxury we didn't expect, it's well worth every penny we paid.. I always look for separate ensuites so we have our own privacy and it not only supplied us with our privacy there was a choice of Bath and shower with every bedroom. Dog friendly which I always look for and a massive garden, which my little yorkie, Reggie enjoyed very much. This is what sets Penarvon House separate from the rest, the VERY SPECIAL PANORAMIC VIEWS with yaghts trees houses. ( we didn't go out for the first 3 days because we didn't feel we had to ). My husband, two brothers and sister made good use of the snooker table, we all went down to the games room to watch, we had a really good laugh. It was sad when we had to leave all that behind.

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.

We had a lovely stay the house was amazing, it could have been cleaner on arrival but no big deal, on arrival the heating was not working but fixed when we called the number for someone to help.. The rubbish was not taken on Wednesday morning which was quite stressful as we left a day early and we were not sure what to do. The house keeper was very helpful. Would definitely recommend, it’s a really lovely place with amazing views.

Gorgeous house in an idyllic setting.. A family home rented out so full of everything you might need. The view from the comfortable bed upstairs is perfect. We rented a boat from Sail away and spent time exploring, fishing and swimming, hardly used the car. The little shop in Helford sells the most delicious bread, as well as wine, cheese and ice cream. Who needs more.

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.

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. And I mean totally fabulous... why go anywhere else when Cornwall is sunny! 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.

It's a short walk into the village, and also to the ferry for Helford Passage. Frenchmans Creek is also a short walk away. Helford village itself with it's little shop and a delightful cafe (Holy Mackerel) is charming. To be fair, Helford, and particularly Orchard Lane, is a little bit of a challenge for drivers 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! I would recommend hiring a boat (if you're not a sailor) from Sailaway - they operate from the jetty by the pedestrian ferry, but make sure you ring to book in advance. It was a really fun day, and even the wobbly mother-in-law managed it. Another recommendation is the New Yard restaurant at Trelowarren... locally sourced ingredients in season - delicious. 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. Lovely as it is to have fabulous east facing views from the two main bedrooms, they also get a LOT of light through in the early morning. If it were my property I would ensure that the blind in the master bedroom and the curtains in the lower bedroom were effective at blocking the light. The fact that we found a sleep mask downstairs indicates that others have had the same issue. 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.

Yes for the more allergic among us there was a lot of feathers around the house in bedrooms and the lounge furniture and they did suffer somewhat , I think this should be made aware on the web site .. Also the roads leading to the property are very narrow and winding , not made clear till full payment is made . Despite the above we did have a good week there the house is great for a large group, we went with 3 generations and suited quite well.

We had a fab time.. The house is beautiful and the setting perfect. Just one minor annoyance. The house only had minimal cleaning materials, very little loo roll, no bin bags. I take renting cottages seriously and want to leave it as I find it. With 9 people staying you need to clean up. We had to drive to Helston to buy absolute essentials which the cost of renting really ought to cover. If I hadn't I couldn't have met the requests to leave it tidy. Quite annoying really!

The house was as described; luxurious and excellent in every respect. The availability of wood for the fire was appreciated as was the WiFi.

The rooms were nice and big, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Even with 8 of us there, we didn't feel crowded. The views and gardens were superb. A splendid property and we would love to return.

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!
