Chris & Heidi welcome you to Penrose, their beautiful AA 4 Stars Gold Award rated Victorian home, that exudes a homely atmosphere with a hint of heritage. Be prepared to be spoilt when you book as Chris & Heidi pride themselves on hospitality and the kind of finishing touches that make a visit memorable.

All the bedrooms have TV, Freeview, DVD/CD player, hairdryer, bathrobes, beverage tray and toiletries. The ensuites showers plus fresh towels, face cloths, shampoo/conditioner and shower gel. There is free Wifi throughout the house. There is also a little snug come guest lounge. Lostwithiel is the antiques and slow food capital of Cornwall and has many pubs and restaurants within a 5/10 minute walk. The Eden Project is only a 10-minute drive, so are the local beaches.

Yes, dogs are allowed in the bedrooms, however, the dining room is out of bounds at breakfast. You dog can be left in your bedroom or in your car, whichever is best for you. Hope this helps - Chris and Heidi: Proprietors
