Polperro, Cornwall, England
Penlowen (run by myself, a marine biologist and my musician husband) provides affordable eco-friendly holiday accommodation for people who wish to enjoy Cornwall's coastline and gorgeous oldy-worldy village of Polperro. The recently renovated, boutique style living accommodation is light airy with sea views, new beds, quality bed linen, fresh flowers and a locally sourced cream tea on arrival. We provide organic towels and eco friendly organic and fairly traded products and we can provide organic vegetable boxes (subject to order). We have wonderful views of the coastline and through the large patio door in the upstairs living room you can enjoy watching the changes and moods of the water all day long. Unlike most properties in the village, who are unable to offer parking outside the properties, Penlowen is easily accessible by... Read more

Just returned from a lovely trip to Cornwall. Penlowen is located well for visiting Polperro and the surrounding area. Private parking on driveway. Walking distance to the village and to coastal paths. Very steep hill to go down to the village but you get used to it! Scones with jam and clotted cream upon arrival and a jug of milk...

We arrived late after a long bad journey from North Wales. Having warned Susan, she lit the log burner and was waiting to direct us in on a dark misty evening. We then went and listened to Colin playing Jazz at a local pub.Came home to scones, jam and scones left by Sue. Great location with plenty of space Thoroughly...

What a lovely Cornish gem! We spent a long weekend at Penlowen this January and loved it’s cosy atmosphere. It is just a short (and beautiful) walk along the coastal path to the village of Polperro and just a 10 minute drive to Looe. It’s location is very peaceful and it’s views are amazing. We really enjoyed our stay.

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the spectacular South Cornwall Coast in a largely unspoilt area of the South West, Penlowen is an ideal location to access the coastal path and an abundance of coves and beaches. The closest beach is Talland Bay, just a short walk away. The cove is steeped in history and, in the past, was frequently used by smugglers. The unspoilt cove remains a hidden treasure, and is ideal for snorkeling, swimming or relaxing on the beach. The beach cafe also hires kayaks and provides a selection of home-baked food.

After a ten minute walk down the hill you will reach the historic and picturesque village of Polperro. The quaint fishing village has narrow streets and whitewashed cottages. There are plenty of coffee houses, restaurants and pubs where you can sample the local fish and...
