Penpethy Holiday Cottages is your home away from home!

About Us        


Relaxed and friendly rural holiday cottages, an ideal base to explore the stunning Cornwall scenery and enjoy a peaceful and restful holiday.

The sandy beach of Trebarwith Strand are a few minutes drive away and is ideal for swimmers, surfers or just lazing in the sun. (Trebarwith is also dog friendly all year)

Group/ large family bookings welcome, can sleep 16 over the four cottages, giving privacy to different age groups or just your own front door, bathroom and kitchen for a relaxing experience. 

I am happy to accept and put away a supermarket delivery for your cottage by prior arrangement.

Well behaved dogs are very welcome but must not be left alone in the cottages. Sorry no puppies.

“Smashing place to stay!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday for a stay in April 2015NEW

We travel to Cornwall a lot, normally around Watergate Bay if you have seen my other reviews. This time we wanted to be near Tintagel and we chose Penpethy Holiday Cottages, at quite short notice. From first contact Amanda - Mandy, was very helpful and efficient, quick email replies and very easy payment transaction and the fact that we were arriving late after a late start from South Wales didn't phase her either!

It was cold and dark and very wet when we arrived, but Mandy had made sure our log fire was burning bright when we arrived and very quickly showed me all I needed to know about. Considering it was after 10pm and the weather was awful it was lovely to see a friendly face, and she made a complete fuss of our poor little dog who had been stuck in the car for over 3 hours!! She also left him treats which was a very nice touch!

The cottage is lovely, very cozy with the log burner going (I'm completely addicted need one of those in my life!) The bed was a very comfy kingsize, and there was more than enough room for the two of us. The kitchen was lovely, very well equipped and I must say even down to washing up liquid, not to make a big fuss, but it's the one thing I forget and the one thing I end up buying a monster bottle off just to last a few days! Well done Mandy and Simon good luck in your new business it was a pleasure to stay with you and we will be back!

Other things to note, there are three other properties at Penpethy so check availability with Mandy if Forget-me-Not is full. There is plenty of parking at the property and a big field to walk you dog in and they recycle!!! The area is lovely, there are beaches and things to do all around, Trebawith Strand, Tintagel, Bocastle and Camelford are all within 5 mins drive!
