Step Inside

Penpol House is a stunning detached private house located in Penpol, a beautiful hamlet near Crantock beach in north Cornwall. A central hallway welcomes guests on arrival and leads to the spacious social rooms of the ground floor. The large living room complete with bay windows and original features is a restful place to enjoy a quiet afternoon or gather together for pre-dinner drinks perhaps. The games room houses a full sized pool table where family challenges commence and children can enjoy some adult-free space. The kitchen and dining space offers an enormous area for all the party to cook, chat and chill. With Cornwall firmly on the foodie map, make the most of your holiday menu using the freshest of fish and seafood landed daily at Newquay harbour, artisan breads, meat and vegetables. The modern kitchen is a chefs dream and the central island unit will soon see the party all get stuck in with the preparations. The large wooden dining table can be dressed to impress for all celebrations or simply a place to refuel before dashing back to the beach. There are 2 staircases at Penpol House, the grand staircase and the original butlers staircase to the rear, both leading to the first floor and collection of 6 beautiful bedrooms and 5 luxury bathrooms. Each bedroom has been stylishly dressed with a soft grey and cream colour palette accentuated with bright and cheerful fabrics and furnishings.
