One of the best things about staying at Pengelly Retreat is the central location near Hayle and St Ives in West Cornwall. Tucked away in rural tranquillity you can hide away in an idyllic bubble, whilst also enjoying fantastic access to some of the best things to do in Cornwall. Within easy reach of pristine beaches and picture-perfect villages, you can hop between your luxury self-catering accommodation and the county’s plethora of must-see attractions.

A country retreat perfect for couples and solo holidays surrounded by 5 acres of private land, guests at Pengelly can slip into a really peaceful bubble away from the daily grind. Yet, just 15 minutes’ drive from two of the best surf beaches in Cornwall, less than 10 minutes’ down the road from the National Trust gardens at Godolphin House (the springtime bluebells are a sight to behold) and a stone’s throw from a huge array of attractions, you will be spoilt for choice with things to see and do (if you can tear yourself away from your luxury yurt or lake house, that is). Ideal for short breaks and holidays in Cornwall, you are on the doorstep of the best attractions in Cornwall, including the famous Tate St Ives, St Michael’s Mount and Land’s End.

If you want to explore on two wheels rather than four, we can have high quality hire bikes delivered to you here on site. There are also lovely countryside walks to be enjoyed (perfect for both you and your four-legged friend) and an excellent riding stables 15 minutes’ drive away. And if all that fresh air has made you hungry, then feed your body and soul at some of West Cornwall’s tasty cafes, pubs and restaurants. However you wish to play out your perfect holiday, all the ingredients are there for an unforgettable time.
