One of the best things about staying at Pengelly Retreat is our central location. You are tucked away in the rural tranquillity but within really easy access of a whole range of beautiful beaches, places to explore, great gardens and picturesque villages and towns.

We are just 15 minutes’ drive from two of the best surf beaches on both north and south coasts of Cornwall and less than 10 minutes’ down the road we have the lovely National Trust gardens at Godolphin House (the springtime bluebells are a sight to behold).

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.

Whatever floats your boat or rocks your world, we can recommend the best places to go, see, do and experience. Click on the links below for more.
