About us
This is our beautiful home in West Cornwall. And as soon as we saw it we knew it was too good to keep to ourselves.

Lakes & Wildlife
There are two beautiful lakes on our land, fed by the stream that forms our border, and home to wild brown trout and a whole range of birds, butterflies and dragonflies. Have a go at fishing or take the plunge for a wild swim.

The Gardens
The Gardens at Pengelly are an intriguing mix of ornamental and wild. Ponds and a ‘jungle garden’ of tree ferns and exotic plants greet you by the entrance and merge gradually with Cornish wildflowers, trees and meadow.

The Meadow
Beyond the lakes you’ll find native trees, hedgerows and a meadow with a patchwork of different grasses. Discover peaceful sundowner and picnic spots or find your perfect place for reflection, painting, reading or meditation.
