There’s something quite magical about the land here at Pengelly Retreat. It’s such a peaceful spot and the perfect place to retreat to nature and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We chose the name Pengelly Retreat because of the tranquil and almost mystical feeling to the land here.

As you arrive the thing you’ll notice straight away is the quiet and calm, the sounds of water from the stream, lake and ponds, the tranquillity, fresh air and natural spaces. Our ethos is to provide calm, natural and soothing accommodation spaces where you can relax, reconnect and spend time in and close to nature.  Here you have complete freedom to do as you please, relax at Pengelly surrounded by the sounds and sights of nature. It’s a great spot for bird watching, seeing the fish jump in the lake, watching the dragon flies and butterflies in the sunshine. As the day draws in stoke up a roaring fire in your fire pit, watch the stars come out and cook up something delicious over the flames.

We also offer a range of holistic experiences and treats for our guests, read on and click on the links to discover more…

Yoga, Spa and Beauty Treatments 

How about booking yourself a private yoga session with our recommended yoga teacher, either in your accommodation or outside in the gardens or by the lake.  Alternatively if you fancy some pure relaxation, we can offer a range of high end spa and beauty treatments here at Pengelly Retreat in conjunction with Home Spa Cornwall.  

Delicious Cornish Food Boxes 

We provide all guests in the Sail House and the Boat House with complimentary welcome supplies of butter, milk, jam and bread/rolls – and the same for any guests staying 3 nights or more in the Mill Annexe. We also provide you with store cupboard essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper and cooking oil.

And if you’d like a super-easy way to stock up on high quality, locally sourced food and drink for your stay at Pengelly and to save yourself the hassle of food shopping on arrival, then we recommend the award-winning Cornish Food Box Company.  Order from their tempting range in advance of your stay and your personal food box will be delivered to your accommodation here at Pengelly Retreat ready for your arrival.
