Summertime at Pengelly Retreat

Can you believe we are into June already, summer is well and truly here at Pengelly Retreat. The gardens, meadows, land and lakes are looking absolutely gorgeous and are once again full of wildflowers, birds, butterflies and dragonflies. This really is my favourite time of the year – apart from the occasional hayfever sneeze attack that is!

Sunny skies over the Pengelly Retreat Boat House

We’ve been so busy with happy guests staying in our 3 accommodations – the cosy Mill Annexe and our lakeside Boat House & Sail House – that I haven’t actually written a Postcard from Pengelly since January. Whoops!

My excuse is that in January we opened our beautiful Sail House yurt to our first guests and then mid-March we unveiled the rather lovely Boat House cabin too. And since then we literally haven’t stopped! At least not long enough to sit down at the laptop and type a blog post.

Looking lush: the Sail House in June

We’ve been so happy to get all the lovely feedback from those who have stayed with us in 2019 so far. Here’s what a recent visitor to the Sail House wrote in the guest book… These really make me smile when I read them – holiday bliss all round!

A little piece of heaven on earth

We still have a little bit of space in June, July and August – so if you are flexible on dates then take a look and snag yourself a piece of paradise in Cornwall this summer. Alternatively for the savvy traveller this is the best time to book up for autumn – equally lovely and a lot less busy on the beaches once the school holidays are over. So take your pick from the best dates in September, October and November now.

We look forward to seeing you at Pengelly Retreat soon – come and stay soon before we put the prices up 😉
