Penlan – for walkers…

Penlan is situated only 250 metres from the beautiful beach at Porthcothan Bay and as we are so close to the coast path, the bus stop and the pub it is an ideal spot for walkers. We have two double ensuite rooms both with tea and coffee making facilites and TVs.  A third room has two single beds and guests use a private bathroom or share our bathroom facilities if both ensuite rooms are already booked. Breakfasts range from fruit, cereal and yoghurt to a hearty full English to set you up for the day. We are dog friendly and can help with kit transfer.


Penlan is ideally situated midway between Newquay and Padstow both of which are about a day’s walk away so we are very popular with people walking the coast path. We are within easy walking distance of the coast path, beach, shop, bus stop and phone box (no mobile signal in the valley) – all about 2 or 3 minutes easy walk. The local pub (a free house), the Tredrea Inn (01841 520450) is about 7 or 8 minutes walk and serves food most of the year.


Penlan – for holidaymakers…

Penlan is a 1930’s bungalow in which the front three rooms can be used as a private, modern and comfortable self-contained area (but not self catering) with it’s own front door and small hallway. The accommodation consists of two en-suite double bedrooms (shower and toilet) together with the third room which is used for breakfasts, lounging and can sleep an additional two people in single beds to cater for groups of up to six people.  The accommodation is flexible in terms of single, double and twin occupancy and rooms can be booked individually or together subject to availability  – please contact us for details –


We try to serve up what you want when you want it and favour organic local produce whenever possible. Eggs are almost always from our own organic free range hens.
