Our stay at Pennine was comfortable and the surroundings area was idyllic and peaceful but we found we were quite isolated from local restaurants and supermarkets.The New inn pub was close by but opening hours were very limited.
The cottage had everything you need for a comfortable stay but my only disappointment was the couch in the lounge ,it needs updating as it was difficult to relax.I also struggle to see how maybe a family of 4 could sit adequately in the lounge area.
In saying that the beds were very comfortable and the shower was excellent.
We spent two weeks here. Family of four with teenage kids.
The property is a cosy cottage with a good sized master bedroom and twin room. The shower room is compact but has a great shower cubicle with a powerful shower.
The kitchen is well equipped with a small dining table for 4. The living room is also compact but comfortable.
It is worth mentioning that parking is a bit of a challenge given the tight lane outside and while the driveway can take a large family hatchback you have to be comfortable with your parking skills. It doesn't detract from the cottage just something to be aware of if you are not used to Cornish roads.
The village has great amenities, with the shop/post office open 7 days a week, a cafe and pub. The location is fantastic being just over a mile from Carne beach.
Overall a very enjoyable holiday in a very pleasant location.
Pennine is a very nice cottage in a beautiful village. I don't think the photos do it justice as I was concerned it would be a bit snug for 4 adults but it was fine. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and perfectly positioned with lovely walks from the door. It is close to the pub and shop both of which are very good. The garden gets evening sun, perfect for an aperitiv. The village is very pleasant to walk around in the evening taking in the church, water garden and of course, the pub.
Melinsey Mill is close by and is a wonderful peaceful place to have cream teas by the lake or delicious pizzas from their pizza oven in the evening when the twinkly lights come on. Carne beach is an easy walk away and is stunning.
I would love to stay at Pennine again as it is a perfect base for exploring Roseland which has so much to offer.
