Another wonderful stay at beautiful Penjerrick - peace & quiet in picturesque surroundings with just the birds and boats as our neighbours. A true slice of heaven & were sure to return to our favourite cottage. Thank you.
Guest from Ashford stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful cottage in an amazing quiet location directly on the river fal. Recommend hiring the estates rowing boat to get a different perspective from the river. Rich with wildlife and we were lucky enough to see a seal. Of an evening we enjoyed bbqs and lit the chimnea and chilled out. We had a week of pure bliss. Highly recommend. If we were to be really picky there is no village shop or local pub but Truro is only 10 mins drive. There really was no negatives from this holiday.

Penjerrick lies in a beautiful, peaceful setting overlooking a creek on the Fal estuary. For dog owners there are several invigorating walks over fields straight from outside the cottage, but you have to travel some way for dog-friendly beaches. (Also note: for wayward dogs, owners should beware that the garden at Penjerrick is not dog secure.) The cottage is extremely well furnished and equipped, perhaps excessively so for those who prefer minimalist surroundings. Our only complaint is that I hit my head several times on the low entrance to the bathroom -- it should at least have a rubber strip on it. All in all it is a wonderful cottage.
Guest from Boppard stayed for 7 nights.
Penjerrick is a small paradise: cosy and comfortable, located in wonderful landscape. Everything was brilliant!
Guest from Honiton stayed for 7 nights.
Penjerrick is in a beautiful peaceful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The cottage is comfortable, warm and clean with wonderful dog-walking on the doorstep and surrounded by carpets of primroses, violets and daffodils at this time of year; we loved it!
Guest from Alkmaar stayed for 7 nights.
We had a wonderfull stay. Beautifull location, quiet and no traffic. The house and garden was very well taken care off. All high standard. And a nice team taking care of it all. One week is definitely too short. Cheers.
Guest from Blubberhouses stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed for a week in this lovely cottage and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The kitchen is a little small but is very well equipped....and I think that's the worst I can say. Penjerrick, like the other Tregothnan cottages, is warm, comfy and so relaxing. I can't wait to go back.
Guest from Newark stayed for 14 nights.
My family and i had the most wonderful stay in the Penjerrick cottage. After a busy day out, it was lovely to retreat to the peace of the cottage, with all the wonderful sounds of the birds and fabulous views of the Fal Estuary. All the facilities in the cottage were of a high standard; Lucy who managed the local cottages in Coombe was very welcoming and helpful. We would most definitely recommend the guided tour of the amazing Tregothnan gardens which included afternoon cream tea.
Guest from Ebenfurth stayed for 14 nights.
Are you under the impression, that there are a lot of gushing reviews about Penjerrick? There are not enough. We decided to go for a more pricey stay this time in Cornwall, after all, a poor accomodation can really sour your holiday while a great place can make all the difference. This location was worth every Pound. Penjerrick is wonderful in many ways. The location is quiet and peaceful, the views of the river are a beauty to behold, be it low or high tide. There are plenty of walks around the area, suitable for children as well. The house itself is tastefully, carefully and subliminally luxuriously renovated, the bathrooms deserve a special mention as does the kitchen which has almost everything (the toaster alone is superior to whole kitchenettes in other holiday-appartments). The only real gripe were the very soft and dented mattresses, they somehow stand in contrast to the overall well-kept state of the house. Our caretaker Lucy deserves a special mention, she was always reachable, helpful in every way we needed and made us feel very welcome indeed.
Guest from Sherborne stayed for 7 nights.
Peaceful and quiet location, probably not for everyone, but this to us was wonderful. Cottage nicely equipped and comfortable. we enjoyed our week there.
Guest from Nuneaton stayed for 7 nights.
Cottage is in an excellent location. Right on the creek, excellent for canoeing. So peaceful and quiet. Will definitely be back. Only gripe wifi is not usable.
Guest from Leighton Buzzard stayed for 7 nights.
A beautiful location suitable to our needs. Excellent property would love to visit again. Beds excellent and bedding we all slept like logs. Plenty of towels excellent sizes. Fully equipped throughout the property. Not a thing was missing.
Guest from Challock stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful cottage in a very peaceful,tranquil location. Superb views and lovely walks around Coombe.Short trip into Truro for shopping and restaurants. This is our 3rd visit to Coombe, staying in Bethel and Pencreek cottages previously and all highly recommended.
Guest from Bridport stayed for 14 nights.
A delightful, comfortable, well-equipped cottage, wonderful views and idyllic location. The customer service and care from Lucy and the cleaners is exceptional. We did not want to go home and a third week would have been perfect! We definitely hope to return.
Guest from Rhyl stayed for 7 nights.
A truly relaxing cottage, perfect location, and everything you could need in the cottage and more. Lucy is Tregothans treasure. We were blessed with some lovely weather and the cottage setting made you want to just laze around Coombe. Hope to return again One sour note - on leaving the eager cleaning crew were actually waiting prior to 10 am which I found rather rude.
Guest from Lowdham stayed for 7 nights.
Penjerrick is a beautiful cottage in a perfect, tranquil location. The views from the house are stunning and we really enjoyed sitting in the front garden overlooking the water. We were fortunate to have warm, sunny days to enjoy the outdoors and chilly evenings to enjoy the log fire. A beautiful, comfy cottage for us, our 4 month old and our westie! Thanks for a great stay!
Guest from Near Corby stayed for 7 nights.
Our 3rd time staying at the cottage and still amazes us with how beautiful the cottage and surroundings are. Perfect for dogs as the walks on the doorstep are amazing. 8 month old baby joined us for his first cornwall holiday, the only problem we found was the concrete floor isn't baby friendly so take a cushioned playmat and the high chair provided wasn't that good.
Guest from Romsey stayed for 7 nights.
An amazingly peaceful location with great outside seating in the sun. Easy access to the river and walks. No detail inside or outside the cottage is missed. First time we've returned to a cottage - not disappointed.
Guest from Exebridge stayed for 7 nights.
This is a real character cottage which could accommodate two couples quite comfortably. The cottage also enjoys the most beautiful views of the creek.
Guest from Plymouth stayed for 5 nights.
We stayed at Bethel Cottage two years ago and thought that couldn't be beaten, but Penjerrick certainly did! It was a perfect size for three adults and two dogs, the two en suites were a real bonus. The location was beautiful and tranquil, hard to believe his little piece of heaven is five minutes from Truro! I will never book another cottage anywhere else, both Penjerrick and Bethel were equally high standards and can not wait to book my next retreat with Lucy. Thank you so much! Zoë, Jeff and Graham (and Lilly and Fergus)
Guest from Tavistock stayed for 7 nights.
Fantastic cottage real home from home with the extra luxury's, brilliant location with great walks for the dogs. Can not wait to return such a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Guest from Ely stayed for 7 nights.
We spotted Penjerrick last year when we were staying at Holly Cottage and wanted to go there this year because of its superior position. It did not disappoint and our discerning friends were well impressed. Just a couple of niggles: i) the courtesy lights from the parking space to the house didn't work - necessary on dark October evenings. Reported to Lucy but not fixed during our stay. ii) heating very complicated to control. Our bathroom radiator could not be turned off. Maybe it's a sauna....... iii) light in bathrooms poor for wet shavers iv) bit mean supplying only 1 bin bag, no spare toilet rolls and just 4 dishwasher tablets. However, one can forgive all that when a place is so perfect.
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage was beautifully done, perhaps a little less furniture in the lounge would improve but other than that it was delightfully laid out and furnished. The cottage was clean and had all we needed to cook and relax. The bathrooms were luxurious and the beds comfortable . Slept so well and left feeling very relaxed The outside views and the location were so perfect , the cottage is near enough to other places go out for day , but then felt isolated and in our own little bubble when we were at the cottage watching the wildlife and tides , this is a hard combination to find. Loved the walks , wildlife, watching the tides, local tea and jam. It was a little slice of old fashioned peaceful heaven , never to be forgotten. Wouldn't hesitate to return again
Guest from Near Corby stayed for 7 nights.
Fantastic holiday cottage, this was our second time at Penjjerick and we will be booking our third visit for next year soon. The cottage room layout was different than last time but was much better for family use.
Guest from Godalming stayed for 7 nights.
Penjerrick is a little slice of heaven situated on the picturesque River Fal and my family and I had a truly wonderful week sailing our dinghy off the jetty alongside the boat we hired and enjoying the comforts of the lovely furnished cottage. Certainly a week to treasure & we hope to return next year!
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
We had a really lovely week and will definitely go back - what a perfect place! Really private and a great view of the creek. The beds and the bathrooms are particularly luxurious.
Guest from Stafford stayed for 14 nights.

Guest from Wolverhampton stayed for 7 nights.
Where do i start.Penjerrick is the best cottage we have stayed in,and we have stayed in quite a few around the country.The location is simply idilic.If you want peace and quite,with total relaxation guaranteed,then Penjerrick is the place for you.We were also very lucky to have a week of fantastic weather,who needs to go abroad. The cottage was very well equipped to a high standard.The setting,over looking the river Fal was top draw.We were lucky enough to take advantage of the BBQ,cooking our tea on 2 occasions and also having breakfast on the fantastic patio area.I feel the pictures on the web site dont do the cottage or its location justice,even though these pictures helped make our choice.We will be back to Penjerrick,thats a promise.
Guest from Towcester stayed for 7 nights.
Coombe is a little hamlet where it feels like time has stood still. We hope that it does not become over developed as a holiday destination in the future and retains it's local community feel. The near by tea rooms are excellent with the best cakes and views you could wish for. Penjerrick has been beautifully renovated and furnished and commands lovely views over the creek. We do agree with previous reviews about too much furniture and the fact that wi-fi is not great. Don't rely on it.
Guest from Henlow stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely cottage, well maintained in a stunning setting beside the creek. Well equipped, maybe a little too much furniture in the lounge. Will return.
Guest from Woking stayed for 14 nights.
Excellent position, neat, clean, warm cottage. Great for two adults and two children. Too crowded and cramped for 4 adults. A good time was had by all.
Guest from Penarth stayed for 4 nights.

Guest from Gloucester stayed for 7 nights.
Your best cottage yet. We have stayed in two of your other cottages previously and thought they could not be bettered, penjerrick proved otherwise. Beautiful views, lovely decor, very comfortable huge bed. To warm for the wood burner but maybe next time. Dogs loved the garden and the local walks. Well equiped, put the tele in the main lounge with the wood burner would be good. Can't wait to return.
