Nestled in the heart of the historic and vibrant Cornish town of Lostwithiel, paces away from the River Fowey is Penvose House.
This, characterful, dog-friendly, holiday home benefits from a fantastic, elevated position with stunning views across the Cornish countryside, a close proximity to local amenities, the unique shops dotted throughout the town and a welcoming interior adorned with charming original features as well as three beautifully-appointed bedrooms; the perfect setting for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of Cornwall.
Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and step into the sitting room where the gentle glow of the woodburning stove creates a welcoming ambience, the perfect place to unwind after a day full of exploration.
Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can help prepare delicious meals that the whole family can enjoy around the spacious dining table.
On sunny evenings, why not dine alfresco out on the decking where you can admire the uninterrupted views across the rolling countryside and maybe even fire up the barbecue?
When stars fill the sky above, travel up to the first floor to wash off the day’s adventures in the sleek family bathroom before catching up on some much-needed sleep in either the king-size, double or twin room which boasts added flexibility thanks to a zip and link feature as well as an en-suite shower.
If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, venture into the heart of Lostiwthiel and treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at The Globe Inn or Asquith’s Restaurant.
Enjoy beautiful walks along the River Fowey before brushing up on the area’s history at Lostwithiel Museum; continue the historic excursion by taking a short drive up to Bodmin where you can tour its 18th-century Jail or Bodmin Keeps, Cornwall’s Army Museum.
Well worth visiting while you are here is Restormel Castle, Lanhydrock Heights and Cardinham Woods, popular with dog walkers and cyclists.
The coast is also easily accessible, take a scenic drive to Par where you and your beloved canine companion can stroll the golden shores of Par Sands which boasts breath-taking views over the English Channel.
Alternatively head north the famous beaches of Newquay where watersports fans will be in their element thanks to its rolling surf.
All this and more awaits at Penvose House.
