    “The house has a relaxed feel to it which makes it enjoyable for large groups (there were 8 of us - 3 families and a dog) but the pictures are out of date as Sykes market the property as being modern inside and light and contemporary.”

    This is not the case at all and the property now appears to be filled with contents from an elderly relatives deceased estate - being 1000s of very old and musty smelling books and dark book cases that are often falling apart. These books have been put everywhere - literally in every space possible - and that includes even in kitchen drawers, meaning that there is only 1 cupboard that can be used in the kitchen for a house that sleeps 9.

    This is not the case at all and the property now appears to be filled with contents from an elderly relatives deceased estate - being 1000s of very old and musty smelling books and dark book cases that are often falling apart. These books have been put everywhere - literally in every space possible - and that includes even in kitchen drawers, meaning that there is only 1 cupboard that can be used in the kitchen for a house that sleeps 9. The property has no drying rack or airer available for clothes, yet it offers a washing machine and tumble dryer. The towels given to guests are also very thin and old and there are no additional ones for the communal areas, like a hand towel in the bathroom. As with the other comments, the house keeper is very helpful and friendly and the property was left clean so in that regard it was good. The house itself would also be good if it was at a price that reflected the condition and the pictures told the true state. It was those two factors against the reality that has caused my disappointment. If the owner spent just a few pounds on a drying rail (as has been suggested by other guests several times) and left some storage (or even bought some more shelving) for the paying guests, then the house would be worth the rental, or possibly even more. There was also an large deep wooden chest full of someones dirty clothes left in the house, presumably the owners. I only opened it whilst looking for a dustpan and brush (also not provided) but I'd suggest to the owner that personal items like these are padlocked.

    Thank you for your feedback. As a result, we are getting new, thick towels. There are a lot of books in the house which some guests appreciate. But I agree we should update the photographs to show the bookcases. The dustpan and brush is under the sink. The drying rack is under the stairs. I'm sorry you had trouble finding them. We will add a note in the guide book for guests about this. Our housekeeper, Poppy, is always very happy to help guests with such queries. Property Owner

The property

A grand coastal residence in every sense!

Penare House offers a high specification interior, generous proportions and a hill top position with sea views and convenient access to the beach and coastal footpath in the fishing village of Mevagissey on Cornwall's golden Riviera coastline.

It is a handsome property for large parties but equally great for couples looking to enjoy a romantic break.

Arranged over three levels and newly refurbished throughout, the interior smolders with an understated elegance.

Perhaps the most striking feature is the master en-suite bedroom with its ocean views, antique four poster bed and chaise longue or, if it is an atmosphere for entertaining, then the kitchen/diner which boasts a wood burner beside a farmhouse dining table, every conceivable appliance including a range cooker and doors to the enclosed rear garden equipped with a brick barbecue and patio furniture.

Adults can retire to the comfy sitting room and the warmth of an open fire in the cooler months and for children there is an entertainment room on the top floor equipped with a second TV, wireless broadband, hi-fi, games, books and a pair of tripod mounted binoculars.

Mevagissey village and harbour, which still operates a small fleet and pleasure boats, is a ten minute walk along narrow streets lined with fishermen cottages, old inns, restaurants and galleries.

Convenient for the beaches at Polstreath (about 250 yards away at the foot of the cliff) Pentewan (2.1 miles) and Gorran Haven (3.8 miles) and within a 10 mile radius of the renowned Eden Project, the award winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey and harbourside village of St Mawes.

Flexible with five bedrooms, practical with three bathrooms and convenient with parking for three cars, Penare House caters exceptionally well for families and offers bespoke pricing for couples during the low season.

About the location

MEVAGISSEY

St. Austell 5.5 miles; Truro 16 miles.

The perfect Cornish fishing village, with winding cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour full of boats. Stunning walks lead along the coast in both directions, with sandy beaches, high cliffs and hidden coves to explore. The village has an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, whilst just up the road are the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey also runs daily between Easter and September. Spend some time at the Tall Ships harbour at Charlestown (7 miles) with its shipwreck museum, or among the tropical biomes of the world-famous Eden Project (11 miles). The stunning coastline, fabulous beaches and renowned gardens of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula are a short drive down the coast while Truro, with its shops, restaurants, theatre and cathedral can be reached by car in half an hour.
