Penbroath Cornish Cottages

Quality cottages set within a private courtyard

Penbroath Farm has been in existence as a farmstead since the 16th century. Today, it is no longer a working farm but now provides accommodation in the form of 3 beautiful cottages set around a secluded, private leafy courtyard which is tucked 200 yards down a private drive. The properties are bordered by fields with a right of way for dog walking.

Located in Carnhell Green, a tranquil hamlet with its own pub, post office and shop, these delightful cottages offer great access to open countryside, yet they are just a stone’s throw away from many dog-friendly beaches, including Gwithian Towans and Godrevy. The beaches are spectacular – backed by sand dunes tufted with wild grass, at low tide there is a vast amount of sand to enjoy as well as large areas of rock pools and caves that are uncovered – great for exploring!

This is the perfect base for dog owners to explore south west Cornwall.

The Cottages 

The Mowhay: a lovely ‘upside down’ cottage converted from a former hay barn with its own large private garden (table/chairs, barbecue, loungers) at the back for relaxing.

Access is up a small set of steps to the front door into an open-plan kitchen dining room and living space.   A wood burner provides soft cosy light in the winter.  Stairs lead you down to the double bedroom (half-tester bed) and shower room (suite).

The Cottage is a pretty single-storey 17th century former farmhouse with its own enclosed, private sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue). Step up to stable doors into a roomy hallway (space for coats/boots). The cottage has a light and airy kitchen dining room and in the living room there is a wood burner set in the original granite fireplace for cosy winter evenings.  There is a spacious window seat in the lounge and a bird feeder is positioned opposite so that you can view the large number of birds that visit. Due to the age and character of this property there are low door lintels (5’8″) to living room and kitchen. Double bedroom with TV and lovely ensuite shower-room with heated towel rail.

The cottages have all the amenities you should need including a dishwasher, microwave, fridge and oven/cookers. They share an indoor heated swimming pool (available April to end of October). The pool is free to use.

Owners Jon, Ann and Gus the dog live across the courtyard in the former farmhouse and whilst you will have plenty of privacy during your stay, they are close at hand if you should need anything.
