Reviews of Penrose Burden

Here are some of the lovely reviews and feedback we’ve had from our guests in the past.


For The Linney

The Linney was a beautiful and picturesque little home away from home. The owner was really helpful and kind. The place is very snug, the bathroom is gorgeous. The view over the valley is really exceptional. We had a lot of rain when we were there but it didn't matter. The location is really accessible to Bodmin Moor (highly recommend) and it was equally easy to get to either the North or South coasts. Really recommend this quiet little hamlet for a proper quiet break from the busy life. Ms Clare Murphy,  3 February 2019

We had a lovely holiday staying at the Linney over new year, the little extras that were included was a thoughtful touch & much appreciated. Would definitely recommend it. Mrs Jeanette White,  7 January 2019

Absolutely the most wonderful way to spend our Christmas this year. The Linney is warm and cosy and has all the amenities needed so that you don't want to go anywhere but stay at home and relax. Stunning views. Thank you and totally recommend. Mr S,  29 December 2018

Lovely property, very friendly and welcoming hosts. Mr Adrian Wilding - 22nd October 2018

A beautiful cottage in pleasant surroundings. Warm and welcoming hosts 10/10. J Diaper - 17th September 2018

Jingles are a beautiful property, which is set in an unspoilt and quiet country location. It is close to all main roads, which makes exploring all Cornwall very easy, and is also located close to some lovely pub restaurants and local walks. Mr Neil Stout - 12th September 2018

Loved our holiday we were made to feel really welcome and this little cottage and the views are stunning. Mrs Bernadette Stewart - 3rd September 2018

Jingles were immaculately furnished, contemporary appliances, modern and clean yet retained a very homely feel. Jane was an amazing host, very friendly and knowledgeable about Cornwall. The cottage is in easy reach of Eden Project, beaches, coastal walks, and lots of great things to do. We honestly had the most perfect stay and would highly recommend jingles or any of the other cottages, it’s very clear the owners care about their guests, and whilst the cottages are within a stones throw of one another, it is an incredibly peaceful and private haven. Don’t hesitate to book, as this little gem will be in demand. Miss AnnMarie McKenna - 27th August 2018

Idyllic retreat, perfect hosts & we feel pampered. Trevor & Annmarie - 24th August 2018

Perfect accommodation, had everything we needed for our weeks stay. The property was immaculate, the hosts very friendly willing to help. Loved the attention to detail in the hampers for both our dog and us. Miss Kally Pugh - 20th August 2018

Just lovely. Excellent standard throughout, from the fixtures & fittings to the quality of the bed linen & towels. Very comfortable, lovely views, lovely hosts, quiet, and a very good welcome pack on arrival. It's a wonderful place to stay at any time of the year; I imagine it would be very cosy in the winter as well with the wood burner. Miss Elisa Villa - 16th July 2018

Jingles at Penrose Burden were Amazing. The location was excellent, the cottage was amazing, the standard of finish was beautiful and the owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They had recommendations and a lovely welcome hamper. I can’t wait to come back to Penrose Burden!! Cornwall is a beautiful place and full of adventures! Best beaches for miles full of history. Miss Amy Baines - 17th June 2018

For Snappers

Dear Jane and Ian. We want to thank you for the lovely stat at the Snappers Cottage during Christmas days. We had a wonderful and peaceful time. Thanks to the nicely decorated Christmas tree and the cosy and quiet atmosphere created inside the cottage. We enjoyed visiting the nearby Eden Project (very impressive by night), also driving to the fabulous Port Isaac, Padstow and Bude. It was definitely the right decision to spend Christmas at the Penrose cottages and St. Breward! All the best. Mrs K,  28 December 2018

I love Snappers! Such a beautiful cottage. We've has the most wonderful week in Cornwall. Penrose Burden Cottage are stunning. We've enjoyed spectacular sunsets and cosy log fires. Our favourite beach was Rock - clear water and fine golden sand. Rick Steins Fish and Chips were so delicious. Thank you Jane and Ian (thank you Sam for getting logs for woodburner). Thank you for a wonderful relaxing time. Mr and Mrs F,  25 October 2018

We have absolutely loved every second of our stay at this beautiful cottage.

Everything you could possibly need has been provided. Stunning views and a peaceful location and incredibly helpful owners! The Adam's Family - 4th August 2018

The Cornish Horizon team dealt with all my queries promptly and professionally, calling me back where necessary. Whether it was via the phone or with the staff in the Pads tow office all the staff were friendly and very helpful. The Butter well accommodation at Penrose Burden was absolutely beautiful; as this is newly refurbished for 2018 we were very impressed. The owners made us feel very welcome, beautiful welcome pack on arrival, extremely high standard of accommodation and furnishings throughout the property, plenty of little extras that make for a very comfortable and cosy stay, a real must for the perfect holiday location in Cornwall. Perfect setting for either an individual booking or as there are several properties on the one site, perfect for larger bookings, having your own accommodation, but with such a beautiful shared open space. Will definitely book again and cant recommend highly enough, fabulous! Mrs Diane Tales - 24th July 2018

Newly renovated to a very high standard, and sympathetically finished to be in keeping with the period. Exceptional attention to detail - very thoughtful ‘extras’ in the Welcome Pack.

Cottage was one of 4 in this location, all recently renovated by the owners but all very private. Owners were very welcoming and personable. Mrs Johanna Banthorpe - 9th July 2018

For Otterbridge

Otterbridge is a fantastic, well equiped cottage with wonderful views. We really appreciated the warm welcome and the lovely cream tea. This has been the perfect base to explore this area of Cornwall. We’ve had some great walks and we were here at just the right time for the bluebells which were stunning. Thank you Jane & Ian for your hospitality. Highly recommended. Sue & Ray April 2019

We spent two wonderful weeks in this well equipped cottage. We appreciated the warm welcome and all the things which were provided to get the best of the holiday. All of it made the days in Cornwall unique. Thanks to the fiendly hosts Ian and Jane. Gisewski April 2019

Stayed in Otterbridge cottage for a week and WOW. Such a great place to stay and exceeded our expectations. Jane & Ian were such friendly and helpful hosts! Beautiful cottages and surroundings we will definitley be returning. Thank you for a great stay. Kerry & Martin April 2019

Lovely cottage and wonderful to come back to after a days sightseeing. Mrs Wilma Fletcher,  14 March 2019

Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The log burner was very welcome for our Christmas break. Loved it all!Mrs Karen Flood,  3 January 2019

Otterbridge was a fantastic cottage and really felt like home whilst we were there and them views, well they were stunning. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable.  Miss Rebecca Francis,  5 December 2018

I was astounded at the quality of the accommodation provided. The dog hamper, the superb shower, the comfortable beds, the warmth, the cleanliness, the tiny details like the butter dish! This is the perfect retreat. The welcome was so warm. Simply lovely. To be honest I am usually a bit put off by the word "luxury" as to me this can sometimes mean "un-homely" - but these cottages are a mixture of homely warmth and comfort and high end luxury. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go again!Ms Lynnette Homersham,  1 November 2018

My partner and I spent the most wonderful week at Otterbridge cottage last month (September). After a warm welcome from Jane, we were amazed at just how much thought and detail had gone into the cottages. They are not only beautiful with the most warm and cosy feel, but attention to detail is superb, with literally everything you need set out perfectly. The cottage was also dog friendly with a super, well contained, private garden straight outside the front door and even a welcome hamper for our dog! We did not go hungry either, with a delicious cream tea waiting for us on the kitchen table upon arrival. We are regular visitors to Cornwall and Penrose Burden tops everywhere we have stayed previously. The most blissful and magical week away - to top it off we also got engaged during our stay which was just the icing on the cake :-) So it was extra special to have a luxury cottage to spend our time in. Thank you so much Jane and family for a truly fantastic week away. We hope to visit again soon. Best wishes. Rachel & Adam ,  11 October 2018

This property was the best we have ever stayed in, so clean, comfortable, and the owners made us so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful views from our cottage, which was Otterbridge. Mrs Gladys Richardson - 9th October 2018

Absolutely wonderful property and hosts! We will definitely be returning! Miss Rachel Skeels - 1st October 2018

A lovely cottage in a wonderful setting. An ideal base to explore North Cornwall. Mrs V Brown - 30th September 2018

Otterbridge is a delightful property with beautiful furnishings. There is a lovely attention to detail from cream tea and fresh flowers on arrival and supply of logs for the log burner. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Cannot fault the property. Would thoroughly recommend it to other people for the views, the property itself and peace and tranquillity of location. J Robinson - 3rd September 2018

A really good base to see Cornwall, not far from the sea in any direction, loads of supermarkets if you’re going self catering, lots of free things to do and we are going back next year to the same property as we could take our dogs with us, and the landlord was very accommodating nothing was to much trouble, once again a very enjoyable holiday. Lots of walks for the dogs as where we stayed was near the Camel Trail and most pubs and cafes you can take your dog with you. Mrs Rosea Toogood - 13th August 2018

Otterbridge is a lovely apartment, spacious and modern but with lovely character. The place is very well equipped and has lovely views of the hills from the living room. The host, Jane, is very friendly and welcoming and was on hand if we needed anything. The outside area with barbecue was a real benefit and our children loved the neighbour’s black Labrador - a firm friend by the end of the week! I would highly recommend Otterbridge. Mr Robert Arnold - 24th July 2018
