Snaptrip says

Guests consistently praise Pencarrow for its stunning views and prime location in Polruan, Cornwall. The cottage is celebrated for its comfort and the inspiring surroundings accessible by foot or ferry. Visitors appreciate the cleanliness and the thoughtful touches, such as a welcome pack, although this is not guaranteed for every stay. The property's charm and the picturesque setting make it a favourite for many, with some guests returning for the exceptional experience.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property was noted to be cleaned to a very high standard, indicating exceptional cleanliness.

The location is highly praised for its views and proximity to local attractions, making it an almost perfect spot for a holiday.

The house is described as comfortable and spacious, providing a relaxing stay, though one comment about the small cooker suggests a slight deduction.

There is insufficient information on the overall maintenance of the property and its facilities to provide a score.

The mention of a welcome pack suggests thoughtfulness in hosting, but as gifts are not guaranteed for every stay, the score reflects this.

About this property

Perched on the hillside overlooking the River Fowey, this reverse-level house is all about the views. Bring your dog on holiday too and enjoy exploring the stunning South West Coast Path.

Perfect for a family or group of friends who want to explore the beautiful south east coast of Cornwall. Pet-friendly and sleeping 6 in four bedrooms, it provides plenty of space. Set across two levels with the living accommodation on the upper level, there are outstanding views across Polruan and over to the picturesque, estuary town of Fowey. With a couple of local pubs and a passenger ferry which takes you across the river from the Quay, you can leave your car parked up and enjoy your exploring on foot. A short drive will take you to the fishing villages of Looe and Polperro, and a little further away there are plenty of local gardens, country houses and famous attractions to try out.

    The views are truly exceptional. This is true from the balcony where you can eat breakfast, and from both the main bedroom and one other. We all slept with the curtains open to take advantage of the view as it changed throughout the night and into the morning. The property was presented beautifully and was cleaned to a very high standard. We were greeted by a lovely welcome pack when we arrived, which added to our appreciation. The cooker was small for a family of 5 but for a holiday when we were not planning to do any major catering, this was not a major issue. Access to Polruan is via very narrow roads, which were interesting to navigate in bank holiday traffic but the view when you arrived made this all worthwhile.

    This is a perfect spot for a holiday and the view simply can’t be beaten. The house has everything needed and we were pleasantly surprised by the space and comfort. We’re already missing sitting at the window watching the bustle on the water.
