Make a holiday rental home or holiday cottage in Pensilva, Cornwall your home away from home

Pensilva is a village in South East Cornwall. It has its own football club and is close to Liskeard, Looe and Polperro and convenient for the Tamar Bridge and the City of Plymouth in Devon, as well as Bodmin Moor and the south and north Cornish coasts. Pensilva is within the Caradon Cornish Mining World Heritage site. It is a special community in which the non-political organisation Gorseth Kernow exists to maintain the Celtic spirit.

Places to stay in Pensilva

Pensilva evolved like neighbouring Minions and Darite because of the mining activity that was taking place on the moorland above. Pensilva only had one farm until the expanding mines needed accommodation to house its workforce. Within a few years numerous smallholdings and rows of cottages were erected, followed by small businesses, shops, three chapels and a pub. At this time the pub doubled as a hotel for visiting inspectors and speculators.

As the mining days came to an end people moved away from the area, but today these old miners cottages have been renovated and are now used as self-catering holiday cottages. Tourist information offices and estate agents receive numerous enquiries for this type of holiday property because a holiday cottage gives you the freedom you need to explore all that Cornwall has on offer.

Self-catering has always been a cheaper option but a cottage is much more spacious than a room in a bed and breakfast and most hotels. Cottage holidays offer a home from home experience. They are tastefully furnished with all mod cons and some allow you to bring you dog on holiday as well.

The children enjoyed the house being three storey and there was loads of space so we weren't trapped under each others feet all the time. Sue was really helpful and the communication throughout was fantastic. Would highly recommend for a wonderful holiday.
