Nestled into the cliffs and trees of its own private headland between beaches on the beautiful Atlantic coast of north Cornwall, Pentonwarra is the perfect holiday home for families, for friends, and for anyone interested in the many delights that the area has to offer. To the west, the house overlooks Trevone's Rocky Beach, ideal for exploring rock pools, skimming stones, and scrambling around on sun-baked rocks. To the east, the garden overlooks Trevone Bay, where swimmers and surfers share the waves and families play on the golden sand. The sea is so close that you can leave your towel in the garden!

About Victoria Gulland
Victoria Gulland manages Pentonwarra on behalf of the Porter family. Pentonwarra was once a little shepherd's cottage nestled into the cliffs, but in the early 20th century, it was bought and extended by a great-uncle, who made it into the beautiful home it is now.
Victoria Gulland purchased this House in 1949
What makes this House unique
Pentonwarra is the perfect holiday home. To the west, the house overlooks Trevone's Rocky Beach, ideal for exploring rock pools, skimming stones, and scrambling around on sun-baked rocks. To the east, the garden overlooks Trevone Bay, where swimmers and surfers share the waves and families play on the golden sand. The sea is so close that you can leave your towel in the garden! Further afield, but still within reach of a delightful walk along the spectacular section of coast path that passes Pentonwarra's front door, lies Padstow. In the other direction lies Trevose Head (whose lighthouse can be seen at night from Pentonwarra), not to mention several landmarks and special beaches and coves on the way. Even so, visitors usually spend most of the time relaxing in the house and garden.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We loved the house IN the sea.
The location of the house is fantastic. Everything is lovingly decorated and very clean. We had a good time and would come again and again.
We have stayed at Pentonwarra since 2000 and always fullfills 😊
The house is huge and very well-appointed. Beautifully decorated with lovely bed linen & toiletries, etc. The housekeeper was really helpful and the admin-side was handled very professionally.
Even in bad weather we had an amazing stay and we would definitely come back.
Pentonwarra is a great place to stay.
The spacious rambling house is wonderfully kept and marvelously equipped for comfort and relaxation. We particuarly enjoyed sitting on the terrace watching glorious sun sets over the sea. Nobody wanted to leave.
Had a lovely time in this beautiful house. Fantastic location right on the coast. Also all the extras provided in the house were really appreciated, from the welcome jam and scones to all the facilities.
Simply superb location at Trevone
We had a fabulous week at this wonderful house which is perched on an outcrop between the rocky and sandy Trevone beaches. Amazing mesmerising views watching the relentless tide ebb and flow from the dinning table, the long veranda and the "love seat". The house is very comfortable with lovely seating areas, reading alcoves and the large garden with dining table was an added bonus. Wonderful holidays for 4 adults and 3 children ranging from ages of 80 to 10 years.
Distance to beach: 0 minutes (it's right by the front door)
Nearest airport is Newquay, 14 miles away. Nearest train station Bodmin Parkway, 20 miles. Use of car recommended, though there are local shops and Padstow is only 2 miles away. Some supermarkets deliver to the house.

Further afield (still on the coast path) are the golden sands of Constantine Bay in one direction and the diverse attractions of Padstow in the other.
