Perfectly picturesque location.
A perfectly picturesque location where our day revolved around the comings and goings of the tide. We learned to paddle board here in these shallow waters, enjoying the sun on our faces and the wildlife for company. Lucy could not have done more to make us feel looked after and welcome and any problems were resolved promptly. The cottage was cosy, comfortable and perfectly equipped for a week away from home.
We very much hope to return one day.
Peaceful and relaxing in style
We returned for our eighth visit to Pencreek and we're not disappointed. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life a week at Pecreek is just what the doctor ordered. A warm welcome awaited us with fresh flowers and tea and biscuits. The rhythm of the tide sets the pace of the holiday and the hours slowly pass as you watch the wildlife on the river and in the surrounding gardens. We spent a large part of the day paddling up the river in our kayaks and the evenings reading and sipping a gin and tonic in the beautiful bath overlooking the river. Bliss.
A lovely cottage
We had a great time at Pencreek. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We were very impressed with the location which offered us total privacy and the views over the water were outstanding. A very enjoyable stay was had by all.
Absolutely loved coming back to this amazing cottage and location. Everything is provided and the cottage proved to be a brilliant bolt hole when the snow came. Thank you to Lucy who made sure that we were Ok! We still did lots of walking around the local area. We loved watching the tides and bird life on the creek as well as the birds coming to feed from the garden. The snow showed the tracks of rabbits and deer; unfortunately we missed these visitors. The cottage is so comfortable and we had a very relaxing time - a real opportunity to relax. We look forward to another return visit.
Long weekend away in the cottage. Great location on the water and also for visiting Cornwall. Well equipped kitchen.
The city of Truro is only about a 10 minute drive away and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets.

Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles. The yachting centres of Mylor, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach of the cottage. There is a watersports centre at nearby Loe Beach where you can learn to sail or windsurf. The nearby Roseland Area of Outstanding Beauty with its superb coastal walks is also a short drive away via the King Harry Ferry.
The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas.

There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores including Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.
