Perfect place

5 out of 5
Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: Friendly, convenient, spacious, dog friendly.. Everything!
Location: Plenty to do nearby.
We stayed one night with our dogs. We had a very spacious and comfortable ensuite with the added bonus of an adjoining twin room, which was perfect for our family stay. Delicious freshly cooked breakfast which set us up for a long walk. Lots of great walks and places to visit nearby. An excellent short break and would stay there again.

An Exquisite Place in an Adorable Town

Chris and Heidi have the most lovely B&B and are exceedingly kind and generous hosts! From the lovely cross-Atlantic previsit conversations to Heidi's provision of Sudafed when I felt ill, they met every single need with warmth and timeliness! The Penrose was in a perfect location, a quick walk to town. The room I had was like a mini-suite complete with sofa and FULL kitchen! Everything was beautifully appointed down to the sugar cube holders on each table. The food was local, fresh and perfectly prepared each day. The Penrose was absolutely the most perfect B&B I ever stayed in and the cost was a bargain! I would stay here anytime! Thank you Heidi and Chris for a lovely stay!

Had a fantastic time, Heidi and Chris were really welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely spacious rooms, especially as we needed to bring our cage for our Labrador to sleep in! Lots of little extras in the room make a really comfortable stay and my son loved the option of buying chocolate and drinks using the honesty box. Breakfast was lovely especially as it was local ingredients. Would thoroughly recommend especially if you need somewhere to stay with a dog.
