St. Austell Road, St. Blazey Gate
Penarth Guest House is a spacious detached house featuring three high-quality ensuite guest rooms set in its own grounds with on-site parking at the edge of the village of St Blazey Gate, just five minutes’ drive or about a 30-minute walk from the Eden Project. This part of the south Cornish coastline between the River Fowey to the east and the River Fal to the west is known as the Cornish Riviera for its beautiful gardens, palm trees and fine weather.
Outstandingly beautiful and steeped in history, the area offers many attractions for all tastes from award-winning gardens to pirates. The previous owner refurbished the guest accommodation to a high standard, and all the rooms have a TV with built-in DVD player, fast, reliable wi-fi, a hairdryer, trouser press and tea and coffee making facilities. An iron and ironing board are also available. Rates are fully-inclusive of breakfast, and we're pleased to be maintaining the high standard for food set by our predecessor! For evening meals, within just a few minutes' walk is The Four Lords, a traditional local pub serving tasty food, and for those who prefer more of a restaurant-style, The Britannia Inn is a ten-minute walk in the opposite direction.
Directly across the road is the Biscovey Fish Bar, where guests can buy fish 'n chips which can be eaten in our dining room (we'll supply plates if needed, and do the washing-up afterwards!). Visitors who like nothing better than visiting historic castles, houses and gardens will find plenty! The nearby Eden Project is one of the most visited attractions in Cornwall, and within easy reach are the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock House and Gardens, and the castles of Caerhays and Restormel - and for the Poldark fans, Charlestown (where many of the harbour sequences are shot) is only a short drive away, and it's only 20 minutes walk to the beach at Carlyon Bay and the South West Coast Path.
