Host Info

Host Review Score

Unusual and extraordinary restored merchant's house with unique 17th Century features in the heart of Penryn town, with private parking and Wifi.
Penryn is an ancient town close to Falmouth in Cornwall. There are many alley ways, known as Opes, and some interesting architecture. Plenty of little cafes nearby as well as pubs. The Penryn river is just down the hill where boats are moored. Falmouth Marina is a short walk away and there is a restaurant and bar there. Falmouth town centre is about a 30 minute walk at a brisk pace but a nice walk too, all along the edge of the river where you can see across to Flushing and even St. Mawes. It's possible to get a ferry from Falmouth across to both Flushing and St. Mawes.
