About Penrose BunkhouseHassle-free bunkhouse accommodation for those who want to spend more time exploring the Cornish coast than indoors.
Located right on the South West Coast Path at Chyvarloe in Cornwall, Penrose bunkhouse is the ideal accommodation for families and groups with a keen sense of adventure.
Simple, but with all the basic facilities you’d expect from a holiday property, the bunkhouse is heated by a wood burning stove in the living room. But with spectacular sea views, you probably won’t be spending much time indoors.
Enjoy a bracing cliff-top stomp along the coast path, or, for something a little quicker, jump on your bike and head out along one of the marked trails on the Penrose estate and around nearby Porthleven.
With so much on your doorstep, including a beautiful beach at Gunwalloe, you needn’t stray too far. But magnificent West Cornwall has a lot to offer, not least the spectacular Lizard peninsula, mainland Britain’s most southerly point.
