About Pengirt

Forming one half of a beautifully restored historic farmhouse on the wildlife-filled Pentire headland, there’s sea views for miles from this truly special spot.

Enjoy a stunning coastal break at this renovated Cornish farmhouse on a headland where nature thrives, and make the most of its incredible location by keeping your eyes out for seals and sea birds. Ideal for walkers, families or friends, you’ll all love the relaxed pace of life here, not to mention the stunning walks from the door. 

At the centre of an ancient farmstead on the gorgeous North Cornish coast, and right next door to Pentire Farmhouse, Pengirt shares the same sense of history, with a clome oven discovered in the kitchen during the recent renovations. Today, this two bedroom retreat is both stylish and traditional, and you’ll appreciate the coastal touches to the decor, bringing the outside in. Of course, the expansive sea views from the bedrooms (one master ensuite double bedroom and one double bedroom - which can be made up into a twin on request - with ensuite) definitely help as well, and it’s easy to find yourself staring at the mesmerising waves for hours. There’s everything else you need for a relaxing break too - from the beautiful kitchen (that can interconnect with next door if both properties are booked together) to the large living room and dining area. If you feel like an alfresco breakfast, then you’ve got your own outside space at the back of the cottage and there’s a lawn that’s shared with Pentire Farmhouse at the front.

When you stay at Pengirt, Pentire headland is just waiting to be explored. It’s a beautifully unspoilt place, teeming with wildlife, so keep an eye out for grey seals, skylarks and peregrine falcons. And with miles of coastal footpaths all around, plus wonderful sandy beaches to discover, it’s a great spot for a holiday. A 15-minute stroll along the footpath that takes you to the lovely beach at Pentireglaze Haven, which at low tide links to Polzeath beach. The Atlantic waves of Polzeath make it perfect for surfers too. If you’re keener to discover the myriad of coastal paths, then wander to Pentire Point and The Rumps where there are spectacular views towards The Mouls. 

Take time to enjoy the sights of this part of north Cornwall. Wander the pretty jumble of white-washed cottages that make up the lively harbour of Port Isaac just over Pentire headland to the north. Or go south towards Rock and jump on the ferry to Padstow, the buzzy little town that’s a foodie’s dream. And no Cornish holiday would be complete without checking out all the nearby beaches. Tintagel Post Office and the stunning Lanhydrock Estate (both National Trust) are also nearby.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
