About The Pentires

A group of two restored farmhouses sleeping 12 in total, perfect for family gatherings or groups of friends holidaying together

Two individual cottages sleeping 12 in total.

Pentire Farmhouse and Pengirt make up this small group of newly restored and traditionally furnished farmhouses perched on the Pentire Head and surrounded by craggy cliffs, blooming wildflowers, wildlife and miles of coastal footpaths.

Your group will love the flexibility of staying in these cottages with interconnecting doors on the ground and first floor, meaning that you can enjoy having your own space as well as linking up for dinners and gatherings. There’s plenty of room in the large sitting room for everyone and, upon request, we can pull the dining table out in the smaller sitting/dining room  for seating 12 around the grand table – ideal for those special occasions. Also, a short walk away is the wonderful Stepper View, which sleeps 4.

Amble down the bridle path to the secluded cove at Pentireglaze Haven (less than 900 metres away) which adjoins Polzeath beach at low tide. Polzeath’s gentle waves make it a haven for novice surfers. You can hire a surf board here or bring your own. 

This part of north Cornwall is full of quaint seaside villages. Head down to the pretty inlet of Port Quin or the lively harbour of Port Isaac just over Pentire headland to the north. Or go south towards Rock and jump on the ferry to the bustling foodie hotspot of Padstow. The two nearest National Trust places are Tintagel Post Office or the stunning Lanhydrock estate.

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 (stated on the cottage's webpage). 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.
