Embrace the vibrancy of Cornish sunsets, the scent of flower-filled gardens and the warmth of flickering flames from the log burner at this luxury modern cottage. Snappers has a contemporary lounge/kitchen/diner with uninterrupted views across the North Cornish countryside with pastoral panoramas to stir the soul. It is one of the seven beautifully converted barns which now form the peaceful hamlet of Penrose Burden and if you wish to book the other cottages here, there is also Butterwell, Goosehill, The Linney, Troutstream and Otterbridge and Jingles. It's the perfect base to explore the North Cornwall coast with Port Isaac, Padstow, Rock, Boscastle and Polzeath all nearby and its central location makes both North and South coastlines easily accessible; the South with its long sandy beaches, historic ports, secluded creeks and the Eden Project, and the North with its dramatic cliffs, quiet coves, fantastic surfing, grand country houses and historic market towns. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers guests a great place to relax, with a cosy log burner and a well equipped kitchen.

Reviews

Dear Jane and Ian. We want to thank you for the lovely stat at the Snappers Cottage during Christmas days. We had a wonderful and peaceful time. Thanks to the nicely decorated Christmas tree and the cosy and quiet atmosphere created inside the cottage. We enjoyed visiting the nearby Eden Project (very impressive by night), also driving to the fabulous Port Isaac, Padstow and Bude. It was definitely the right decision to spend Christmas at the Penrose cottages and St. Breward! All the best.

Guest Book Comment - Mrs K,

I love Snappers! Such a beautiful cottage. We've has the most wonderful week in Cornwall. Penrose Burden Cottage are stunning. We've enjoyed spectacular sunsets and cosy log fires. Our favourite beach was Rock - clear water and fine golden sand. Rick Steins Fish and Chips were so delicious. Thank you Jane and Ian (thank you Sam for getting logs for woodburner). Thank you for a wonderful relaxing time.

Guest Book Comment - Mr and Mrs F,

Absolutely wonderful property, so clean and lovely decor, very well equipped too. Great views and good location. Would definitely recommend this property. Was so lovely to go back to each day after being out and about.

Mrs Kerry Pettitt,

If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it.  With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise.  The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations.  With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days.  More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark.  When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
