I would just like to thank you for a lovely stay - I feel very lucky to have secured my booking at Snappers given how popular the cottages are. I slept so well in the comfortable bed. Had the weather not been so favourable we would have got to enjoy it even more! Thanks for the goodies awaiting us on arrival and I wish you the best for this season.

Previous Customer,

Had a great stay in Snappers. Cottage was very cosy and comfy and a lovely place to return to after long days out.

Miss C,

We had a lovely week in Cornwall. The cottage was just perfect and the week away just what we needed. It was the perfect base for visiting all of our favourite places ... despite the weather!

R and M,

The cottage was warm and welcoming. Despite the covid lockdown we completed our holiday by sampling the local pub and walking around the area.

C and J,

1st time staying at Penrose. Snappers is lovely, mixed bag of weather but have had a wonderful time. We will be back ... soon I hope.

S,P and C,

Outstanding property in a stunning location. Thanks Jane and Ian - you have transformed these cottages into a dream retreat. Hard to wrench yourself away! We will be back.

R and F,

Second visit to Penrose Burden Cottages. Lovely cottage - views re stunning.

Previous Customer,

Second visit to Penrose Burden! Certainly not our last! We absolutely love this place. Snappers has been perfect, the views across the Camel Valley are amazing! We have relaxed and enjoyed our time here. Lovely to see Dillon the labrador again. Definitely be booking again for next year.

T and A,

Glad to be back after all the events of this year! Had a good and well needed break!

Previous Customer,

Totally gorgeous cottage with stunning views and after the last 6 months just what we needed! Thanks, we hope to be back soon.

D and N,

Great week - mixed weather - plenty of sun. Many miles walked - recommend Stepper Point and Pentire Head, fish and chips in Padstow and cycling the camel trial - great day out. 1st class cottage with everything you need.

The J,

We had a wonderful stay, loved the views really peaceful. Great location to visit north and south coasts. We loved looking out at the sheep and our daily visit from Dillon. Will recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a great week.

Previous Customer,

Fantastic holiday in a beautiful cottage. Days out to Lanhydrock, beach at Watergate Bay and Harlyn. Lovely meals out too. Thank you to the 1st class hosts. See you again soon.

A and S,

2nd New Year at Penrose Burden, would not want to be anywhere else. Love the area, lots of coastal walks, pretty towns & villages, breathtaking scenery. Love the cottage & location, warm cosy clean and welcoming after a day out. Fabulous views. Excellent hosts. Yummy mince pies!

The Bell Family,

Had an excellent time at this cottage, perfect location for the places we wanted to visit. Would definitely go back here.

Mrs Samantha D,


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.
