Pengelly Retreat is a lakeside holiday hideaway, located in a tranquil rural location just 25 minutes' drive from Penzance. This is the ideal choice for couples or single travellers looking for a peaceful Cornwall stopover on the way to the Scilly Isles.  Choose from our three unique self-catering holiday accommodations: the luxurious Boat House and Sail House each located by a private wild swimming lake, or the cosy Mill Annexe.  Located in five acres of gardens, land and lakes, we offer relaxing self-catering stays and a peaceful place in nature from which to explore both north and south coasts of Cornwall. Short stays from 3 nights available.  Guests staying at the Sail House or the Mill Annexe are welcome to bring their dog (one dog per booking only).  

The Boat House is an architect-designed timber framed house, complete with luxurious double bed, ensuite bathroom, smart living area with log burner, large private outside decks, stunning views from the huge windows and a balcony cantilevered over the lake. The Sail House is an ensuite double luxury yurt overlooking the opposite end of the lake, with incredible sunset views, a private boardwalk and sundeck, a log burner, a plush double bed, indulgent bath tub and outdoor heated shower to rinse off in after a wild swim in the lake. 

In addition to our two lakeside properties, the cosy and welcoming Mill Annexe is a self-contained apartment attached to the Mill House, our family home. The Annexe offers clean, comfortable and compact accommodation for a couple or single traveller seeking a holiday base in a rural location. 

Finally for groups we also offer the opportunity to rent the entire of Pengelly Retreat, comprising the Boat House, the Sail House and our five-bedroom Mill House. This offers a fabulous and absolutely unique holiday set-up and is particularly well suited to families or small organised groups.

Explore nearby beaches on north and south coasts, the picturesque harbours of St Ives and Porthleven and National Trust gardens Godolphin, Penrose and Trengwainton.  We can also arrange on-site private yoga sessions with a fantastic local yoga instructor or guests can treat themselves to a holistic treatment at therapy rooms nearby.
