The beautifully presented lounge and double bedroom both look out across the bay, with magnificent seascapes bounded by cliffs and rocky outcrops. A small, sheltered shingle and sandy beach runs the length of the foreshore, with a lovely natural harbour at the far end. Passing seals and dolphins are often spotted close to shore. The secluded, fully enclosed walled garden at the rear is an absolute delight. Roses ramble around the courtyard, tubs and pots are filled with brightly coloured flowers and the grass-covered cliffs behind provide a natural backdrop. Pennan is a quintessential fishing village.
