M5 south to A38 Plymouth, follow A38 over Tamar bridge signposted to Liskeard.

After 10 miles take a left on to the A374 Looe road at the roundabout, 1 mile on turn right on to the A387 Looe road, after a further 2.5 miles at Widegates bear left on to the B3253. (You stay on the same road but the road number changes, that’s Cornwall for you!)

When you are nearing Looe, the Looe Bay Holiday Park is on your left, quickly followed by the Coddy Shack chip shop. Take the next left at the signpost for Barbican, Plaidy and Sunrising, there is a floral display built around a boat on the left at the junction.

Follow Barbican Road for 3/4 mile, passing the Barbican Inn on the right and then a primary school on the left.Turn right into Barbican Hill just beyond the turning to Bodrigan road on the right but before the Spar shop on the left. Follow this road which gradually gets steeper and steeper and narrower until you reach some black bollards that restrict the width of traffic to 6ft 6”, just at the entrance to the Klymiarven Apartments in the trees.

Penwyn is 6 houses down after you have been through the bollards, on the right hand side of the road. The parking is parallel to the road.

We can also offer Self Catering accommodation with the same spectacular view just a few doors up the hill from Penwyn Bed and Breakfast.

Cancellation by the Guest
We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.

In the event of a cancellation up to 14 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival no charge will be made.

For this reason we advise that you take out a suitable insurance product to cover against unexpected costs such as cancellation fees. In addition, we may take legal action, through the Courts, to recover any outstanding debts.

Should you wish to, we will attempt to book you into another local bed and breakfast of the same or lower Visit Britain grading in a similar standard of room(s). Should this establishment be more expensive than Penwyn Bed and Breakfast, we will pay the difference for the first night of your stay. Our liability will not extend beyond these conditions.
