Bar Lodge is a truly stunning place to spend a holiday. Perched just above Loe Bar, with far-reaching sea views - from the high cliffs of the Lizard to the south, right around to the Land's End peninsula in the distant west - and with Loe Pool and its woodlands just behind, you are spoilt for scenery.
And then there is the Lodge itself: built by Captain John Peverell Rogers of Penrose more than a century ago, this distinctive house is approached on a winding track through the woods. Far from any road or other dwelling, the building is magnificent, with a roof terrace overlooking the sea and a multi-fuel stove in the living room. Come rain or shine, this is a breathtaking place.
Penrose estate is home to three other cottages, also overlooking Loe Pool but a little further from the sea is Helston Lodge, The Stables is an apartment in the main house and Whitstone Cottage is on Penrose Hill.

From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!
