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.
