Pentewan Bed and Breakfast ideal for staying while walking the Cornish Coast path

Pentewan and the area

Thorncliffe Bed and Breakfast was originally owned by Captain Hawkins, when it was a busy port for cargo and local fishing boats. At the side of the garden, just visible, are some steps in the cliff down to the pub where captain and crew could sneak back in! These days, however, guests have to stagger 25 steps.


We overlook Pentewan harbour and the long curving beautiful sandy beach with its variety of water sports - sailing, water skiing, canoeing, swimming or just sitting watching the ever changing sea and sky. At opposite ends of the beach you can access the coastal paths, one to Mevagissey and the other onto Charlestown.


We are within minutes of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden and numerous National Trust Gardens and there are also two local golf courses. We are centrally situated to be able to visit most of the rest of Cornwall.


The pub, The Ship Inn, offers good pub meals and a lovely range of local beers in a friendly atmosphere. Next door to the pub there is Cobblers the village gift shop and round the corner in the village square there is a tea and gift shop. There are also two sailing/water sports shops, a restaurant, cycle hire shop at the start of the river/cycle path and the local garage with shop.
