"Large comfortable room with a lovely view"
Our stay was part of our Golden Wedding celebrations and was arranged by our daughters. The owners, Mel and Wendy were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We had the Cream Room, large, well decorated and very clean with kingsize comfortable bed and lovely sea and countryside views. The garden is lovely too and we enjoyed sitting in it admiring the panoramic view. All this plus a card and bottle of Prosecco on our breakfast table on our anniversary compliments of Mel and Wendy!

The Ancient Shipbrokers sits in the centre of the lovely historic village of Pentewan over- looking the beautiful fresh water harbour and one of the best sandy beaches in Cornwall . Please note that we are in an elevated position and walking to the amenities in our little village will involve some hills and/or steps.There are 3 good choices of places to eat right here in the village and many more close-by.

Once the home of the Shipbroker who traded cargoes such as grain, timber, and china clay in the harbour, the house has a lot of history and has been decorated tastefully with colour and imagination to give a warm welcome.

Private parking is available onsite and in the village car park. Help with luggage is provided as part of our welcome.FREE wireless connection is provided. We have ample space for storing bicycles, surf boards and wetsuits.

Wake to the morning song of sea birds, the sight of the busy House Martins chasing insects, and ducks, swans and herons flying past. A large area is given over to wild flowers and trees which supports natural wildlife.A kitchen garden thrives to the East.Picnic benches in the private guest garden can be used for picnics or ordering takeaway food. Wine glasses are provide in the rooms and we will chill wine for you.

The view from the Dining Room is spectacular ,looking out across Pentewan Harbour and the beach ,providing the perfect compliment to our delicious AA Gold home cooked breakfasts. If you feel like a lazy day why not just sit and relax in our pretty garden or on the sun deck whilst you decide what to do. Night time brings along different delights, especially when the moon is shining across the sea ;perfect for those romantic evenings. We also see fabulous sunsets to the west over The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

We also have a delightful one bedroom traditional cottage just a few minutes walk away and right in the heart of the village. This can be used to accommodate extra guests on a self-catering basis
