Embrace the vibrancy of Cornish sunsets, the scent of flower-filled gardens and the warmth of flickering flames from the log burner at this luxury modern cottage. Snappers has a contemporary lounge/kitchen/diner with uninterrupted views across the North Cornish countryside with pastoral panoramas to stir the soul. It is one of the seven beautifully converted barns which now form the peaceful hamlet of Penrose Burden and if you wish to book the other cottages here, there is also Butterwell, Goosehill, The Linney, Troutstream and Otterbridge and Jingles. It's the perfect base to explore the North Cornwall coast with Port Isaac, Padstow, Rock, Boscastle and Polzeath all nearby and its central location makes both North and South coastlines easily accessible; the South with its long sandy beaches, historic ports, secluded creeks and the Eden Project, and the North with its dramatic cliffs, quiet coves, fantastic surfing, grand country houses and historic market towns. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers guests a great place to relax, with a cosy log burner and a well equipped kitchen. You can also enjoy a welcome tray of a cream tea on arrival and Organic Trevarno guest toiletries in the bathroom.
There is a fabulous local pub nearby serving great food, a well stocked local shop and Post Office and access to walks over Bodmin Moor. A short walk to the start of the Camel Trail for walking or cycling where you can find the fabulous 'Snail's Pace Café' and also close to local craft at Wenfordbridge Pottery.

2nd New Year at Penrose Burden, would not want to be anywhere else. Love the area, lots of coastal walks, pretty towns & villages, breathtaking scenery. Love the cottage & location, warm cosy clean and welcoming after a day out. Fabulous views. Excellent hosts. Yummy mince pies!
Had an excellent time at this cottage, perfect location for the places we wanted to visit. Would definitely go back here.
Perfect property, beautifully equipped in the perfect setting. We will be returning as often as we can.
We had a fabulous week, the cottage was everything we had hoped for and more! Warm, cosy & so inviting, wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely thoughtful touches everywhere and we really enjoyed the cream tea on arrival.
As always with Jane & Ian everything is perfect. You really couldn’t wish for more. A real home from home. We return home fully relaxed but with heavy hearts as cant wait to come back again in Spring 2020.
We have loved staying in Snappers. There is everything you need and more. The places we have visited have not been too far to travel too which has been great. We would love to come back again.
Snappers is a wonderful, warm and cosy cottage with glorious views. The attention to detail is perfect and the welcome was very warm. Total peace and relaxation!
Really lovely little cottage with an amazing view, better than I expected as no passing traffic apart from visitors to one other privately owned property. We would love to return one day.
Snappers was not the easiest to drive to, but that only added to its charm. A small single storey converted cottage, with one of the most fantastic views I have ever had from a holiday cottage. It was far enough from the others to feel you was by yourself. The owners could not have been more friendly. The fixtures and fittings were all very modern and clean. Perfectly situated to allow us to explore a big chunk of North Cornwall. Oh, and I have to mention the elderly Labrador, Dylan, who lives in a cottage nearby. If you ask him nicely he will fetch a stick from the nearby bushes for you to throw for him.
Beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. Every appliance, large or small, was there ready. The cottage was immaculately clean and stocked with logs (and scones!) waiting for our arrival. The very warm and friendly owner living on site was also a nice feature.
Dear Jane and Ian. We want to thank you for the lovely stat at the Snappers Cottage during Christmas days. We had a wonderful and peaceful time. Thanks to the nicely decorated Christmas tree and the cosy and quiet atmosphere created inside the cottage. We enjoyed visiting the nearby Eden Project (very impressive by night), also driving to the fabulous Port Isaac, Padstow and Bude. It was definitely the right decision to spend Christmas at the Penrose cottages and St. Breward! All the best.
If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it. With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise. The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations. With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days. More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark. When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
