The Dolphins at Penlee

The Dolphins at Penlee Self-catering

The Dolphins - spectacular by day - romantic by night - has been awarded 5 stars from Visit Britain. Not only does the Dolphins boast fantastic views of the cliffs opposite and out to sea and upriver, and an excellent standard of accommodation, it also has the enviable benefit of a private parking space opposite.

The beach is within 300 metres and there are cliff walks nearby. Access into town is easy. It is an exceptionally spacious first floor apartment in a prime position, very comfortable and well appointed. An internal staircase leads up to the front door and opens into the hallway leading to all rooms. The very large, light, open plan sitting/dining room is tastefully furnished and includes a comfortable three piece suite, flat screen TV with home cinema system with DVD and includes some Sky channels. The dining table and chairs are set by the patio doors affording superb views of the river. There is a large balcony and viewing area. The kitchen is fully fitted. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds. The bathroom has a bath/shower and a seperate wc.

Bed linen is included. There is a payphone for guests. There is free membership to Fowey Hall Hotel Spa and swimming pool April - September.

We regret there are no facilities for children under 5 years old.
