The Old Inn


Welcome to The Old Inn

Terraced cottage built in the 18th century in Pentewan.

The Old Inn was used as an alehouse for the visiting sailors to buy their beer brewed on the premises and some say there was a clandestine ‘still’ to make gin out the back, under the cliff! It is now a modern cottage, with 3 bedrooms, large living room, kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom. The roof was raised in the 1960s, and there have been modernisations ever since. With 3 star Visit England status, Families Welcome and a Gold Award, this cottage provides everything you should need for a comfortable holiday, including wifi connection to the internet.
