Pengelly Retreat is a lakeside holiday hideaway in the heart of Cornwall. This is a place of big skies, flowing water and rural tranquility where swallows dip into the lake and dragonflies dance above the water. We have just two bespoke lakeside accommodations in five acres of private land and lakes offering a relaxing self-catering stay and a peaceful place in nature from which to explore both north and south coasts of Cornwall. This is the ideal choice for couples or singles looking for a tranquil countryside setting within easy access of some of Cornwall's best beaches and attractions.
We offer two beautiful, very private and unique ‘on the water’ holiday properties, both completely bespoke and built to blend into our lakeside location. The Boat House is an architect-designed timber framed house, complete with luxurious double bed, ensuite shower room, smart living area with log burner, large private outside decks - and an outside bath! - stunning views from the huge windows and a balcony cantilevered over the lake. The Sail House is an ensuite double luxury yurt overlooking the opposite end of the lake, with incredible sunset views, a private boardwalk and sundeck, a log burner, a plush double bed, indulgent bath tub and outdoor heated shower to rinse off in after a wild swim in the lake.
We welcome guests to the Sail House to bring their dog with them for a small additonal fee (maximum one dog per booking).
We can also arrange on-site private yoga sessions or guests can treat themselves to a holistic or beauty treatment with our recommended local therapists.
