Press Reviews:-

MANOR MAGAZINE -  "Myrtle House Penzance is not your average high-end holiday rental......Its a tough call to find a place that juxtaposes such inspiring design features and interesting art with a genuinely homely feel....." - 

 

THE ENJOYABLE RUT - "With sea views, designer rooms and immaculate taste, Myrtle House is the perfect home-from-home when exploring Penzance and South West Cornwall......For me, it was like I had always lived here; my favourite authors lining the bookshelves, my favourite artists bursting with colour on the walls, even my favourite off-kilter radio station already tuned in.......Its the care that has gone into every corner, every nook and cranny. The added touches, the cows that crop up on windowsills and surprising places that put fun into the style, the joy in design......."

 

MIRANDA'S NOTEBOOK - "I so enjoyed our family gathering at Myrtle House Penzance, and I can't recommend it enough......I fell for the Master Room, which, as well as boasting very generous proportions, has a large bathroom with an extremely inviting bathtub, in addition to a walk-in shower......All the bedrooms at Myrtle House are beautiful and every thought is given to comfort, with en suite shower rooms for each bedroom and chairs in the windows to sit and admire the view of Morrab Gardens. We were all so impressed by the huge, well-stocked kitchen. I, of course, was delighted with the fantastic collection of teapots and pretty mugs and teacups....." 

 

 

LORNA SYSON JOURNAL - "....restored with obvious love, carefully selecting an eclectic mix of contemporary and period pieces to create a beautiful, yet welcoming, interior, where we can imagine relaxing with friends or family, a stone’s throw from the impressive seafront......The Robin cushion and lampshade were a fun addition to the ultimate loft suite, up in the attic, with its own en-suite shower room, it’s a favourite among kids and adults......" 

 

 

CORNWALL TODAY - "A touch of grandeur......The property over which Myrtle (the cow) stands guard is in a dreamy location, right opposite Morrab Gardens......In summer, these windows give views over the  lush foliage of Morrab Gardens; in winter, the leafless trees allow far-reaching vistas right down the coast to Mousehole."

 

CONDE NAST BRIDES"Who needs LA when you've got Cornwall!.....From the moment you arrive, you'll love its cute decor twists - including the life-sized plastic cow Myrtle who lives in the front garden.....We loved the master bedroom, with its black-and-white palette, hand-printed Timorous Beasties wallpaper and four-poster bed. The kitchen is designed for foodies and cooking-phobes alike."

"I travel a lot and it is important for me to feel 'at home' when away from my own home. This house has the same warm feeling as at home and everything was here to entertain my friends from Australia, London, Somerset and Scotland who visited during my 10 days here. I would recommend 'Myrtle House' to anyone coming to Cornwall. Thank you!" - May 16

Many thanks for the finishing touches with toiletries and a few supplies we could use.” - Apr 14
