Harbour Holidays

From barefooting across cool slate tiles in the heat of the summer to cosying up in front of the log fire on cooler days, The Forge is waiting to welcome you whatever the season.

Nestled into the countryside in the idyllic hamlet of Penrose, Forge Cottage is just a short drive from the beaches of the north coast.

Its fresh, light-filled rooms make Cornish country living a stylish affair – think wooden worktops, pendant lamps and quality finishes throughout.

Wash off a day of activity in the downstairs shower room or your own ensuite, prep local produce in modern kitchen, then relax over a chilled glass of wine around the large kitchen table as the evening draws to a close. A real home-from-home. Only better.
