Naomi - Sawdays Collection Hotel Inspector
I instantly felt at ease and relaxed. I could have persuaded myself I was on holiday after sitting in the drawing room for ten minutes. I didn't want to leave (especially after reading the breakfast menu). The house is full of beautiful paintings and pieces of furniture that are both functional and comfy, a perfect spot for a couple wanting a sophisticated break.

Kirsten and Trevor really make you feel like a welcome guest in their home. From friendly advice, complimentary drinks and even a birthday card on my partners birthday! We felt like we were staying with friends. The house is beautiful and Kirstens artwork gives it tonnes of character. Trevor and Kirsten do a brilliant job ensuring cleanliness and social distancing. Breakfast is out of this world!!Tonnes of choices, fresh local ingredients and perfectly cooked and presented.
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway!. Small boutique hotel , 5 rooms so its cosy, homely and personal. The attention to detail throughout was amazing - advice on local trips and where to eat to umbrellas when it was raining and blankets to have a picnic. Everything was good quality from the pillows, the room finishes, breakfast and complimentary snacks. Gorgeous courtyard garden
Elizabeth - London
Kirsten and Trevor made us feel like personal guests in their home. Beautiful interior decor with the personal touch of Kirstens wonderful paintings around the house. We were greeted with a delicious cream tea and generous breakfast featuring local ingredients was also wonderful. I am gluten free and they made sure I had a GF equivalent of all that had to offer which was so thoughtful. Their attention to detail is second to none. We will be back.

The Summer House is an exquisite residence that is a perfect home from home whilst in Penzance. The owners Kirsten and Trevor are so warm and welcoming and the love, care and attention to detail they have put into the Summer House is really evident. From elegant, tastefully decorated rooms to superb breakfasts, this is a real gem and a slice of heaven in Penzance. Thank you so much of a wonderful stay

Lovely and historic guesthouse in the centre of Penzance so close to the sea. I love everything about it! Very clean and peaceful with a warm atmosphere. Delicious breakfast with fresh fruits, newly baked bread and a wide variety of choice on the menu. Taking a painting course at the Newlyn School of Art I especially enjoyed the beautiful paintings by Kirsten which has inspired my own work.
Thank you so much Kirsten and Trevor for a lovely stay with you, I can’t wait to come back

Cathy – Exeter, Devon
The Summer House is a chic, comfortable and welcoming place to stay seconds from the Penzance Sea Front. Hosts Kirsten and Trevor make you feel completely at home, with a spacious sitting room to relax in, as well as beautiful rooms that provide a peaceful and luxurious nights rest. The breakfast is a cornucopia of fresh fruits, warm croissants and a choice of perfectly cooked options, served in a pretty dining room overlooking the private garden. Kirsten’s art work decorates the walls providing inspiration for guests inclined to visit the local galleries or attend courses at Newlyn School of Art. Recommend thoroughly
