Great place with old world charm, extensive equipment; loved the conservatory with its bunches of grapes over the table. It is much more like a family home than a holiday let. More space than anyone could reasonably need.

We are so pleased you appreciated the historical charm of this astonishingly grand property which is ideal for family gatherings. Thank you for your glowing review. Sarah, Customer Support

An incredible house and location - walking distance to Penzance (although you may never want to leave the house) and a 20-30min drive to a variety of beaches. We have a fantastic time, the front lawn is perfect for rounders/croquet, and the lounges perfect for a murder mystery evening! Highly recommended....

The historic building and fabulous grounds compensate for the lack of en-suite rooms.

A privilege to stay in a house saturated by history Close to amenities and the beach with the bonus of one’s own oasis of peace and quiet

First trip to Nancealverne House (June 2022) Very well situated just off A30. Lots of lovely grounds to wander around including a market garden to see and circular walks. The House has a lovely aspect, you can watch foxes on the field at night just past the lawn. Garden to the side with summerhouse/ bbq is the one to use. The House is the upper floor plus the staircase down to a stately room- we just closed off the stairgate and lived on the one level, using the side entrance, up a flight of steps (only door you can lock). It's a spacious place with good areas for eating, tv watching, reading etc. Beds were exceptionally comfortable (all with mattress toppers) and house was very clean with every utensil and even a coffee machine! Nice older furniture and not too many trinkets to break so you weren't on edge all the time with little ones! We had also booked Apple Loft and asked for the connecting garden gate to be opened so was easy access. Would recommend and definitely return. ...
