TravelPod Member ReviewsCarnson House Penzance
Rob was friendly and welcoming. Had the room downstairs opposite the breakfast room nearest to the main road but had a surprising good sleep. I had a problem with my shower head coming loose from the pipe which was immediate fixed. Breakfast was quite cheap but can't complain as it was provided with the room. Overall friendley staff, great location for a couple of days.

We then made our way to St Ives where we had booked our last minute stay. It was right out the back up a tiny rural lane leading to some old farmhouses. We were staying in a little cottage which had been converted from cattle sheds. Very quaint, stone and beams, with a proper fireplace! We ventured into St Ives for dinner, settling on an extremely tasty Mexican. Mmm mojitos, nachos and fajitas!
People ask if six weeks in India and Nepal has changed us. I think the answer is yes, but probably not as much as we thought it might. Certainly, we have experienced much and learned much; we have had an amazing time and enjoyed (nearly) every minute. We have seen the sights: forts, temples and great palaces and magnificent buildings, but it is the people of India who have impressed us most, both on an individual level and en masse.
En masse is certainly ...
... century. For my friends from Victoria, it’s kind of like a 'Sovereign Hill’ of Welsh history. It is a great spot where you can get your clogs made to order(!), get your photo taken in vintage outfits, eat freshly baked bread (still warm!) and generally get a feeling of what life has been like for people over the past 500 years.
The castle itself is right out of ‘Downton Abbey’- my favourite part was ...
