Large manor house sleeping 20 with a hot tub and games room for get togethers with family and friends near St Ives

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Poltair Manor, Penzance, Cornwall, sleeps 8-20 in 11 bedrooms.

Poltair Manor is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian detached country house set within grounds of 2.31 acres. The property dates back to the late 1700's and is set over 3 principal storeys. Access is by way of a private drive through attractive woodland. This is a family house on a fairly grand scale, rather than a hotel - perfect for gathering together friends and family for a weekend or longer holiday.

Pets are welcome; you are invited to feel at home here at Poltair Manor, a home from home. The Manor is surrounded by ancient standing stones, stone circles, wishing wells, historic lands locally, beautiful walks, and the sea is just 1 mile away. This is also an art lovers paradise; the Penzance art school, the Morab gardens and museum, the Newlyn art school, and St Ives with the Tate St Ives and also Barbara Hepworth's home and studio close by. Bring your bicycles for exploring locally, if you would like to.

There are many lovely restaurants nearby too, but to eat at Poltair Manor, with the dining room seating up to 20, is a personal favourite. The kitchen is very well equipped for those who wish to cook, and a murder mystery evening such fun. There are many local firms that will deliver take away meals too, or we could book a chef and staff to organise your special evening for you.

It is amazing how quickly you will feel at home at Poltair; stroll into Penzance, or into the Sportsman pub 300 hundred yards away, and with 4 large supermarkets around Penzance, you can get everything that you like easily. Get the food delivered to the door for you when you arrive, and we can stock the bar and dining room with wine and beer, at cost, so that you don't need to think about that, only pay for what is used.

The sea and beaches are clean and beautiful, with some nearby dog friendly, but not all. Enjoy year round swimming locally and great surfing, with rock pools to explore, paddle boarding, bring your own kit.
