Support for the Mobility Impaired
Ancient Shipbrokers is situated in an elevated position though it is central to Pentewan village.There are 3 entrances to the property , all of which involve steps or a hill.The climb is definately worth it for the views and the secluded privacy, but may prove challenging for some people with mobility issues. There is a hand rail by the granite steps at the entrance to the Guest House. Of the three entrances to the property one is suitable for pushchairs and bicycles, being a sloping path that takes the longer route through the garden.The quicker routes involve a few steps and winding paths. Pentewan village comprises a valley with steep cliffs by the sea. Most houses are built on the hillsides but this excludes the pubs , shops and village Square which sit right at the bottom at sea level.The steepness contributes to the beauty of the village and we are noted as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty . We are also a Conservation Area.

Guest Reviews

Overall rating: 4.8 out of 5
 We had a wonderful stay at the Shipbrookers! We had a room with a view of the sea, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and a hot breakfast every morning. The perfect place to come back to after a long day outside. Mel (owner) was very accommodating to our breakfast requests as well. Always plenty of parking (we parked in the lot at the entrance of the village - 2 minutes from the BnB) and just a five minute walk to the beach/access points to the South West Coast Path.
