  • Description


    I am Debbie and I live with my husband at our cottage with our many animals. Our 22 year old son lives and works at the Guest house.

    We are situated only a stones throw away from the promenade and beach, and with a bus stop located at the end of the road, you can go anywhere very quickly. The town is a ten minute walk from the Guest house, our farmhouse cottage is slightly out of town and is more rural, surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are so many famous places to visit - Lands end, St Michele's mount and St Ives to name a few.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We want our workaways to feel at home with us and become part of our family, you will have the opportunity to learn English and about the English culture, also get a taste of the life in our small town - Penzance, as well as the gorgeous countryside. We help our workaways improve English skills as much as possible, we are a very sociable family and we have a lot of patients to help you speak the language, our main social time is during dinner, we cook traditional English dinners but if you have a meal that is from your country we would love to try it :)

    We prefer our workaways to stay 4 weeks or longer so you get a full experience of our culture, being organised, independent and with lots of enthusiasm is a must :)

    We can help you plan your journey and give you information to find the best way to arrive here.
