Codna Coath Cottage is in the little hamlet of Sellan, in the parish of Sancreed and lies some three miles west of Penzance. Guests are assured of a very warm welcome and a comfortable stay.

Codna Coath was formerly a small holding, A small herd of Jersey cattle grazed some of the land.  Prize winning Cornish violets flourished here.  A small bed of these well known flowers still grow here.  The older part of the cottage was built circa 1898, the newer part, circa 1975.  Codna Coath has been home to the Pengelly family since 1938.  Now a Shetland Pony grazed the remaining land along with a small flock of poultry who lay many prize winning eggs.


One double bedroom (additional folding bed available) this room also has h & c and a shaver-point.
One single bedroom.
Both rooms have tea/coffee making facilities and radios. Although not ensuite, the guest’s bathroom/shower/toilet adjoins the double bedroom and as there is only an additional single bedroom it is unusual for guests to share except with members of their own family.
A pot of tea or coffee with light refreshments is always offered to guests to welcome their arrival. I cater for special dietary requirements, specifically Coeliac.

Breakfast is a wide choice ranging from cooked English breakfast to boiled, poached or scrambled eggs or continental style with croissants.  If nothing on the menu proves tempting, (by prior arrangement) every endeavour is made to meet with guests requirements.
There is a lounge area in the breakfast room where guests are most welcome to relax during the evenings, complete with a colour T.V.

Cat friendly and dogs welcome
There is a no smoking policy throughout the cottage.

After approximately one mile you will see a sign saying "Public Bridleway" a red & white sign on the hedge with 6'6" on it, GO DOWN THIS ROAD. A little way along this road on the left you will see a lane saying "Sellan Vean" with also a sign saying 6'6" DO NOT take this lane.
