Pencubitt House

Access Statement

Pencubitt House is situated on the southern edge of the Cornish market town of Liskeard. Ideally situated for touring all Cornwall and much of Devon. The house is a uniquely designed late Victorian villa built on the top of a small hill with 2 acres of sloping gardens. Unfortunately, we are unable to cater for children under 12 years, or pets.

Pencubitt House is a strictly ‘no-smoking’ environment.
