Accommodation Info

Penrose Bunkhouse formerly known as Chyvarloe Basecamp is part of the National Trust owned Penrose Estate, and located close to the legendary Loe Pool (Cornwall's largest freshwater lake), reputed to hold King Arthur's sword. Converted from redundant farm buildings, the basecamp is limited to use by conservation and education groups and is surrounded by the dramatic and varied natural beauty of the Lizard Peninsula. There are two main dormitories equipped with bunks, mattresses and blankets (sleeping bags required) The modern kitchen is equipped for groups. The washrooms and showers take advantage of heat from three solar panels on site, and there is an adapted toilet and shower for wheelchair users. The basecamp is heated by a combination of a log burning stove and storage heaters. Separate leader's accommodation is also available.
