The West Country region
This far west is blessed with one of the mildest climates in the country. The first spring daffodils are picked on the Isles of Scilly each year. Here we are also steeped in history, from shipwrecks and sunken treasure to ancient monuments and amazing historic buildings! Lands End is a stone's throw away with its rugged cliffs and tales of mystery of the lost 'Land of Lyonnesse' buried under the waves.The sea is all around with coves and cliffs at every turn.
Penzance is a busy market town in its own right, but not far away you have the city of Truro and the sailing capital Falmouth, each have main high street shops to cater for your shopping needs. Fabulous beaches are everywhere including Sennen, Praa Sands, Marazion and St Ives which is an magnet for artists as the home of the Tate Gallery, as is Newlyn with Newlyn School of Art. The Eden Project is 3/4 hour drive away and is a must.
We have lots of Interesting National Trust properties including the famous St Michael's Mount (described as the jewel in Cornwall's crown) and Lanhydrock House. Penzance also has its own Golowan festival 'Mazey Day' at the end of June. You can take a day trip to the Isles of Scilly on 'The Scillonian'. The terminal and ticket office is just 300 metres away.

"Right on the Harbour"
This is a wonderful property right on the harbour in Penzance, affording a good view of activities on the docks. It is very easily accessed from the train station - a direct walk along the harbour. … More

"Great place to stay in the heart of Penzance"
Lovely apartment, with some great details such as exposed beams and wooden floors. Very handy to have the restaurant in the same building but also a good location to get to other restaurants in Penza… More

"A well-appointed contemporary apartment in a perfect harbourside location."
The Sail Loft was perfect for our last-minute holiday. The location was just what we were after: sited by the harbour, it was within a few minutes' walk of the centre of Penzance, and a short drive to places like Mousehole and St Michael's Mount. There was therefore so much to do, and something rather different from the rural cottages that we have stayed in in the past. We weren't necessarily after somewhere quiet and isolated, so it was nice to be close to so much activity.
The Sail Loft is furnished to a high standard and has a modern feel. It was lovely to throw open the large doors overlooking the harbour and listen to the hustle of the boats coming and going. My son spent ages watching the freight being lifted onto the boats bound for the Scillies.
We loved it, and we'll definitely go back.

"Nice apartment shame about the location"
The apartment is clean and modern and the owner can't do enough to make you welcome but the place is let down by the noise from the very busy road and the view over the commercial dock leaves something to be desired. On the plus side the restaurant in the building is excellent, the food is good, the staff are friendly and residents are offered a discount.

"Immaculate accommodation for West Cornwall"
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights from April 12th with our two children. Having had mixed experiences of apartments in Penzance in previous years, we were amazed at how spotlessly clean the Sail … More
