About this location
The Cornwall region
What's not to love about Cornwall? Situated in the westernmost part of the south-west peninsula of the island of Great Britain and almost completely surrounded by the sea, a magnificent coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall's vibrant identity has evolved much of it's historic identity from it's Celtic roots, with everything from shipwrecks and sunken treasure to ancient monuments. A rich culture which breathes through the sites and scenery found throughout the region today. In addition Cornwall has the most temperate climate of the British Isles while early spring flowers, vegetables and other produce demonstrate the mild weather conditions experienced here.
Penzance is situated on the coastline of Mounts Bay, overlooked by the beautiful St Michael's Mount, which is often described as the "jewel in Cornwall's crown". The town retains much of its original character which developed from a small fishing village, and it's close proximity to a multitude of attractions and holiday beaches, makes it an exciting holiday base.
Take a stroll along the magnificent promenade and enjoy the lively mix of galleries, stylish restaurants, shops, cafés and pubs. Penzance is home to three world class galleries, The Exchange, nestled just off of Chapel Street; one of the oldest street's in the town. Penlee House Gallery and Museum and nearby Newlyn Art Gallery. A short walk along the coastal path to Newlyn, you will be greeted by the hustle and bustle of a working fishing town; the heart of the Cornish fishing industry that is still one of the most successful in England. Two miles south of Newlyn lies Mousehole, a tiny fishing village full of character and charm. Famous for its narrow streets and and quaint granite cottages.
The road and rail links surrounding Penzance make it the ideal base to explore the beautiful area of West Cornwall. Getting to and from Penzance and the neighbouring villages is easily done via the A30 and A38. The railway, which reaches London, North Scotland and West Wales, makes it's final stop at Penzance. Just across the road from our historic apartment building is the gateway to the Isles of Scilly. Tucked away, some twenty-eight miles from the coast, the breathtakingly beautiful Isles of Scilly are waiting to be discovered. With long white sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, picturesque little harbours and gorgeous stone-built houses, they are one of the UK's best kept secrets.
West Cornwall has exhilarating walking and cycling routes along moorland trails and coastal footpaths around the Lands-End peninsula and it is a paradise for bird watchers and plant lovers alike. Gardens, both formal and informal, provide a blaze of colour from early Spring through to late Autumn with numerous sub-tropical flowers and palm trees adding to the unique nature of the local environment. The local surfing venues in Sennen Cove and Gwenver are some of the best in Europe, or for those who prefer a leisurely swim make sure you take a visit to Penzance's magical art-deco Jubilee swimming pool, one of the few remaining 1930's lido's located just a stone's throw from the apartments.

"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.
