About this location
The Cornwall region
West Cornwall has a spectacular rugged coastline and an ever changing landscape. Cornwall is an all weather location that offers something for everyone.
This south west county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular all year round self catering holiday getaway. The North Cornwall area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Perranporth, Polzeath, St Ives and Bude filling with enthusiasts every year.
The most Westerly market town in mainland UK, Penzance has much to offer. A comprehensive shopping centre with a diverse range of galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Penzance is now on a par with St Ives for it's arts culture, with many art galleries and the recent addition to the town of 'The Exchange' gallery. As a very large number of renowned artists live and work - indeed gain their inspiration - in Penwith, it is certainly making Penzance a sought after holiday destination.
Steeped in delightful architectural buildings with all the history to go with it and enjoying one of the longest promenades in England, Penzance is fast becoming known for its individuality, magical scenery and generally mild weather - although it is a pretty spectacular experience to watch the occasional storm!

"Great location in Cornwall"
Clean, cosy apartment in great waterfront location in Penzance. Recommend visiting MIchaels Mount, Mouse Hole, and historic mining sites in Cornwall.… More
Thank you for your comments.
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed visiting the local areas - St Michaels Mount is a favourite of ours, my Dad and Nephew run one of the ferry boats off the Mount so we have a family tie there!
Please do let us know if you ever wish to visit us down here again

"Excellent in every way"
Stayed here during July 2013 and found it to be excellent. It was exactly as described, spottlessly clean and they were very quick to refund our deposit after we left. Would 100 per cent recommend.… More

"Everything the booking information said it would be and more!"
The view was wonderful especially from the balcony.
The location excellent with easy access to town and other areas. Secure car parking was an added bonus
The property was easily accessible but would have liked a handrail on the upper stairs. Premises very clean and tidy although the bed and sofa rather low and not over comfortable. The welcome pack was a wonderful surprise.
Lots of places to visit locally or within easy travelling distance and many restaurants or take aways within easy walking distance to choose from.
All in all a superb holiday.

My mum and I stayed a this place and it was lovely. The balcony makes a real difference as you can sit there and look out to sea in all weathers, we had good weather so were able to sit and watch the sun go down (and indeed rise). It is very close to Penzance station within walking distance so you just get on the train at Paddington and after a few hours step off at the sea and 15 mins walk away from your lovely flat. The decor here is a real wow, bath in main bedroom an excellent idea as you can have a holiday lie in and nice warm bath all in same room. This place has to be experienced, give it a try you wont be disappointed. It has a real feel of "pampering" about it and not to be missed.
