House | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

A delightful and unusual first floor apartment in a Grade II Listed building offering a contemporary specification, yet retaining some charming period features. These include double-aspect Georgian windows offering magnificent views across Mount's Bay from the living room/kitchen, and a romantic window seat with original shutters in the bedroom.

Originally the home of a sea-captain, Harbour Lookout is located on Chapel Street, the most historic and famous maritime street in Penzance. Naturally this makes it a popular choice for couples wanting to stay in the heart of town with the best shops, restaurants, pubs, galleries and beaches literally on the doorstep! What's more, Penzance offers plenty to see and do all year round, which makes it ideal for off-season breaks as well as summer holidays. Why not see what some of our guests have said about their stay at Harbour Lookout by clicking the Guest Book link at the bottom of this page?

Ancient maps show that the property was located in the main thoroughfare from the harbour, which was a busy trading area in the 1800's and the site of many of Penzance's most elegant 18th and 19th century buildings. The area is steeped in history, a fine example of which is the famous Egyptian House in Chapel Street. And don't forget to look up at the smuggler on the roof of the famous Admiral Benbow public house. His gun is trained on the nearby Customs House!

The town boasts one of the finest gastronomic reputations in Cornwall and some of the best fresh fish and seafood available in the country. Guests who stay in this bright, well-appointed apartment are ideally placed to take full advantage of the spectacular scenery that the World Heritage peninsula of Penwith has to offer, and the beautiful Scilly Isles are within easy reach by sea or air.
