The Cornwall region

The cottage is in Chapel Street, the oldest street in the town, and only a stone’s throw from the harbour.

About The Chocolate House. Many of the buildings in Chapel Street date from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the cottage itself is an eighteenth century grade 2 listed building. It is listed by the Department for Environment as a building of both special architectural and historic interest. It was built as a fisherman’s cottage in the early 1700s, and would originally have been thatched. The rococo-style ornate fascia has made the cottage a landmark building in the town. It is much photographed by visitors to the area and makes a romantic retreat for a holiday break.

The Penzance climate, being on the Cornish Riviera, is mild and this makes it a good all-year holiday destination. Situated on the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream, the winter temperatures are amongst the warmest in England and similar to those of Nice and Naples. The town enjoys around 1500 hours of sunshine every year, and the quality of light is unsurpassed. This has attracted artists to the area since the nineteenth century.


Penzance has a wealth of interesting attractions all within walking distance of the cottage. The sub-tropical Morrab Gardens are worth a visit. They are home to the Morrab Library, one of the few remaining private libraries in the country. Around this area are many attractive Regency buildings, especially in Regent Terrace and Regent square.

Nearby is Penlee House and Gardens, and within the gardens is a small art gallery with regular exhibitions of paintings and a permanent collection of works by the nineteenth century Newlyn School artists such as Stanhope Forbes and Walter Langley. During the summer, plays are performed in the park. The town’s most famous person is probably Sir Humphry Davy (1778-1829), inventor of the miners’ safety lamp. His statue stands in the centre of town at the top of Market Jew Street, in front of the granite porticoes of the 19th century Market House now used by a bank. From Penzance harbour, ferries go to the Isles of Scilly. Next to the harbour is the Jubilee open air swimming pool, an art deco listed building that opened in 1935. Along the famous promenade is the village of Newlyn with a large fleet of fishing boats in the harbour and a wholesale fish market.

Nearby attractions on the Penwith Peninsula, all within 12 miles, include the picturesque villages of Newlyn and Mousehole , the open-air Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, Lands End visitor centre, St Ives and the Tate St Ives, and the historic St Michael’s Mount.

The beach at Sennen is considered good for surfing. There are several National Trust properties and gardens in West Cornwall, including Trengwainton and Trewidden Gardens. Chysauster Ancient Village, an Iron Age settlement, was originally occupied almost 2,000 years ago.

The old Geevor Tin Mine at Pendeen has a visitor centre. The South West Coastal Footpath follows the coast all the way around the Penwith Peninsula and has several stretches of spectacular walks. A little further away, about 40 miles to the east near St Austell, can be found the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan

"Full of character and convenient location"

Stayed here for a long weekend in February. Had a brilliant time in this lovely cottage which is ideally situated for the town centre, the harbour area, or even walks further afield. Well equipped kitchen, or plenty of places within a very short walk to eat and drink out. Free wifi and lots of information about local area, including events, places to visit and places to eat. Will definitely be going back again
