This delightful and very quirky terraced cottage is owned by the Master of Land's End and is perfectly located in the centre of Penzance.
An ideal base for touring the stunning south west of Cornwall, this lovely cottage is set over three floors with a beautiful and most unusual garden to the rear and side.
You enter into the delightful and well-equipped kitchen and dining area and then into the splendid sitting room, which is full of antiques, many of which were originally in the State House in Land's End.
From the sitting room is a wonderful sun room, where again you will find antiques and quirky features and a place where you look out onto the garden.
Continuing upstairs, there are three bedrooms, a king-size double and twin on the first floor, and a king-size double with the convenience of en-suite facilities on the second floor, which boasts views looking out to sea.
Out in the garden is an abundance of palm trees and sub-tropical plants, which have been established over many years to create a restful spot to relax at any time of the day.
Wander around the town, which is right on the doorstep and you will discover a fine collection of antique shops, art galleries and book shops, all adding to the slightly bohemian feel of the town.
Of an evening you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the fine selection of historic pubs and excellent restaurants and bistros.
In an area well known for so many touring highlights, a stay at this superb cottage can be enjoyed all year round.

About the location
St Ives 8 miles.
One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
