Discover the many delights of
western Cornwall from a Penzance cottage,
dotted in and around this popular seaside town. Its natural setting
is breathtaking, with sweeping views over the bay to the fairytale
island of St. Michael's Mount. You'll find lots of things
to see and do for all the family and the streets are crammed with
inviting shops, galleries, restaurants, cafés and pubs.
Gardens, art, theatre and more…
A Penzance cottage holiday is a plant lover's dream and the mild climate brings sub-tropical splendour to Morrab Gardens, a three-acre haven in the centre of town. You'll also find Trereife, Trewidden and Trengwainton Gardens just on the outskirts, as well as medieval gardens at Godolphin House. If art is your passion, three world-class galleries await - Penlee House, The Exchange and Newlyn Art Gallery. Have fun at the Golowan Festival, a 10-day arts festival held over midsummer. Browse exhibitions and touring shows at the Acorn Theatre. And don't miss an open-air performance at the Minack Theatre, a spectacular cliff-side venue near Land's End.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of Penzance's working harbour - join a fishing trip or wildlife watching expedition in search of dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks. Other fabulous outdoor activities include sailing, surfing and sea kayaking; plus amazing walking and cycling along coastal paths and moorland trails.
Round off your day with a stroll along the elegant esplanade, then take your pick from one of Penzance's many fine eating establishments to savour local delicacies and, of course, those views.
Lots of good reasons to book a Penzance cottage!
