The property

In the perfect place for a family looking for a holiday surrounded by the excitement of both the countryside and coast, Mackerel Sky can be found sitting at the centre of Penzance.

A bustling port town with plenty of activity, there's no better base from which to discover Cornwall.

A stylish, stone-front property, venture inside to be greeted by an equally as impressive interior from top to bottom; make your way into the sitting room and take a seat on one of the inviting sofas, a lovely spot for everyone to gather to unwind each evening, or if you're seeking a spot to yourself, the snug/dining room is a true delight, boasting the beautiful nautical theme running throughout the property with its characterful cushions and stylish seating area, here you can curl up into the armchair with a good book as the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the room.

Moving through into the kitchen you can find a good range of appliances in a beautiful monochrome assortment, so you can prepare a delicious meal in no time whether it be a picnic to take out on your adventures or an all-time family-favourite meal.

At the end of each fun-filled day, head up to the first floor to find three inviting bedrooms; the master room is made up of a double bed with ample storage space for your personal belongings, while the other two rooms comprise a double bedroom and a room with a day bed, a lovely spot to relax in,and a final cot room; each room boasting a beautiful nautical interior and bright and airy settings, it’s the perfect layout for a family escape.

When you're not making the most of the dining area outdoors, head outside and dine alfresco in your own private garden, also boasting a sauna, this property provides all you could need to relax when you're not out adventuring.

Within walking distance of the property you can find everything needed for a day of family fun; whether you're visiting for one of the town's famed events such as Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival and The Literary Festival, or you're simply seeking an escape surrounded by soft sands and stunning waterfronts, you're sure to find it here in Penzance.

Take a stroll along the picturesque promenade, exploring the variety of art galleries scattered along the way, before exploring the rocky coves of Marazion, with the neighbouring National Trust wonder of St Michael's Mount, boasting a hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens to explore, it's well-worth a visit.

St Ives is in easy reach too, popular for its fantastic surf scene, vibrant art scene and stunning scenery, there's plenty to discover here, with Carbis Bay making a great stop too for even more beautiful beaches.

Roam the South West Coastal Path to explore your stunning settings on a steady ramble, or choose to kick back and relax from the comfort of your cottage surrounded by your loved ones.

Mackerel Sky is a beautiful abode to base a holiday to the coast of Cornwall.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a 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 it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. 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.
