  • "We loved this little house and location."

    Although small it was so light and airy but also warm and inviting. The owners had provided everything we could possibly need and more for our weeks stay. We didn't use our car once we had parked up, the local buses and train took us to the many nearby other places and our feet to some wonderful pubs.

  • "I rented this cottage based on the great reviews."

    Unfortunately, my stay was downgraded due to the lingering pet smell on the main level where the kitchen and living room are located. In spite of opening windows, it never resolved. A good mopping of the woods floors and having the carpet cleaned would probably help. Otherwise, everything worked well and was accurately described.

    Thank you Deana for your feedback. We're sorry that you experienced an usual pet smell on the kitchen/living room floor level. I do actually clean the property myself and am surprised to have learnt of this, having moped the floor boards throughly. The carpet you mentioned is upstairs and will be upgraded over the next few months. Glad the rest of your stay was as described and we will ensure this does not occur again. Wishing you well. Clare and Paul. Property Owner

  • "Awesome property within easy reach of major attractions and must-see areas."

    The house itself was very well appointed with a clean, stylish finish and attention to detail. The hosts kindly left us a bottle of wine, chocolates and treats for our dogs. I can’t recommend this place enough. Parking was a little awkward but we were so grateful to have off street parking in such a central location. Strongly recommend and we would come back in a heartbeat.

    Thank you so much for the great feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Penzance and at Mason's Cottage. We look forward to welcoming you and your dogs again. Clare and Paul Property Owner

  • "Had a really lovely week at the cottage, it was very warm cosy and welcoming, the garage being an added bonus, I would say it helps when leaving the garage if somebody guided the driver onto the road checking for oncoming traffic etc."

    We appreciated the cream tea and wine very much. Beds were very comfortable and in general there was everything you needed for a lovely stay. We just wished the weather would have been a bit kinder as we didn't get to do all the walks we wanted to . But maybe next year !! Jim and Lynda

    Thank you for your feedback and glad you liked the cottage. So sorry the weather wasn't great, so please come again as West Cornwall is a great place to come and visit. Many thanks, Clare and Paul. Property Owner

  • "We had such a lovely time at the cottage."

    It’s walking distance to town and lovely restaurants and the sea. The beds where so comfortable better than mine at home. The neighbor was lovely too. My cousin lives in Penzance so it was perfect for us as we come there a lot and we can’t always stay with her. So we will definitely be booking this cottage again if it’s available. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Thank you.

    Hi Claire, many thanks for the great feedback and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to the cottage at another time. All the best, Clare & Paul Property Owner

    Cofy beds and great shower. Had everything you needed. It was very local to city centre and great addition of the garage for secure parking. Alot of patience is need to enter garage as lane very narrow. Had to move neighbouring wheels bins to get in. Would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends. Great job owners.

    Short ways to the bus and Supermarket. About 15 Minutes Walk to the seaside. Good place for trips around the coast. Facilities were good just the pan was in a bad situation and there a very few dishes.

    Many thanks for your feedback and apologies for the pan. We do provide dishes for the number of occupants plus a couple extra but will take onboard your comments. All the best and thanks for staying at Mason's Cottage. Property Owner

    The only downsides were the low bedroom ceilings (I did bang my head) and occasional noise from the street (it was very hot so we had all the windows open).

  • "I’m sure everyone complains about the parking but i think better information on the size of lane and garage would benefit people."

    We came in a fiesta which isn’t large at all but still had problems. Driving in to the garage and reversing out did us best. This being said Its amazing to have a garage in a small area like this anyway. We love the garage it’s very helpful. The house is amazing, we had the best time and made lots of memories. It’s light and airy, beautifully decorated too. Comfy sofas for chill days are important which masons cottage provides and a well equipped kitchen for making dinners was so handy. Love it. Thanks for our stay.

  • "We loved staying in Mason's Cottage."

    It's a beautifully presented, comfortable, well equipped and homely property which is really well located just a short walk from all Penzance's amenities, shops, eating places, train station, harbour, coastal walk etc. The owners were on hand to answer any queries we had throughout the stay, which was great. The parking is a major problem however and I feel that it should be pointed out that the garage which is part of the property cannot be accessed with a large car (Nissan XTrail). This meant that we had a daily drama trying to load and unload our beach equipment, paddleboards etc with the car sitting at the side of the cottage with hazard lights on, on the VERY narrow road, before having to drive around unsuccessfully trying to find a parking space where we wouldn't get a ticket, or wouldn't get our car scratched (several neighbours warned us of this). I wouldn't go so far as to say it ruined our holiday, but it would certainly stop us from going back to Mason's Cottage unfortunately, as that kind of daily stress is not what we want on holiday. This should not stop people with small cars from booking however, as everything else was absolutely perfect.

    Many thanks for your feedback and it was lovely having continuous communications before and during your stay. With reference to the parking and garage, in Penzance, an old Cornish Port with many narrow lanes. It is very rare to find a central town property with parking, let alone a garage which can accommodate most cars/bikes and watersports equipment combined. We do highlight in the description of the property and our personalised welcome emails, the access to the integral garage is narrow but being the owner of a VW Transporter van we always reverse down this lane to do drop off and pick up. If however people are unable to park in the garage, there is street parking close by which is free. Tickets would only be issued if parking on single or double yellow lines. We also did advise you of the parking situation before you came to Cornwall in various emails. I'm glad this didn't ruin your holiday and we welcome you back to Mason's Cottage at another time.

    Perfect location for getting to places, just had a struggle getting our big car down the tiny alley way to the garage but still managed with a bit of patience and moving the bins. Very rude neighbour further down the street though

    Many thanks for your positive feedback and glad you found Mason's Cottage so homely. I have made a note of the hoover and will now replace and apologies for the shower head. Once again thank you for staying and hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Litter and rubbish everywhere. Parking was very difficult as it was too narrow to get near the garage. So had to park quite a way from the cottage. But we would still stay here again. It was furnished very well and we were very pleased with everything else.

The property

Masons Cottage is a contemporary, terraced cottage resting in the heart of the coastal town of Penzance.

Set across three floors, with flexible sleeping arrangements and within easy reach of excellent amenities, the cottage makes an ideal base for a family holiday in Cornwall.

Off-road parking ensures an easy arrival, before entering the quaint blue door of this delightful cottage.

Clean, white walls and hard wooden floors grace the interior along with stylish furnishings throughout.

Immediately climb the stairs to find a bright and airy open-plan living space on the first floor, complete with dining for four people and a well-appointed kitchen area; rustle up hearty meals or beach picnics with the electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer and ample storage space.

After a long day exploring the coast, sink into the leather sofas of the sitting area, with a rug for two well-behaved dogs to rest on, whilst you host a movie marathon on the Smart TV.

Follow the stairs down to the lower-ground-floor utility/garage to throw sandy clothes and towels straight into the handy washing machine.

Rinse off in the sleek, second-floor shower room whilst your towel toasts on the heated towel rail, before retiring to one of two well-presented bedrooms.

Catch your rest in the king-size room with a TV for lazy mornings under the covers, whilst the twin room is ideal for either two younger guests or a second couple thanks to the zip/link feature; both bedrooms offer ample storage space for your holiday essentials.

With the attractions of Penzance right on your doorstep, be sure to venture along the promenade for fish and chips, browse the exhibitions at the stunning, Victorian Penlee House Gallery & Museum, whilst plenty of shops and eateries ensure a comfortable self-catering holiday in Cornwall.

The local train station puts you within easy reach of nearby towns and villages throughout Cornwall!

Enjoy a day out in the neighbouring Marazion for a boat trip across to St Michael's Mount, an iconic island with a medieval castle and sub-tropical gardens to explore, whilst the town itself has family-friendly and dog-friendly sandy beaches to soak up the sun, play in the sand and paddle in the sea.

Further north lies St Ives, a renowned seaside resort famed for its Bohemian atmosphere; laze along the sandy beaches, wander through Tate St Ives or follow winding, cobbled streets to find plenty of interesting boutiques and cafés.

A walker's paradise, Cornwall offers plenty of trails taking guests along dramatic coastlines with tranquil bays and spectacular vistas from the likes of Clodgy Point and Gurnard's Head.

Journey further south to Sennen, a picturesque, coastal civil parish near to Penwith Heritage Coast, scattered with historic ruins and grassy clifftops.

Hike all the way to Land's End, visit the secluded Nanjizal Beach or discover Carn Euny Ancient Village, the ruins of a preserved, prehistoric village.

With so much to discover along Cornwall's coast, book your holiday at Masons Cottage for the perfect 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.
