    “Absolutely beautiful”

    We stayed in Myrtle house for a week on a family trip. As it was during the pandemic we needed a large house with good facilities and by goodness, we found it in Myrtle house. The owner could not have provided any more to make our stay comfortable. The house has everything one could possibly need.

    We stayed in Myrtle house for a week on a family trip. As it was during the pandemic we needed a large house with good facilities and by goodness, we found it in Myrtle house. The owner could not have provided any more to make our stay comfortable. The house has everything one could possibly need. It is a beautiful 5 story Victorian terrace, with all the original features and every possible comfort. Each bedroom has a beautiful en suite with rain shower and the master has a huge bath tub. We did not use the attic room as there was only 5 of us, but it's a bit less accessible due to the ceiling height, and the shower looked a bit awkward to use. The bed itself is a good size though. When we arrived after a really exhausting drive from London during Storm Alex, we found a lovely hamper of luxurious Cornish treats, which were gratefully received. As I mentioned above, we had to spend a lot of time in the house due to Covid, and my elderly parents, so we cooked dinner quite a few evenings and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped. There was also a larder cupboard filled with all the essentials needed to cook, such as salt, pepper, tea, sugar, coffee, oils, vinegar and other condiments. I love to cook and the kitchen was a pleasure to use. I struggled with the gas oven a bit as I'm not accustomed to it but got used to it as the week went on! The only small criticism I have is that the mattress on my bed (the second floor room next to the room with the 4 poster bed) was very soft and I had back pains waking up. However I'm used to a very firm bed so this may just be me. We would definitely recommend this house, it's beautiful great to spend time relaxing with family and friends.

There is a separate formal dining room on the ground floor next to the kitchen, featuring a large mid-century Danish table seating up to 10 and sideboard housing vintage crockery, cutlery and glassware.

High ceilings with original features including a large panelled bay window overlooking the garden and an original fireplace, together with tall glass candlesticks set the scene.

Here you can create relaxed dinner parties with family and friends yourself, or we can arrange a private chef to lay on a feast for you all while you sit back and relax.

There is another double bedroom on this floor, while the top floor features a renovated loft which can be set up with twin single beds, one double bed or the Loaf day beds can be left as two settees.

Adults and children alike, choose to be right at the top of the house in the loft, with its stunning rooftop views over the sub-tropical Morrab Gardens and out to sea, sweeping right across Mounts Bay from the fishing harbour of Newlyn round to the Lizard.

Its charming sloping ceilings and cosy feel is styled with a cool red Ercol armchair, a rocking chair, cheery red and white designer robin wallpaper and warm polished wood floors.

When you’re not making the most of the indoors, head outside and enjoy alfresco dining in your own private garden, boasting mature borders and quirky features such as the garden cow ornament.

Within walking distance of the house you can find everything needed for a day of family fun; whether you’re visiting for one of the town’s famous events such as Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival and the Literary Festival, or you’re simply eager to escape to the soft sands and stunning waterfronts, you’re sure to find it here in Penzance.

Walkers can look forward to exploring the breath-taking South West Coast Path which leads towards the Penwith Heritage Coast, home to Land’s End and a plethora of golden beaches, coves and more.

The iconic Art Deco Jubilee Pool, with a wonderful cafe and well being studios is also just a short stroll from the house along the promenade.

A wonderful holiday home in a popular location, to be enjoyed whatever time of year.

About the location

PENZANCE

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.
