  • "Mattress was uncomfortable on first floor so we tried the top floor which was better."

    Shame the top floor wasn’t a king sized bed. There is certainly room. No heating instructions No clear instructions how to use the tassimo machine. No microwave which we didn’t need but some may think that’s a given these days. Otherwise nice quiet spot not far from town

  • "The Look-out was ideal for us as we were arriving in Penzance by train and then relying on buses to take us to different sections of the coast path."

    Just a short walk to all transport options.

The kitchen boasts contemporary furniture, housing loads of great amenities to help out with cooking a hearty family meal, which guests can enjoy at the dining table, making this a wonderful little social hub for everyone to enjoy.

Freshen up in the bathroom, enjoying a soak amongst the bubbles, before settling into one of the two double bedrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with tasteful décor, storage for your belongings and the second-floor double boasts Velux windows, roof beams and views across Mount’s Bay and St Michael’s Mount.

There is also a wonderful study on the first floor, ideal for remote workers.

Tours to the Isle of Scilly can be embarked on from the harbour, and there are also several small beaches where you can take in the salty air.

Penzance has convenience stores for your essentials and is within reach of several lovely gardens and historical sites, for example Trewideden Gardens, Carn Euny Ancient Village and Lanyon Quoit.

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.
