    “The Spyglass is an exceptional property in a great location with a view from its balcony that belies the rental price.”

    All aspects of the property have been finished to a high standard, it is clean warm and if my kids are anything to go by comfy enough that they don’t want to leave. All amenities can be reached within a couple of minutes walk and if you are travelling without a car the train station is a 10 minute amble. The only downside I would say is parking, Penzance is a nightmare at the best of times and as the Spyglass has no dedicated parking I would recommend the wharf harbour car park as this does have the facility to purchase a weekly ticket at a reasonable price, £42 at time of writing in Nov 2018, is is again only 3 minutes walk from the property.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by 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 is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. 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.
