  • "Great apartment, well equipped and had wonderful views over the bay."

    The bedrooms needed a bit of TLC and the TV needed an upgrade apart from that it was splendid.

  • "The cottage is in an ideal location and great for visiting different beaches and areas of Cornwall."

    Parking is a big issue and for the price of the cottage I feel this should be considered for future guests. The view was to die for but the property needs a little tlc and not as well presented as other properties stayed in. There was an issue with one of the toilets but this was promptly fixed. If they want to take the property to the next level parking should be included and upkeep should be maintained to a five star standard to reflect the price.

  • "We felt that both bedrooms would have benefited from a rail to hang clothes."

    1st room has an alcove ideal for a rail. 2nd room doesn’t require TV so rail could go there. We did have ants

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look into adding cloths rails as you have mentioned. I'm sorry you had ants, unfortunately they can be a problem everywhere during this beautiful weather we having & we do our best to to deter them. I hope you will return to stay with us again.

  • "This was a lovely holiday home and we particularly enjoyed its upside down nature of the building."

    Your view over Penzance Bay was glorious. Found that the commendation had everything that we needed and was extremely comfortable. The owners were great at responding very quickly to small queries we had during our stay. The one thing we could add to make this even better would be to have a small handheld knife sharpener in with the kitchen implements as some of the kitchen knives were a little blunt. It is only a small point. We had a very happy stay, thank you.

  • "The view from the upstairs living area was lovely."

    It was a very pleasing, spacious living area with lots of light. It is not clear from the listings what a busy location it is. Next to two pubs, a restaurant and a very busy road. The pub/hotel had a function one night with loud music up to 12.30 am... Having said that, the apartment was not overly noisy in general. The quality of the kitchen utensils was not great and the information provided in the apartment was poor. Nothing about rubbish disposal, how to use the TV (it was 4 days till I realised it had Now TV), parking or GP details etc. Having said that, we did have a nice time and the view of the sea, Newlyn and St Michaels Mount from the picture window was glorious!

  • "Absolutely fantastic location, the views were superb."

    The apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay. We appreciated all the info about the area. We had difficulty with the Wifi, it very slow, this was important to us as we needed to monitor our business while we we away. We also found the TV difficult to use, maybe a written guide to help? Unfortunately the large fire in the lounge was not working and a couple of evenings we were chilly. The beds were not very comfortable which was a big negative for us.

Offering reverse-level and open-plan accommodation, whilst also being within easy reach of the Penwith and Lizard Heritage Coasts, Bay View is the perfect retreat for a family of four's seaside break.

The property rests across the road from a handy, public car park, where you can leave your vehicle and soak up the sea breeze as your walk to your new home-from-home.

Venture inside to find two well-appointed double rooms on the ground floor, with one featuring an en-suite cloakroom and both sharing access to a contemporary shower room.

Climb the stairs to find a marvellous, open-plan living space that is bathed in light by its abundance of windows that additionally showcase those expansive, sea views; kick off your shoes and curl up on the spacious corner sofa whilst you watch a show on the TV.

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.
