  • "This was our second year staying at 21 Alverton Street."

    We absolutely love the cottage. The location is central to everything that Penzance has to offer. 5mins from the local kids park, numerous takeaways and a 10min walk to the promenade, which has a classic seaside arcade along with fish and chip shop. The cottage it's self is furnished to a high standard, beds are really comfortable and all amenities work fine such as shower, washing machine, toilets etc. If you are staying for the first time I do reccomend bringing some earplugs as the Friday, Saturday night can get a bit loud due to the centralised town location. Overall experience though is brilliant, definitely reccomend this to anyone looking for a small family holiday in Penzance.

  • "We were very pleased with the accommodation although it was a bit on the small side, it was adequate for the 2 of us."

    The cottage was in an excellent location very close to the shopping area with a frequent bus service to other resorts. There was a really nice park within a few minutes walk where we took our border collie every day and then a few minutes further to the beach. It was a most enjoyable holiday and we liked Penzance very much

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and everything that Penzance and it’s environs has to offer. Property Owner

  • "What a delightful cottage."

    Comfortable and cosy and a lovely place to come back to after a day exploring. A short walk to bus and train station if you don't want to drive and and if you enjoy walking as we do there are lots of gorgeous coastal walks to enjoy very close by.

    We are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed your stay, and that you were able to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Property Owner

    Although the kitchen was small it was very well equipped for cooking with plenty of crockery and glassware etc. Great location with the added bonus of a parking space outside. We could quite happily have stayed another week and would definitely consider booking this property again

    Everything so clean and top spec. Brilliant location for shops, pubs, shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Just one negative (but won't stop us coming back!!), shower is very slow and perhaps needs attention. All in all 10 out of 10....Amazing place Helen XX

  • "Cottage was lovely, on arrival it was very clean and had some lovely touches such as fresh bread, milk butter and biscuits."

    Our dog even had her own hand made treats. Sadly we had no working shower the whole week we were there, and for 2 days no water. So our holiday was some what marred by not being able to shower for the whole week. Unfortunately due to a lack of customer service given by Both Sykes and the property manager it took 3 weeks of nearly daily phones calls to sort out our issue. Shame we weren’t able to speak directly to the owner to sort out this mater rather than going through an intermediary.

    Thank you for your feedback. We want all of our guests to have a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday in our property and were very sorry to learn of the problems experienced during your stay. As soon as we were notified by Sykes Cottages of the problems with the shower, we immediately investigated and did everything possible to rectify the problem as quickly as was physically possible. It turned out to be a large water leak, outside the property, which was rectified within 2 days, and which we know no longer poses a problem. Thank you again for your feedback, we hope you will visit us again soon. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our family holiday at 21 alverton Street."

    The cottage was cosy, and situated perfectly mid town and not to far from beach / promenade. The kids loved the play park that was 5mins away and lots of shops & bakers very close. Sennen cove and praa sands both withing 30mins drive ( 2 top beaches). We will definitely be coming back here again in the near future!

  • "We had a lovely time at 21 Alverton Street."

    The location was spot on short stroll to the shops one way , or past some lovely Victorian houses and through a smashing old park to the seafront. Where you can have a coffee overlooking the outdoor Lido what more can you want. Penzance was a great location, ideal for visiting many coastal jems nearby. The cottage was excellent, clean, well equipped with quality furnishings. Workspace in the kitchen was a bit limited but not a big problem. Parking outside the front door was brilliant. We would love to return in the near future, and would defiantly recommend it.

  • "Great little cottage!"

    Really enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend. Property is in Penzance which isn’t the most attractive part of Cornwall, but with its proximity to some of the most beautiful areas such as carbis bay and st Ives, it’s ideal. This location is of course reflected in the price of the property compared to those areas. The parking space on the property is a great luxury, and again makes the ease of exploring the areas of Cornwall a real joy - nothing worse than a long enjoyable day out and returning to your cottage and trying to find a space in the narrow roads of this part of the country, great to have outside your door! Cottage was extremely clean, and had great facilities. Detail in morphy Richards coffee machine and kettle, m&s/Waitrose crockery didn’t go unnoticed. Only negative would be bathroom door needs fixing onto hinges properly, unable to close without slamming which isn’t ideal in the middle of the night. Also, shower is ok, but very basic quality and poor power, so based on the standard of the rest of the property, should and could be better. Negatives small and easy fixes. HIGHLY recommend this cottage. Thank you for a great week!

  • "We’d move into this charming town cottage like a shot!"

    Perfectly refurbished and furnished. Suntrap courtyard at the back. A stroll into the town where the variety of shops was a treat. Just down the road round the corner one of our favourite gallerIes where a good lunch can be had. With fish merchants galore ten minutes away self-catering is a culinary indulgence. The best restaurant In the southwest, Shore, 50 metres away. Just two niggles. There were no instructions for the central heating which seemed to come on only briefly in a morning and then kept quiet! And the operation of the flat screen fire, nothing more really than a fancy convector heater, was a total mystery as its instructions were in a form of English that was incomprehensible. Too fiddly for purpose. Being warm is a top priority when staying anywhere and we all feel cold in different ways. Renters need to be able to fix their own times and temperatures for heating properties.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Penzance, on the Cornish coast, is this delightful end-terrace cottage, 21 Alverton Street.

Resting a stone's throw away from the majestic Penwith Heritage Coast, this wonderful retreat promises a refreshing getaway for two couples or families.

Be welcomed into the bright and airy open-plan living space featuring wood panelled walls decorated in a sage green with white-painted walls above, making this a stunning contemporary base to return to each evening.

This room makes the perfect sociable space to gather with your loved ones and cosy up on the plush sofas and let the wall-mounted TV and sound bar provide the evening entertainment as the electric fire offers a sense of comfort.

Behind this is a dining table where you can gather with your lovingly prepared home-cooked meals and plan events for the days ahead.

The property combines the perfect fusion of character and contemporary with the exposed granite wall leading into the bespoke kitchen.

A compact, but well-equipped kitchen has a range of amenities to assist you in your self-catering requirements and benefitting from added extras such as the washing machine.

Prepare for a new day by getting some much needed rest in one of the two bedrooms.

You will find matching bedside tables and lamps for those who enjoy some late night reading, small dressing tables to prepare for your day in style and wall-mounted TVs so you don't have to leave the comfort of the sheets to watch your favourite morning shows.

Step out to the enclosed courtyard patio area with a table and chairs to offer an alternative dining arrangement during the warmer months with a shed where you can store your bikes.

To keep you busy while you're staying here, the seaside town of Penzance is an excellent choice for holidaying as it provides an extensive range of tourist attractions and lies close to other popular destinations in this bustling region.

The cottage is within walking distance to Penzance Station, Penzance Promenade and Jubilee Pool - The UK's largest and most celebrated art deco sea water lido.

Opposite the cottage is St John's Hall which holds weekly farmers markets, and for a spot of culture, visit the Penlee House Gallery and Museum which has exhibits detailing an extensive range of art.

For some scenic views and walks with your furry companion by your side, venture towards the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens.

Stop off for lunch at any one of its traditional Cornish pubs, cafés, tea rooms, a particular favourite being Fraser's Fish & Chips.

Join the South West Coast Path for all manner of walking and cycling opportunities with stunning views of the coast and leading towards Marazion which is considered the gateway to St Michael's Mount.

At low tide, you can walk straight along the causeway to this tidal island and explore its sub-tropical forests and historic castle.

21 Alverton Street is the place to visit for its grand walks and sightseeing opportunities in Cornwall.

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.
