  • "Great location, fantastic view looking out to Jubilee pool and St Michael's mount."

    The upside down living in Jubilee Cottage is a bit different, hence having the great views from the lounge windows. We would stay again. Just a couple of things, these being that, as you do enter the property it does smell like wet dog, very musty smelling. this maybe because the downstairs windows don't get opened very often. Also, thank you for the milk in fridge, but the fridge wasn't on and the door open (with the tea towel still catching the defrosting water), so the milk was not cold. Last point, man working from home in the house behind chatting and looking down at us from his work station into the rear lounge window, maybe some blinds would help the feeling of not being watched. Thanks again for a great stay though.

  • "We loved jubilee cottage."

    The views were fantastic and it’s in a perfect location, so convenient for the railway and bus station as well as everything else Penzance has to offer, which is a great deal. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need we felt comfortable and could really relax. Our only minus point was the duvet on the bed which was a heavy winter one and far too hot in September and very musty smells in the drawers and wardrobes downstairs. However the shower was great and we would definitely return

  • "This was our second stay this year as we love the views and the location,my favourite holiday destination."

    We will be back next year. We did notice that the smell of damp was quite strong down stairs and left the wardrobe doors open due to the musty smell.

    Your comments will be thoroughly investigated . We hope this did not detract from you enjoying your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Jubilee Cottage in Penzance was great, really conveniently located for us to get the bus, mainly the Lands End Coaster, every day to go back to where we had left the South West Coast Path the day before and continue our walk, this time from St Ives to Penzance."

    Despite being at the junction of two roads and the seafront, the cottage was very quiet and peaceful and convenient for buying food everyday in the town centre. It was very clean and well equipped. For four people, the one bathroom might make leaving in the morning a bit slow but this didn't bother us. Our only comment is that we didn't see the noticeboard in the kitchen until we were packing up to leave (it is behind you and you don't turn round in the kitchen as it is quite small with no units on the rear wall). This was the only place that told us about the rubbish disposal. Outside, in the back passage, we found the wheelie bin was full and two other bags had been left on the ground, presumably by previous occupants. The noticeboard said not to take the bin through the house, but the passageway through the next door neighbour's house was blocked by her with three road traffic cones. I think the owners need to be aware of this problem. We also managed to recycle lots of stuff in the large red and white communal bins in the neighbouring streets. We discovered the Navy Inn just off the seafront towards Newlyn and loved it for its friendly atmosphere and good food. We also had a good meal at The Dolphin, which, unusually, has a fabulous page of vegetarian options. If you stay at Jubilee Cottage look out for the wonderful flags hanging from buildings in all the streets. What a great town!!

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are aware of the problem with the neighbour which we are endeavouring to solve long term . We hope this did not distract from your enjoyment of your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Great little cottage but could have been cleaner."

    The bathroom was dusty and there was toothpaste splashes on the window, but other than that we really like the location, the process for booking, payment and key collection was straight forward and the parking was a bit of a lottery but we always found somewhere close to the cottage to park. Overall we would recommend Sykes and the cottage too.

    We very rarely get negative comments on the cleanliness of the cottage. We will take your comments on board and do our best to react positively to them. We hope despite this issue you enjoyed your stay at Jubilee Cottage. Property Owner

    Note the next door neighbour doesn't like the bin access via her back yard.

    Unfortunately she never has , however it is our right of way. We hope this did not affect your your holiday too much. Many thanks for your positive comments. Property Owner

  • "The property itself is in a perfect location."

    It is very spacious and very well equipped. However, on arrival we were greeted by a damp smell which turned out to be the main bedrooms bedding. It must been made whilst not dried properly. It was bad enough that we had to wash it before using the bed. On further inspection, the kitchen cupboards smelt fausty like ithey needed to be emptied and cleaned to freshen up. My partner suffers from dust allergies and suffered as a result of dust coming from the radiator fins which were clogged up with dust and cobwebs. On the whole if the property had a deep clean it would be beneficial and would improve the standard.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We take this seriously and have spoken to our housekeeper who will attend to these issues. Had this been brought to our attention during your stay, we would have been happy to help and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Property Owner

  • "Great location."

    Comfortable, well equipped upside down cottage with superb views of St Michael's Mount, the Jubilee Lido and not forgetting the sea and the prom. Very impressed with Linda who dealt with the warped back gate promptly. However, I was surprised that there were no facilities for recycling. The cottage has easy access to the town, train and bus stations. We found the buses very reliable. This enabled us to do point to point coastal walks. Our favourite walk was from Porthleven to Helston along the coastal path and river. We travelled by bus to the start and returned by bus from Helston. ( We did have a slight problem getting the oven to the correct temperature. We only used it once.) We really enjoyed our holiday at Jubilee Cottage. I felt that I had come home, as I was born in Penzance.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed both the cottage and its location. We have discussed the recycling issue with the owner who has advised that there aren't any recycling facilities in the area. With regards to the gas oven, we haven't received any reports from previous guests that there is a problem. However, the oven will be checked by a gas engineer, to make sure that it is working correctly. We are glad that you were able to enjoy the surrounding area during your stay and hope to maybe see you again in the not too distant future. Property Owner

    The place was spotlessly clean, we were met with biscuits, fresh milk and flowers. It was a really cosy house, lovely and warm. The bed was really comfortable as was the upstairs seating area. It is perfectly located with stunning views. To be able to sit there each morning, feet up, watching the sun come up over St Michaels Mount, the wild water swimmers and the Scillonian and fishing boats coming and going was lovely. Couldn’t recommend Jubilee Cottage highly enough and we hope to be able to come back one day.

Managed to park outside the cottage despite being the Tour of Britain weekend and then used public transport which I would advise anyway. We are thinking of booking next year as we didn’t manage to see all we wanted! Good excuse to return.

The property

Jubilee Cottage is a traditional cottage in a prime position in Penzance, directly on the promenade with superb far reaching sea views across to St Michael's Mount and Marazion.

Set over two floors, this granite stone cottage is perfect for family, friends and couples seeking a seaside retreat.

The reverse level accommodation offers a spacious comfortably furnished first floor sitting and dining area and separate well equipped kitchen.

Downstairs, exposed granite stone walls add character and charm to the bedrooms, plus a ground floor family bathroom.

The bustling town of Penzance boasts a diverse range of attractions and entertainment to suit all tastes.

The town is surrounded by an area of Celtic culture and outstanding natural beauty, with pristine beaches and crystal seas, majestic cliffs and rocky coves, all set against a heather and gorse landscape.

A day trip to the Isles of Scilly by boat can be taken from the harbour and for those without transport there is a picturesque 20 minute train service to the harbour town of St Ives, the inspiration of many artists, writers and poets.

Land's End is a 10 mile drive away and has something for everyone, whatever the weather.

With its stunning dramatic scenery and legendary views it can be enjoyed in sunshine and storms, where you may spy seals, dolphins and basking sharks in their natural environment.

Jubilee Cottage makes a superb coastal bolthole.

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.
