The property

Dock Cottage is a quaint fisherman's cottage, boasting idyllic harbour views, just off a one way road in the centre of Penzance, Cornwall.

Accessed via a passageway on Chapel Street, this lovely cottage is ideal for a couple or small group wanting to escape to the coast, while also being close to the amenities and attractions of Penzance.

Step inside the property and be met with a contemporary, bright kitchen/diner with neutral decor, wooden worktops and a charming dining table to enjoy meals at, lovingly prepared in the well-equipped kitchen area, kitted out with all the mod cons you could possibly need for a self-catered stay.

Upstairs you will find a cosy sitting room where you can enjoy a movie night on the TV, and the window offers superb harbour views, so you can truly appreciate your setting.

When it comes to catching a good night's rest, you will find bedrooms and bathrooms on both floors, ideal if you're a small group wanting your own space, consisting of a ground-floor single bedroom with large single bed, served by the family bathroom, along with a double bedroom boasting further harbour views and an en-suite shower room with lovely Velux window.

Outside you will find off-road parking for one car just a short walk from the property, as well as a patio area where you can further enjoy the harbour views.

The property is in easy reach of the train station making it a ideal for a car-free holiday.

Head down the passageway to the main street of Penzance, where you will find a plethora of independent stores and supermarkets to pick up any amenities you require, along with a choice of pubs serving Cornish ale and restaurants serving fine food, should you wish to take a night off from cooking.

Walk down to the harbour, where you can jump on a boat and head out to sea to look for a variety of marine life known to inhabit the area, including dolphins and porpoises.

Avid walkers can easily access the South West Coast Path, which runs right through Penzance, leading you towards Land's End and encompassing sights like Lamorna Cove, Gwennap Head and the open air Minnack Theatre along the way.

Spend a day at the beach, also a short walk away, for a family-friendly afternoon sunbathing and splashing around in the sea, or head to the Jubilee Pool for an alternative swimming facility.

Wildlife lovers will relish the chance to explore Trewidden House & Gardens, boasting a 15-acre garden, filled with hundreds of different types of magnolias and camellias, planted originally in the 19th century.

Hop on a ferry to Marazion at Penzance Ferry terminal, where you can access a host of charming sandy beaches, as well as the magnificent St Michael's Mount, with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens, which can be accessed via a causeway at low tide.

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.
