Offering a beautiful, nautical theme within its interior and being perfectly placed for a coastal escape, Mackerel Sky promises to be the ultimate abode for your family retreat to Cornwall.

A pretty, stone-front cottage, just a short stroll from a wealth of attractions, it makes a great holiday home for an action-packed escape at any time of year.

Inside, the sitting room invites you in to settle down on one of its sofas, with its decor being brilliantly themed with delicate maritime touches and bright and airy settings.

The snug/dining room is a marvellous spot to gather together for a home-cooked meal or an evening of board games, or retreat here to snuggle up in an armchair amongst the rustic woodburning stove for an evening of true tranquillity.

The kitchen is of equal delight, with a good range of appliances sitting beneath its farmhouse style furniture, you'll be sure to prepare a much-loved meal in no time.

Up on the first floor you can find three bedrooms, served by the impressive family bathroom with a freestanding bath, handheld shower and a separate walk-in shower cubicle, you can choose how best to prepare for your day in style.

The bedrooms are made up of three rooms, two doubles, and a room with day bed which conveniently converts into a double bed and cot room, sleeping a total of five guests with each room offering bright and airy settings and a snug spot to rest, it's a true delight to return to each evening.

To the rear of the property sits a pretty garden, sit out here with a refreshing beverage in the summer months, with the sauna offering a true haven to retreat to at any time of year.

If you're seeking a spot to eat, take a stroll into the centre of Penzance where you will be greeted by a wide range of waterside eateries sitting amongst its picturesque harbour; take a stroll along the promenade to absorb its wonder, or simply kick back and relax with an ice cream in hand on the town's beautiful beach.

Penzance hosts a wide range of attractions to suit all tastes, with a good selection of art galleries to explore, the stunning Morrab Gardens and a variety of shops to while away the hours, you're ideally positioned for an adventure at any time of year.

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.
