    “We really enjoyed our stay thank you.”

    The property was very clean we had everything we needed. Loved how close it is to the town centre and very quiet. For the owner - the heating instructions could be improved as they weren't clear & the kitchen tap was a bit wobbly.

The property

Beautifully refurbished and settled into a quaint street of Victorian terraced houses within this seaside town and just a short walk to the harbour where you can take in the refreshing sea air.

The stylish sitting room invites you to recline by the Smart TV in a sage sofa or armchair, where you can plan the day ahead of you.

The kitchen boasts contemporary furniture, housing loads of great amenities to help with cooking a hearty family meal, which can be enjoyed at the dining table, making this a wonderful little social hub for everyone to enjoy. Freshen up in the bathroom enjoying a soak amongst the bubbles, before settling into one of the two bedrooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with tasteful décor and storage for all your belongings.The second-floor king boasts exposed roof beams and a Velux window with views across Mount’s Bay and St Michael’s Mount.

There is also a wonderful study on the first floor, ideal for remote workers.

The town centre of Penzance is just a short walk from the property, so head out into this beautiful seaside town to discover a picturesque harbour and a whole host of pubs, eateries and independent stores for guests to browse at their leisure. Dining options include The Singing Rooster, Hellys Bistro and the Old Lifeboat House Bistro, ideal for indulging in a heart-warming meal out.

Tours to the Isle of Scilly can be embarked on from the harbour, and there are also several small beaches where you can take in the salty air.

Penzance has convenience stores for your essentials and is within reach of several lovely gardens and historical sites, for example Trewideden Gardens, Carn Euny Ancient Village and Lanyon Quoit.

Days beside the seaside can be spent at one of the many beaches, for example Lamorna Cove Beach and Sennen beach, ideal for watersports, wild swimming or simply enjoying the view with a picnic, and there is also the option to explore the beautiful seaside town of St Ives.

Avid hikers will simply love the many trails threaded through the stunning scenery of the Penwith Heritage Coast, with options including Chun Downs Nature Reserve, Bartinney Nature Reserve, Trenow Cove and the Holy Well of St Madron, plus many more scenic locations just waiting to be discovered. All of this and so much more with a stay at The Lookout.

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.
