The property

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

Penzance was recently named as one of the best places to live in the South West, "packed with foodie delights" and "one of the best-connected towns in the county...

relatively car-free here, with ebikes for hire, good bus routes and trains" (Source: The Times, 26 March 2023).

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 cosy and comfortable 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.

Prepare for a new day by getting some much needed rest in one of the two bedrooms, ample storage for suitcases etc can be found under each bed.

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.

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.
