The property

Resting half a mile from the seafront in the popular seaside town of Penzance, is this charming holiday home, Alverton Cottage Gardens.

Perfectly positioned to explore the dramatic coastline of Cornwall, Alverton Cottage Gardens offers an idyllic base for your next family getaway.

A leafy lane greets you upon arrival, leading you to the private and peaceful setting of this lovely dwelling, tucked away from the main road and hustle and bustle of the vibrant town.

Dust off your sandy toes as you step over the threshold and into a delightful open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a modern, neutral interior and boasting a plush corner sofa, inviting you to put your feet up and enjoy a spot of television after a busy day exploring.

Head through to the spacious kitchen, amply-equipped with all of the necessary amenities, including a handy washer/dryer to freshen up your wardrobe, where the designated chef can cook up a storm for the group to enjoy at the dining table, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outdoors with a seat amongst the greenery in the enclosed garden.

As the day grows darker, unwind with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the elegant roll-top bath, or if you'd prefer, enjoy an invigorating rinse in the walk-in shower, conveniently located on the ground-floor.

You're spoilt for choice when it comes to resting your head in the evening, with three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a super-king, a double and a twin, offering the perfect sleeping quarters for a variety of party makeups.

If you don't fancy doing the cooking, take the short stroll into the heart of Penzance where you'll find a wide range of pubs, restaurants and takeaways, including the nearby eatery, The Shore Restaurant, serving delicious meals prepared with locally sourced fish, meat and vegetables.

Indulge in a spot of traditional Cornish afternoon tea with a visit to the nearby Trengwainton Garden, a remarkable 16th century stately home, surrounded by scenic gardens decorated with colorful flowers and wooded trails.

The seaside resort of St Ives is within easy reach, popular with watersports adventurers due to the offshore winds making for the perfect surfing conditions, where you can tackle the waves yourself with a lesson at the surf school, or soak in the sun from the beautiful golden sand.

There's plenty to see on land too, with the fascinating displays of modern British artistry at Tate St Ives and the quirky workings of the 20th-century sculptor Barbara Hepworth at the Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Venture further afield to the historical landmark of Land's End for an obligatory photograph with the iconic signpost, signaling the most southerly point of land that you can travel in the UK, offering breath-taking views across the Atlantic Ocean from the granite cliffs.

Explore the coast and country of this remarkable county with a stay at Alverton Cottage Gardens.

About the location

PENZANCE

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.
