    “What a lovely apartment.”

    Had a great few nights away and this is a perfect apartment. Everything we needed with a lovely cream tea welcome as well. Fantastic views out - spent ages just sitting on the windows with a coffee. Perfect little tidal harbour area - our 2 girls spent ages playing in the water there. Very close to the high street as well. ...

    Had a great few nights away and this is a perfect apartment. Everything we needed with a lovely cream tea welcome as well. Fantastic views out - spent ages just sitting on the windows with a coffee. Perfect little tidal harbour area - our 2 girls spent ages playing in the water there. Very close to the high street as well. For a coastal walk we took a taxi to Lamorna and then walked back. Lamorna to Mousehall is lovely, Mousehall to Penzance is OK as well but not quite so picturesque. We also took the girls (14 and 15) for a longer walk. Parked at Porthcurno, walked back up the road and then to Nanjizal beach (plan to spend an hour or so here it's amazing). From Nanjizal, the SW coastal path is great back to Porthcurno. Very sorry to be home again! Could have stayed for ever. Thanks very much.

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.

Note: There is a step leading in to the bathroom and a step leading in to the kitchen.
