Holiday Cottages in Penzance & St Ives
The old market town of Penzance with its long sweep of promenade, high stepped cobbled pavements and historic streets is a bustling resort. Scenic views extend across the shimmering bay to the sight of St Michael's Mount rising majestically from the sea. A tidal causeway links it to Marazion, a coastal delight with pretty cottages, safe sandy beach and inland marshland. Further along the coast is the infamous Prussia Cove renowned for the clandestine smuggling activities of John Carter fondly known as the "King of Prussia" and the mile long stretch of beach and dunes at Praa Sands.x
Heading from Hayle, through Carbis Bay to St Ives there is a golden choice of beautiful sandy beaches. Renowned for its crystal waters and extraordinary light, this artists' paradise needs no introduction with visitors ceaselessly returning to its winding streets and charismatic harbour. Looking through the window of the Tate Gallery across Porthmeor Beach you will find the finest seascape of all!
