In one of the most historic parts of Penzance, tucked away off the famous Chapel Street, is this semi-detached two bedroom granite-faced house. Church View is an immaculately presented property with a comfortable, modern and spacious interior spread over two floors. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room leading out to a very private patio garden and from the first floor sitting room there are lovely views across Mediterranean inspired gardens to the church beyond.

Holidays in Penzance

On a sunny day, St. Michael’s Mount, Mount's Bay and Penzance seafront might be mistaken for the Mediterranean making holidays in Penzance a jet-set-style holiday you can enjoy without climbing on a plane.


Sitting in the corner of a sheltered and attractive bay, the UK’s most westerly town has been a popular resort since the Napoleonic wars when the wealthier English people were cut off from the continent and searched closer to home for fresh air and the newly discovered benefits of sea-bathing. The temperature in Penzance is always a little warmer than elsewhere meaning sub-tropical plants grow well in Morrab Gardens and in the gardens on St. Michael’s Mount. It also means balmy days on one of the nearby beaches are always calling.

Penzance is great for short breaks out of season and there are many boating trips from the harbour that will take you to explore the West Coast from the sea. Due to its excellent road and rail links, Penzance holidays offer something for everyone with lots to see and do. It’s also within a stone’s throw of some of the prettiest places to visit in Cornwall, which are always worth exploring during your stay.

Penzance has secret treats too if you take the time to explore. For a start, the very best way to see Penzance is by the alleys and walkways, the through-lanes from here to there. Take a day to discover the town this way and you will uncover its beautiful parks as well as its Regency and Georgian architecture. 

Penzance also benefits from a wonderful community and comes alive throughout the year with different events and traditions that add waves of colour and music to the seaside town.

Did you know...

Penzance has one of the mildest climates in the UK!

Beaches in and near Penzance

With Mount’s Bay providing a beautiful alcove of beaches and the surrounding Penwith coast showing off exactly what west Cornwall has to offer, beach days in Penzance are always on the agenda.

Longrock Beach – Nestled halfway between Marazion and Penzance, this long stretch of sand is great for families. The water remains quite shallow, making it ideal for those who aren’t confident swimmers as well as windsurfers.

Marazion Beach – There are few views from the beach as impressive as Marazion where your beach day benefits from the impressive St Michael’s Mount standing guard over the bay. Stroll across the causeway at low tide, explore the rockpools or tuck into a fish and chips on the rocks.

Perranuthnoe Beach – With a beach café that serves delicious homemade cakes and ice creams, and a ramp for easy access, Peranuthnoe is popular with locals and visitors alike. The expanse of sand, which is second to none for sandcastles, means there’s plenty of room for everyone.

Places to visit near Penzance

Stay in a self catering cottage in Penzance and you’re perfectly situated to explore the surrounding towns and villages, each with their own individual characters and charm. Literally minutes from Penzance is the fishing port of Newlyn while a little further on you’ll find the quaint village of Mousehole with its harbourside bistro, community atmosphere and famous Christmas lights. Take a stroll along the coast to Marazion beach or venture in the opposite direction to the beautiful Lamorna Cove. For more ideas, check out our blog post on days out around Penzance.

Things to do in Penzance

Jubilee Pool

This beautiful art-deco open-air bathing pool is the UK’s largest seawater lido. There is also an excellent café and a delightfully warm geothermal pool. The pool opens from the end of May until September. Even in winter, some hardy year-round swimmers use battery rocks (just north of Jubilee Pool) for their daily dip!

Parks and gardens

Morrab Garden is a sub-tropical garden in the heart of Penzance with Victorian fountains and a bandstand, which still plays host to concerts in the summer. The Morrab Library sits in the gardens and is an absolute joy with its wonderful photographic archives and collections. Full of trees and squirrels, Penlee Park has a specific dog-free and child-friendly play area making it ideal for families.

Art galleries

Penlee House Art Gallery & Museum (with an excellent café) sits opposite the Penlee open-air theatre and is home to a large collection of Newlyn School paintings as well as more contemporary works. Along the various streets and alleys lie many other superb galleries featuring a mix of local and national artists. Further afield, you have the renowned Newlyn Exchange and the wondrous Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, which is home to many incredible sculptures throughout its grounds. Or, if you want to create your own art, why not embark on one of Penwith’s popular painting holidays to really make the most of Cornish scenery.

Shopping in Penzance

Not all town centres have the beautiful granite terrace and arcade steps, the iron railings; or retain the architecture of previous generations above the modern shop frontages that Penzance enjoys. There are many Georgian and early Victorian facades just above eye-level in Penzance giving a really unique backdrop to your shopping. By way of shops, you’ll find everything from boutiques to big names as well as delis and food shops that are jam-packed with tempting, locally sourced treats.


Penzance, with its recently resurfaced prom and surrounding coastline, is perfectly placed to enjoy some stunning Cornish walks. The further to the west you go, the more rugged and captivating the coastline – although be warned, in Penwith, the more beautiful the view, the steeper the trek to reach it! Our favourite stretch has to be between Mousehole all the way along to the Minack Theatre, which provides days upon days of incredible coastal walks. During your treks, make sure to keep an eye out for some of Cornwall’s ancient sites, which can be found scattered around the wild landscape.

Eating out

Penzance self-catering holidays are perfect; Chapel Street leads up from the harbour to the town centre where you will find a range of restaurants and pubs as well as independent shops and houses of historic interest and importance. Lavenders Deli on Alverton Street is ideal for stocking up on treats for your holiday cottage. Check out our blog on places to eat in Penzance for ideas on where to refuel.

Dog-friendly Penzance

With the sights and smells of the nearby beaches and plenty of dog-friendly pubs (Admiral Benbow is particularly popular with dogs and people alike), Penzance is a wonderful place for a dog-friendly holiday in Cornwall. There are also some great dog-friendly beaches nearby so you can enjoy a proper romp in the sand with your furry best friend.

Events in Penzance

Golowan Festival – Happening every year towards the end of June, Penzance’s Golowan Festival (also known as Mazey Day) is a bright and cheerful celebration of midsummer and promises an array of colour, music and festivities. Watch the parade of intricate puppets that dance through the streets, cheer on the Morris dancers and browse your way through the collection of stalls that sell everything from jewellery to mouth-watering foods.

Penzance Literary Festival - One for all the bookworms out there, the Penzance Literary Festival in July celebrates words in all forms from written to spoken to sung! Come along and catch the many performances, take part in literary discussions and even try your hand at creating your own stuff with the many workshops that take place.

Christmas in Penzance – With Christmas lights turning the whole stretch of coast between St Michael’s Mount and Mousehole into a glittering display, a jovial walk (or drive) is always a great way to get in the festive spirit. In town, you’ll find shop windows awash with intricate displays that tie in with a chosen theme as businesses from all over the town take part in an annual Christmas competition to dazzle shoppers. Santa never misses Penzance when doing the rounds, as you can always find him sitting happily in his grotto during the light switch on. Fairs, processions, and costumed antics take place throughout December, so you’re always in for a spectacle or two when you visit at Christmas.


Getting around

Literally at the end of the line, Penzance is well-placed for holiday makers that prefer the train to a car. For those wanting to tour Mount’s Bay on foot (or on two wheels), there is a superb path that runs right the way along from Marazion to Mousehole, making excellent use of the promenade in Penzance. You can often find food vans along the prom, allowing for a quick refuel with a view during your jaunt. For those with a car, there are numerous car parks around the town as well as in the surrounding villages so you can enjoy Penwith by foot, car, bike or even boat!

Nicely situated in narrow road off Chapel Street.

Convenient situation.

Clean very comfortable and well appointed.

Above all, very quiet.

Impossible to fault Church View. A superb flat. We have been before & will visit again. Very comfortable, clean, well-equipped & cosy. Also useful having a lock up garage.

Church view is a really lovely upside down cottage. It has such thick walls it makes it feel extra cosy. It was really nicely decorated, and the bed so was so comfortable it made it hard to get out of it. Lovely appointed kitchen diner and in warm weather the little outside area would be lovely to relax in. Nice view over gardens out the living room window. Brilliant bonus is the garage as parking in Penzance is difficult. Very close to the pubs, shops and sea front.

Great property in a convenient location. Garage is really handy too as parking is a bit of a struggle round the area. Loved the welcome hamper. Perfect base to explore the area.

Cottage had everything one might expect and more. Very comfy and clean, and handy for the town and the seafront. Cosy beds and tasty welcome pack.

Perfect holiday in Penzance. The property was excellent with great amenities and an outstanding location. We have already booked again for next year. Aspects holidays are a great company.

Fantastic location with the added bonus of parking. Courtyard garden is a little sun trap which was an additional bonus. Ideal location for using either the buses or trains to explore the local area and very cheap too. The train into St Ives via St Erth is a must. No hassle with parking at the other end and the views from Lelant and Carbis Bay are stunning.

Accommodation excellent, very clean and well equipped. 5min walk to town. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Well worth the money

Everything you need is supplied - and a few extras too, like the basket of goodies on arrival and two big umbrellas by the front door! I enjoyed the view of the church from the sitting room and wish I had had enough sunny weather to spend more time in the private patio area. Everything very clean and well maintained. All in all, a lovely stay.

We are just home from a really good week in Church View. The location is great for both seafront and town centre. The house is very clean and well equipped with a good kitchen/diner. Having the garage was a plus along with the pretty courtyard area for sitting out.

We love Penzance and this is the best property we have stayed in there.

Church View is a wonderful home from home. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and perfectly placed in Penzance. The outside space is actually better than the photos show. Having the attached garage was a huge bonus, not having to worry about finding a parking space. The kitchen is spacious and extremely well equipped, although the addition of a coffee machine would be nice. Would highly recommend and if we came back to Penzance we would love to stay here again.

I had a lovely short break at Church View in Penzance .

It was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The integral garage was really useful, although I only had a bike !

Superb apartment, clean & well equipped. Peaceful location. Garage was very useful. The kitchen is on the ground floor & everything else on the first floor. We would love to stay again.

Definitely a home from home place, couldn't fault it at all. Well positioned for town or seafront, plenty of eateries in the area, and added bonus of parking in the garage.

Lovely, well equipped cottage right in the heart of Penzance, steps away from everywhere we wanted to go in the town.

Having the garage for the car was an added bonus.

The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped; even cling film, foil, laundry and dishwasher tablets were provided. The location was excellent being only a few yards from Chapel Street where there are several restaurants, pubs and a small Co-Op. It was only a 10 minute walk to the bus/train stations. There was a generous welcome pack. Would definitely book again.

Church View was a fabulous home from home during our stay in Penzance. It’s ideally located for the promenade and historic Chapel Street. I loved having Baker Tom up the street, discovering new artists at Chapel Street Art, and popping in for a pint at the Admiral Benbow. Newlyn is only a 20 min walk away, so we were able to enjoy super-fresh seafood. The home was perfect for the 3 of us (me, hubs and our 15 year old), with a fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of space so we weren’t on top of each other. It was so nice to have access to parking with the integrated garage. Even though so much is on the doorstep in Penzance, it was nice to be able to drive further afield and know you’ll have a parking space when you return. It was our first time staying in Penzance as a family - we’ll definitely be back.

church view is a great place to stay if we have another holiday in Penzance we wold hope to book this place again

Very well presented cottage in a good part of town which is very quiet.The property has everything you would expect and much more. Reasonably close to the bus and rail stations and there are good restaurants near by.

A very nice touch by the owner is a welcome basket with bread, milk and delicious scones with jam and cream.

Great place to stay in Penzance, central location but very quiet. Spotlessly clean and everything you need for a comfortable holiday. There was a problem with a neighbour parking over the garage entrance. We didn’t use the car much but if you want to use your car everyday, it could be a problem.

Ideal location, good quality comfortable house which we quickly made into our home. Great welcome pack which meant we could unpack and explore the surroundings. Perfect secluded and secure patio area. Loved the automatic garage door and ease of having parking with an integral door to the house. Highly recommended.

We love Church View and I’ve actually lost count as to how many times we’ve visited. The house is warm, cosy and welcoming - the garage is such an added bonus, too. Penzance is just great as a base for so many wonderful places in the far west of Cornwall - and if you don’t want to drive, the station and bus station are a short walk away. Thanks to all who keep Church View so lovely!

Comfortable, clean and really great location – handy for shops and the harbour with interesting pubs & little shops just up ‘n down the road.

Lovely well equipped house, situated in a lively area of Penzance. The only drawback for us was the level of noise around the area. For anyone younger who wants to be out enjoying the historic pubs it would be a perfect spot.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you liked this property, even if the location wasn't perhaps quite right for you. Being right in the town there may be the risk of hearing some of the hustle and bustle, though with the property being set back from the main, busier streets, this generally isn't something that causes too much disturbance. It may depend on what is taking place in nearby venues at the time. We hope that you agree that its location is absolutely worth any risk of this, to be just a stroll from everything that Penzance has to offer. We hope that you enjoyed your time here and that we will see you back here in Cornwall again soon! Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent location for swimming dining and taking in the wonderful cornish sites. Near to great pubs and shops. May not have a sea view but the tranquility of the church and sunrise makes up for it. Will definitely book again this year. Oh zip together bed needs to go though and be replaces by a double one.

Great location and property was fabulous will definitely book with aspects in the future

we have stayed at Church View before and enjoyed our time there very much ( this is our 3rd time)

Mike and Marilyn Jubbie

The cottage was very clean, comfortable and equipped to a high standard, and the welcome pack was much appreciated. The integral garage was very useful as we didn’t have to worry about parking.

Highly recommend cottage, close to amenities. Really clean. And lovely welcome pack.

Beautifully equipped cottage in the heart of old Penzance. All we could wish for was provided in this tastefully decorated holiday home. We were grateful for gift of local bakery items, milk and tea bags supplied for our arrival. Garage was a great asset in an area where parking is limited. Would love to come again.

This was our second stay at Church View and the excellent standard of cleanliness had been maintained. The property is in a great location, close to the centre of Penzance but tucked away off the main street. It is spacious and well equipped with a private garage and courtyard. As before, a basket of goodies was awaiting us on arrival, plus milk in the fridge and a small supply of coffee, tea and sugar. All cleaning and washing up items are supplied.

The Artists Residence pub garden is just over the road opposite the property which is handy for a welcome drink and a bite to eat although a bit pricey and a little noisy later in the evening.

We have had excellent service from this company over 5 years. Their properties are excellent and we can't praise them enough. Well done Aspects and keep up the good work . Can't wait to return next year.

Church view was a perfect place to stay in the present circumstances, a short break to visit family. The cottage had everything we needed, well equipped, clean & we felt safe. The integrated garage was a bonus & I’m sure we will stay in the future.

Maggie , Gloucestershire

Nice little house tucked away but in the centre of everything. Good places to eat in the open while social distancing. Picnics in the churchyard with views of the sea. Lunch in The Artist Residence lovely courtyard, and in the garden behind The Yacht. Coffee at the Jubilee Pool Cafe. Walks to Newlyn for tea and cakes outside the Gallery, and bus to wonderful Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Car definitely not needed.

Excellent location, well appointed accommodation, very well built. We had a lovely holiday and would happily go back again Thanks

We really enjoyed our stay at Church View, where we were able to relax and rest in its calm comfortable setting. We didn’t meet the owners but they made us feel very welcome , leaving us local produce and a welcoming note. We will definitely try to book it again !

Lovely central location very clean and a garage for parking will stop there again

We had a lovely week at Church view. The view of the church is quite spectacular from the upstairs lounge window. The property is well maintained and obviously well loved by the owners. We met the owners as we were a little bit late leaving on departure. They are a lovely couple and even offered us a lift to the station. We arrived late in the evening and the fridge was stocked with milk, jam, butter, cream which we thought was a lovely touch. On the table in a lovely basket was local bread, scones and biscuits. We were a bit surprised to find the lounge upstairs. We ate downstairs but carried drinks upstairs on the tray in the kitchen. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. There isn’t anything I can think of that wasn’t provided. The little courtyard would be perfect to use on a dry Spring/summer evening. We didn’t have great weather but it didn’t spoil our holiday. It was lovely to come back to church view to chill out of an evening. We made use of the games in the lounge. Very good WI-FI which is a bonus. The Taj Mahal Indian (2 mins walk towards promenade) was our favourite. The owners were super friendly and the meals we had were perfect. Penzance itself is a really nice town. We made use of our weekly bus ticket that we downloaded and went out and about. Didn’t want to come home and will definitely come back. Thank you church view.

Our second stay at this delightful accommodation. Very well equipped and comfortable. Perfect location and near to all the amenities

This was our second stay at Church View and it was just as wonderful as the first time, excellent accommodation in a great location and not forgetting the helpful staff at Aspects.

Lovely cottage. Beautifully decorated. Fully equipped. Within walking distance of several places to eat. Great base to explore from.

Excellent location near to shops and the beach. Garage has an integral door so easy to load and unload the car into the house. Kitchen is big and well stocked. Both bedrooms are well furnished and the beds are very comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

friendly staff at aspects holidays very efficient as usual. we will book with them again.

We had the best holiday ever at Church View. The accommodation was so comfortable we wanted to stay longer, so for that reason we have already booked it again for next year.

We were initially very impressed with Church View. Spotless, comfortable and well equipped. Garage very handy too. This was overshadowed however by ongoing building works either side of the property, which caused major disruption. From early in the morning we were treated to a barrage of noise, ranging from workmen shouting, drilling, hammering & sawing to an entire pub/hotel roof’s worth of tiles thundering down a chute. We also had our access regularly blocked by works vans being illegally parked in front of the garage and front door. This continued throughout the week, although the Aspects staff offered us a goodwill payment of £50 we would much rather have been warned about potential disruption & had the opportunity to book an alternative location.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry to hear of this and as discussed at the time, we would again like to reassure you that had we been aware of any work due to take place that would cause a disruption to a guest, we absolutely would have been in contact so that you could have made an informed choice before arrival. Unfortunately neighbouring residents will not always inform us of works, so we try to monitor for anything popping up like this but this was not one that we any knowledge of and we were genuinely very sorry to hear of the disturbance and inconvenience. Now being aware, we have been in regular contact with the property owner and builders, who have confirmed that all noisy work will be complete before the next booking, and most of the vans will no longer be there. We will continue to monitor this closely though until it has been fully completed. Once again, we are very sorry and thank you for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Services

I loved staying at Church view with it's proximity to the town centre and the fact it has a garage. The owners left a basket of goodies ie milk, bread, biccis and cream tea ingredients to whet the appetite.

It's a lovely home from home and I was very comfortable there. It has everything you need, from maps and brochures about where to go/what to do etc plus a good selection of books/dvds if you're unlucky enough to be stuck indoors due to the inclement weather.

Every thing was First Class, Can not add anything other than what is stated

Beautiful comfortable house in the centre of town but in a very quiet location. Everything had been considered to make our stay perfect and therefore it was no surprise when the owner gave us a lift to the railway station on our departure because we were running late. Thank you very much for your kindness.

Well placed location. Very nice court yard and private.

An excellent comfortable cottage, well equipped and with garage parking.

Very comfortable, clean and tidy

Our third stay at this property. It is an excellent location and a really comfortable place to stay with the added bonus of a garage, so no worries about parking. During our holiday week we called into the office to say that there was a problem with the toaster which was blowing one of the fuses. We said that it wasn’t a problem because we could use the grill instead, just wanted to report it so it could get fixed at some point. By the time we got back to the property it had been replaced - what an amazing response! Superb location, really convenient for everything in Penzance. Well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Very warm and cosy. The garage is a real bonus and means no worries about parking. This is a very minor point - the main bedroom had two single mattresses put together to form a king, one side had a creaky base and a twangy spring in the mattress, the other was fine.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; it was lovely to see you back here. Thank you for letting us know about the mattress; we will pass that information on and will monitor any further feedback on that for now. Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent cottage with everything you could possibly need for a good holiday.

Church View perfect comfortable holiday home, the property was just 'waiting for us to arrive'; great location for exploring the area on foot or using public transport including ferry to Scilly Isles

drive into garage only forward

A fantastic stay in an ideal location for exploring west Cornwall. We would happily return to church view for any future visits to this beautiful part of the country.

Thank you for the Cornish Products Hamper, given by Aspects due to washing machine problems on last visit. Much appreciated.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

You are very welcome. Sorry that you had so many problems with the washing machine last time, and hope you had a great time here this year. Tanya, Customer Services

Cottage very clean and well equiped, garage an added bonus. Location good for day trips to other areas of Cornwall.

Church View is a private, quiet town centre property finished to a very high standard in an excellent location in a great town.

Second stay at Church View. Lovely, well equipped property in a fantastic location.

A very comfortable cottage in a great location with the added benefit of a garage.

A comfortable, well-equipped property in an excellent location.

Church View is a tranquil location in a busy and exciting town. It is close to the best pubs, restaurants and shops in Penzance and when you close the front door I felt very much at home.

Lovely cottage perfect location. Ideal for all ages, close to amenities and travel links. Extremely comfortable and well equipped. Garage parking was excellent feature too

Fab cottage - very clean, comfy and well situated - two minute walk into town, five minutes to beach/prmenade, but down a quiet side street. We felt very welcomed by the owners who left us a welcome pack - thank you.

Comfortable cottage convenient for railway/bus station, shops, pubs and restaurants, but also quiet and private.

Lovely cottage in a good location for exploring Penzance. Clean, modern and had everything we needed.

Church View is a really lovely property. It is decorated tastefully and is left very clean and tidy.
