Penzance Holidays

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, holidays in Penzance offer something for everyone; beaches, rock pools, coastal path walking, National Trust and English Heritage sites, restaurants and galleries. The town has plenty of car parks that offer a weekly stay from £30. 

Penzance has secret treats; if you take the time to explore. For a start it’s a good town for walking. The very best way to see Penzance is by the alleys and walkways, the through-lanes from here to there. Take a day to explore the town this way and you will discover its beautiful parks, its Regency and Georgian architecture.  

Penzance: 'Montpelier' of Cornwall

The oldest part of town is the quayside at Penzance’s Inner Harbour. The Dry Dock, Quay Street, Battery Rocks. The original promenade was built in 1844.

You can walk Penzance Promenade from Battery Rocks to Wherrytown, where there is one of two Penzance skateparks. From Wherrytown, keep to the seafront across Newlyn Green and you are in Newlyn. In all a 30 minute stroll, depending how long Jnr. wants to spend skateboarding. There is also a proper-job boating pool at Wherrytown for sailing those radio-controlled (and sail-driven) boats that just don’t get anywhere in the bath at home.

The arrival of the railway in 1852 made the ‘Montpelier of England’ (John Betjeman 1964 Shell Guide) even more accessible. 

Many interesting boats visit Mounts Bay, from the surreal floating yacht-hotels to mighty ships like the four-masted windjammer, KruzenshternThere is a Sailing Club and The Mounts Bay Lugger Association which, as its name suggests, celebrates the beauty of the Cornish Lugger, a traditional fishing boat.

Penzance has two harbour-side pubs: The Dock Inn and The Dolphin. The Dolphin is reputedly the first place in Britain where tobacco was smoked and the hanging judge, Judge Jefferies, is reputed to have held court here in the 1700s after the Monmouth Rebellion.

Things to do near Penzance

Stay self catering in Penzance and you’re perfectly situated to explore the surrounding towns and villages with their own individual characters. Literally minutes from Penzance is the fishing port of Newlyn whilst a little further on you’ll find the quaint village of Mousehole with its harbourside bistro and community atmosphere. 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

The Jubilee Pool
This beautiful art-deco open-air bathing pool is the UK’s largest seawater lido.  There is also an excellent cafe. 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!

Morrab Garden
A sub-tropical garden with Victorian fountains and a band-stand, which still plays host to concerts in the summer. The Morrab Library sits in the gardens and is an absolute joy.  The photographic archives and collections are wonderful. 

Penlee Park
Full of tress and squirrels, there is a specific dog-free and child-friendly play-park within the park. Penzance Tennis Club abuts the park and Penlee House Art Gallery & Museum (with excellent cafe) sits opposite the Penlee open-air theatre and is home to a large collection of Newlyn School paintings.

Shopping in Penzance
Market Jew Street is the main high street and like all high streets, it is in the process of adapting to new out of town shopping habits. However 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. There are many Georgian and early Victorian facades just above eye-level in Penzance.

Causewayhead leads up from the town centre.  A pedestrianised street, this is Penzance's third main retail street. Half way up is the Savoy cinema, said to be the oldest continually running cinema in the British Isles.

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 perfect for stocking up on treats for your holiday cottage. Check out our blog on places to eat in Marazion for ideas on where to refuel during your self catering holiday in Penzance. Or if you fancy a restaurant with spectacular views, The Bay in Penzance is the place to go. Read more on our blog: Restaurants with the best views in West Cornwall.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

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

Aug 2020

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 !

Feb 2020

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

Jan 2020

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

Sep 2019

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.

Sep 2019

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

Aug 2019

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.

Aug 2019

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

Jul 2019

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.

Jul 2019

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.

Apr 2019

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.

Apr 2019

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

Oct 2018

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.

Sep 2018

Well placed location. Very nice court yard and private.

Jun 2018

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

Very comfortable, clean and tidy

May 2018

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.

Apr 2018

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.
