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 for visiting Cornwall - easy reach of the railway and bus stations. Lots of local restaurants.

Our second stay at Heart Lodge - we absolutely love it. It was so warm and cosy and the week flew by despite the January drizzle and downpours. We hope to be back again soon. Thanks to all for making our stay so special.

Excellent property in an ideal location. Most comfortable and spacious for seven people.Would not hesitate to recommend or return to this property.

We had an excellent week at Heart Lodge. Great location close to the high street and railway station. Spacious kitchen and comfy lounge. Lots of books and dvds to keep everyone entertained when we weren’t enjoying the delights of Penzance. We will be back.

Heart lodge was perfect for us, 6 adults and 2 children. Lots of space, everything we needed for our holiday and so reasonable for peak season in Cornwall.

We absolutely loved our stay in Heart Lodge! We visit Cornwall every year, usually staying in St Ives, but we will book Heart Lodge from now on! Fantastic location , lovely house with plenty of space for our stay with 3 children & 3 adults & a dog. House was well equipped with a fantastic book collection, guitar, games galore & home comforts for any not so good weather days. Very quiet , despite its central location , the house was airy & peaceful. Can’t wait to go back next year!

We loved everything about Heart Lodge. It immediately felt like home with beautiful, tasteful art and interesting books. The cottage was warm and cosy with very comfortable beds. We returned home refreshed and hope to return soon. Thank you.

Great location for town, this pet friendly house is perfect for a relaxed enjoyable time.

Lovely spacious house in a great location. The house was very comfortable and felt very homely. We were lucky to get some nice weather and enjoyed sitting on the bench int he front garden with a glass of wine watching the world go by.

Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance.Easy walk to promenade and town centre, also a lovely walk to Newlyn to the west or Marazion to the east.

Cleanliness, quality of fixtures and fittings (the windows in the kitchen leak), general condition of property was very poor. The property needs refurbishing.

We are very sorry to hear that the standards of this property had not met your expectations. We would always want a property to be 100% for a guests arrival and if for any reason, it is not, we would aim to rectify any areas of concern immediately. We are so sorry that we were not aware of any of this, or that we did not have the oportunity to rectify this for you at the time. Now being aware, we have spoken to the property owner, who has confirmed that she is replacing the seagrass carpet, lino in the kitchen, purchasing matching crockery, and taking a look at the leaking windows and kitchen cabinets/units next week. We have been in touch with you since receiving this feedback, to discuss all of this further, so I hope that you can see how seriously feedback is taken. Thank you again for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Services

Good location for bus and train. Value for money.

heart lodge is a lovely cottage in a fantastic location,

We liked the house a lot - the living spaces felt stylish and comfortable and very much like home.

I'm not sure you'd want a comment from us until suggestions we have made are considered and actioned on.....

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We always welcome constructive comments from guests which can help us and the owners to understand what improvements are considered most important to guests. We were sorry to hear that the paintings, books and dolls house within the property were not to your taste. The owners have tried to ensure a homely feel but it can be difficult to suit every taste. A sofa and carpet clean has since been carried out and all of your comments passed on to the owners. I know that one of my colleagues has already been in contact with you following your stay, but again, we would like to thank you for taking the time to send in your suggestions.
