Hideaway House

£399 - £930 per week

Hidden away between the promenade, with its art deco Jubilee Pool and the sub-tropical Morrab Gardens, is this charming town house, located in a pretty, traffic free area of Penzance. Delightful welcoming interiors reflect the greys and blues of the natural surroundings on your doorstep. Hideaway House boasts open plan, light filled spaces, with two bright and airy bedrooms to choose from, and a spacious family bathroom to relax in after a day of long blustery walks or an afternoon surfing the waves. Hideaway House benefits from a small rear patio area, to enjoy a glass of something chilled at the end of your fun-filled day.

Enjoy the walk along to Newlyn to buy fresh fish to cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen on your return, or walk the coast path east to Marazion, to visit the iconic St Michaels Mount. Hideaway House is perfectly positioned to explore west Cornwall's many quaint, villages and stunning sandy beaches, but is perfectly named, as it really is a serene hideaway in a great location.

Holidays in Penzance

On a sunny day, St. Michael’s Mount, Mount's Bay and Penzance seafront might be mistaken for the Mediterranean. Sitting in the corner of a sheltered and attractive bay, the 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; sub-tropical plants grow well in Morrab Gardens and in the gardens on St. Michael’s Mount.

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.

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.  

Did you know...

Penzance has one of the mildest climates in the UK!

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 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.

Our stay was excellent and we would thoroughly recommend Hideaway House. We felt very much at home. Lovely tasteful Christmas decorations and a beautiful personalised welcome pack.

A fabulously furnished/decorated property which sums up the essence of being on holiday with the comforts of being at home. Ideally located, with good transport links. We look forward to returning.

Hideaway House was just perfect in every way and we can't recommend it enough. The furnishings are beautiful, wonderful art work on the walls and around the house, it's sparkling clean, really quiet and in a great location. It's close to the town, the promenade and Jubilee Pool and a short walk to Newlyn. It serves as a great base for anyone exploring this part of Cornwall. The attention to detail in Hideaway House is fantastic and it feels like a lot of thought, care and love has gone into it. We really hope to come back one day in the not too distant future.

Excellent property in a very convenient location.

We visited in August and really enjoyed our stay. Hideaway house has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay from cool bags to picnic baskets. Beautifully situated near gardens and a cafe for breakfast. Easy to walk into town. Streets were very busy for parking although we always managed to find a spot. We would definitely stay again just make sure you book restaurants before your visit as everywhere is really busy .

Fantastic house, great location and had everything you needed. Beds were comfortable and the whole house was clean. Decor was lovely and made it real home from home. Really light downstairs, shaded and cool upstairs and very private. Would recommend!

One of the best cottages we have stayed in… spotlessly clean, stylish, comfortable and a lovely place to relax in. We found it to be the perfect base, literally a couple of minutes walk to the seafront or to the beautiful Morab Gardens, with both Newlyn and Penzance town centre an easy walk. Very comfortable beds, quality bed linen and thick towels, well equipped kitchen, plenty of local guidebooks provided and everything for the perfect holiday for us. We had no issues in finding free on street parking every day close by. Thoroughly recommend, thank you.

This is a very nice and well located house in a very calm street. No one will disturb you. The inside is all done in a very high quality (floors, equipment, decoration and art). There is a hidden terrace place with sun nearly all of the day. - The most important points can be done by foot: waterfront, centre and bigger shops, like Lidl. Some parks are closed by. Bus stop not far. Travelling already several times to Cornwall this house I liked best. Thank you very much!

Loved the house, everything you could possibly need was in the house! Games books cd’s, extra attention to detail. Ideally situated to see places of interest and local amenities . Would thoroughly recommend

very nice home from home spotlessly clean has everything you would need, looking forword to staying here again next year.

Beautiful property.So comfortable and luxurious, we love staying here. Immaculate and so well equipped, and super location. We can't praise it enough.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hideaway House and have already booked again for next year. It's a bright, modern cottage in a great location with a very homely feel to it. Honestly I didn't want to leave! Would definitely recommend if you are thinking of booking.

Beautiful house in great location.

A tastefully decorated gem of a house. Very clean and well cared for. Large master bedroom with huge bed and attractive bathroom. Comfy sofa and delightful kitchen. Well equipped in every room including board games, books and dvds. No parking outside so be prepared to carry your bags a little/fair way.

This was our ‘COVID’ holiday. We booked Hideway house in 2019 and were wary about travelling from Wales. Very glad we did, it’s a lovely house, spotlessly clean with a very homely and peaceful feel. Particularly liked the art work! We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed time as a family on Cornwall’s many beaches. Penzance is full of character and we enjoyed the short walks in and around town. Lidl close by for the essentials. Although no designated parking we never had a problem parking down a street close by.

This is a lovely period cottage on the edge of a Georgian conservation area and close to Morrab Sub-tropical Gardens. It's possible to walk into Penzance centre in 10-15 minutes. This is a quiet and leafy area. Newlyn is an easy walk away along the sea front and Mousehole a little bit farther.

The cottage couldn't be better equipped and everything seemed new and top quality. It was spotlessly clean. There are lovely art works around and a good collection of guide books, maps and DVDs.

We felt very confident about staying here during the current pandemic.

Our property and the service and information given by Aspects were well above average and we will definitely book this property again, its a real gem

Hideaway House is a lovely property, providing everything you need and more for a quiet and relaxing stay. Highly recommended. One minute from the sea, three minutes from the Penlee Museum and a short walk into town via the secret and stunning Regency enclave of Morrab Place or the beautiful subtropical Morrab Gardens. An excellent Lidl is five minutes’ walk. We wish we could have stayed forever!

We had a lovely week here and has to be one of the best we've stayed in. It has everything you need and there is plenty of space to relax.

We really enjoyed our week in this lovely house and didn't want to leave. It is one of the best we have stayed in so far with comfy bedroom and light and airy kitchen diner. The location in Penzance is perfect and very close to one of our favourite pubs! We even had a very friendly cat, which sat on the wall at the front of the house for most of the week.

The house was a delight to stay in. An incredibly high standard of decoration and functioning and the location couldn't have been better chosen. It was an effortless week thanks to the thoughtfulness of the owners. We'd love to return. In fact, we'd love to live there. Please convey our thanks to all concerned

It is a perfect house for two people, it is extremely comfy, tasteful and one senses the personal touch which made our stay perfect.

It’s is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in and we are well advanced in years now!! The town is within easy walking distance for the Moore aged amongst us!!

Hideaway House is an amazing find. Tucked away in a pedestrian area, so it’s lovely and quiet, yet only 1 minutes walk to the seafront (literally!).

It has absolutely everything you could need to make it a real home from home, with superb attention to detail and extra special little touches. The welcome basket and scones were the icing on the cake after a long journey.

We had a lovely few days here. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
