Hideaway House

£527 - £1075 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.

We would highly recommend this property. The house was beautifully decorated and super clean, with lovely artwork on display. There was pretty much everything that we needed, including a very well equipped kitchen, phone chargers, torches, spare bulbs etc. The dining room extension is lovely and light, and we spent a lot of time at the kitchen island. The location is great and very close to the promenade, whilst also being a 10 minute walk into town. We had some lovely walks down to Newlyn for fresh fish. The weather was wild (and beautiful) over the festive break, and the house was a fantastic place to come back from bracing walks and hunker down for the evening.

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!

Excellent property in a convenient location.

This is an excellent place to stay and we look forward to our next visit!

Hideaway House exceeded our expectations in every way. In 30 years of using holiday cottages, this was by far the best we have stayed in. The decor is tasteful and cleanliness could not be faulted. Everything we needed was there. In terms of car parking, there is limited street parking so I would highly recommend unloading at the property then using the wherry town car park a few minutes walk away. 7 day’s parking for £25 very cheap and convenient.

Hideaway House is a real gem. Its is extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished, in a quiet peaceful location, convenient for everything.

Hideaway House is a gem. Great location and very well equipped. I would definitely stay there again.

A lovely comfortable clean cottage in a great location, tucked away in a quiet lane less than a minute's walk from the promenade. Bring your own loo roll.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Hideaway House. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the peaceful location of the property, though we are sorry to hear that there was no toilet paper on your arrival. There should be enough toilet paper to get you started during your break, so we will speak to the housekeeper to make sure there is some in the property and we are very sorry for any inconvenience. Katy, Customer Services

Excellent location and beautifully presented cottage with everything you need to make it feel like home. This was our second visit and we enjoyed our stay very much. The cat was a bit more demanding this time, but we didn't give in to it as we thought that a holiday cottage isn't it's best source of food!!

Hideaway house was beautiful. Fully equipped, had everything we needed and so much more... Beautifully decorated with no expense spared. Penzance itself didn't really have much to do but it was a perfect base to visit the local area.

Hideaway House was a great base to explore the west of Cornwall. The house was extremely clean and well kept and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We loved how close it is to the sea and enjoyed some lovely evening walks along the promenade. The view of Mounts Bay looking out to St. Michael’s Mount and Newlyn will never grow old! The owners have compiled one of the best information booklets we have ever seen with lots of great recommendations for places to visit and food to eat! We also loved how they have decorated the house throughout with artwork of the local area too. With regards to parking we did manage to find a space close to the house apart from one night where we used the Penlee Park car park which is free from 4pm to 9am each day. This is a 5 minute walk from the property through the park to the house. We were always able to offload the beach gear metres from the house which was fine. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Hideaway House and would highly recommend a stay here!

We spent an amazing week at Hideaway House in Penzance. Cottage is ideally located for the Jubilee Pool, promenade and just a short walk away from the main shops and restaurants. The house has been tastefully decorated, was impeccably clean and was truly a home away from home. We are looking forward to return in the near future!

We had a fabulous time at Hideaway house. It was really clean and had a lovely house to stay in. It was really close to the beach and shops, as well as being a perfect base to get to other locations in Cornwall easily. We particularly like Mousehole which was reached by a lovely walk along the coast line. We would definitely book again.

Very calm, clean and well equipped house. Plus, you do find parking - eventually!

Peaceful place. Very calm. Near to many attractive points in the town. It can be reached by foot from the train station. The house is well furnished with high quality furniture. All is maintained very well. Very nice election of art pictures at the walls. I stayed 2 times there and like the place very much.

Hideaway House exceeded our expectations. It lived up to its name, in a quiet location but central to everything needed. It was stylishly furnished, exceptionally comfortable and clean and absolutely everything was provided. The owner’s personal touches made it feel like a home whilst away. We loved it so much we have already booked again for next year. Thank you to the owners and to Aspect Holidays for making a much needed rest perfect!

This is a well presented properly, and is close to the town. A very enjoyable week and has everything you could ask for

Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, well placed for all the local services and a joy to stay in, we absolutely loved out week here and would highly reccomend this property.

A wonderful property with all that you could need. An excellent location to explore the south west. This was our second visit and won’t be our last!

Excellent property and value for money. Lovely stay in this hideaway cottage which you could easily access all areas of Penzance and surroundings.

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!
