Kitts Court

Tucked away in the heart of the historic town of Penzance, Kitts Court is a relaxing retreat which has been lovingly restored. Swathed in shades of pastels and pretty florals, this traditional cottage sleeps up to three guests in two first floor bedrooms. Only a few steps and you will find yourself on Chapel Street, Penzance's most historic street. Couples and young families will feel right at home in this laidback abode, hidden in a traditional town courtyard. Complete with a small private cottage garden, overflowing with greenery, which encourages al fresco dining during Cornwall's hot summer months. Meander slowly down to the beach, stopping for a locally brewed tipple at The Turks Head or The Admiral Benbow, on the way or on the way back.

In Summer enjoy sipping a morning mug of coffee with the cottage door open to the front courtyard with a sea breeze gently drifting in over the roof tops. In winter, Kitts Court is a cosy retreat for couples with a romantic edge to the bedroom, its easy to sink into the sofa in front of the blazing woodburner as the warming smell of homemade hot chocolate drifts across from the kitchen. The property is a perfect choice for couples wanting a convenient town centre location with restaurants, cafes, pubs, galleries and beaches all on the doorstep. Good transport links close by, make it easy to explore West Cornwall.

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.

Beautiful cute little Cottage down a cobbled lane just off the famous Chapel Street. A great find and very suitable for couples, lone travellers and a family with one child. I would return.

Didn’t like having a bathroom downstairs. Would have appreciated wardrobes & a dressing table Shower goes cold intermittently Dark because if the surrounding trees

Fantastic house in a lovely town. Accessible to everything but tucked away and so quiet and private. Everything and more that you would need in a holiday house and very nicely furnished and decorated. Everything from the booking onwards ran very smoothly. Could not fault anything and would come back.

Steps away from views of St Michael's Mount, Mousehole and 45 Queens Street-a wonderful venue mixing up quality cocktails (with home made rose petal gin), tapas and serving it all in a relaxed atmosphere on a first come first served basis!

Very welcome and cosy cottage with such a nice location.

Wow! What a lovely find, a hidden gem.Modern contemporary but still traditional.Lovely sitting area both at the front and back of the cottage .The cream teas and scones were welcoming on arrival.Watching the sea go by on the landing was tanquill.Infact did not want to come home .
