A nice apartment with lots of space for two people.

The location is great for walking into Penzance and to the station. It is very close to the SW coastal path and is well placed for visiting those most distant places in 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 & comfortable home from home apartment. Would highly recommend for couples weekend away

A nice apartment with lots of space for two people.

The location is great for walking into Penzance and to the station. It is very close to the SW coastal path and is well placed for visiting those most distant places in Cornwall!

My husband and I stayed at Penrose Muse for 1 week and found the accommodation fantastic. It was very well equipped and in a perfect location. The arrival instructions were very clear and we had no trouble finding the cottage. There is a fantastic hotel, just round the corner and up the hill, that did fabulous food and the restaurant overlooked the harbour. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely return to this accommodation in the future ????

We loved our stay here. Beautiful, clean and well finished property. It was a great size for the two of us, great heating system, TV and games too. Lots of information in the booklet about the house and local area. Walking distance into Penzance. Excellently equipped kitchen with cafetierre and weighing scales and everything! Washing machine was useful too. And the biscuits, tea and coffee on arrival was a lovely touch. Parking space outside the door is very handy.

Stunning apartment and ideal location to explore from and the town is right on your door step.

Penrose Mews apartment has everything, the conservatory and patio area is a bonus.The rooms are large and tastefully furnished and comfortable with it. The kitchen is particularly well equipped. Number 2, being at the back, does not suffer from road noise. Seven minutes walk from Penzance station and shops.The welcome pack of coffee, tea and biscuits is a nice touch, together with washing up liquid and scrubbing pad. The bed linen and towels were spotless and the whole apartment had an atmosphere of hygiene. For those arriving by car the parking is accessible and spacious.For anybody needing a friendly taxi service I would recommend Anytime taxis, Penzance.

An amazing clean and spacious apartment which had clearly been fitted out recently with brand new appliances. Plenty of room with just about everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay. A quick walk to both to the coast as well as to the centre of Penzance. Would highly recommend to anyone!!

Overall excellent property, great size, very comfortable and well equipped and in a great location with private parking. Large kitchen area with space for a table if needed. Everything available, oven/hob/grill, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, numerous utensils/pots/pans/plates/glasses etc, iron/board, mop, vacuum plus some useful additions like tea towels, washing liquid, washing tablets, tea bags, coffee amongst others.

Good size bathroom with powerful shower over the bath. Could do with a hand rail to assist getting in/out of the bath maybe.

Large double bedroom with comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space. Nice full length mirror and a hairdryer in cupboard drawer.

Large main living area with big settee and single chair. Smallish TV but there is a DVD player and a quantity of films available.

A second living/computer type room off the main living area may be useful to some guests, not used by us. Would be ideal for a second bedroom and increase in guest numbers to three or four possibly.

Off the main living area is the conservatory with a small dining table for four and set in a neat little garden. Great little location to eat and relax in the morning or evening sun, especially if a small settee or something similar was added.

A parking space is effectively reserved directly outside the front of the Mews, which in turn is situated behind the main building and accessed via a slightly awkward entrance at the junction of Britons Hill and Chyandour Cliff.

From the front of the main garden there is an excellent view across Penzance bay, with St Michaels Mount and the Quay in full view. It takes no more than five minutes to walk in to the main town area to the right of the mews and a couple of minutes or less to drive or maybe ten minutes to walk to all of the larger retail, eating and commercial properties to the left, Tesco, Sainsburys, KFC, Halfords etc.

This is a great location as a base to explore the Cornwall area, with Lands End, Mousehole, St Ives and many other beautiful places to visit within a relatively short drive away. Try the beach at Praa sands and a walk around the harbour at Porthleven, both excellent.

We enjoyed our stay at Penrose Mews in Penzance, facilities and equipment all new, everything was very comfortable and would recommend the accommodation and Aspects Holidays to anyone. Oz Rudolph & June Foulkes
