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

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 cafe) 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.

Walks

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!

Granite cottage in central Penzance near the train station and near the coast, but no sea views. Great location,for trips south and north along the coast. Ideal layout and space for 2 people.

Lovely holiday in Penzance. Aspects were great and easy to get hold of. We stayed in Pogles Cottage which is right by the station so great location for town and beach. Only negative is the bed seriously needs replacing, very old, soft and creaky!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback; we are glad that you liked it here. We were sorry to hear that you struggled with the comfort of the bed. Finding a bed to suit everyone's preference can be a bit of a challenge and whilst we have had another comment on the bed comfort, we have also had comments from guests on it being the most comfortable bed they have ever slept in. For now, we will continue to monitor for any further feedback on this, but your comments are also passed straight on to the owners of the property, for their consideration. Thank you for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

Great location. Cute little accommodation. Very poor bed in terms of comfort and size.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you found the bed uncomfortable. Currently it is advertised as just a standard double, so if you are used to a larger size bed at home, these may understandably seem quite small. We are very sorry if this was not what you had expected. We hope that you had a great time here and thank you for your review. Tanya, Customer Services

A cosy cottage with all the basics you need for a base in the PZ area! Nicely furbished, cosy and clean. Just remember there's no wifi so you'll have to plan ahead should you intend to netflix-and-chill :-P

What a lovely cosy and comfortable cottage tucked away on the corner.Nice sitting area at the back .Lovely comfortable bed to watch TV Everything to hand that was needed.

a small cosy base very close to train/bus station, town on the doorstep, plenty takeaways within walking distance. Not good for parking.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed Pogle's Cottage. It really is in an ideal location for exploring Penzance, being right in the heart of the town. With this amazingly convenient location, it does mean that there is no parking at the property, as with many properties within the town. However, there is often parking in nearby residential roads, but at busier times, the harbour car park is only 5 minutes' walk away from the property. We hope that you managed to find that car park, but if you are ever returning to the area, please do not hesitate to ask the team for information on the nearest parking options. Tanya, Customer Services

Cozy cottage with central location. Good outdoor sitting space too, a sun trap. Free street parking near by.

Very happy with cottage, will probably return.

Cosy, convenient and really lovely for 2. Free parking in local streets is easy to find. Courtyard seating area gorgeous on sunny mornings. Comfy bed and everything you need.

Hope others enjoy their stay as much as we did would definitely recommend pogles cottage to any one Chris &Hazel

Nice compact property for one or two. Great location for public transport with parking at the harbour also available. Very quiet and warm.

This is the second time I stayed at Pogle's cottage and would stay again. Comfortable, quiet, full of character and close to the town centre

Would not hesitate to book this cottage again - for 2 people it's ideal.

We had a marvellous stay here at Pogle cottage. Parking was available on street near by, also a quiet location in view of how close it was to centre of Penzance. Perfect for getting around Cornwall. The outside space was lovely given the good weather. We have booked to come again next year. Dog friendly too.

Quiet, clean, comfortable and close to the town centre. The cottage has a lovely character that somehow reminded me of staying at my grandmothers house as a child.

No parking outside the cottage, but I had not problem parking in the streets close by.

Pogles Cottage is very small, but well equipped. It's just a short walk from the bus station and the railway, and the shops in Market Jew Street. I think parking might be a problem if you were using a car. The cottage is centrally heated and we were pleased to find gas and electricity were included. We were welcomed with a cream tea, which was lovely!

Thanks for your feedback. Just to try and reassure you, if there is no available parking in the residential areas, the Harbour Car Park usually always has available spaces. This is approximately 5 minutes' walk from the property, and a weekly ticket can be purchased for £42. If you would like any further information or advice on parking options, please feel free to call us. Tanya, Customer Services

My husband and I went to Pogles cottage for 1 week. The cottage is very comfortable and extremely clean It had everything we needed We would definitely book again with Aspects holidays Diane and Ian

Very cosy homely cottage, it has everything you need. Great location for public transport has only minutes away and close to all amenities and great for eating out. Great if you take your dog has very dog friendly.

Lovely little place. Just very narrow at top of stairs.

This cottage was warm and homely, and was spacious enough for us to spend as much time relaxing inside the cottage as we were exploring the local area. It was beautifully decorated and equipped well, and I would definitely recommend it.

The cottage was very clean. All cooking utensils, cooker, fridge etc. clean and good standard. Safety information, equipment guides easily to hand. Comfortable bed with nice quality clean cotton bedding. Right in the centre of town with easy access to train and bus stations.

We found this cottage charming, comfortable, quiet, very well-equipped and very well located for pubic transport and the town centre. Ideal for those traveling without a car.
