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.

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.
