Sea and Sky

£488 - £1060 per week

Sea and Sky is the ideal holiday home of choice for those looking to escape from the fast pace of everyday life and take a moment to recharge. Sleeping four with a family bathroom and two balconies, Sea and Sky has classic nautical hints to offer a welcoming holiday home that looks straight over the water. Enjoying a view that probably hasn't changed much in the best part of 200 years, you can almost feel the history of the place. Within a short walk from Sea and Sky, find yourself wandering the winding streets that are steeped in history and discover adorable boutiques, specialist shops, galleries and restaurants. Private parking makes Sea and Sky the perfect choice as a bolthole to explore all Cornwall has to offer.

Sea and Sky is located within the Abbey Basin, which was completed in 1884, three years after the Ross Bridge was built to link the North and South Piers. Idly pass the time relaxing with the balcony doors open and watch the harbour go about its day; moored yachts gently bob on the still water while the Scillonian sails daily to and from the Isles of Scilly. West Cornwall enjoys a wealth of breathtaking walks, hidden coves and golden beaches to discover.

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!

Lovely views over the harbour and out to sea.

Sea and Sky, lovely rain or shine!

Great stay in the heart of Penzance - super comfortable!

We booked this apartment because of the views & location which did not disappoint us in any way, we could watch the Scillonion ferry both dock & depart, St Michaels Mount was lit over the weekend which looked very magical, we could watch the Isle of Scilly helicopter land & take off which happened several times a day. Although the apartment was were it was it was a quiet area & close to everything. we would not hesitate to book again

apartment and views were excellent and we really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of places to go to and enjoyed a meal at The Turks head. Gill & Pete.

The location was perfect with all local amenities you would require close by and the property was very clean and comfortable we would definitely look to book this apartment again , we have booked through aspect several times and always found them to be first class

Excellent property, with a lovely view and central for the town and public transport. Impressed with both bedrooms, very spacious and great storage. We enjoyed a lovely week at Sea and Sky.

Perfect apartment excellent location with lovely views of the harbour. Near to shops.

Great location and lovely apartment. Everything catered for. Power shower was excellent. Dishwasher a must. Rooms bright and airy, and each a good size. Balcony in lounge, and sliding doors in lounge and one bedroom. Great views over the harbour and St Michael's Mount.

We had a fantastic holiday. The apartment was wonderful. Incredible views and location but also very clean, comfortable and well equiped. We really appreciated the tea, milk and biscuits on arrival. We were also very impressed with Aspects Holidays customer service. We rang them twice during our stay and they were very helpful and quick to respond. I highly recommend them and the quality of their properties, and hope to use them again soon myself.

The view from this flat is wonderful. There is always something to watch and see. Regular sea swimmers, boats, waves and St Michael’s Mount. The decor is appropriate, on a seaside theme. Plenty of crockery, glasses etc as well as kitchen equipment. The location is great not only for the. Views, but close to transport, shops and pubs. Also comfortable furniture and beds. Very clean.

Lovely apartment with wonderful views over the harbour, car park conveniently near.

Chapel Street full of interesting independant traders and Penzance Art Gallery with small cafe and wonderful coffee!

Aspects holidays was very good .lovely flat everything you need in the flat was there would recommend it thank you

sea and Sky has amazing views from its floor to ceiling windows. The harbour, along the beaches of Mounts Bay and St Michael’s Mount can be seen. The flat is well equipped and the decor is harmonious and relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped. The flat is warm and comfortable. The location is excellent in that it is close to the railway and bus stations and the town centre. However it is also quiet.

Sea and Sky is a gem tucked away near Chapel Street with wonderful views across Mounts Bay. The flat is spacious and well equipped. A short walk takes you to the town centre with lots of cafes and some quirky little shops. The ferry terminal to the isles of Scilly is minutes away. Will be booking again for sure.

Our first time staying in Penzance & this property is ideal for walking to shops, pubs & restaurants. We even visited the local cinema during our stay. We loved watching the changing scenes out on the harbour and experienced a stunning sunrise one morning.

Great to have a parking space too, but be aware it is several minutes walk away from the apartment and the uneven pavements are not ideal for wheeling luggage!

The interior of the apartment is as it looks in the photos, warm, cosy & comfortable. A well equipped kitchen and the bonus of a large fridge freezer too. There was always plenty of hot water & good pressure from the shower. beautiful thick towels too, which was a bonus!

For shopping we used Lidl's on Western Promenade but there is a Co-op within walking distance and Tesco Extra in the main street.

Our first night we ate out at the quirky Admiral Benbow pub, only 1 minute away across the street. I'd also recommend The Artist's Residence, across the road in Chapel Street. I enjoyed my birthday breakfast there. Other restaurant's worth a mention are Alverne, The Boathouse & The Old Lifeboat House Bistro, all within 10 minutes walking of the apartment. Also recommended is to take the local bus No 16, to St Ives, from the bus station, I wouldn't want to drive to St. Ives but the bus takes you into the centre, so no parking problems.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and hope to rebook for next year.

Sky and Sea has a location which would be hard to beat. The views are stunning and it is so convenient for the two best pubs in Penzance and Penzance centre. Any return to Penzance would be to Sky and Sea.

We enjoyed our time at Sea and Sky, and the weather was excellent and couldn't have been better. It has not been as good since arriving home in Somerset.

Second time staying here and hopefully won't be the last. Bedrooms are comfortable with a great view of the harbour. Living room very cosy with a smart TV and dvd player to keep you entertained if you don't fancy heading out. Didn't really use much of the kitchen as always ate out or had takeaway. Located near to train and bus station. Short walk to pubs, cinema, shops.

You will enjoy this comfortable property. It is of a high standard and has everything you require. Very impressed. Beautiful views of the harbours and general area. I can understand why this is fully booked for most of the year. Two adjacent pubs of interest. The Admiral Benbow and The Turks Head centuries old.. Smuggler tunnels leading from them. The flat is nicely situated for shopping and restaurants, buses and railway.

Great flat in the centre of Penzance, finished to a high standard with everything you need for a comfy stay in Cornwall. We could not fault the property, it was very clean on arrival, which is of particular importance at the present time. All the furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was well equiped. We were walking the south West Coastal path, so for us we needed a good central base and somewhere nice and relaxing at the end of a days walking, this flat fitted the bill perfectly.


Lovely property well equipped and located. Sitting at the balcony watching the people in and on the water so relaxing.

'Sea and Sky' is a very nice flat in the centre of Penzance with a view of the harbour and St Michael's Mount. It is well-furnished, well-appointed and a excellent place to stay, being quiet while also very close to shops, cafes, bars and galleries. A minor issue with heating was promptly sorted out and the service from Aspect was excellent. I have already recommended the flat to friends.

Absolutely loved Sea & Sky. Not a far walk fro the train station. Nearest pub is a 22 second walk from the gate! Love how within a maximum of a 10 minute walk you can get to : local shop, chip shop, chinese, pub, cinema. Stunning views over the harbour - no morning the same. Apartment fully equipped with what you need, definitely a home from home. Will 100% book here again.

Such a fabulous flat to stay. This is definately a comfortable and very thought out flat for your holiday. Having a parking space , great location and a view. We will gladly return.

Sea and sky in penzance was a lovely apartment clean and welcoming, the view was fantastic could see the harbour and st micheals mount , no day was the same , will deffo be returning

Great location for local town amenities. Wonderful views over harbour to St Michael's Mount. Lived up to expectations.

This is an excellent property in a great location with wonderful views. It is warm and comfortable , furnished with taste and with thought to what a holidaymaker would need during their stay. Couldn't fault it!

Had such a relaxing few days. Such a lovey flat and excellent location. Would definitely recommend a stay here

Good stay at Sea and Sky, lovely apartment for four, but would not recommend due to noisy neighbour.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear that you experienced noise from a neighbour. This is not something that had been raised as an issue previously, so we have made some enquiries, and found that the noise that you experienced that Saturday night, had been due to a one-off celebration. We are sorry if this incident took the shine off what sounded like an otherwise very enjoyable stay there. We will continue to monitor future feedback, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Tanya, Customer Services
