Book

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.

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.

Penzance Holidays

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. The town has plenty of car parks that offer a weekly stay from £30. 

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.  

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 near Penzance

Stay self catering in Penzance and you’re perfectly situated to explore the surrounding towns and villages with their own individual characters. Literally minutes from Penzance is the fishing port of Newlyn whilst a little further on you’ll find the quaint village of Mousehole with its harbourside bistro and community atmosphere. 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

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.

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.

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.

Clive

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
