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.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Thank you George and Chris for welcoming us and making us feel at home. Your local recommendations of the Tolcarne inn, Tonkins fish for their catch of the day & mackerel sky Tapas restaurant were spot on! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with fantastic scenic views on the lovely sun balcony overlooking Newlyn and St Michaels mount.

For future guests we recommend checking out Mousehole, Lamorna Cove, Penberth Cove, Porthcurno, Porthchapel (beware of steep climb down to get their though) and Nanjizal cove.

We will definitely be recommending to family and friends. Thank you again George and Chris x

This was a memorable place and the views could not be beaten. The family owned flat is so comfortable and the owners on hand easily if you need them. Great place to walk and close to lovely local shops.

It couldn't have been better. We had an excellent time at Sea Salt. Lovely accommodation. Fantastic sea views and idyllic balcony. Very quiet and peaceful at night. Easy access to the seafront and the surrounding towns and villages. Shops and pubs all within walking distance. I would love to go back there again. I thoroughly recommend it.

Nice apartment, lovely views. It felt like a home away from home. Would recommend to others thinking about visiting.

Sep 2019

Sea Salt is a beautiful property that boasts brilliant seviews across the whole bay. The property size is ideal for two persons and the house has a good layout. Chris and George are very friendly and helpful. The restaurants, pubs and the new wine bar in Newlyn are only a short stroll away, as is Penzance and its famous Jubilee Pool.

Aug 2019

This was our second year at Sea Salt and we are very pleased with everything it has to offer. The apartment is great and the views are unbeatable. Newlyn is becoming a really good centre for a Penwith holiday, it has so much to offer and had amazing character. I am hoping we will be able to return soon. I should say that the main house was having some building work done but it in no way impacted on our holiday. I have never known builders so considerate and quiet.

Jul 2019

Yet another fantastic stay at Sea Salt, made even better having our 5 month old daughter with us! Chris & George are wonderful hosts. This is a gem we would return to again and again...

This is a lovely cottage, very well appointed and in a great location giving easy access to great sightseeing particularly in the Lands End and Lizard areas. The reverse sleeping and living accommodation, particularly the balcony allow great views over St Michael's Mount and Newlyn. We thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Having the owners next door is a great comfort and it was a pleasure to meet them.
