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.

We stayed in sea salt cottage in Penzance we went for my wife’s 60th birthday, it was a tremendous week, fantastic cottage, in a top location we had a great time.

Kev Stevens

Absolutely loved our stay at Sea Salt! Incredible panoramic views towards St Michael's Mount and the harbour. We loved sitting in the sun and watching the boats and birds. Pure relaxation! Great location to walk into Newlyn or Penzance and a short drive to other great places such as St Ives. The owners were friendly and helpful. So pleased we were able to swap our dates from last year (due to lockdown) and it was worth the wait! Apartment had everything we needed. We loved visiting Kynance Cove and Bedruthan Steps - these are further out but stunning! You will not regret your stay here! We can't wait to go back another year!

Great location with an amazing view

Amazing view over the bay, great place to chill out and enjoy the seaside. The owner were very friendly and very helpful, they made us feel very welcomed.

Sea Salt is a lovely apartment with stunning views of St, Micheal's Mount and the Harbor of Newlyn. Great central location for accessing all Cornwall has to offer. George and Chris are more than happy to offer advice on the best places to visit and are friendly and very welcoming. We had a lovely time at Sea Salt and are looking forward to returning next year.

This is a lovely property, in a great location for exploring this area and has the best balcony and views we have ever had on a holiday to West Cornwall. We will return.

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.

Brilliant location, lovely hosts and apartment felt like home from home

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.

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.

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.

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...

We can recommend the property "Sea Salt" without any limitations: perfect location, perfect equipment and what a view on Mount's Bay!

Lovely views, it felt like home from home. Chris and George were always on hand if needed. We would return to this property without question. The weather was a bonus hot and beautiful.

Sea salt is a truly beautiful apartment with a lovely balcony and stunning view out to sea and across to Newlyn harbour.

It is in a lovely location for visiting the area, the view from the balcony is exceptional, Private parking is available, the layout is really good.

Excellent cottage with lovely views out to sea

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.

A very comfortable flat with everything you need for a holiday, and a superb view!
