Sirens
Penzance

£437 - £1214 per week
Book

As the sun rises and sailing boats drift lazily on the horizon, savour drawn out mornings with a piping hot cup of Cornish tea in hand. Benefiting from a slightly elevated position, one can spend hours admiring the sea views Sirens provides, over the top of the chimney pots, across to St Michael's Mount and beyond. If your holiday wishes are to be close to the elements, spend joyful days bathing in the sea and Jubilee Pool on the promenade or exploring and foraging on the coastal paths, before returning to this beautiful home to rinse off the salty air. Plan the next day's adventures with a crisp glass of white on the decking, before preparing a freshly caught sea platter, in the well-equipped kitchen. The sumptuous, rust coloured, velvet and ink blue sofas beckon post-dinner celebrations for a family of six or a group of friends, spending quality time together. For a time to reflect, the cosy snug room provides a peaceful escape to either admire the view or lose yourself in the power of a good book.

Sirens is located within Penzance town centre, a short stroll from both the train and bus station, meaning you can choose to leave the car behind. A few minutes' walk will lead you to some fine eateries and traditional Cornish pubs. Choose a holiday read from the local friendly book shop and enjoy a barista coffee and a slice of heavenly cake, from one of the several delightful cafes in the town. Pleasant walks into neighbouring Marazion and Newlyn and further into Mousehole beside the sea, provide captivating views. For the more adventurous, surfing at the spectacular Sennen Cove and the stretching golden beach at Praa Sands are just a short drive away. With discounts for smaller groups and storage for surfboards or bikes, Sirens is a very comfortable home that provides something for everyone, to create special, lasting holiday memories.

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.
