Tucked away in a charming cobbled and tree-lined residential square close to the centre of Penzance, this charming and quirky Victorian terraced home is a real find. Perfect for a romantic retreat, the large four poster bed is the perfect excuse for some together time in one of the most romantic parts of the UK. Decorated in a nautical theme, natural wood is used extensively throughout the house. Seascape paintings, a carved staircase, beamed ceilings and panelling in the sitting room all give a very warm and cosy feeling. You don't have to wander very far for entertainment either as the square has its own micro brewery.

Trevarthen is a lovely little house in a Victorian square, furnished comfortably. The living room doesn’t get much sun ( in autumn anyway) but is very cosy. Both bedrooms are very comfortable, the front is sunny, the back has a four poster bed. The Kitchen is really tiny, but adequate depending on how much cooking you want to do, I do like to cook, but ended up eating out most nights. There is a good washing machine but no dryer. The bathroom has a good shower & bath. We were given plenty of towels. We liked the position of the house, five minutes from Market Jew Street & one minute from The Crown, an excellent brew-pub. We probably will come back as we did like it overall.

For us, it is ideal. Am impressed by the fact that the owner has not jumped on the bandwagon of inflating his prices because of the pandemic and Cornwall becoming the place to go. Always good value for money, this part of the world never disappoints.

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.

Had an amazing two weeks in this lovely cozy cottage, very clean and well kept. This property now has WIFi which was a nice surprise, excellent location right by train and bus station, 2 minutes walk to shop all you need on your door step. Free parking outside the cottage a wonderful welcome package on arrival, wine, clotted cream scones and fresh flowers. A lovely quiet area, definitely recommend a stay here, could not fault anything. Thanks for a wonderful stay home from home.

Trevarthen is a beautiful and luxurious cottage in a quiet area of Penzance. The facilities are to a high standard, especially the bathroom!

Couldn`t have chosen a better location

A lovely cozy property in the heart of Penzance with everything you would need for a break away. It was clean and we'll kept, with a lovely welcome package of wine, clotted cream, scones and fresh flowers in the living room. It really made you feel home from home.

Very happy stay. Lovely welcome pack including wine, fruit and flowers as well as the essential cream tea! Beds comfy and house warm. Hope to visit again next year.

Lovely location with great parking. Cosy house, but possibly a little too cluttered.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you found it a little too cluttered for your taste. The owners have decorated in a way that they hope offers a cosy and homely feel and so we try to show this as well as possible within the photos, so we are sorry if this was not quite what you had expected. We will pass on the feedback for the owner's consideration, so thank you for taking the time to send in your thoughts, it is really appreciated. We hope that you had a great time and hopefully we will see you back in Cornwall again. Tanya, Customer Services

Just returned from a week stay here and it was lovely. The location of the cottage was perfect, 2 min walk from the train station and walking distance to all the amenities! The cottage had a lovely arrival gift of cream tea & a nice bottle of pinot! The beds weren't the comfiest unfortunately but we made do. Would definitely stay here again!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear how much you enjoyed Trevarthen though sorry that you found the mattress uncomfortable. It can be very difficult to find a mattress that will suit everyone and it is disappointing to hear that it was not to your preference. This is not something that has been raised here before, so we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guests preferences over the coming months. Thanks again. Lucy, Customer Services

The location of this property is lovely as it is on a quiet square in Penzance which is close to the main high street and train station. Unfortunately after making our booking the washer / dryer listed on the cottage details was removed and replaced with a standard washing machine but other than the clothes line outside we had no where else to dry our clothes and towels until we received an airer a few days into our stay. The cottage is small which is fine if you have access to a dryer or sunshine everyday so you can hang clothes outside but using an airer to dry clothes took a long time and left things smelling musty and beach towels just never dried. The shower was also completely blocked which we reported on the Monday but still hadn't been fixed by the time we left on Saturday.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We can only apologise that after you booked the property, we had to inform you of the owner's decision to replace the current washer/dryer, with a standard washing machine. We can appreciate that the lack of dryer caused some inconvenience to your stay and we will be sure to pass this over to the owners to review. We are also very sorry to read that the shower was blocked and that this was still not rectified for you. That is not the level of service that we would usually deliver. If a maintenance issue is reported, we will do everything that we can to get that rectified asap, so we can only apologise. We will investigate further how this happened to try and ensure that we do not make such an error again. We hope that you still had a wonderful holiday and sorry again. Ben, Customer Services

really comfortable, nice welcome package, easy access to town and all of west Cornwall could not fault anything.

We use this cottage regularly. It is excellent from every point of view; location, comfort, quiet, shops, restaurants, pubs, harbour, easy reach of Lands End, St. Ives etc. B.K.P.

Very enjoyable. Good value. Will certainly be back if possible.

Trevarthen is a superb place to stay. It is beautiful and has excellent facilities, the large TV, DVD and quality Hifi were all very useful. The location is fabulous as it is more or less in the centre of town and very close to the railway and bus stations.

A first class, very adequate and well managed property. I have absolutely no negative comments to make. KP.

A comfortable cottage in a quiet, peaceful square yet very conveniently positioned for shops and bus and train stations.

Superb accommodation, location excellent especially as it has a parking space. Lovely quiet square with a nice pub on the corner!

My husband and I completely loved our time at Trevarthen,peace and tranquility was very much needed. The cream tea on arrival was lovely touch,thank you. Mr anDavid Mrs Rust

Delightful,comfortable property in a very convenient location close to the main street shops and sea front. We would definitely recommend this property and we would stay there again!

The cottage is very well located near town center and walking distance of the promenade and shops. The place is very calm and having a parking place in the square is very convenient. The cottage is nicely decorated and confortable. We were pleased by the little welcome package that was awaiting for us upon arrival... A nice cream tea after a long journey is very welcomed. Definitely a place we would recommend for a stay in Penzance.

Thank you for an amazing stay. Beautiful cottage and location. We will be back to this little gem. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely family break. On arrival cream tea and a bottle of wine, everything you need to make yourself a cup of tea or coffee.Felt at home at the Trevarthen with friendly people and a wonder pub a very short distance away. This is a great place to stay and to go off and explore Cornwall. Shops are within walking distance which was very handy for us. It's our second time staying in Victoria Square and we just enjoy being there.

We both loved All the warm welcoming touches , convenient to town and parking outside the cottage, Very clean and well kept , Romantic get away Great value .recommend to all . Many Many Thanks.
