Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Penzance

Why Penzance Will Give You Something to Sing About. Cornwall is an excellent holiday destination whether you are travelling solo, taking the kids for a break at the seaside, or catching up with friends or family for a cycling or walking tour through the countryside or around the coast. The Cornish town of Penzance was immortalised in the eternally popular comic opera, The Pirates of Penzance. However, visitors need not fear being robbed (or even caught up in a rousing song), as the friendly community is more than welcoming to those who come to enjoy its gorgeous views, excellent amenities and a broad selection of comfortable cottages to rent. Here are a few compelling reasons why you should consider a cottage holiday in Penzance. Read more

Holidays in Penzance

How Beautifully Blue the Sky - In Act 1 of the musical, Gilbert & Sullivan’s chorus girls sang about the beauty of Penzance when the sun shines, and they were not wrong. The town’s coastal location on the Land’s End Peninsula means it benefits from the mild Gulf Stream air, with locals and visitors benefiting from warmer-than-average temperatures than other parts of Cornwall. Spring arrives earlier, summer stays later, and winters are more fresh than hardy. Surrounding fields and farmland aren’t only pretty to look at; they are full of tasty produce which, when coupled with the fresh fish that arrives into the harbour daily, means that you can always eat well. Shops such as Mousehole Fish sells the catch of the day either fresh and filleted for you to cook at home, or battered and fried with a steaming pile of salted, vinegary chips to eat from the wrapper on the harbour wall.

Make the Most of Fleeting Leisure - You don’t have to be a pirate on shore-leave to want to make the most of your holiday. Penzance is packed with sights and activities that will keep everyone happily occupied. Not surprisingly, given its coastal location, many of these are focused around the water and include surfing, paddle-boarding, fishing, sailing and coasteering. Businesses like Smart Surf School and Global Boarders Surf Co offer lessons and equipment hire, and you can book a sightseeing or fishing boat trip through Marine Discovery.

Promenade Beach is a mile-long stretch of coastline that is mainly shingle and accessible at low tide and within walking distance of central Penzance. Other beaches within a mile of the town centre include Battery Rocks, Eastern Green, Wherrytown and Newlyn, while Sennen Cove, Mousehole (pronounced "Mowzel") and Longrock beaches are not much further.

Attractions in Penzance and the surrounding area include the outdoor Minack Theatre (check for performances and tickets in advance of your arrival), Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, and Penlee House Gallery & Museum. Land’s End is about a 20-minute drive away, and there are extensive footpaths and cycling routes that include the breathtaking South West Coast Path and trails that take in parts of the area used as a filming location for the popular BBC series Poldark.

Threading Long and Leafy Mazes Dotted with Unnumbered Daisies - Penzance is beautiful in every season with miles of footpaths and cycling routes winding their way around the coast and through towns and countryside. In addition to the South West Coast Path, favourite walking routes include the Penzance Town Trail, which is an excellent way for new visitors to orientate themselves and learn about the town’s fascinating past. Walk, cycle or drive to nearby Marazion and walk along the causeway to reach St Michael’s Mount or, in winter, walk through the marshland to spot birds taking shelter in winter. Cycling routes are also plentiful and keep road cyclists and mountain bikers happily occupied.

Penzance is perfect for a holiday as it offers something to everyone. The town is lively, with a great mix of amenities that include friendly cafes, restaurants and pubs, appealing to those who like to socialise and be around people. However, a mile or two out of town is sprawling countryside with plenty of peace and quiet for those who want it. Penzance deserves to take centre stage with charms that are far from fleeting.
