Make a holiday cottage in Penzance your home away from home

Occupying a tiny spot along the coast near the southwest tip of Cornwall, Penzance is a popular getaway destination surrounded by beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery. Located within striking distance of Land’s End and the Lizard Peninsula, Penzance makes a lovely holiday home base for keen walkers and hikers. It is also a popular destination for families and couples. It is one of the major transport hubs for this part of Cornwall so there is always plenty happening, but it is also really easy to escape to the beaches or the glorious countryside. Penzance is a working port with a busy harbour, and offers views across to and around one of Cornwall’s most recognisable sights, St. Michael’s Mount.

HomeAway has a number of holiday cottages in Penzance catering to all kinds of holidaymakers. Many are located right on the coast with fantastic sea views. Luxury apartments start at under £300, making holiday accommodation in Penzance an affordable alternative to holiday homes in Porthleven, another traditional and popular holiday destination. Penzance holiday homes all come fully furnished, with many also offering added amenities such as Wi-Fi, proximity to beaches, theme parks and walking trails, and the ability to accommodate pets.

Things to do

-Beaches: Praa Sands Beach located right in Penzance is one of the top beaches in the UK. The sunny beach is ideal for building sandcastles and having fun in the sun. There is a car park nearby as well as a café. Long Rock Beach is another local favourite, as is Perranuthnoe Beach, which offers great views of St. Michael's Mount. Most beaches in the area impose a seasonal dog ban.

-Outdoor activities: Penzance is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and coastline. There are excellent walking trails in the area, especially near Land’s End. Visitors staying in a Penzance holiday apartment can also make the short drive to the Lizard Peninsula to enjoy all the great coastal walks there. Sightseeing and wildlife watching boat trips also depart regularly right from Penzance, and are very popular in the summer.

-Family attractions: Families with young children can visit the outdoor Jubilee Pool in Penzance for safe swimming. Open from May to September each year, this outdoor lido is supplied by seawater and is located right on the coast. St. Michael's Mount is a lovely tidal island just off the coast of Marazion that is topped with a castle and contains subtropical gardens. St. Michael's makes for a great day out with the family. Art-loving families can visit a satellite of the Tate in St. Ives, a gorgeous town where HomeAway is also pleased to offer holiday homes.

-Food and drink: Holidaymakers can enjoy all the best Cornish cuisine in Penzance. With so much coastline, there’s plenty of great seafood to try. Popular dishes include Cornish dressed crab, fish pies, and scrowlers (sardines).

We did not use our car all week ....caught the local buses and trains and did a lot of enjoyable walking. Visitors book showed lots of repeat bookings. Hope we can go back too.

It's right in the heart of this quaint little fishing village with enough cafes and restaraunts in walking distance to not bother with cooking, even for breakfast. But if cooking is your thing you will not be disappointed; the German kitchen is beautifully equipped. We really enjoyed quality of the furnishing, and inteligent design of the interior. The sizeable garden is a massive plus in the summer I'm sure. What a find!
