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).

                                                            Spacious charming fisherman's cottage

                                                            Everything about the cottage is designed for comfort and ease; a great deal of thought has gone into making it feel spacious so that it can comfortably accommodate any number from 1 to 7+ people ( especially given it has 2 bathrooms and 2 loos). It is also an all round year place to stay with its lovely wood burning stove. Located close to Mousehole harbour, walks along the coastal path, charming shops, and a great restaurant 2 minutes walk away 2 Fore Street (but book in advance for it soon gets filled), their Newlyn crab soufflé is delicious. I certainly shall be back to the cottage and will recommend it to friends.

                                                            A hugely civilised week in sunny Mousehole

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            Back in Berlowen for a week of harbour related work along the Penwith coast. Felt more like a holiday with the harbour scene framed in the windows every morning. High speed wifi and a big table for meetings very useful but the additional features of working from Berlowen included morning croissants and freshly ground coffee from the deli two doors along the harbour, the FT stocked in the newsagents another couple of houses further, crabs landed to order from the newsagent's for lunch and Cornish cream ice-cream next door to the cottage for afternoon breaks in the sun. The Coastguard and the Ship Inn both within a few hundred yards for good food in the evenings. The village is ideal for evening strolls even if not venturing further afield along the cliff paths. Beautifully designed interiors and linen bedclothes made Berlowen a great retreat. Will be back and in the winter will appreciate the underfloor heating and wood burner.

                                                            White Cottage Annexe, Mousehole

                                                            A wonderful location, peaceful and tranquil, overlooking Mount's Bay with it's changing view according to mists and weather. Plenty to do, National Trust properties to visit within close proximity. St Michael's Mount is a " must" - such an enchanting place to visit. Many walks, restaurants and nearby towns to explore. Our accommodation was excellent. Beautifully quiet and very clean and comfortable. Everything you could wish for. Thanks to Joan for her friendly welcome and attention to detail. We will certainly recommend the annexe to friends and family. Sue and Alan Bright
