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).

Weather in Penzance

Because South West Cornwall is surrounded by the sea, Penzance is largely protected from extreme weather conditions.

Spring usually arrives quite early in Penzance, with warm temperatures around 20°C prevailing throughout the summer.

Travel to Penzance

Brilliantly catered for. Very kind to put washing up liquid etc. You don't always want to buy such small amounts. Enjoyed it immensely. Lovely.

It is an easy walk into the village but a bit steep on the way back. If the weather is bad there is no need to go out, you can sit in the lounge/dinner and watch the view through the large corner windows. There is parking in the road outside the house, which is the last property in the road at the top of the hill. There are several good cafes and restaurants in the village. An excellent property.
