This lovely stone property, constructed out of Lamorna granite, is situated in the quiet village of Madron, just outside Penzance on a hill overlooking Mounts Bay and the picturesque St Michaels Mount. Although this cottage is located inside the village, the view from the double bedroom is stunning with a rooftop view of the Mount! The cottage is ideally suited to 2 people but is flexible enough to sleep a maximum of 3.
Madron is a central spot to act as a base for exploring west Cornwall. The dramatic, moody, west of Cornwall has a plethora of sandy sheltered coves and rocky headlands, all of which can be viewed from the South West coast path. Pip's Cottage is very close to the traditional fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole. The ancient standing stones of Lanyon Quoit and West Lanyon Quoit are all within a kilometre as is the Men An Tol with its interesting vertical ring shaped centre stone! The Celtic Madron Well was the only source of water for Penzance and Madron until the 18th Century. There is a good bus service to Penzance from just outside the cottage.
