surprisingly spacious and well equipped house. Everything you need for the perfect stay winter or summer.
A perfectly delightful holiday home - beautifully furnished and decorated to a high standard, spacious rooms, 2 luxurious bathrooms, lovely secluded patio area. Everything we could wish for was provided, including unexpected delights of toiletries, bathrobes, wine, fresh flowers, and everything you need to make a cream tea!
It's an ideal location, with a Co-op at the top of the road and about 10 minutes from the bus & train station. We came by train and got around on foot and by bus, which worked very well.
Things we specially enjoyed were:
A walk round the interesting Georgian parts of Penzance - Regent Square, St Mary's Terrace, Morrab Gardens.
A matinee performance at the Minack Theatre. We booked lower terrace seats online weeks ahead, and got there over an hour before it started, so we got seats near the front. It was wonderful.
Evening meals at the Old Lifeboat, The Boathouse, and Turk's Head.
A walk along the coast from Penzance to St Michael's Mount.
Final tip - beware the gulls - one snatched my ice cream right out of its cone!
Two of us shared this lovely house for a week. We had a spacious bedroom each, mine faced the street and from my friend's room there was a view of the sea beyond the garden. The living room was very comfortable with a modern TV and constant wifi. We hadn't realised beforehand that Chapel Street is known as 'historic' and that number 26 is next door to the house where the mother and aunt of the Bronte sisters (and brother) lived before moving to Yorkshire. Close to the shops and the sea. Excellent!
