The property

The Spyglass is a spacious holiday home set in the heart of Penzance with stunning views over Mounts Bay.

The property is perfect for families or large groups of friends looking to tour the wonderful South West of Cornwall.

Offering two floors of comfort and quality furnishings, the Spyglass is a welcoming accommodation that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Starting off in the games room, the children will be delighted at the sight of table tennis, a pool table and air hockey which should keep them entertained for hours.

The homely living room can be accessed by two sets of stairs and offers a comfortable space with plush sofas and a large flat screen TV to indulge in.

The addition of a splendid balcony allows you to capture some magnificent views over Mounts Bay.

Just off to the side lies the well-equipped kitchen, complete with everything you need to cook a hearty family feast.

There is a super king-size double bedroom with sofa bed and twin room on the ground floor while the remaining double can be found on the first floor.

Additionally, there are family bathrooms on both levels.

A utility room can be found on the ground floor.

Penzance offers a range of historic pubs and fine restaurants along with an eclectic selection of small shops all of which can be reached in a short walk.

Trengwainton Garden and the famous Penlee House are also worth a visit and is a excellent way to spend an afternoon.

For the keen walkers in the group, the South West Coastal Path passes through the town and ventures towards the clifftops of Land’s End.

Further afield is St Ives and it's wonderful surfing beaches and distinctive harbour.

A fantastic base for a memorable Cornish retreat.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
