The property

The Abbey is a Grade II listed mansion, dating back to 1660 and overlooking the picturesque Mount's Bay.

The beautiful, formal gardens and regal décor mean that this semi-detached holiday home provides a superior base from which to explore the delights of South Cornwall with your family and friends.

Prepare your group meals in style in this property's commercial kitchen, providing all of the fixtures and fittings that you could possibly need.

The spacious dining room is beautifully furnished to provide a lovely social spot to gather everybody together, and a large open fire sets the room off well.

Put your feet up in the mezzanine drawing room, also featuring a blazing open fire to keep you warm on the cooler days.

The bedrooms here at The Abbey are dotted across the first and second floors, the three first floor bedrooms all benefit from convenient en-suites.

All seven bedrooms are complete to a fabulously high standard, with a vintage style, and all come with Freeview TVs so you can sit and relax in peace if you wish.

Spend some time strolling through the mature gardens, with delightful sitting areas available, some showcasing wonderful views towards Penzance Harbour.

This wonderful seaside resort has something to suit every taste, from a fantastic selection of high-quality amenities, as well as an extensive sandy beach, stretching to St. Michael's Mount.

From here you can also easily reach another one of Cornwall's gems, St Ives, also offering a selection of amenities making for a wonderful day trip.

A spectacular property in an idyllic seaside location.

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.
