Property Information:

Enjoy the best of all worlds. Staying at this recently refurbished mansion allows you to explore artistic Penzance and gives you easy access to historic Cornwall. Relax on sandy beaches, or stroll on the coastal path for stunning cliff-top scenery.

This Georgian mansion has been refurbished to a high standard. Set in beautiful gardens, its only 15 minutes walk from the town and seafront. Penzance is an excellent base for exploring the local area and it is the departure point for sailings to the Isles of Scilly. Visit St Ives or Sennen Cove, try surfing or just relax on some of Europes finest beaches.

Get the festival-inspired glamping experience with a beautiful bell tent. These sophisticated and spacious tepee-like tents are fitted out with a double bed and three single beds - enough room for 4-5 people to chill out in. Facilities include flooring, beds, basic furniture ( bean bags etc) solar lighting and bedding. The product described as 'Tent' is actually a Bell Tent.
