Property Description

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 a 25 minutes walk from the railway/bus station and 20 minutes from the town centre 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.

The best hostel I've ever been to, I could find no faults. The rooms are cosy and spacious with a heater, two armchairs, and personal reading lights, outlets, and lockers. There's breakfast and dinner options which are lovely and priced very generously. All the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. There's a kitchen, a laundry, a lounge. Excellent facilities, a wonderful stay. The area is beautiful and charming, and the woods around the hostel are scenic and delightful.

One of the best YHA hostels I’ve stayed in. It’s a bit out of town, but close enough – and the surrounds are very peaceful. The building is beautiful, the rooms spacious, the common areas warm and social, and the facilities good (laundry facilities closed). Everything was very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
