The largest conurbation in west Cornwall, Penzance is a busy town, with plenty of shops, cafs, restaurants, pubs, theatres and art galleries to explore. Penlee House, situated in a pleasant park, is home to an impressive collection of Cornish art, including work by the Newlyn School of artists. Ferries to the Isles of Scilly sail from Penzance.

Self catering accommodation is available in Penzance holiday cottages. A range of accommodation is provided further afield, including holiday cottages in Newlyn (1½ miles by road), Marazion (3 miles) and St Ives (8 miles).

Ample car parking is provided in the town’s car parks, and parking is also possible in areas along the promenade. Newlyn is a pleasant walk along the promenade (approximately 1 mile). Facilities, including toilets, are provided. Dogs are not permitted on the beaches from Easter to October.

  1. The Hoxton Special Kite School runs from Marazion Beach and Long Rock. We offer Beginner Kitesurfing lessons as well as advanced. Also Kite Buggying and Stand Up Paddle Boarding.

  2. Here at Poolside Indulgence we pride ourselves on serving good quality, affordable food in the most beautiful of surroundings. The caf overlooks the fabulous Jubilee Pool, one of the best preserved lidos in the country, and from the top terraces you can enjoy spectacular views across the bay to St Michaels Mount, and it is only a 10min walk to the beach. The menu has a distinctly Mediterranean feel, freshly made salads, hot ciabatta and pastas feature for lunchtime, whilst in the evening our attention turns to tapas.
