St Mary's House - Facilities

St Mary’s House is an elegant Grade II listed Regency-style town house with Gothic Revival architectural features. The holiday property is approached through two wrought iron gates and overlooks the shared south-facing garden and circular gravelled driveway. Just minutes’ walk from the Penzance promenade and a short stroll to the delightful Morrab Gardens; famous for its banana plants and rare sub-tropical species. Set on three floors with an original staircase and high ceilings the property exudes memories of a bygone era. Penzance is an ideal location for exploring the delights of West Cornwall including the legendary Lands End, the white sand surfing beach at Sennen and the historic town of Marazion with St Michaels Mount rising from the sea like a fairytale castle. The Mount can be reached on foot by causeway at low tide or by small ferry boat at high tide. Marazion attracts birdwatchers from all over the UK to the marshes, a true wildlife haven. Penzance has a long flat promenade, leading past the open-air lido to the busy fishing harbour of Newlyn, one of the leading fishing ports in the country. Newlyn is also famous for its art school and galleries. Continue along the coastal path to the quaint harbour and village of Mousehole. The area has an abundance of restaurants, cafés, delis, shops and art galleries. Take a day trip to the beautiful Isles of Scilly by sea from Penzance or small plane from Lands End airport. A trip to the Minack Open Air Theatre is a must, cut into the rock face with the ocean as a backdrop and overlooking pretty Porthcurno Beach with its golden sands and clear waters. The area offers some amazing cliff and coastal walks and attracts visitors all year round. Shops, pubs and restaurants 70 yards.

St Mary's House - Reviews

  • Martin - Sheffield 23rd September 2019

    Our stay September, 2019

    Excellent property in fabulous location.

  • Carl 2nd September 2019

    Our stay August, 2019

    4 bedrooms with 3 single beds and 2 double beds and only 1 of those beds any good. For the sake of a few hundred quid per bed the owner should really replace these uncomfortable worn out beds.

    Our stay August, 2019

    Have stayed in this property many times over the past 15 years with the same group of people. Very little changes to the property/furniture which isn't an issue other than the mattresses. These are definitely all in need of changing! We said the same three years ago when we last stayed and so were disappointed to find this hadn't been addressed.

    We enjoyed a week in Penzance in July. The house is situated next to Mohaab gardens and a short walk to the sea and jubilee pool. It is also well situated for exploring Southern Cornwall. The house itself is a period property and provides ample space for a family. With great views out to the coast. It appeared that new carpets had recently been fitted. The kitchen and bathrooms are all rather tired and in need of refurbishment. Both also in need of a more thorough clean. Most of the beds seem to be ok. The double bed on the top floor though is unbelievably creaky. Every movement you make makes the bed creak and groan. This is no good if a) you require a relaxing comfy nights rest on holiday or b) if like me you are still having to go through to resettle a toddler back to sleep multiple times a night! Every time I returned to bed the noise woke my husband, to the point where it was more comfy all round for me to share the single bed with my young son. I would say this property was functional for a family visiting the area, rather than anything more.
