Penzance is an ancient place, historically known for its smugglers and adventurers of the sea. It retains much of its dramatic appeal, while being a place of great beauty and gentle pleasures. Only three-minutes from the beautiful sea, you’ll find the The Pendennis guest house which has been awarded a 2015 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.

The Pendennis has been a guest house since the 1940s, although it was built in the mid-19th century and lived in by the architect who built it and other houses in the area. As a consequence of being the architect’s residence, it’s a large house and all who like spacious interiors will be impressed. Enjoy, too, the lovely patio, filled with beautiful blooms which have earned The Pendennis a Britain in Bloom 1st place award.

The Pendennis offers guests 8 bedrooms, 7 of which have en-suite facilities. There is single, twin and double accommodation. You can expect a range of conveniences to make your stay all the more pleasurable. From digital TV to a hospitality tray and free Wi-Fi, you’ll want for nothing.

Wake up from your pleasing sleep on quality linens and get ready for a delicious fresh breakfast. The Pendennis prefers to use the finest local suppliers for as much produce as possible, not least the award-winning sausages, local free-range eggs and excellent bacon. Expect a generous inclusion of Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance products, as well as home-made bread, local preserves and gourmet coffee from Cornico Coffee Company. Have your fill of fresh croissants, cereals, jams and other tasty morsels from the dresser, but don’t fill up or you’ll have no room for a scrumptious full English. As long as guests give fair notice, arrangements can be made for special dietary needs.

Penzance is considered the informal capital of Cornwall’s far west. Aside from its history and charm, it has St. Michael’s Mount, the Land’s End peninsula, the famous and intriguing Minack Open-air Theatre, superb beaches and rocky coves which might well have been familiar to smugglers of a bygone era.

The Pendennis welcomes discerning guests looking for a warm base from where to explore the area.
