This Grade II listed property, with original features, is just a short walk from the centre of Penzance and its many attractions.

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.

    A few hiccups but they were rectified. Needs some updating with regards to carpets and sofa and also beds extremely noisy/uncomfy. House would be outstanding if these small things were changed. Fantastic location and beautiful period property. We would stay here again.

    The house has significant potential to be a delightful and impressively grand house but in its present state it gives the regrettable impression of cheapness and flimsy make do. I cannot see that there has been an attempt to provide a home from home, instead just a collection of rooms to meet basic needs. Furnished with aged odds and ends from a flea market, books almostly exclusively from 1970, baths that flex underfoot and floors that quake as you move all decry a lack of interest in investment. In all not altogether particularly comfortable or inspiring, just a building to use for a week. Cannot recommend with any warmth, rather indifference.

    The cottage was in a fantastic location with decent sea views and right by beautiful Morab gardens the house was very spacious and felt very relaxed and peaceful and also in a good location for exploring Cornwall . Wifi would have been useful for planning our daily outings . The downstairs entrance and Hal lights were not working there were several torches provided but all the batteries were dead not that we needed to use a torch though. We would return again to st Mary's house and would recommend it .the neighbours in close proximity were friendly and quiet unlike. Comments on a review we read before going about a noisy basement tenant.the basement tenant was a lovely elderly lady as quiet as a church mouse and friendly . A great stay thank you

    It is a big house, over three floors of a four-floor victorian town house. The basement is occupied by another tenant who we never met, but we did hear playing music and listening to the TV. One issue is that two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor immediately above the tenant-occupied basement so you cannot really escape the sounds from below when you are settling down for the night. The location is really good, in the heart of Penzance near to Morrab gardens. Cleanliness-wise, there were no real problems but, on arrival, we did see a note to someone who we think should have given a last "going over" before we arrived but didn't. As a result, it could have done with a bit of a hoover before we got there. No big deal, the hoover was in the hall way so doing it ourselves was quite easy, if not what you expect. Value for money: it is the going rate for Cornwall, even in February but it always seems expensive - that is probably just me. Car parking was not a problem but you have to be careful negotiating the narrow lanes on the way to the property.
