Bed and Breakfasts in Penzance

Penzance is a market town in Western Cornwall and marks the last point on the Great Western railway line from London. It's an attractive town, dotted with a jumble of dark granite houses wrapped around the old harbour. For centuries, it's been an important port and seaside holiday resort, particularly with Victorian families, who used to catch the train to the beaches to escape the stuffy cities. As tourism numbers grew, it became home to the Cornwall's only promenade and the largest lido in the country. Even today, families of holidaymakers flock to the town every summer to stay in Penzance bed and breakfasts, spend time basking on the beaches and explore the museums and art galleries.

Country cottages, boutique boltholes and seaside-inspired B&Bs, Penzance

The bed and breakfasts in Penzance vary between charmingly traditional and achingly trendy. If you're B&B newbie, try Expedia, which lists every property, along with descriptions and photos, to help you make find the perfect match. That done, booking is a breeze and completed in just a few clicks. Some are tucked away along the harbourfront, offering views over the yachts bobbing in the water. Others are conveniently located in the centre of town. If you're looking for a boutique B&B which has all the luxuriousness of a 5-star hotel, but without the hefty price tag, you won't have to look far, or if you want to save your cash for the attractions and restaurants, try 1 of the budget options. Alternatively, nab 1 of the secluded country cottages with just a handful of guestrooms overlooking the sea from their clifftop location, further along the coast.

Whichever you choose, you're guaranteed a stress-free holiday when you book with Expedia. After you check in with the welcoming owners, you can settle into your guestroom, which comes equipped with all the facilities you might expect in a hotel room, like a kettle for making hot drinks, a digital TV with Freeview and a comfortable double bed wrapped in crisp bed linen. Some of the guestrooms haven't changed much over the years, with exposed original features and traditional decor. Others are a little more modern, with ocean-inspired furnishings that look straight out of the pages of an interior decorating magazine. You'll almost always have free WiFi and ensuite bathrooms, but if you have specific needs, like free parking spots or B&Bs that welcome pets, you won't have any trouble finding them on Expedia. After you wake in the morning, head downstairs for a freshly home-cooked full English breakfast before hitting the beaches or attractions in town. After your seaside break, why not hop on the train and explore the South West's biggest city, Bristol?

There's much more than just the beaches near your B&B, Penzance

Most families make a beeline for 1 of the nearby Cornish beaches, where they while away the days basking in the sun or learning a new water sport in the cool waters of the English Channel. If the famously changeable British weather takes a turn for the worse, there's plenty of things to do near your Penzance bed and breakfast, like visiting Land's End, the most westerly point in the country, and around 15 miles away. Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is about 10 miles away, and housed below the ground in a network of WWII subterranean tunnels, while the Zennor Wayside Museum, around 7 miles away, hosts an enormous collection of artefacts that showcase life in Cornwall over the ages. If you like National Trust properties, you won't want to miss an amble around the Trengwainton Gardens, a country estate packed with rare and exotic flora. Alternatively, more exotic life can be spotted at the Paradise Park Bird Sanctuary, in Hayle.

  • Stay in trendy boutiques without the sky-high prices of a hotel
  • Use the B&B's storage space for your water sports equipment
  • Bring the car and use the B&B's free parking spots
  • Discover new things to do and places to eat from the knowledgeable locals
