Accommodation in a Cornish listed building

These attractive apartments have been thoughtfully and sympathetically converted from a 19th century Grade ll listed Wharf House and offer superb accommodation for the discerning holiday-maker.

Located opposite Penzance Harbour, The Wharf House was constructed in 1872 from local materials of granite and delabole slate and at that time would have had direct water frontage to enable ships to load and unload their cargo.

The wide windows on the upper floors were the original loading bays and many of the beams featured in the apartments are reputed to have been made from the wood of old sailing ships.

Outstanding views of the famous St Michael’s Mount

The Wharf Apartments feature exposed granite walls and have been individually designed and furnished to a high standard, each having a sea view and most affording views across the bay to St Michael’s Mount – a magical National Trust run castle which can be accessed by an ancient causeway during low tide.

Lots of things do to locally

The Wharf Apartments are close to shops, pubs, restaurants, the cinema, art galleries and leisure facilities.

A good bus and mainline train service operates within a short distance of the property and the Cornish Way cycle route is within a stone’s throw of the building. For more information about travel please view our ‘how to get here’ page.

Spectacular sandy beaches, small coves, coastal paths, golf courses, surfing, scuba diving, sailing etc can all be enjoyed within fairly close proximity to Penzance.

Please take a look at our ‘things to do page’ for more information.


Penzance – the gateway to Land’s End

Penzance is a delightful market town which stands on the south coast on the shores of Mount’s Bay – it grew from a small fishing village to outrival its neighbours and has enormous appeal with its charming shopping streets, sub-tropical gardens, superb promenade (the only one in Cornwall), an Art Deco outdoor bathing pool and busy working harbour.

You are never more than ten miles from the other popular holiday towns including St. Ives, top beaches & coves, and the “hidden” corners of the peninsula.

The wonderful vista of Mount’s Bay from the long Promenade is a classic attraction for the holidaymaker, with views past Marazion to the Lizard Peninsular.
