The Abbey

Set high above the historic harbour in Penzance overlooking the world famous Mount's Bay towards St Michael's Mount is The Abbey, one of Cornwall's most important listed buildings dating from 1660.

With its secluded walled garden, courtyard and period features, this Grade II listed semi-detached holiday home allows you to discover true comfort and provides a relaxing and casual, yet elegant atmosphere for up to 14 guests.

Your Penzance holiday property is set over three floors and has the feel of a smart country house, exuding quality and style throughout.

On the mezzanine is an historic drawing room with a roaring open fire, large gilt mirror and walls of books, along with huge arched windows that rise to the ceiling and open out onto the garden.

The oak-panelled dining room with two round tables, sitting 12 in total, and comfy sofas, and the enormous kitchen with commercial oven, allow the chefs amongst you to cater for the maximum number of guests in comfort.

The seven bedrooms are split between the first and second floors, with the three on the first floor boasting en-suite facilities, and all add to the character and unique feel that can be seen throughout this mansion.

Surrounded by rare sub-tropical flora and fauna, The Abbey boasts a private walled garden with its cobbled pathways and luscious lawn to provide the perfect setting to lose yourself in a novel, take an afternoon cream tea, a refreshing glass of something cool or even a game of croquet.

Numerous gastronomic choices at its many restaurants, bars and cafes are all a short distance away while an active entertainment, recreational and sporting scene assure there is always something to do for young and old alike.

The list of outstanding attractions in this beautiful area of Cornwall ranging from ancient monuments and historic sites to dramatic beaches, cliffs and fishing villages is endless and are all within easy reach.

The Abbey was the most amazing house we ever stayed in. Wish we never had to leave. It felt so much like home. God bless Thaddeus and his team. Wonderful host and amazing property and proximity to all points of interest.

The Abbey is truly a special place to stay. It really lives up to the images in the brochure. Beautifully furnished, very comfortable and well equipped. The gardens too were gorgeous, we all fell in love with this place and hope one day to return. Happy memories for all the family.
