The word Penzance is a corruption of the old Cornish word Pensans which in the ancient Cornish language means 'Holy Headland', referring to the headland to the western side of the harbour on which a chapel was established by early Christians well over 1000 years ago. Today St Mary's Church is located on the same site. At the end of the headland is the famous sea-water swimming pool, an open air Art Deco masterpiece, opened in 1935 and which today is the only one in existence in the UK.
The stunning harbour was primarily responsible for the establishing of the town, as it is the first sheltered harbour that is reached from the Atlantic. Indeed, news of Nelson's victory at Trafalgar in 1805 was brought by returning fishermen and announced at the Union Hotel in Chapel Street before it had even reached London. Further out of town, the coastal walk from Penzance to St Ives and the Tinner's Way provides breathtaking views with romantic granite scenery, historical engine houses and high moorland. With its reed beds, woodland, mudflats, reservoirs, sheltered coastal bays and open moorland, birdwatching in Penzance attracts ornithologists from all over the world. Penzance has something for everyone, and our Penzance holiday cottages are no different. With so many properties to choose from, youâll be sure to find a property you love.
Penzance's climate is one of the most temperate anywhere in the British Isles and its location ensures that spring comes earlier than anywhere else in the country which is of course a major contribution to the profusion of beautiful flora and fauna.
