Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Penzance

sennen beach cornwallFor inspiration, why not head to Sennen Cove? This small, sheltered bay lies just one mile north of Land’s End. Notice how the tips of the seashells pop up from the sand. Marvel at those marram dunes of gold waiting to be lapped up by the turquoise sea which is slowly edging its way up from the shore. Everything floats here, people float in tranquillity, boats float on the water and the sun’s rays float upon the sea, warming it to perfection. Timid clouds hide away for the sun is master of the weather, especially in summertime.

Treat yourself to a cottage break in Penzance

This is when you feel pleased that you took the chance and booked a charming Cornish holiday home for a week in Penzance - such mild weather and a host of places to see.

For a touch of mystery and intrigue, why not visit Lanyon Quoit, a dolmen dating back to the Neolithic period, the name stands for ‘three- legged stone table’. Following on from here is the Men-an Tol, a well-known megalithic structure. The name simply means ‘stone with a hole’ but it’s purpose has never been confirmed. When you feast your eyes upon these monuments you cannot help but marvel at the awe and wonder of our Bronze Age ancestors. Why were they built, what were they used for? No-one will ever know but we all like to spend a moment or two trying to fathom it out. Flora is abundant and there is a quaint little café nearby. Lanyon Farmhouse serves traditional cream teas in a rich Cornish setting.

Everyone enjoys Cornwall’s gardens on holiday. For a spot of nature loving, why not head to Trengwainton Gardens? This is a place which certainly takes full advantage of the mild micro-climate in Penzance. Proof of this can be found in the wide range of exotic plants such as magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias. The moment you enter, your senses are filled with that sweet flowery fragrance which intermingles with a dewy hint of grass. This truly is medicine for the soul as you brush past colourful petals displayed so elegantly they look like a work of art. The garden has something for everyone, subtle, bright borders, tree ferns, sub-tropical woodland, walled gardens bursting with fruit and vegetables. Take a nice walk through the different diversions and potter into the woods, stroll past the pond and out onto the long terrace. Here you can take some stunning photos of the view across the bay.

A cottage break in Cornwall provides a comfortable place to lay your head as you dream of the fabulous scenery that you have seen, good food eaten and interesting people encountered.
