Artsy hotel by the seaside 

Discover the seaside charms of West Cornwall at this unique artist designed boutique hotel. A hip and modern place to stay in the middle of Penzance’s historical old quarter.

The Location

In the historic old quarter in Penzance, this outpost is an ideal home base for exploring the compelling region of West Cornwall. The town itself is beautiful, with its stretch of promenade, the area also has a wealth of outdoorsy activity options with nearby wild moorland, as well as hundreds of sandy beaches. A great town day trip option is Falmouth (an hour away by car) with its charming seafront, great dining options, and shopping.

If arriving by air, Bristol Airport is a three hour drive away but Penzance is also served by a railway station as well, connecting you to the rest of the UK easily.

When co-founder Justin went back home to help run the family bed and breakfast in Brighton, he had no idea he would one day be overseeing a small empire alongside his wife Charlotte. Check out another one of the pair’s excellent properties we’ve included in our collection, Artist Residence Oxfordshire.

Inspired by Brighton’s vibrant art scene, he opened the doors to artists to decorate the various rooms in exchange for board. It was so successful, that he has now repeated this concept in three other locations. This innovative thinking has resulted in an original, stylish, and warm space that we can’t wait for you to discover. Check out Justin’s interview on our blog.
