Overview

About the property

Coach House in Penzance, Cornwall, England, UK - Quiet Town Location 5 Mins Walk From Center

This old coach house stands at the end of the garden of the house in a Grade II listed terrace that it served in the 19th Century. It has been recently renovated to high standard and to current Building Regulations. It has its own South facing private granite walled garden adjacent to the old coach house of the next property. The outlook and environment is very private although it is only 5 minutes walk from the shops in the center of the town. The approach from the main road is via the mews cul-de-sac which allows for car drop-off at the front door. Free parking is in the adjacent streets. The house has central heating run by an air heat pump for green energy economy.

About Tim Drewitt

Private owner of property which has been in the family for 50 years + along with adjacent properties.

We decided to renovate ( I am an architect) rather than sell to keep the property in a good state.

What makes this house unique

The house is 5 minutes walk from the centre of the town, but is very private in its mews situation. As it was originally part of a larger historic property listed Grade II, the gardens to the South are very private. So one is in a quiet secluded environment whilst being in the centre of the town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

French guests found it a very pleasant and cosy house. Very private and nice garden. Kitchen very well equipped. Good local produce - particularly fish and shellfish.

Lovely house for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, peaceful but close to the town, the sea and easy to get out and explore the area. Well-equipped kitchen and a secluded garden to relax in.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My partner, myself and our 2 dogs have stayed at the coach house twice, it's perfect! Susie is a wonderful host - lots of information but also respects guests privacy. The house its self is great, the kitchen is fully equipped and the garden is superb, so pretty and private. You wouldn't have a clue how close to the amenities you are! We've been back 2 years in a row and I'm already planning another trip. Thanks Susie

A lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is easy to find but private and quiet - on a small backstreet close to the centre of Penzance. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable with a beautiful garden and terrace. Susie is round the corner if you need her, but respects your privacy otherwise, which is perfect. It was very nice not to have a TV, and we certainly didn't miss it as there is plenty to do - whether you want action or relaxation, or a mix! The kitchen is well equipped and the livingroom and bedrooms are comfortable. We will definitely be back!

A perfect cornish holiday

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for my husband and two grown children. One was competing at a sailing event in Marazion. We were expecting a modest little cottage and instead were treated to a gorgeous spacious and bright house. The garden was a wonderful place to relax and completely private. Our host Susie was so kind and helpful throughout the week - a complete gem. No need to bring anything as this house is well equipped throughout. We travelled easily to lands End St. Ives and several beaches so it is perfectly situated for exploring the area. We eat several times at the Admiral Bowen - delicious pies and fish. I would highly recommend this property
