About the property

Apartment in Penzance, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, Close To The Town Centre

A charming and pretty apartment located in one of the most sought-after areas of Penzance. In a quiet and picturesque listed Georgian terrace, surrounded by gardens, parks and trees, Sky Blue (the self-contained, ground floor of the owner's delightful blue house) has been completely renovated to a very high standard. The small front garden is a mass of colourful flowers and shrubs, and guests can sit in their own secluded patio area and bathe in the sunshine - perfect for morning coffee and afternoon tea. The south-facing apartment is spacious and light, furnished to combine both style and comfort and is ideally suited for couples who want to be just a few minutes stroll from the centre of this attractive and historic market town; everything is within walking distance. Sky Blue is an ideal base from which to explore the spectacular scenery of West Penwith and the bus and railway station are only 10 minutes walk away. And.. a Cornish cream tea is on the table for when you arrive!

About Romer Robins

I've lived in Penzance for the last 20 years. Previously I cooked for, and ran, a successful restaurant in Mevagissey, so food is an important part of my life. Penzance is a perfect town as everything is available 'around the corner': we have an excellent butcher, fresh fruit and vegetables, a fabulous Friday Farmers' Market and specialist food shops. There is no need to take the car out to the supermarket as it's all within easy walking distance. I want you to enjoy your stay in our lovely town and as I live in the house above Sky Blue, if you have any questions, or need to know anything, please feel free to knock on the door and ask. Enjoy your 'welcome' Cornish Cream Tea (home-made scones, strawberry jam and local clotted cream)!

What makes this apartment unique

Sky Blue is in a quiet little street but only minutes away from the town centre and all that Penzance has to offer. Penzance has been the last stop on the main line from London since the days of the Great Western Railway, and the town still feels one step removed from the rest of the county. With its hotchpotch of winding streets, old shopping arcades and grand seafront promenade, it makes an excellent base for exploring the rest of West Cornwall and Land’s End. Even without a car, the bus service can take you around the West Cornwall peninsula. The railway station will take you to many of the major Cornish towns and don't forget the Scilly Isles Ferry and the Heliport. So much to see and do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sky Blue" was a real treat.

A very comfortable and convenient stay. Lovely to have space after a London hotel room!

We felt very welcomed and the apartment was perfect. The kitchen was so well equipped and Romer was on hand to give us the spices we needed!

We would definitely reccommend staying at "Sky Blue", the owner is lovely!

First impressions, Wow, what a beautiful place! We even had a barbeque in the garden!

Turn left out the gate and walk down North Parade to Morrab Road.

Turn right and 10 minutes walk down the road will take you to our lovely promenade and the sea.

There are sandy and pebbled beaches all within close walking distance.

Before you reach the sea you may like to take a stroll around Morrab Gardens, which you will see on your left just before the end of Morrab Road.

Further Details:

Located on the shores of Mount's Bay, Penzance is Cornwall's largest and most westerly borough. Only 10 miles from Land's End, the town is surrounded by an area of Celtic culture and outstanding natural beauty.

Stunning cliffs, rocky coves, pristine sandy beaches and crystal clear seas. Moorland scattered with early Christian and Bronze Age sites form a landscape that is the heritage of a proud culture and a source of inspiration for artists, writers and poets.

Home to a thriving artistic community, Penzance is full of interesting shops and boasts one of the best gastronomic reputations in Cornwall, including award winning restaurants and some of the best fresh fish and seafood available in the country.

A stroll down historic Chapel Street, with its antique shops and beautiful architecture will eventually lead you to the sea where you will find our famous art deco lido, the Jubilee Pool.

Fishing villages, cliff-top walks, sub-tropical vegetation and a wealth of industrial and maritime heritage make the district surrounding Penzance a fascinating area to explore. All around the coastline the sea is clean and clear and for water sports enthusiasts there are excellent opportunities for surfing, kite boarding and sailing.

The 'jewel in the crown' of Mount's Bay is the island castle of St Michael's Mount. Further west lies the Minack Theatre, set dramatically in the cliffs above the sea. There are a great variety of attractions open to the visitor: Penlee Museum (in town) with it's fine Newlyn Art School collection, the Leach Pottery and Tate Gallery in St Ives, Paradise Park bird sanctuary in Hayle and many others.

With numerous museums, galleries and other attractions, in and around Penzance, plus the best Cornish food, drink and entertainment in our great range of bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs, you will never be short of things to do.

A beautiful apartment. Spacious, clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. And to top it all off, a cream tea on arrival!

Only thing to bear in mind is the parking space is quite tight, so if you have a big car, you may want to park on the road, which is a 30 second walk away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a five star review. We do have another parking space just around the corner that Dave uses and he will just do a swap for anyone having trouble parking. He has no problem accessing the space.

Greeted by Romer. Friendly warm welcome. Apartment was lovely. Cosy but spacious. Well equipped and lots of thoughtful touches. Plenty to do and see locally and bus links or car easy access to some really beautiful places.

Owner's Response: Thank you Claire for a super review. Sky Blue is certainly the perfect palce to take off from to explore the surounding area and close to some of the breath-taking locations used in the Poldark series. It's easy to leave your car here and use local transport. If you travel by train Sky Blue is close to all amenities.

Perfect base for the Coast Path

  • 5 of 5

A little gem of a garden flat in a lovely part of this interesting Cornish town. he flat is so close to the town and the sea front and yet is very quiet. Comfortably equipped with some very thoughtful touches - everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

Romer made us very welcome with a cream tea on arrival and helpful tips about Penzance and the surrounding area.

We had a great time, mostly walking on the wonderful Coast Path and it was good to be able to get to so many places by bus, leaving the car behind (in the very welcome car parking space just by the flat). On a walk around Godrevy Point we saw more than 80 seals down on the beach at Mutton Cove!

We would recommend this flat to any couple looking for a pleasant base from which to explore the amazing Coastline hereabouts. we are already planning to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for yet another great review. These happy tenants have already booked Sky Blue for two weeks in 2016. Which speaks for itself really.

A little Gem

  • 5 of 5

A lovely fully equipped spacious home from home apartment. Well situated in a quiet street with private parking but only a few minutes walk from all amenities. We loved sitting out on the pretty patio in the sunshine and sitting in the garden with the lovely owners Romer and Dave. Penlee Park just across the road is well worth a visit. We saw a performance of Alice Through The looking Glass at the open air theatre. Another place worth a visit is the quirky Admiral Benrose pub. Outside of Penzance a visit to the iconic Minack theatre is a must. We had a great holiday and to be welcomed with a cream tea was a perfect start. My partner a musician was made welcome at various jam sessions in the town. There is a diverse range of live music in Penzance.

Heaven in Penzance

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in Sky Blue. The house is one of a small number of beautiful Georgian houses each with pretty front gardens on a secluded and very peaceful street. The flat is ideal for two - comfortable and extremely well equipped. The location is perfect - one minute walk to Penlee House (wonderful art gallery/museum and cafe with the best carrot cake in town); and this is within gorgeous public gardens bordered by a tennis club. Barely five minutes away is the equally lovely Morrab Gardens with Morrab House, now a library with a fabulous collection open to members. And the main shopping street of Penzance, with bakers, delis and supermarkets is on the doorstep. Romer and Dave were great hosts and arriving to find a delicious cream tea was a real treat. We would definitely recommend Sky Blue.

Owner's Response: Dee Dee and partner came by train, they travelled around using local train and bus services and found it a breeze! I have noticed that a lot of drivers leave their car in the parking lot all week rather than negotiate around the narrow streets with all the holiday traffic. Much more relaxing!
