About Linda Parker

I am originally from Cornwall and love the Penzance area. I have tastefully furnished the house and hope you will appreciate my attention to detail and enjoy your stay in this lovely part of the world.

I now live in France.

I have a brilliant housekeeper who lives in Penzance to help and advise you.

Beautiful house. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This house surpassed expectations. Well appointed. Unique touches set it apart from anywhere else we've stayed. Warm, comfortable and well situated. Mike the housekeeper does a fantastic job looking after the house. Close to shops and restaurants but very quiet. Turning into the access road can be tricky if people have

parked opposite the turning, but we soon got the knack. Overall very well equipped though we could find only one saucepan plus a milk pan.

Our booking was dealt with promptly by the friendly owner.

Enjoyed our October week exploring the local area.

Really great house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house, surprisingly spacious, modern and extremely clean. Also very well equipped and with a sunny courtyard garden. As others have previously commented, it was tight turning into the lane but genius husband driver soon got it down to a fine art. Great location in town centre allowed for fresh croissants every morning and walking distance to a variety of great eating places. Highly recommended. Thank you also for the lovely cold bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. A welcome touch.

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious for us a family of 4 (2 kids). Clean, decorated to a high standard and is very pleasing to the eye. It is a peaceful place, great to return to at the end of a day on the beach or visiting places of interest. Is very well positioned too with its own parking space. Grocery store is less then 1 minute away and is open from 7am-11pm so you can stock up on milk, bread, fruit and anything else you need. Restaurants and a local gym are also a few minutes walk. Everything works very well and though a small leak came from the shower units the friendly Housekeeper Mike next door will fix this easily. Its a great place. Seagulls in August do make noise at night but we used a night time sea waves sound App from our smart phones to drown it out and slept very peacefully on what admittedly was a more comfortable bed than my own. If you choose this place to stay you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

Property is situated in a great location within easy access to pubs/restaurants for evening meal out. Penzance is an ideal location as a base, lots of great places to visit around the coast. St Ives only 20 mins away! Would definitely stay again when visiting Cornwall.

Perfect For Exploring Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

First the essentials, the house was comfortable, clean, everything worked, everything I needed for the stay was there and Linda was very responsive answering questions and completing the booking process.

Second, location, it is great! The house is tucked away in a quiet little corner just a couple minutes walk from everything. There are several great restaurants, a Co-op grocery, Cornish deli, and shops galore all within two to three hundred yards of the house. I was without a car and relied of public transportation (a space is provided with the house if you have one, a big advantage in Penzance) and there was a bus stop right around the corner and the train station was an easy walk of about 12 - 15 minutes. And the waterfront was only a few minutes walk and I could stroll down the promenade to Newlyn and photograph the fishing fleet.

I hope to return to Cornwall in the next couple of years, this is where I would stay again and would not even bother looking at other locations.
