From Cornish myths to WW2 history, Penzance is a location with stories to tell. Stay with us for a fantastic school trip, or explore the South West Coast Path for the walking weekend of your dreams. This gorgeous Georgian mansion has a stylish café bar, a fun games room and magnificent grounds. We’re fully equipped for groups and have mod cons like free Wi-Fi, TV and individual bunk lights.
Our licensed bar lets you enjoy the Cornish sunshine with a glass of Pimms and there’s group catering available for every meal of the day. We’re happy to help schools arrange an action-packed adventure here, or advise you on some of the amazing walking, cycling and watersports nearby.
Penzance has great travel links, so it’s easy to visit top attractions like St Michael’s Mount or see a show at the breathtaking Minack Theatre. You could also visit other famous locations like St Ives, Land’s End and the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. Whether you’re learning to ride the waves at Sennen Cove Surfing School or climbing along our extraordinary coast, there’s a lot to enjoy.
