We are often asked for advice on where to stay in Penzance, so we have put together a handy guide.
People come from near and far to visit the workshop to choose their jewellery. We suppose it helps that we are based in just about one of the most beautiful areas of the UK. While we still can’t quite believe that holidays are booked around visiting us, we can’t blame them. Any excuse for a trip to Cornwall is valid by us. That said, it’s quite rare that one stays in a B&B in their hometown, so these suggestions are based mostly on the experiences of family members, friends and our visitors.
The Sail Loft Lookout - PenzanceLocated right on the quayside, this apartment holds bundles of history and a view. The sea once came right to the side of this building. Boats would offload goods right through what are now lovely big windows. With beautiful wooden floors, comfy beds and room for friends or family to tag along – this makes a lovely self-catered option!
The Artist Residence - PenzanceWhile we don’t know of anyone who has stayed here (yet), we had to include it for its lovely decor (pictured above)! We can however vouch for the lovely beer garden and bar downstairs. Even if you don’t stay here it’s worth popping in for a drink at The Barn.
Warwick House - PenzanceA lovely B&B right on the sea front – perfect for evening walks along the prom. If you are up and out early, you’ll spot all the brave grannies going for a sea swim in their cozzies – whatever the weather!
YHA - PenzanceGeorgian mansion turned youth hostel. There are lots of different options here, from budget shared rooms, private rooms and even glamping in the garden. If you fancy an adventure – you could possibly walk across fields to the workshop (although we haven’t tried it!).
The Gurnards Head - ZennorYou can’t miss this brightly painted pub near the cliffs at Gurnards Head. Brilliant food and the most comfortable beds ever (that’s first-hand from Issy). It’s a little drive from Penzance, but very worth it. In the winter they do great dinner, bed and breakfast deals! The Coastguard (reopening in the new year) in Mousehole is her sister pub and very nice too.
Worth-En-Alls Campsite - Prussia CoveA beautiful campsite right on the coast. The facilities are rather rustic and that may well be part of what makes this one of Justin’s favourite local camping sites. They also have a selection of quite stunning properties available for week stays. One has a bath in the garden!
Treen Campsite - Logan RockEqually as stunning but very hard to get in as they don’t take bookings. There may be a system, but we don’t know it 😉 Turn up with your fingers crossed. There is a great pub in the village nearby.

Can you tell we like camping? This is another lovely spot, a bit bigger than the other two and perhaps the more luxurious of the three. With heated bathrooms, a cafe and a restaurant, not to mention visiting food vans. If you would like to book an appointment to visit the workshop you can do so here.
