Abbey Stables is an enchanting, romantic and relaxing holiday retreat. Renovated recently to exacting standards, it combines period ambience, with stylish contemporary amenities, all in a historic setting.
The cottage is located in a peaceful cobbled courtyard, tucked away in Penzance's old maritime heart. It is a stone's throw from the harbour side (Abbey slip, 50m away, has views over to St Michaels Mount - see photo) and has ready access to over 30 cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants all within a 5 minute walk. The iconic Art Deco salt water baths and sea front promenade are a 2 minute walk. For pedestrian visitors, Penzance railway and bus stations are only a 5 minute walk.
It also provides the perfect base to explore all of West Cornwall, with its sublime scenery, quality dining, lush subtropical gardens and vibrant art scene.
