A touch of urban style has arrived in Penzance, with the mix of casual comfort and arty decor provided by the 22-room Artist Residence. Each room in this converted Georgian house is different in style, though they all have organic Bramley toiletries, Roberts radios, TVs and free wifi. Some have showers, others roll-top baths. You can also book a three-bedroom cottage, if that’s what you’re after. Both the relaxed restaurant and buzzy bar – with a beer garden – focus on Cornish produce, right down to the local cider. It’s in a great central location, close to the seafront and an easy walk from the station.
With its golden beaches braced by an Atlantic breeze, charming fishing villages and winding coastal walks, Cornwall is one of the loveliest counties in Britain – and it has some appropriately lovely accommodation, too. Stay in one of the best hotels in Cornwall and you’ll be spoilt for choice. Take your pick from beach or countryside, activity or spa break, the dramatic north coast or the tranquil creeks of the south; all have first class accommodation and make great bases for exploring. To help you narrow it down to one, we’ve rounded up the best hotels in Cornwall below.
