West Cornwall Cottages

The most westerly end of Cornwall has drawn people to it for hundreds of years. From Land's End to St Ives and over to St Michael's Mount, there's a plethora of places to explore.

The ancient landscape and special quality of light of the Penwith peninsula have inspired artists and storytellers for hundreds of years. Today, St Ives is still a Mecca for artists, the pristine sands at Sennen are a favourite hang out for surfers, while the fairytale St Michael's Mount castle at Penzance is a reminder of the far west's rich heritage of myth and legend.

Several unique headlands such as Clodgy Point, Porthcurno with the Minack Theatre and Land’s End, form the west Cornwall coastline that stretches around to Mount’s Bay, home to St Michael’s Mount. They bound the geography of lush greenness that is the Penwith peninsula. Accommodation varies like the topography, with tiny fisherman’s cottages around the harbour at Mousehole, town houses with sea views in Penzance and rural retreats around Cape Cornwall.

The west Cornwall has a history of artistic integrity, the origins of its international renown based in the schools of art founded around Newlyn and St Ives. The nautical theme inspired the conception of many galleries and the vibrant art scene is still there today. Many a self catering cottage in west Cornwall is adorned with local paintings, and some are decorated with relevant seaside themes.
