This is a perfectly situated and immensely comfortable base for holidaying in and around Penzance. Lovely parks in Penzance; walking along the coast in either direction; excellent bus services for linear trips. Don't miss the Savoy Cinema in Penzance, also 5 minutes walk. We'd like to come back in the summer for the Penlee park Open Air Theatre as well.

This is a very clean and well furnished apartment in a great location. It is very well equipped with plenty of china and utensils in the kitchen. Also, lots of wardrobe space and storage and a very comfortable sitting room. The owners have made it very homely with personal touches which were much appreciated.

We did however have issues with noise from the top floor occupants, mostly during the night. There also is a dampness problem in the apartment, mainly the kitchen area.

A well maintained and excellently located property. Just a 1 minute walk from the Promenade. Close to restaurants and pubs. We wete a fily of 4 and enough room for us all. Nice backyead area, if people had younger children

We enjoyed a lovely week in this very lovely and comfortable apartment. Lots of effort has gone in to making it very cosy and a real home from home. Well located with lots to do in the area.

What a lovely place to stay! Very homely, even had a cream tea welcome pack, milk in the fridge and tea and coffee in the cupboard. Most appreciated! Great location too, everything you could want is on the doorstep!

Fantastic location 1min to front.close ti lovely park.

A superb location convenient for Penzance promenade and the town , and a very useful base from which to explore . The apartment is very well appointed and comfortable . We would stay here again

A lovely, well equipped, super clean and conveniently located apartment with lots of welcome extras. Highly recommend.

Located within easy walking distance to plenty of nice restaurants in newlyn/penzance

Lovely and clean, cosy, home from home,

We love the location and the residence is just right for a family of four. The service is great, very easy to book and get things sorted, it just works.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed the location - it's certainly really convenient for all that Penzance offers. We're sorry that you noticed a damp feeling - in seaside areas the air can feel moist on occasion, particularly in colder weather and period properties do benefit from being warm and aired, so we'll ask the housekeeper to check the settings on the night storage heaters to keep things cosy.

Coulsons Retreat is a little gem hidden away in Penzance. Easy to get to and with great parking this is a perfect spot for anyone wishing to explore West Cornwall. Near to pubs and restaurants; the beach and Jubilee Pool this comfortable holiday cottage has all the mod cons for a family of four to enjoy. WiFi, TV’s and Blu-ray players mean that even on those wet evenings when you wish to stay in there is entertainment available. We would not hesitate to recommend Coulsons Retreat to friends and family and are already considering booking again for next year!

Lovely property, clean, well appointed and some great attention to details. We've stayed twice now and will certainly look to book again!

Furnishings/comfort/fab kitchen/decor/lovely bathroom/location/parking. I loved the complimentary cream tea and the provision of milk and teabags. And that we didn’t need to bring towels or bedding. We thought the apartment beautiful and we had a lovely holiday. Thanks..

Very quiet surroundings and ideal for all the daily needs.

Quiet, secluded location in the regency area of Penzance close to Morrab Gardens, Penlee Museum and Gardens, Regency Square yet close to the seafront.

Well kept communal gardens at the front of the property with attractive, well stocked planting and stress free parking.

Homely, attractive furnishings and particularly appreciated the modern bathroom with underfloor heating

A really nice extremely well-equipped cottage in a quiet neighbourhood very close to the city centre.

Perfect apartment for a family, great location, everything that you could need. Don't be worried by the state of some of the houses as you enter the drive, Coulsons Retreat is in really good condition! We'll be looking to return next year!

Had Stayed for 2 weeks but then had to return to Cornwall a week later at very short notice ( Funeral)-our earlier stay was so good we hoped we could return to Coulsons. We were able to return for the week- many thanks to the owner ( Classic) for being so helpful. Would want to continue going to Coulsons in the future as so good

This flat has everything- extremely well equipped and thought out. Quiet but perfectly located for the sea front, Penzance town centre and Morrab Gardens with lots of different places to eat nearby. Parking space a bonus.

Wonderfully comfortable and equipped in brilliant location, will definitely visit again

High standard of equipment and furnishing. Very clean, quiet and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We have stayed at a great many holiday cottages around Cornwall and keep returning to Classic for the simple reason that we know that we will find exceptionally high standards. We have never been dissapointed!

It's in an excellent position for the promenade, restaurants and shops. The property is very clean.

5* stay, peaceful and so near the prom, pure delight.

A newly refurbished property with all necessary comforts in a great location.

Beautiful apartment, good location and parking provided. A real home from home experience, a lot of thought has gone into this apartment.
