Great location for getting around. Vey close to bus and train station.

The property provided everything you need for a comfortable stay. We did a lot of cooking & found everything we needed for food preparation. The beds were extremely comfortable with good quality bedding provided. The location was great for exploring the surrounding area.

We had a great stay here. Plenty of space for a family. Peaceful and Private. Close to amenities and easy to travel around from. We would return.

We very much enjoyed staying at Mackerel Skies. It has a personal touch to it, as if we were staying at a friend‘s home. It is well situated, close to beach and town center. Penzance is not as overrun as some of the neigbouring places. The beach is sandy and you can walk out quite far, very family friendly. You can walk over the beach to St. Michaels Mount, a definite must-see. Chapel St. with it’s individual little shops and the Egyptian House is very nice. We would‘ve loved to have stayed a bit longer!
