The Chocolate House is a beautifully renovated 18th Century cottage. Its modern, well-equipped facilities combine historic character and modern convenience. It is ideally located in one of the oldest and most historic parts of Penzance – iconic Chapel Street, with its variety of fine buildings of unique character, offering an eclectic mix of pubs, restaurants, bookshops, treasure-filled artisan and vintage shops, and the eye-catching Egyptian House. The cottage is within a short walking distance of the promenade, the art-deco Jubilee swimming pool, Penlee Art Gallery and Museum, Morrab sub-tropical gardens and Penlee Park with its open air theatre.
Although located close to the heart of the town, The Chocolate House is quiet and tranquil. Open the door and step inside the deceptively spacious open plan sitting-room with a separate dining-area. The modern, well-equipped kitchen is lit by a large skylight. Steep stairs lead up to the first double bedroom and a bright upper sitting-room, which gives you access to the roof terrace, with limited views of Penzance harbour and the sea beyond. Another flight of narrow and steep stairs leads up to the second double bedroom, which stunning sea views from the seats in the corner window.
Penzance is perfectly situated for touring the West Cornwall peninsula – coastal path and moorland walks, stunning beaches, coves and gardens, St. Michael's Mount, the cliff-top Minack Theatre, Lands' End, St. Ives with beaches and its Tate gallery, and much more. The cottage is a short walk from the railway and bus stations, and there are good local public transport links. Whilst a car park space is available, a car is not essential.
