A perfect retreat for a couple to relax, The Chocolate House is a beautifully renovated 18th Century cottage set in iconic Chapel Street in Penzance. Although located close to the heart of the town, The Chocolate House is quiet and tranquil. Its modern, well-equipped facilities combine historic character and modern convenience.
Open the door and step inside the 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 double bedroom and a bright snug which gives you access to the roof terrace, with limited views of Penzance harbour and the sea beyond.
It is ideally located in one of the oldest and most historic parts of Penzance – 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 Gardens and Penlee Park with its open air theatre.
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 clifftop Minack Theatre, Land's 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 parking space is available, a car is not essential.
