Artist Residence Penzance
20 Chapel Street, Penzance, TR18 4AW,
England, United Kingdom
Distinctly hip, deliciously quirky and overflowing with colour, this groovy little bolthole is hard to resist. The house dates to 1600 and stands on the ley line that connects St Michael's Mount to Stonehenge. You're in the old quarter of town, a stone's throw from the harbour. Inside, Charlie and her staff potter about informally, stopping to chat and point you in the right direction. Downstairs, you find a cute dining room that doubles variously as a sitting room, a clothes shop, an art gallery and bar – a very sociable spot. Bedrooms are scattered about, each designed by a different artist; many have brightly coloured murals. One has a wall you can write on, another is pretty in pink, yet another shows a cartoon version of the street outside your window; in short, you sleep amid art. Most have compact shower rooms, one has a claw-foot bath. All have smart beds, white linen and toppers for a good night's sleep; family rooms have fridges, too. Back downstairs, lovely breakfasts offer honey-roast ham, local eggs, delicious smoothies. Good pubs and restaurants are very close, too.
