A lovely townhouse hotel with country-house interiors, watery views, a gorgeous walled garden and excellent local food

Jean Shrimpton's Penzance bolthole sits in the old town above the harbour with views from the front across to St Michael's Mount. Outside, a tangle of lanes lead down to the water. Inside, beautiful interiors come in country-house style – a bust of Lafayette in the drawing room, an open fire in the panelled breakfast room, beautiful art everywhere you go. In summer, you decant into a peaceful walled garden for afternoon tea, a perfect spot to escape the crowds. Bedrooms are grand, quirky and laden with comfort. There are chandeliers, quilted bedspreads, French armoires and plump-cushioned armchairs. Those at the front have the view (in one you open a cupboard to find an en suite shower), the suite is perfect for families. As for the food, nip next door to the hotel's restaurant for exciting cooking. Street food waits at lunch – Thai pad noodles, Moroccan cous cous, even a mini rump steak burger; then at night it gets fancier, perhaps cucumber soup with curried scallops, wild sea bream with Bombay potatoes, Earl Grey panna cotta with orange jelly. St Ives and the coastal path wait.
