Carnson House is a small 18th century Guest House close to Penzance town centre and harbour. This traditionally-built Cornish granite building has a long history and has been a home, a public house, brewery and a bakery. It is now a three star bed and breakfast providing hospitality and comfort to visitors from around the world. Penzance is a natural touring base for exploring the Lands End peninsula, historically known as Penwith. The peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty, containing some of the finest coastal scenery in the country. The cliffs and beaches, accessible both by road and from the Cornish Coastal Footpath, are truly spectacular. Local places of interest include several National Trust properties, St Michael’s Mount, the artist's town of St Ives, the unspoilt village of Mousehole, and the famed Minack Theatre. Carnson House is ideal for train and coach travellers - being extremely convenient for Penzance bus and train stations, easy access to the attractions in the area is available. Books, newspapers and TV are available in the dining room and outside there is a small, colourful garden. Carnson House offers super food and comfortable bedrooms and welcomes families.
