A slice of eccentric charm

Bringing a slice of eccentric charm to the dreamy lanes of historic Penzance, Artist Residence Cornwall is a revitalized Georgian pile with 22 eclectically decorated bedrooms and a cosy 3-bedroom cottage. Perfectly situated for daily forays to the beaches, and the Isles of Scilly, a short stroll from the art deco lido and a sea view of the fairytale that is St Michael's Mount.

Downstairs, The Cornish Barn smokehouse serves up glorious feasts of locally sourced meat and fish with seasonal tasting plates, while the laid-back intimate bar and secret terrace garden are the perfect after-dinner hideaways.

Eat & Drink

  • The Cornish Barn Smokehouse & Bar

    The Cornish Barn is a rustic restaurant, bar and smokehouse serving a wholesome menu with a focus on fresh Cornish produce. Starters make good use of foraged and seasonal ingredients, whilst meat and fish is cured, hung, smoked and charred for a rich and distinctive flavour.

    All this is helped along by craft beers and wines from local independent vineyards.

  • Bar & Lounge

    Settle in to our homely bar and lounge, complete with log burner and serving a range of Cornish lagers, ales and cocktails crafted with foraged ingredients and Cornish spirits. Comfy and cosy, this is the perfect spot to relax after a long day with a glass of wine. Open daily.

  • Terrace & Garden

    When the weather's on our side, there's nothing quite like soaking up the Cornish sunshine, ice-cold beverage in hand, or perhaps with a game of ping-pong?
