Eccentric Seaside Charm...

Artist Residence Cornwall is a boutique hotel in Penzance which brings a slice of eccentric charm to the dreamy lanes of the historic town. With 22 eclectically decorated bedrooms and a cosy 3-bedroom cottage, the revitalized Georgian pile is a unique seaside inn perfectly situated for daily forays to the beaches, and the Isles of Scilly, a short stroll from the pubs, restaurants and bars of Penzance town centre, the unique art deco lido and a sea view of the fairytale that is St Michael's Mount.

Downstairs, The Cornish Barn smokehouse is a buzzing community hub, serving up glorious feasts of locally sourced meat and fish, while the laid-back, intimate bar and secret terrace garden are the perfect after-dinner hideaways.
