About this listing

Burford House is a well loved family home - now used as a holiday house. It's a spacious house in which to relax. There's a small sauna in the back garden which is private and enclosed.

The space

In the heart of the seaside town of Penzance with a private garage. Set within easy walking distance of pubs, restaurants and the train station.
The enclosed small garden, home to the sauna, is set on a number of levels, with a covered barbecue terrace, ideal for an al fresco meal.
Guests can enjoy days on the beach or exploring local galleries. A hallway leads past the first bedroom with ‘zip and link’ beds and the sitting-room to the convivial open plan living area, set around an wood burn effect electric fire . The first floor is home to the master bedroom, en suite with ‘zip and link’ beds, sea glimpses and an adjoining cot-room. Across the landing lie three further bedrooms and a bathroom.
In high season this property is only available via a select agency which can be found by googling 'Burford House Penzance'.

Absolutely fantastic stay, and the hosts made such a huge effort to make the place perfect for us. From the delicious cake waiting for us when we arrived, to the baby toys put out for our little one. The house is amazing, a lovely rambling Georgian affair. Be warned its not perfect, it's a little worn. But was absolutely brilliant with the kids, where I wasn't stressing if they picked up something. Would definitely recommend for a family or group.

The house really is lovely. The pictures cannot do it justice. 9 of us went for New Years and had a fantastic time. The house was extremely clean and much more spacious than anticipated. There is more than enough space for 9 people. There are 2 living rooms, one with a decent sized TV in there. The kitchen had everything we could need (except oven gloves) and was obviously quite new and well kept. The heating was sufficient for the middle of winter and the sauna was great the one time we used it. I imagine it would be a great place in the summer- a nice Jungle-y garden out front and a lovely enclosed garden out the back. Because the house is in Penzance itself it is served by lots of shops and pubs including some big supermarkets. It is a residential area but the beach is 5 mins away by foot. The Hosts were excellent and answered all of our many questions quickly. I can highly recommend.

A bit of a traveller for work and pleasure. We bought this house because we fell in love with it. We hope to share that experience with as many others as possible so we can afford to keep it!!!
