Nestled on the outskirts of Heamoor village, just a stone's throw north of Penzance, Boscrowan offers a tranquil retreat while ensuring convenient access to Penzance's bustling amenities. Heamoor, a mere quarter-mile from Boscrowan, boasts practical conveniences for guests, including a well-stocked licensed Costcutter supermarket, a cosy pub, and a tempting fish and chip shop, ensuring you're never far from essentials. You'll find all the details about these local gems inside Velvet Retreat, making exploration a breeze. Plus, the nearest bus stops are conveniently located in Heamoor, providing easy transportation options for further adventures.

Penzance itself, an ancient market town steeped in history and charm, beckons with its fine Georgian and Regency architecture and a delightful array of shops, restaurants, and cafes. From quaint boutiques to delectable eateries, Penzance offers a medley of experiences to suit every taste and preference. And when it comes to stocking up on provisions, the town is well-served with major supermarkets, including Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Tesco, Lidl, and Co-op, ensuring you have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of St. Mount's Bay, Penzance enjoys a mild climate and stunning vistas, with the historic St. Michael's Mount presiding majestically over the landscape. A highlight of the area is the beautifully restored art deco Jubilee Pool, the UK's largest open-air seawater lido, offering a safe and inviting space to soak up the sun and relax.

Foodies will delight in the diverse culinary scene of Penzance, with options ranging from fine dining at The Bakehouse to world cuisine at Mermaid Alley and comforting classics at 45 Queen St. For a taste of traditional fare, The Dolphin tavern offers home-cooked meals in a charming dockside atmosphere, while Cork and Fork tantalise taste buds with fresh, seasonal local offerings.

Art aficionados will find plenty to admire in Penzance's thriving arts scene, with galleries like Penlee House, Newlyn Art Gallery, and The Exchange Gallery showcasing works by local and international talents. And for beach lovers, the region boasts an abundance of pristine stretches of sand, from the surf haven of Sennen Cove to the unspoiled shores of Porthcurno and Praa Sands.

With its proximity to Truro, Falmouth, and attractions like The Eden Project,  Velvet Retreat serves as an ideal base for exploring the treasures of Cornwall. Whether you're immersing yourself in art, sampling local cuisine, or simply soaking up the coastal beauty, Penzance promises an unforgettable experience for every visitor.
