If you're looking to stay in an ecologically friendly guest house in the heart of Penzance, then look no further than the Blue Seas Hotel. Set just half a mile from the main bus and train station, Penzance is easily reached by rail from Scotland, London or other UK locations.
Penzance is a perfect base from which to explore Cornwall, with its white sandy beaches, historic landmarks and the amazing Minack Theatre – the perfect spot to take in some outdoor Shakespeare whilst watching the stunning sunset over the cliffs.
The Blue Seas guesthouse is a delightful Grade II listed building, set in a Regency Terrace, with views looking out over Mount's Bay. It's safe to say that this is one of the best locations to stay in Penzance! Most of the rooms come with stunning sea views.
With free broadband and internet access, you can enjoy a working holiday at the Blue Seas Hotel, although once you see the home cooked breakfast, all thoughts of work may well go out the window! All food is locally sourced with eggs from nearby Pengoon Farm, sausages and hogs pudding from Lentern's Butchers in Penzance, roasted and smoked salmon from Penryn and bacon from the Cornish Farmhouse Bacon Company. Even the yoghurt, cream and butter is local, from Gawas Farm near Helston. Breakfast here truly is to die for, with a choice of English or Vegetarian full cooked breakfasts as well as a range of other options including sautted field mushrooms on muffins with poached eggs and bacon. It's a guilt free experience too – travelling by train cuts your carbon footprint compared to flying and with all breakfast ingredients sourced from local businesses, you can munch away happily whilst feeling incredibly environmentally friendly!
Whilst the hotel may be a listed building, the rooms have a light, fresh and contemporary appeal, with free wireless internet available in every room and delightful little welcoming touches such as homemade biscuits and Isle of Scillies fudge provided on arrival.
There are many long sandy beaches to explore and sheltered coves in which to fish nearby, as well as sub-tropical gardens to wander through at Trengwainton, Trebah and Trelissick. Or why not head for The Eden Project, Britain's most exciting tourist attraction that will appeal to young and old alike!
After a week of soaking up the sun, taking in some outdoor theatre and perhaps a spot of local shopping, it is just a short journey by train to London. Why not combine your trip to beautiful, relaxing Penzance with a theatre break in the West end. http://www.boxoffice.co.uk is truly spectacular, with shows year round from musicals to circus extravaganzas and comedy to children's pantomimes. There are many websites where you can book a theatre and hotel deal and after the relaxation of Penzance, the hustle and bustle of London will seem all the more exciting!
