Situated on the water’s edge of Penryn River, Artist’s Residence’s surroundings are as charming as its interior. Inside, the multi-purpose, open-plan living space is finished with wooden flooring, modern furniture, and homely touches. We particularly love the glass doors that open out onto the deck and water and let lots of lovely natural light flood through into the front of the house.
The outdoor dining area is made for morning cups of tea and buttery breakfast pastries. On sunny afternoons, soak up the sunshine of the Penryn River or take your kayaks for a paddle from the boat park opposite which is available for guests. When evening falls, sit snuggly with a glass of red under a blanket to watch the stars glitter in the glassy reflection. Keep your eye out for the swans and kingfishers who have made themselves at home in and around the water.
The shaker-style kitchen is tucked away neatly and is equipped with everything you’ll need for your self-catered holiday and deli delights abound from nearby Bailey’s Country Store. However, if you’re seeking to dine out, a selection of excellent eateries such as PizzaPls, Muddy Beach, Sunshine Cafe and Yoga Studio and Bango Kitchen are all a short walk from the Artist’s Residence.
Upstairs the smartly decorated bedrooms are lovely places to slumber or retreat to with a holiday read. Treat yourself to a relaxing soak in the bathtub after a day of exploring Cornwall, with a glass of something sparkling, perhaps.
Children crab from the deck, whooping with glee at their haul. A few steps take you to a pedestrian bridge which in turn leads to the exclusive landing opposite Artist’s Retreat, where you can launch paddleboards and kayaks for your coastal adventure.
The creative and vibrant town of Falmouth is a few minutes’ drive away – head here for your fill of interesting galleries, boutique shops, live music, historic landmarks, and gorgeous views of the estuary. Situated a few miles to the East of Penryn in Cornwall, beautiful Enys gardens and woodlands are a haven of tranquility. On your doorstep, meander Penryn’s historic warren of windy streets, period buildings, and quaint local pubs, or don your hiking boots and take the stunning walk to Flushing village from St Gluvias Church, along picturesque paths.

Location and Surrounding Area
Follow the creative crumb trail out of Penryn along the river and find yourself in Falmouth town. Here you’ll discover an endless array of independent shops, cool coffee shops, and stylish galleries. Dive down hidden opeways and revel in views of bobbing boats and architectural gems on the opposite bank. Catch the ferry over to the stylish neighbouring town of St Mawes, being sure to look out for marine wildlife on the way. Continue through the harbour town to reach the historic Pendennis Castle and around the headland to the golden sands and lapping waves of Gyllyngvase Beach.
Food lovers rejoice at the endless eateries in both Penryn and Falmouth. Pop over to the artisan pizza parlour, Pizza Pls in Penryn, indulge in Asian fusion dishes from Bango Kitchen, and opt for nourishment and wholesome bowls at Sunshine Cafe. If you’re interested in horticulture, fill your days exploring the nearby gardens of Enys or subtropical Glendurgan, Penjerrick, Fox Rosehill, and Trebah, where clouds of hydrangeas, thick forests of bamboo, and canopies of exotic blooms await.
Further afield, the white shores of Kynance Cove and the spectacular open-air theatre of Minack are 45-60 minutes’ drive away. Exhale a whistle of awe at the county’s old tin mines which pepper the countryside and clifftops, and remind visitors of Cornwall’s industrial past. Take a trip to the arts town of St Ives, home to the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth and the famous Leach Pottery.
