Artist Residence Cornwall

Rated 8.8 in 296 reviews. 20 rooms.


A 16th century coaching inn with a new lease of life, Artist Residence is a fun and friendly retreat tucked away in the old quarter of Penzance and perfectly located for exploring the quaint fishing towns, wild hinterland and beautiful beaches of West Cornwall.

After a long day out in the open our in-house smokehouse and bar, The Cornish Barn, provides the ultimate in Cornish comfort food, with hearty dishes served straight from the smoker and a focus on the best local and seasonal produce. Retreat to the comfy bar and lounge for a relaxing evening, with a Cornish ale, lager or a cocktail crafted using Cornish spirits and ingredients.

The unique and original rooms at the 17th-century Artist Residence are each uniquely designed in an eclectic, rustic style, with a curated collection of limited edition artworks throughout. Guests have free WiFi.

The bespoke style of each bright and airy bedroom is complemented by amenities including a flat-screen satellite TV, a private bathroom and tea/coffee-making facilities. Some rooms feature statement bathtubs and log burners. Rooms are accessed by stairs only.

Downstairs guests can find the Clubhouse, an all-day restaurant, cafe and bar offering a hearty menu of smoked meats, Cornish fish and seafood and local produce in a lively atmosphere.

In the summer, guests are invited to relax in the property's festival garden, which serves cocktails and food straight from its BBQ smokehouse, and use the ping pong and Foosball tables available.

Just a 5-minute walk from Penzance’s historic seafront, there are a number of restaurants and other galleries within a few hundred metres. Penzance Rail Station is next to the Wharfside Shopping Centre, just 0.5 miles away.
