Outstanding, unusual and cozy house
Such a beautiful and unusual home, we absolutely loved our stay here and are already planning to come back in the Winter. The interior of the apartment is fascinating, with curved hallways and double staircases, it's also really wonderfully furnished, with comfy sofas, gorgeous and well-stocked kitchen and two big, clean bathrooms. There was even a DIY cream tea and a vase of flowers set out for us on arrival - how nice is that! The house is so comfortable and luxurious It's just a pleasure to be in there. On top of all that, there's a games area with ping pong, pool and air hockey and a fabulous view over the bay which you can see from your lounging spot on the couch. It's also about a minutes walk to one of the main streets of Penzance with pubs, cafes and shops right there. Honestly, is there anything else you need? The only tiny thing is that the downstairs bedroom has no blind and gets very light, so if that bothers you, bring an eye guard.

An Amazing holiday in an amazing venue
2 days left of our 14 day holiday at the spyglass remaining and just confirmed our booking for the same time next year - fabulous time enough said

Spyglass is a breathtaking property
As soon as we walked through the door we knew we were in for a treat. The whole house has been recently refurbished to a very high standard. Before our holiday was over we'd booked Spyglass for 2019. The space is luxurious and the views are nothing short of spectacularly breathtaking. I would be stupid to recommend Spyglass because that means I'd have to share it. So be it!
