Welcome to THE PIRATE’S REST Family Holiday Accommodation in Penryn, Cornwall


Steeped in legend and history, in its heyday Penryn exported granite all over the world from the banks of the river where two creeks meet in south Cornwall. Today, the remaining old buildings can still be seen and enjoyed by thousands of visitors who flock to this much-loved holiday region.

This luxury cottage accommodation is located at the rear of St Mary’s House just yards from Falmouth Harbour.

Penryn stands tall today as a hub of Cornish culture, and its galleries and boutiques have shaped today’s Cornwall since its creation as a market town in 1259. We simply love all the stories of the pirates of Penryn. And with such colourful beginnings, Penryn town and tales of her pirate deeds have become steeped in Cornish legend and mystery.

What better way to explore the area than from the laidback luxury of The Pirate’s Rest – a self-catering cottage that is ideal for the whole family to enjoy, and easy to explore all of Cornwall on your holiday.

Offering tasteful and welcoming pirate-themed accommodation planned with families in mind, The Pirate’s Rest provides all the ease and comfort of home, with the care and attention to detail you expect from a privately owned holiday venue.

Spend your days experiencing the extraordinary attractions and beauty spots of timeless Cornwall and then unwind in cosy luxury of The Pirate’s Rest.
