Explore South West Cornwall

While The Bell Tower is occupies a prime position in the centre of Penzance, Middle Colenso Farm is located in a peaceful rural setting, half way between Penzance and Helston and just a five-minute drive from Prussia Cove and the South West Coast Path. Some of the county’s finest beaches, historic sites, gardens and art galleries are all within easy reach of both properties.
