I like to take my dog when I go on holidays and would like to offer guests an opportunity to do the same. However, parts of the fence surrounding the garden are quite low and will not stop a dog wishing to escape. Please obtain an approval and pay a fee before bringing your dog.

Penzance is located in a quiet residential street but just around the corner from the main street with a variety of shops and cafes. The supermarket is also a short walk away.
If you don't feel like cooking, have breakfast at one of the nearby cafes and save money by not paying B&B charges.
Penzance stands in the middle of the historic Moonta township and is surrounded by numerous heritage listed buildings. The so called 'Copper Triangle' is well known for its Cornish heritage dating back to mid 19th century. The historic Moonta Mines State Heritage Area is nearby and offers a fascinating insight into the old mining practices.
Beach, fishing, golf
Penzance is only a short drive away from delightful safe beaches. Our favourite one is the South Beach 4 km away at Port Huges with its wonderfully warm water but there are several others. There is a small water park at Moonta Bay and a much larger one at Wallaroo. The North Beach located in that area is very long and vehicles are permitted to enter.
The area is famed for its plentiful fishing. There are several long jetties and Port Huges ramp is one of the most frequented in the state.
Golf is very popular in Moonta and there are several courses in the area. The better known one is The Dunes originally designed by Greg Norman and is located just a short drive from Penzance.
