Woodstock Guest House:
enjoy a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming stay in Penzance

A Victorian town house

Woodstock Guest House is our beautiful Victorian town house situated one minute from Cornwall’s only sea front promenade and only a few steps to the gates of the tropical Morrab Gardens.

Woodstock is on the same road as Penlee Park, within easy walking distance of the town centre and a short taxi ride from the bus and railway stations.

One minute from the sea

Penzance itself is ideally located for visiting the historic St Michael’s Mount, Lands End and many of the stunning beaches, quaint harbours and fishing villages nearby.

Art lovers will appreciate the Penlee House Gallery and Museum in the beautiful setting of Penlee Park, just a short walk from Woodstock Guest House. Poldark scenes, Rosamunde Pilcher locations, Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, plus several beautiful gardens are well worth a visit and are all within easy reach.

A warm welcome!

We trust that you’ll find our guest house welcoming and comfortable, and chose to stay with us.

If you got any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

What our guests have to say…

The reason for contacting you is to compliment you on your excellent accommodation and friendliness. Last night in Plymouth the guest house was rated 4 star and yours was by far better in all aspects. I am now in Exeter and again yours completely outshines this guest house in all aspects. If you wasn’t so far away, I would be making regular visits. Many thanks for a very pleasant stay and I will definitely be recommending you to anyone heading that way

JAMES CARNILL: a lovely Stay

Woodstock Guest House is in an ideal location very close to the seafront and Morrab Gardens. Run by a very nice couple, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast.

DAVID MARTIN: a great location and great host

Nicki is a genuinely great natured hostess that makes you feel welcome from the get go…clean rooms but small in US standards but this is what you come to the UK for some old fashioned history, couple of good pubs within short walking distance and great views abound.

ERIC BOTTOMLEY: excellent in all aspects

I stayed in a single en-suite room which had space to move – this is not always the case. Excellent hospitality and the breakfast was superb; the fried egg was the best ever. Thanks to Nikki and Jon.

KAREN ROYAL: wonderful stay

Our accommodations were wonderful – we were upgraded to a larger room at no cost and were very comfortable! Our host made sure we had everything we needed and served a beautiful breakfast.
