Dating back to the late 1800’s Torwood was built as a large family house. All original doors and features where possible have been retained, in the dining room by the marble fireplace you can see the service bell, that would have been used at that time. Updated with care to provide all rooms with en suite facilities and modern day comforts, we hope that the historical features of the house still remain intact.

The beautiful Victorian house is three stories high and is situated in a large tree lined avenue just off from the seafront, there is unrestricted parking at the front of the house and also a small garden for guests use on those sunny Cornish days.

Just 8 miles lies the stunning outdoor theatre The Minack and three miles the historical St. Michaels Mount, which makes Penzance and the Torwood an ideal base for touring the far west of Cornwall. Also situated 28 miles off the coast are the stunning Isles of Scilly, which can be visited one of two ways, either by boat during the summer months, or plane all year round.  There will also be the option of the helicopter in late 2018.
