The Lynwood - 41 Morrab Road - Penzance - Cornwall - TR184EX - Phone : +44 (0)1736 365871
0n 29 September 1891 the discerning Mr Jenkins purchased from Mr Berryman a new dwelling. Number 41 Morrab (Sea Shore) Road. At this time Queen Victoria had been Queen of England for 55 years. Isambard Kingdom Brunel had just played his part in the great Industrial age, building his bridges and ships. The Newlyn School of artists, Henry Tuke, Norman Garstin and Stanhope Forbes were painting their enduring masterpieces of Cornwall. Gilbert and Sullivan had written Iolanthe and the Pirates of Penzance, while Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had still to pen yet further adventures for Sherlock Holmes.
Some 90 years later Number 41, became The Lynwood Guest house, a Victorian built retreat for weary travellers and holidaymakers. The house still retains its Victorian feel but with a sensible portion of modern conveniences for the comfort and pleasure of those who need to relax in a home from home.
Many visitors are attracted to the little villages like Mousehole and Porthleven or, Lands End an area of outstanding natural beauty, and also the Serpentine rocks of the Lizard Peninsular with the offer of locally made gifts to purchase for home. Others prefer the Minack open air theatre, or the Tate Gallery at St Ives. Amongst the many beaches in the Bay, Porthcurno and Sennen beckon the sun seekers and surfers, whilst teashops and restaurants abound everywhere for all individual palates and tastes.
Morrab Road leads down to the sea and promenade with Penzance market town being just five minutes from The Lynwood. Just a few minutes more is the rail and Bus terminus, but for those likely to visit the Isles of Scilly there is the Scillonian Ferry at Penzance Harbour (ten minutes) or of course for guests who wish to enjoy the thrill of a helicopter ride there is the heliport and Sky Bus flying over the Cornish coast to the summer Isles.
The Lynwood is a clean and comfortable family run guesthouse with seven letting bedrooms. Over the many years of service, we have gained an enviable reputation for cleanliness, cheerful and willing service and good food. We have white bath sheets, hand towels and flannels, white bed linen and white cosy dressing gowns for those rooms not providing en-suite facilities. Each room supplies a television, clock radio, hairdryer, welcome toiletries, and tea and coffee making facilities.
On our breakfast dresser we have available fruit juices, freshly prepared fruit of the season (i.e. cut melon, blueberries, raspberries), yoghurts and cereals. In addition you can also choose from a freshly cooked full ‘English Breakfast’ (bacon, egg, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage, hash browns and baked beans) or, you may prefer a vegetarian option or continental choice of croissants, jams, marmalade or honey. All our breakfasts are served with tea or fresh coffee and toast. We of course can also provide for special dietary requirements with a little notice.
The Lynwood has won 1st prize for Penzance Beautiful Britain in Bloom 2009 and 2010
