Carnson House is a small Bed & Breakfast very conveniently
located in a central position in Penzance, just across the street
from the Train and Bus stations. Public car parking is available
close to the house. The town centre is within a few minutes short
walk, while the harbour is only 100-200 yards away. While being
well located for all visitors, the house is in an ideal position
for those using public transport - whether train or bus.
The history of the house goes back
about 270 years, being built in the traditional manner of solid
Cornish granite. In the past, the house has served many purposes,
both as a private residence and also, it is believed, as a public
house, a brewery, and a bakery at different stages of its history.
For the last 40 years or so, the house has provided hospitality
and comfort to visitors from all over the world as a Guest House.
