Penwith House in now closed for essential winter maintenance, and will re-open in 2017.
Penwith House was originally built in 1860 as a temperance hotel for Victorian visitors to Land’s End who preferred an establishment that provided soft drinks only, with no alcohol on the premises. Today, this charming old building is home to a shop selling nautically-themed gifts, souvenirs and confectionery.
Penwith house is also home to local artist Wendy Williams’ studio and gallery, where you’ll find an impressive collection of Wendy’s original oil paintings and prints for sale.
