About Nigel Waller

Originally abandoned the world of banking to go fishing on a boat out of Newlyn in West Cornwall. Went diving for Cray Fish and Sea Urchins and then qualified as a professional deep sea diver working off oil rigs etc. Became a property developer - purchased this huge wharfside building in a state of dereliction and initially converted it into a big restaurant , entertainment venue and gift shop by the harbour front. In recent years I converted the entertainment venue into holiday apartments as we have today. I still retain a Seafood and Steak Bistro called the Boatshed. All my guests in my apartments and other properties benefit from a 10% discount when they dine in my restaurant.

Nigel Waller purchased this apartment in 1981

Why Nigel Waller chose South West Cornwall

One of the oldest Character buildings on the harbour in Penzance. It formed part of the original quay side for old Sailing Ships to unload their cargoes. Beneath the ancient timbers of the old this old Wharf-side store masters out of Rio or homeward bound East Indiamen transacted a bargain or two amongst the rich aromas of 'Geneva Gin' @ Schnapps ' and 'Turkey Twist '.

What makes this apartment unique

We meet and greet all guests and help to advise on all the best places to see and visit during your time here. We are also always on hand should you need any assistance or further advise. Our head house keeper is also always on hand should you need any extra laundry or laundry change.

Traumhafte Ferienwohnung und sehr netter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatte eine sehr schöne Woche in der Ferienwohnung. Der Vermieter ist sehr hilfsbereit und nett. Die Wohnung ist ein Traum, liebevoll dekoriert und ganz toll eingerichtet. Die Betten sind herrlich bequem und das zweite Bad ein echter Luxus. Haben uns sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, gemütllich und super zentral gelegen. Von dort aus kann man an jedes Ziel bequem kommen. Schade das die Tage so schnell vorbei waren. Danke Nigel, für die herrliche und wundervollen Zeit. Wir wünschen von Herzen alles Gute. Beste Grüße von Heino, Max und Sabine

Penzance is situated on the coastline of Mounts Bay, overlooked by the beautiful St Michael's Mount. Penzance enjoys the most temperate climate of the British Isles while early spring flowers, vegetables and other produce demonstrate the mild weather conditions experienced here. The town retains much of its original character which developed from a small fishing village, and it's close proximity to a multitude of attractions and holiday beaches, makes it an exciting holiday base.

Take a stroll along the magnificent promenade and enjoy the lively mix of galleries, stylish restaurants, shops, cafés and pubs. Penzance is home to three world class galleries, The Exchange, nestled just off of Chapel Street; one of the oldest street's in the town. Penlee House Gallery and Museum and nearby Newlyn Art Gallery. A short walk along the coastal path to Newlyn, you will be greeted by the hustle and bustle of a working fishing town; the heart of the Cornish fishing industry that is still one of the most successful in England. Two miles south of Newlyn lies Mousehole, a tiny fishing village full of character and charm. Famous for its narrow streets and and quaint granite cottages.

The road and rail links surrounding Penzance make it the ideal base to explore the beautiful area of West Cornwall. Getting to and from Penzance and the neighbouring villages is easily done via the A30 and A38. The railway, which reaches London, North Scotland and West Wales, makes it's final stop at Penzance. Just across the road from our historic apartment building is the gateway to the Isles of Scilly. Tucked away, some twenty-eight miles from the coast, the breathtakingly beautiful Isles of Scilly are waiting to be discovered. With long white sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, picturesque little harbours and gorgeous stone-built houses, they are one of the UK’s best kept secrets.

West Cornwall has exhilarating walking and cycling routes along moorland trails and coastal footpaths around the Lands-End peninsula and it is a paradise for bird watchers and plant lovers alike. Gardens, both formal and informal, provide a blaze of colour from early Spring through to late Autumn with numerous sub-tropical flowers and palm trees adding to the unique nature of the local environment. The local surfing venues in Sennen Cove and Gwenver are some of the best in Europe, or for those who prefer a leisurely swim make sure you take a visit to Penzance's magical art-deco Jubilee swimming pool, one of the few remaining 1930's lido's located just a stone's throw from the apartments.
