Beautifully traditional Cornish cottage with countryside views
Escape to the country and still only be a short drive to the nearby artist town of St Ives or Marazion with a relaxing stay at Jassamine Cottage. Countryside views surround the cottage allowing peace and tranquillity to be enjoyed and easy access is given to stunning scenic walks. The traditional interior has been tastefully decorated to provide a welcoming and warming stay. The cottage also offers a selection of extra treats such as the cosy summerhouse, children’s den and magical gardens with fire pit area.
The cottage is situated 1.7 miles north of Marazion so fantastically positioned to visit the majestical St Michael’s Mount, seaside town of St Ives or famous Minack Theatre. The traditional country pub The White Hart at Ludgvan is only ¼ miles away serving locally sourced food and hosts summer evening barbeques.
Inside you are spoilt for choice as you first enter the bright and spacious sunroom with large dining table and seating area. You’ll receive a warm welcome from the roaring wood burner as you enter the cosy sitting room. The country style kitchen offers all the mod cons with a Range master electric double oven and dishwasher.
Jassamine has four delightfully comfy bedrooms, one of which is downstairs and two bathrooms.
The cottage offers spacious accommodation for larger groups or can equally be enjoyed as a romantic retreat.

Jassamine Cottage is wonderfully located to enjoy numerous walks through woodland, moorland and open fields down to the sea.
For a simple stroll, the woodland and fields just below the cottage can be accessed on footpaths just 300m from the cottage. The fields across from the cottage are a mass of agapanthas in summer and are simply stunning in their blue and white splendour. A simple walk through the woods to Ludgvan Church and back through the fields takes about half an hour.
A lovely longer walk through fields and marshland Nature Reserve brings you down to Marazion and its glorious stretch of golden sand with St Michael’s Mount gracing the skyline. Depending on your pace, this takes about an hour from the cottage to the sea.
For a stunning view of Mounts Bay, a good walk up the hill unfolds into beautiful moorland with a number of paths to choose. Again, about an hour’s walk to reach the top of the moorland hill.
A 10-minute walk along the woodland lane below the cottage brings you onto the ancient pilgrim’s route, St Michaels’ Way that crosses West Cornwall from coast to coast (12.5 miles) from Lelant to St Michael’s Mount. This path is a wonderful exploration of the countryside and coast and many shorter loop walks can be taken to bring you back to the cottage.
The choice of walking is so varied and guests will find an ordinance survey map at Jassamine Cottage to help plan their routes and enjoy their exploration.
St Ives offers superb sandy beaches, ideal for swimming and surfing, while for those wishing to explore further afield, there is a coastal path in both directions and many beautiful coves, headlands and landmarks (Cape Cornwall, Lands End, Sennen Cove, St Michael’s Mount) within easy driving distance.
