Self catering cottage holidays in Marazion Cornwall

Marazion Cottages

Those who choose to stay in one of our luxury holiday homes in Marazion will not be disappointed. Overlooking St Michael’s Mount, this small village offers the best in food and fun.

St Michael’s Mount is a small island, only accessible on foot via the causeway when the tide is out. The mount, is of course, famed for its castle but there are also gardens, the village harbour, the barge house and so much to discover, including what island life is like for those that live there and the history of the island.

For anyone who enjoys a meal out, check out Ben’s Cornish Kitchen, which serves up freshly cooked meals made with locally sourced ingredients; or for dinner with the best view in town (of St Michael’s Mount), why not pay a visit to The Godolphin Arms? Their crab mac’n’cheese is a must but they also serve up classic fish and chips, if you want to go traditional.

If you prefer to cook at home in your self-catering cottage, why not pay a trip to Trevelyan Farm Shop which will provide all the best local ingredients to cook up a storm in the kitchen. Rustle up a delicious meal with their plentiful fresh fruit and vegetables.

Your Marazion cottage is also a great base to explore the nearby beach from too. Marazion beach is sandy with a few pebble patches and the most magnificent view to St Michael’s Mount. Why not try stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or kite-surfing with Ocean-High? Other beaches nearby include Long Rock Beach and Perranuthnoe Beach. Perranuthnoe Beach is a sandy beach with some shingle and is popular with surfers.

For guests looking to venture a little further afield St Ives is only a twenty minute drive north. With pretty cobbled streets, independent shops, cafes, galleries and the Tate St Ives, there is plenty to keep you busy here. It’s harbour is known to have regular visits from the local seals, which is always nice to see.  To the east of Marazion, the Lizard Peninsula has many attractions including Flambards Victorian Village, The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Roskilly’s Ice-cream Farm and much more.

This most Cornish of villages will have you returning to your Marazion holiday home year after year for fun with all the family.
