Mix in a wealth of festivals, enthralling outdoor activities, art, culture and heritage of international significance, unique covered attractions, the warmth of old-fashioned pubs, the delights of Cornish cuisine, and the unbeatable company of the Cornish people.

"This is a fab house in a fab location!"
There was 9 of us in total stayed the first week of the school holidays. The house is great, plenty big enough for us all. The upstairs terrace was a real sun-trap and great for a leisurely cup of coffee in the mornings. The decking area was used every night, as was the great BBQ even when it rained as the terrace covers a lot of the decking so it didn't matter if it rained! All the essemtials you could possibly need were in the kitchen and even a welcome litre of milk!
All in all I would recommend this house to anyone, great location, great accommodation, what more could you need!

"Large peaceful home in great location"
A spacious house close to the village, yet in a quiet location with no through traffic. We had 10 staying of all ages and had plenty of room, the garden and house are safe for children, with fenced decking and garden. Plenty of parking, and a short walk to the beach, ice creams, restaurants and coffee shops. From the upper bedroom you wake up to the view across Mounts Bay, and you can breakfast on the terrace of the hotels in Marazion opposite the Mount after a 10 minute walk. We also had a fine Sunday lunch in Marazion and if you didn't want to drive for a week then everything is close by to just kick back and relax. For the teenagers there is a big TV and dvd player for family evenings, and a cycle track and walks on local foot paths, and the coastal Path. We walked from the open air theatre in Minack to Lands end and scenery was spectacular. All in all a very relaxing time and was enjoyed by all - recommended
