The inviting waves rhythmically land onto the expansive, soft sand beach, in a moon shaped World Heritage bay, with dramatic cliffs and heather  and the majestic and magical castle standing proud. What better way to soothe away the stresses and strains of everyday life, stirring contrasts of both, zen and peace into body, souls, mind and spirits.

Thank you for your review of Cockleshell. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Because Marazion is an ancient market town, private parking is quite rare and although the car park is a few minutes walk away, being able to drive down to within 80 feet of the front door to unload etc is still very beneficial. We hope you will return again, in the future.
