The Silver House
About the home
The Silver House is the ideal base for a relaxing holiday in one of the most unspoilt corners of England at any time of year. You can stroll down to the nearby beaches, browse the galleries and gift shops of Marazion, or explore nearby St Ives, Penzance, Mousehole and everything the wonderful Land's End peninsula has to offer. Or you can simply stay at home, snuggle up with a book and enjoy the wonderful sea view.
The cottage has been planned to make your holiday as comfortable as possible; it is spacious but feels cosy, and has a touch of contemporary style. It is well-equipped, with luxurious touches, such as Egyptian white cotton bed linen and fluffy white towels, as well as wifi broadband. The Silver House has its own private parking space located 300m away.

Further details indoors:
The Silver House has been decorated with simple, contemporary colours and an eye for small details. The floor is laid with warm seagrass throughout. Downstairs, there is a large open-plan living space with dining area at the rear looking into the pretty courtyard, and a sitting area with two comfortable sofas at the front. From the bay window you can enjoy fabulous sea views.
The dining area leads into the compact, well-planned kitchen which has an electric hob and oven, dishwasher, and is very well equipped with utensils.
Outside the back door in the courtyard is a cute little patio with bistro table and chairs where you can soak up the morning sun or even gaze through the house at the sea. The courtyard leads to a utility room with washing machine and drying space.
Upstairs, the bathroom is on the half-landing, and offers the choice of walk-in shower or deep bath to refresh yourself. Luxurious fluffy white cotton towels are provided.
There are two bedrooms at the Silver House. The big one at the front is light and spacious, with unobstructed views across Mount's Bay; at night you can lie there and watch the lights twinkling on St Michael's Mount.
The twin at the back is nice and cosy and super quiet. All beds are supplied with white cotton bedlinen. A travel cot is available on request.
Further details outdoors:
The Silver House has its own private garden situated just over the road, down some steps, on a south-facing terrace tucked away from public view. Here you'll find a picnic table and plenty of opportunity to relax. It is ideal for sunbathing or eating al fresco.
We also have a courtyard patio outside the back door - so you have a choice of two places to sit outside.
Booking at The Silver House is from Friday to Friday. Short breaks are available for most of the year by request and at our discretion – please ask. We are open throughout the year, and this is a great place to visit out of season – the Christmas lights at Mousehole and other nearby villages are spectacular.
We welcome families with children of all ages, but regret that we are unable to accommodate pets. The house is non-smoking throughout.
Please note that if you are booking with us we would kindly advise you to take travel insurance, as we are unable to refund payments for your stay in the event of cancellation.
The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall is the most beautiful and unspoilt county in southern England. It is a county that is surrounded by the sea and it has a proud history of seafaring and mining; today it is extremely popular with visitors and has what is arguably Britain's most pleasant climate, as the gulf stream ensures that temperatures are mild even in winter, and enables sub-tropical plants and trees to flourish.
The Marazion / St Michael's Mount area
With its stone causeway to St Michael's Mount, Marazion is simply unique. One of the smallest towns in Cornwall – it feels more like a village – Marazion has plenty to offer in the way of galleries, gift shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There's always something happening in the bay, with gig (boat) racing, various types of surfing and sailing among the main activities.
And at low tide you can walk out across the causeway to the Mount, and visit the castle, which is managed by the National Trust, and still home to the St Aubyn family. When the tide is in, small boats ferry visitors to and fro. This is one part of Cornwall that has not lost its charm.

We spend a wonderful week in the Silver House. Our two little children aged 3 and 5 fell in love with the place, the friendly people, the beaches and the hot choclate in the various cafes we visited. It was a wonderful magical stay even though it rained six days out of seven. We still went to the beaches in the vicinity every day and our children loved collecting sea shells. The view of St. Michael´s Mount never ceased to amaze as did the constant sound of the sea and seagulls. That the pub across the road served a very good pint was a pleasant extra. We will definitely consider coming again.

We will definitely come back again next time!

We stayed in the Silver House over the Easter week. The cottage was perfect for us as a family of four with children aged 8 and 11. The cottage had everything we needed and the views of The Mount were amazing. Easy access to the village and a great pub over the road!
