The West Country region
The West Cornwall area is a premier holiday destination and offers something for everyone. Take your time to relax and bask in the sunshine, enjoying many of the golden beaches that adorn the West Cornwall coastline or take a relaxing walk through the lush moorland or a more energetic hike through the clifftops which will give you access to amazing scenery and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the Ocean.
Picturesque villages dot this area and there is always something happening in the summer months that range from local festivals to outdoor activities. There is an abundance of culture, heritage and spirit in this area. Sample the wonderful Cornish cuisine in one of the many traditional pubs or watch the sun set whilst enjoying cream tea and cakes in one of the many cafes. This area is also a must for shoppers with its mix of big name retail outlets and smaller eclectic shops.
Whether you are looking for an action packed holiday or somewhere to get away from it all, West Cornwall is an ideal destination for any type of holidaymaker.
Marazion lies on the coast of Mount's Bay and is an ideal destination for any holidaymaker. The golden sandy beaches are perfect for families and the ocean is clear and warm. The town itself is thriving and offers a good array of local shops, pubs and restaurants.
This location is a great base for touring and exploring the whole of west Cornwall, and is perfect for cycling or walking holidays (the cottage is right next to the South West Coast Path) and the local scenery is stunning.
Just offshore is St.Michael's Mount, the world-famous tidal island topped by a medieval church and castle. Walk to the island along a cobbled causeway or catch a ferryboat when the tide is in. St. Michael's Mount is the most popular National Trust attraction in the whole south-west and among the top 10 NT attractions in Great Britain.
Penzance is the tourist, business and shopping centre for the far west of Cornwall, the Lands End peninsula. The town has a combination of major supermarkets, national chain outlets and a wide range of smaller independent shops, well worth a look. It has the art-deco Jubilee Pool, a fabulous 1930s open-air lido, the Exchange art gallery, the Cornish Pirates home base.
Penzance is the transport hub for the area - it has direct rail links to London Paddington and other major British cities: the harbour has the ferry link to the Isles of Scilly: and it's on the A30 trunk road linking Cornwall to the rest of the UK, as well as being the centre for the bus network running to most towns and villages in the area.
St Ives holds a very special place in the heart of anyone who has ever visited this small Cornish fishing village. Wide beaches of golden sand washed by the a turquoise sea gives this western tip of the United Kingdom a uniquely Mediterranean feel.
Recently voted 'The Best Seaside Resort in the UK' by the US British Heritage Magazine, and a member of the exclusive most 'Beautiful Bays in the World Club', St Ives is a destination that will appeal to all ages and tastes.
For those who enjoy a beach-based holiday, the town's four main beaches have won numerous awards for cleanliness, professional lifeguard cover, superb café-restaurants and general facilities while Porthmeor beach, in particular, is one of Europe's major surfing venues.
For those who prefer to explore, a stroll around the streets and quaint cobbled alleyways of the old town will reveal fisherman's cottages decked with flower baskets and window boxes brimming with fuschias and geraniums - St Ives has won its category in the 'Britain in Bloom' competition for three consecutive years. Art galleries and studios exhibit paintings and sculptures by local artists who choose St Ives, with its unique and intense daylight, as a very special place to work. For the modern art lover there is, of course, the Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Studio and Museum and the Bernard Leach Pottery as well as the internationally-known September Festival of arts and music.

"Fab cottage and location"
We booked this cottage for a week in July. It is a five minute gentle stroll into the village of Marazion, but down a quiet lane with parking for one car. The cottage is well equipped and very clean… More

Even before we arrived our hosts were very helpful. They even offered to swap to a time later in the year because of the appalling weather forecast. In the end the weather wasn't that bad, we got… More

"Lovely place to stay"
Quite conveniently located - at the end of East Cliff Lane (cul-de-sac) with its own parking slot by the lane. Generally well furnished with everything that you could want for a holiday let (although… More
Thank you for your review and for your compliments, very much appreciated. If we could clarify a couple of points.
We have never ever had leather sofas, always large fabric-covered sofas with detachable fibre-filled back and seat cushions that can be plumped up to make more comfortable if needed. We can only assume that you have confused our cottage with another one!
Our cottages are 400 yards from the centre of town so, while you can take 10 minutes to gently wander along there, at a normal walking pace it should take no more than 4 or 5 minutes.
Also, the walk into and back from town is on level ground, with a slight incline for about 100 yards when approaching the cottage. It can't seriously be called a hill, so uphill and downhill don't really apply in this instance.
The possible implication that the cottage is best suited for a couple we feel could be misleading. We have had plenty of families staying who have remarked that it is spacious and and well laid out (see other reviews), as has sometimes not been their experience in other cottages. That said, we do get a good number of bookings by couples like yourselves, who very much appreciate the extra space that a cottage designed for four offers.
So, thanks again for the overall positivity of your review and, as you have kindly re-booked, we look forward to welcoming you back later this year!

"Good but basic"
Stayed for a week with husband and friends Was our friends first time at cottage type holidaysSorry to say that this did not live up to the standards of others that we had stayed in previous years for… More
A number of the review comments were most helpful and, as a result, we have now added serving dishes and plates to the range of crockery, as well as magazines and games. The handbook lists a selection of DVDs that are available to guests (without charge). Garden chairs are now provided for the terrace in addition to the picnic bench.
However, we have to strongly refute the claim that the double bedroom is damp and musty, which it is not. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware that bedrooms in older cottages generally need to be aired daily, to prevent any build-up of condensation. If the double bedroom window and door are kept closed for a whole week, as has happened here on a couple of occasions, by the end of that week the bedroom may well seem damp and musty, but that is due to condensation caused by lack of ventilation. If bedrooms are aired every day, there should be no problem. We have now included this advice in our cottage information handbook and also mention it to guests on arrival so that, hopefully, the situation won't arise again.
We want our guests to get maximum enjoyment from their holidays and so we do our utmost to ensure that everything in the cottage is just right for them. We always mention to guests on arrival that, if they have any concerns or need anything, all they have to do is ask (we live close by). Our cottage handbook offers the same advice. We also check with guests, usually on the first or second day of their stay, to find out whether everything is to their satisfaction, and we did so in this instance. However, if guests don't let us know their concerns until after they have returned home, then there's not a lot that we can do. Had these guests let us know, we would have happily done something about it at the time and presumably they would have had a more enjoyable stay.
