The rooms are awash with a spectrum of pastel colour reflected from the sea.

Windows capture ever changing seascapes , framing scenes of small boats drifting on water as smooth as glass, fishermen busily emptying lobster pots, surface ripples morphing into dazzling brilliance in the sunlight or winter's wild crashing Atlantic waves. Impassioned by its loveliness, artists painted here.

From the pretty garden you feel you could almost reach over and touch St. Michael’s Mount and paddle your feet in the bay. Nearby the coastal path takes you to deserted sandy coves fringed with wild flowers, where seals loiter in the surf. The ancient town boasts a small harbour where the ferry to St. Michael’s Mount collects its passengers when the causeway is covered by the tide.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall ,as it is so far south and has the Gulf Stream running past its long expanse of coast, has a very mild climate, especially on the coast. Spring comes early & autumn lingers longer.

With its ancient past & stunning natural beauty, it offers a wealth of experiences. St Michael's Mount, is a magical island which has a church, a medievil castle, an exotic garden clinging to the sleep flanks and an ancient harbour with shops & restaurants.

The Minack Theatre is a unique open-air theatre created from the cliff side , its backdrop is spectacular views over Porthcurnow Bay to Logan Rock. The Tate Gallery, St Ives & the Eden Project are worth a visit. Look at "Cornwall Guide" on, for places of interest as the list is endless.


Marazion is a popular destination for beach holidays & water sports, including windsurfing, kite-surfing & sailing. The attractive old town claims to be one of the oldest in Britain - known as Ictis by the Romans. Mounts Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The clean, sandy beaches offer safe bathing.

There are wonderful views towards the Lizard Peninsular in one direction & Land End in the other. It is famous because of St Michael's Mount- a causeway, once walked by pilgrims, leads to the island at low tide. A short distance along the coast is the pretty village of Perranuthnoe, which boasts the oldest inn in Cornwall - a good spot for surfing! Next along the coast is Prussia Cove, the lair of the notorious wreckers & pirates, the Carter brothers.

A perfect location for walkers and guests with dogs. Artists Cottage is a stones throw from the Coastal Path and unrestricted dog walking beaches.

We found this cottage very clean and everything you wanted was provided....yummy scones from local shop and bottle of wine waiting for our arrival. The location is great to explore most of south cornwall. Some fab beaches for the dogs. The most beautiful is Porth Kidney near St Ives. Just a couple of things to mention: The cottage is advertised to sleep 6. Afraid 6 would be a tight squeeze. Probably 4 would be max. Also the ad also states 300 metres from the beach.....this is true, as the crow flies, but you have to walk a lot further to access the beach. We would advise anyone going to check with the owner where the car parking space is. As we tried to get the car next to the cottage (nearly impossible)! The views are amazing but as I say a couple of minor problems.

The cottage has an unusual and quirky layout but there is adequate space for six, including children. There is also a garden with the most amazing sea views so ample space inside and out. The rooms are fairly small but its a typical traditional cornish cottage. The coastal path and access to the beach in front of the cottage is under 300 metres from the cottage. We are surrounded by beaches, most are within comfortable walking distance but more than 300 metres away. Perhaps you didn't find the beach infront of the cottage, which is dog friendly all year around, for which I apologise and in future will leave instructions for our guests. There is designated parking in the private car park opposite the cottage. Photo's and parking instructions are included in the information sent to our visitors and so far no one has had a problem finding it. I am sorry you had difficulty. I will leave contact details of a neighbour, who will be more than happy to give directions, at the cottage for anyone experiencing the same confusion.

"Absolutely excellent"

We had a really enjoyable stay in the cottage blessed by a week of glorious sunshine. The welcome gifts were greatly appreciated and the location was spectacular with excellent views of the mount. The pub two doors down does excellent food and was very welcoming.

"Little gem with great atmospheric views of St. Michael's Mount"

We booked to stay for a week in October in 2010. We loved Marazion and we felt very at home in Artist's Cottage, which is well appointed and imaginatively designed. The location is excellent - 5 min walk down the hill into Marazion centre - and overlooking the sea and St. Michael's Mount. We were a party of three (2 adults and a 9 year old) and the place suited us very well indeed. We didn't use the bunk-bedded room at all (ended up storing our fishing gear, walking boots, coats, etc in this ground floor bedroom as it's next to the entrance). Our nine-year old chose to sleep on the mezzanine level over the living area. The cottage is very bijou and compact, which we loved, but others may feel cramped, especially if there are more than three of you. This probably wouldn't matter so much in the summer months. We had a couple of days of really inhospitable weather during our October week, but we were happy sitting in front of the picture window with mugs of hot chocolate over looking St. Michael's Mount. We all loved it and would love to go back. If I could change one thing, it would be to make it a non-smoking property. For non-smokers, the slight smell of cigarette smoke in the cottage took a bit of getting used to, although we didn't notice it by the end of the week (I'd had the windows opened every day though!). A great property in a great location.
