With bright, white interiors accentuated by splashes of seaside colour, this delightful cottage is ideally located for friends or family to explore southern Cornwall. It comes complete with a warming wood burner in the living room and features a private garden perfect for soaking up the sun or al fresco dining.

Step inside and instantly feel at home in the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Prepare a delicious dinner to savour together, then set the ambience by lighting the wood burner and settling down to enjoy a movie on the Smart TV. After each adventure-filled day, retreat to the first floor, where you’ll find a choice of bedrooms: a comforting double, a cosy single, or a versatile twin room with zip-and-link beds that can be arranged as a super-king-size on request. The gleaming family bathroom completes the internal layout. Outside, enjoy the lovely private garden. Let the children run and play on the well-manicured lawn while you relax and dine on the patio. There’s also an outdoor WC and handy storage sheds for stowing away wet suits, surfboards, and bicycles.

The house is ideally situated for leisurely strolls to Marazion’s delightful shops and inviting eateries. You’ll also have easy access to the sandy beach, less than 100 metres away, where endless hours can be spent swimming and enjoying fun-filled games. Don’t miss the chance to embark on a memorable walk to St. Michael’s Mount (500 metres), an iconic landmark steeped in history as both a priory and a fortress, accessible on foot at low tide. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery of this idyllic corner of Cornwall by embarking on a journey along a section of the South West Coast Path. Whether you choose to explore in one direction or the other, you’ll be treated to awe-inspiring vistas and dramatic seascapes.
