Local Area

Marazion is home to the iconic castle of St Michael's Mount and, offering stunning views towards the Lizard Peninsula and Land's End, it's understandably a popular destination. The ancient market town has a fascinating history and claims to be the oldest town in Britain. It's a great place to visit any time of the year with an abundance of restaurants, traditional pubs, craft shops, art galleries and so much more! There's an excellent sandy beach, guarded by St Michael's Mount, that's ideal for swimming, sailing, kite surfing and all kinds of watersports. The surrounding countryside is dotted with little hamlets and quaint villages with the whole area designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) - a great location for bird watching and dolphin spotting.

Godolphin Cross, a little hamlet only 6 miles from Marazion, lies nestled at the base of Godolphin Hill within the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. From the summit of Godolphin Hill there are spectacular panoramic views over West Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula. The nearby fishing village of Porthleven and the town of Helston are a short drive away as well as the well-known attractions of Flambards, Paradise Park and Gweek Seal Sanctuary which make excellent days out for all age groups. The Lizard Peninsula encompasses numerous picturesque coves and sandy beaches for you to enjoy including Praa Sands, Mullion and Coverack. It's an area which remains unspoilt and is definitely a real Cornish gem!


Ideal location!L Howell - 17th September 2018
Maytree is a charming cottage in a quiet location. The accommodation was clean, well equipped and welcoming. The treats left out for our arrival were a very nice touch and were much appreciated after our long journey. Mrs Saman Martin - 22nd August 2018
A lovely cottage with easy access to Penzance and the local area. Loads to keep the family entertained for a week all within an hours drive. Would recommend to anyone who likes great scenery, plenty of variety and great local hospitality.Mr Chris Brewer - 14th August 2018
The property was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there very much.Mrs Carys Weale - 17th July 2018
Delightful cottage. Well-equipped, warm and cosy. Met all our needs. Couldn't have found a better property. Mrs Josephine Bird - 11th June 2018
We are just back from a last minute Easter break at Maytree Cottage. The Cottage is set on a very quiet lane and backs onto a small field. It seems that much of it has been newly decorated and most kitchen items and furniture are new. The double bed is firm. There is a private, sunny garden with a good table and chairs that is enclosed by a low field hedge. The garden was ideal for my elderly Labrador but if you have lively dogs, care would need to be taken that they couldn't get over the hedge.Julia and Louis, Tavistock, Devon - April 2017
We stayed here in October half term with our 5 and 2 year olds. The cottage is tucked away down a tiny lane, so very little traffic (except the tractor belong to the farm down the lane ...), very peaceful and yet so close to lots of great attractions. In 10 minutes you can be at Penzance, St. Michael''s Mount, Marazion or any number of lovely beaches. The cottages was very warm and cosy and has been fully equipped with families in mind. Due to the age (and behaviour) of our kids we don't eat out with them much in the evenings, but the cottage had every possibly cooking implement/dish/pot to make what we needed. The kids adored the quirks of this ancient cottage and played lots of hide and seek games! Also loved a walk down the path to look at horses and chickens - despite the mud that had been deposited through the night from Storm Brian! A lovely, snug, iniviting cottage which felt like we were in our own home (only with much better views).Jaine Fleetwood and family, October 2017
The Cottage is lovely and warm and we enjoyed using the wood-burner. The sofa and chair are very comfortable and there is a large TV with games. Lots of thought has been put into making Maytree Cottage a cosy and welcoming holiday let and we would recommend it highly. The area is quiet but only a few miles away from the village of Marazion with access to the beach there, and of course, St. Michael's Mount.Julia and Louis, Tavistock, Devon - April 2017
