Reviews

We visited the quaint ‘Blythswood’ cottage in Marazion, during September 2020 To get away from the city with my family, post lockdown was just the tonic we all needed! The property was airy, spacious, immaculately clean, with fitting seaside artwork. It was very close to local shops, beach and eateries; it was a great place too for exploring other nearby areas. The weather was very kind to us too! A well stocked fridge & cupboard with treats was much welcomed Thanks a million to Sally & Chris - we had a lovely memorable holiday. We’ll be back! ❤️

Mrs Jackie C,

We stayed at Blythswood for five days. It was our first holiday-let and during these strange times, thought it the safest way of having a staycation. On arriving at Blythswood, we were delighted with the accommodation. It is immaculate throughout, bright and airy. The décor and furnishings are a delight. We had a choice of bedrooms and decided upon the “back” bedroom overlooking the well-kept and sunny garden. The linked bed is incredibly comfortable, the sheets are wonderful to sleep on (sateen cotton) and the bathroom is large having a very welcome bath and fabulous heated towel rail with lots of large fluffy white towels. The cleanliness throughout the property was very reassuring with plenty of disinfectant and anti-bacterial wipes readily available. The kitchen is well equipped with every useful gadget and appliance that you could want. Marazion itself is very pretty with a great view and in close proximity to St Michaels Mount. There are a host of excellent value pubs and restaurants (recommended to book in advance), as well as quaint independent shops, galleries and a very moreish pasty shop! It is well situated and is close to other key attractions such as St Ives, Porthleven, historical homes and gardens. Our time at Blythswood and in Marazion was very peaceful, calming and tranquil. It is a highly recommended “staycation” with excellent accommodation.

Mrs Sue L,

Blythswood was just what we needed. Our Anniversary celebrations were to have been by the sea, in the Seychelles. We wanted somewhere special, by the sea and found it in Marizion. Sally and Chris have thought of everything and will help with recommendations and things to do. Another point is that without doubt their local knowledge is of huge benefit eg restaurants, the need to book...we wouldn’t have got in most places, opening times, places of interest... that needs emphasising too. On our one rainy day we enjoyed the warmth of the of the house to snuggle down. Most evenings we walked 2 minutes to the platform in front of the Mount to watch the sun go down. Relaxed, chilled, perfect thank you.

Mr Nick Y,

The time has come to leave beautiful Marazion where we have spent a wonderful week at Blythswood cottage! Gorgeous three bedroom house with lovely garden and terrace - just perfect for a morning coffee or evening drink in the sun! The house was spotless and it had everything we needed! Stunning scenery on your doorstep and we had beautiful sunshine for the whole week! Do we really have to leave?!

Previous G,

We really enjoyed our stay at Blythswood, three weeks sped by. It’s a lovely Cornish cottage, extremely well-equipped, absolutely everything you need for a long stay; a sunny back garden and the added bonus of an outside toilet and somewhere for wetsuits. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into everything. Our family were delighted to stay there. It’s very home from home. Thank you very much both to you and the owners.

Previous G,

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!
