'Pen' is Cornish for Headland, and Pen Vista has wide-reaching sea views across St Michael's Mount and Mounts Bay to Mousehole on the western headland.

Pen Vista is newly renovated to a high standard and offers superb seaside family accommodation for up to four people in a traditional stone cottage with amazing panoramic views of the sea and St Michael’s Mount. The accommodation is dog friendly and has its own allocated parking.

Pen Vista is a traditional granite built Cornish cottage which retains lots of original features and character, whilst boasting a contemporary appeal. From the master bedroom and kitchen there are fabulous panoramic sea views right across Mount's Bay incorporating the magical island castle of St Michael's Mount. The cosy living room has an impressive inglenook fireplace and woodburner which supplements the electric central heating throughout the property. There is a well-equipped kitchen diner and separate utility room. The small south facing rear courtyard has a patio table and four chairs. There is also a useful storeroom for hanging wetsuits or buckets and spades.

Upstairs there are two charming bedrooms. The light and airy master bedroom has a Kingsize bed and its own en suite, and outstanding panoramic sea views. The second bedroom has two single beds which can be zipped together to make a kingsize bed.

Nicola D,


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!
