The extensive grounds provide an ideal space for kids to burn off any excess energy. The closest beach is only 3 miles away and the owners provide buckets, spades and crab lines for the children to use during your stay. However, if you fancy spending the day(s) at the property the kids will be fully entertained with the toys and equipment provided on site, they can even help the owners collect eggs and feed the pigs. On arrival a gorgeous Cornish cream tea will be waiting for you, whatever you decide to do during your stay, The Hayloft will be a joy to return too.

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!


Fantastic property with all the amenities needed for a family. Not many properties we have stayed at truly cater for babies and young children. The Hayloft more than lived up to its claims...with everything we needed for our 1 year old, to an amazing outdoor space with play equipment and a summer house full of toys for our 4 year old...there simply weren’t enough hours in the day! The Hayloft is in its own micro-climate, away from the hustle and bustle when needed, but close to all the tourist areas and beaches of southern Cornwall. From the warm welcome by the owners (and the waiting Cornish cream tea), to the luxury of the accommodation, there is nothing more we could have asked for. - 10th August 2018
Great modern and stylish ‘hayloft-style’ apartment with stunning views over the countryside and skylights for plenty of natural light. The apartment has everything you need, including tea, coffee and milk to get you going until you have time to visit a supermarket. Great for little ones - very safe with a travel cot, booster seat, toys and ride-ons in the garden. Location is a great base for day trips to various attractions - in four days we visited the Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Penzance, the lighthouse at Lizard Point and Kynance Cove (‘Poldark’s beach’), Helston and the steam railway, Poldark’s Mine, Godolphin House (walkable), Penrose and Porthleven. Nice little touches include flowers on the table, freshly baked scones and wine on arrival, which were gratefully consumed after a long journey. Kate was very prompt and friendly in her communications and lives in the house next door so is on-hand should you need anything. Thanks for a super stay. - 8th June 2018
One of the very best we have ever stayed in.Mrs J Freestone - 12th June 2017
Myself, husband and two year old boy stayed here. The accommodation itself was ideal. Clean, modern and very well equipped. Plus it provides all the basic essentials such as hand soap etc.so it means you can relax from the moment you arrive. The outdoor space was beautiful and also provided lots of safe playing space for our little boy to run around and burn off energy. Kevin and Kate were friendly with suggestions of things to do and how to maximise our time during our visit. I can't recommend this accommodation enough.Sarah R - 14th October 2016
We have just come home from one of our most memorable holidays. The hayloft is the perfect home from home, equipped with everything needed for a relaxing family holiday. The hayloft was very spacious, modern and beautifully clean. The owners Kevin and Kate went out of their way to ensure we made the most of our week's stay, and even took our little girl over to the chickens' coop to search for eggs! We thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the peaceful surroundings of the Hayloft; watching the rabbits and pheasants playing in the vast garden below. It is situated in the perfect location for exploring southern Cornwall, we were blown away by the stunning beaches such as Kynance Cove and Sennen Cove, and had wonderful days out visiting the breath-taking Minack Theatre, St Michael's Mount, and of course Roskillys ice cream farm. There is just so much to do down there and we will definitely be returning.Rachael P - 3rd September 2016
The Hayloft is a perfect base to explore Western Cornwall. We found the apartment had everything that we needed and more. We were travelling with 2 small children and the accommodation was perfect for them too. Kate and Kevin were very welcoming and helpful. Our daughter enjoyed helping feed the animals. We look forward to staying again.David B - 26th August 2016
