Marazion Cornwall

Settling into the coastline of Mounts Bay in West Cornwall, this is a town that offers you a little bit of everything. Water sports fans will relish the mostly calm conditions of the bay where you can SUP and kayak to your heart’s content. Sailors and kiteboarders can get their kicks when the wind is up, and with several equipment hire companies operating in the area, you can take to the water whenever you feel like it.

There are several good walks around the town too, the closest and most accessible though is the virtually flat circular route that starts on Marazion’s seafront and travels along the beach, through dunes, on pavements, along lanes and down footpaths. Most of this walk is excellent for families who have younger children in tow, especially parents with pushchairs.

Marazion cottages with a sea view

With constant views of Michael’s Mount on display in Marazion, what could be better than booking a holiday home in the town that showcases not only those bay blues and greens but also the iconic mount itself? A break at Trevara, Little Trevara, Nutshell or Cormorant Views will do just that, offering spectacular vantage points over the water so you can unwind in the privacy of your own space while taking in some one of the best panoramas in Cornwall. Alternatively our Rosevean, Eastleigh and Britannia cottages, though slightly further back, also have good views of the mount so you’ll be able to dine alfresco or fling back the curtains in your bedroom and take in that gorgeous setting.

Getting out in Marazion

Of course, your time in Marazion wouldn’t be complete without a visit to that iconic tidal island that dominates the bay. Topped by its medieval castle, you can choose to either walk the ancient causeway when the tide is low or catch one of the small passenger ferries from the harbour. Meander through the gardens or simply sit back and soak up the views.

Back in the town, Marazion bustles with a good selection of restaurants, cafes, galleries and gift shops. Treat yourself to lunch at The Godolphin Arms, or a tasty bite at The Copper Spoon. If your dinner plans include a homecooked meal, grab a few pasties from one of the locals’ favourites, Phips Pasties on the way home and pack a picnic for the next day.
