What a wonderful find. Besides the fantastic location and views, Acacia was very comfortable and had everything that we needed, including decent pots and crockery (a rarity in our experience!). We also very much appreciated the thoughtful touch of milk and scones in the fridge upon our arrival. Definitely returning.

Acacia is a fantastic property. It's got everything you need - amazing sea views, comfortable and feels like a home away from home. The facilities are great, the property is a perfect size, even if for the full 6 people it sleeps. I would 100% stay here again. The location is ideal and Marazion is the most beautiful place!

The team at Aspect are fantastic and make booking a holiday so easy!

St Michael's Mount

St Michael’s Mount sits majestically on an island out at sea and can be reached via a cobbled causeway at low tide or at other times by the 'St Michael' amphibious vehicle! Visit the sub-tropical gardens that surround the castle or step inside the castle walls to explore the myths and legends that surround this iconic landmark. Read more about St Michael's Mount or view our St Michael's Mount webcam.

Marazion Beach

Conveniently located a moment away from the world famous St Michael's Mount, Marazion beach is found in the heart of Mounts Bay, recently elected as one of the 'most beautiful bays in the world'. It’s the perfect beach for family holidays in Marazion, with cafés just above the sand, lifeguards on hand and clean and safe waters. Despite its beauty and convenience for holiday makers, it remains surprisingly quiet compared to other Cornish beaches. It’s perfect for beach and sea sports and you can even take your horse for a quick gallop across the sands! The long sandy beach that stretches towards Long Rock is a popular windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing spot amongst locals and holiday makers alike. Mounts Bay provides ideal conditions for watersports, and kite surfing and stand up paddleboarding lessons are available with Ocean High for those looking to make the most of the outdoors. Find out more things to do at Marazion Beach >

Venture Eastwards and you'll find Marazion Beach East, or Steps Beach. This dog-friendly beach is favoured by locals as it is quiet due to its limited access and rocky shore, but it is perfect for dog walking, and collecting driftwood after a storm. Children will enjoy the many rock pools when the tide is out. Accessible via Leys Lane or from Marazion beach if you don't mind climbing over the rocks!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

We would highly recommend this property it was stylish and comfortable and a real home from home it was lovely. So much so that we are going to book for next year. If you book this property I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. It is rare to book somewhere and it fits the description perfectly.

Fabulous cottage with sea views. We loved staying at this very well equipped cottage, the icing on the cake was the fabulous sea views from the upstairs balcony. We would love to stay here again.

1 month ago

A fantastic cottage with every need covered. Really well located - lovely to wake up to the sight and sound of the sea. Very comfortable with quality furnishings - one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Traffic noise would not suit all but road side location makes it inevitable. Similarly having to park away from the property not everyone's taste but far better than having a pokey hard to negotiate small parking area adjacent to the cottage like some in the village. Would not hesitate to return.

Beautiful location with amazing views of the sea and makes for a great base to explore West Cornwall. House lovely and very clean and comfortable. Don’t let the restricted car parking at the house put you off, it’s only a short walk to the car park and lovely walking through the town. Would definitely stay here again.

1 month ago

Very comfortable and charming property, conveniently situated in Marazion with a lovely view and roof terrace. Note parking is in car parks 10-15 minutes walk away.

Aug 2020

Acacia was very comfortable and spacious with amazing views and a great location in the village. The garden was a lovely sun trap and well enclosed for the dog.

As mentioned by others, it is a bit of a nuisance not to have the car close by especially when it’s raining and the narrow footpath into the village is not good for dogs or young children.

We are sorry to hear that you had found the location of the parking space a bit of a nuisance. Unfortunately there are quite a few properties that do not have this facility and very limited options for public car parks in Marazion, so the property owners had arranged this parking space so that their guests do not have the worry of trying to find somewhere. It is a bit of a walk away, but we hope that it proved to be useful to have an allocated spot for your stay. We are glad that you had otherwise enjoyed Acacia and the lovely village of Marazion, and hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

If you like a sea view, you won't find much better than Acacia. The house is spacious, in good condition, and very well equipped. It is right on the main road through town, but it's a very narrow road and there's little noise. Top tips: use Back Lane to walk into town (much easier than the narrow pavements and great views) and explore Leys Lane for access to Marazion's second (almost deserted) beach.

Sep 2019

Absolutely fantastic property, clean, comfy and spacious. Worth every penny.

May 2019

Lovely cottage with fabulous views. Parking space at cottage too small for my car and parking facility quite a walk with my two young children

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed those amazing views; they are quite something! The space that you mention at the property, is not an advertised facility due to its small size, so the owners provide a parking permit at St Aubyn car park. As with many traditional Cornish towns and villages, the availability of parking can be very limited, so whilst we appreciate that it can be a bit of a walk, we hope that you found the provision of the space a useful facility for the property. Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Acacia is in an excellent location - a short walk to the beautiful beach and St Michael’s Mount. Friendly pubs and easy to get to Minack, Seal Sanctuary, Land’s End, Lizard, Mousehole for trips out. Weather too bad for sitting out on balcony but a stunning feature if warm enough. Would definitely return!

Mar 2018

Loved this house. Could happily live here all year round.

May 2017

This is a warm, convenient cottage which is well furnished with. Lots of space.

Oct 2015

Acacia was just as described, very comfortable cottage didn't lack in anything. Beds very comfy, lovely waking up to sea views also helped by the good weather we had. Marazion is a very good place to explore this part of Cornwall from. The lizard and surrounding area was beautiful, Falmouth and St Ives are great days out. The walks on the beaches with the dog were fantastic. Highly recommended.

Sep 2015

Excellent cottage. Very comfortable. Extremely clean with lovely furnishings. Beautiful outlook from the rear of the cottage.

Jul 2015

This cottage is convenient for Marazion, it is beautifully furnished and decorated, very spacious with a lovely roof terrace above the kitchen with a wonderful view. WiFi and tight parking for one car somewhat of an issue.

We're pleased to see that you enjoyed Acacia and would recommend the property despite the problems you had with the WiFi and parking access. We appreciate how important WiFi is for planning days out and keeping in touch with family and friends when away and we're sorry that there were connection problems. The owner checked with the service provider, and we are pleased to report that there have been no further issues with the wifi since your stay, so hopefully any issue has been resolved. Tanya, Customer Services

We instantly felt at home at Acacia. It's bright and full of quality furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped and the garden lovely and a good size. The views are stunning and together with the added veranda just lovely to sit and watch the sea. It's a short walk to some great restaurants and pubs. Whether you have a dog or not you would not be disappointed with this stunning home.

Apr 2015

The cottage is light and airy with lovely décor throughout and really comfortable. The king sized bed has lovely views of the sea and listening to the waves at night sent us to sleep. The balcony was great with stunning views. Ipod stations in every room and 2 TV's were appreciated. This cottage was very close to the centre of Marazion with the benefit of its own parking space and has everything you could want from a holiday rental and more.
