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.

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.

June 2018

We have stayed in this cottage twice. We love it. Great location, good parking, pleanty of space - immaculately clean and a tasty Cornish cream team waiting for us when we arrived.

March 2018

Chy Pons is a lovely semi detached Victorian property. It has lots of character and is the perfect base to explore Cornwall. The cottage is well equipped and was more than adequate for our 2 week stay. The scones were a lovely touch on our arrival and very much appreciated after our 8 hour drive.

We were so lucky with the weather and had an amazing 2 weeks and would certainly love to come back again in the future. Thank you to the owners.

August 2017

Wonderful stay at Chy Pons. Perfect base for our young family, with all the homely touches that make a holiday that bit easier! Location ideal for exploring with several beautiful beaches a very short drive away. Off road parking for two cars was a suberb bonus.

August 2017

Lovely quite location tucked away and very private,short walk to great beach and town centre

July 2017

Wonderfully furnished and cosy house. Enough space, great garden and excellent private parking available. The walk up and down the hill is not really steep and was a good daily exercise. The town of Marazion with its Mount St. Michael and its beach, restaurants and shops was even more beautiful than we had expected. Wonderful house, wonderful place. Marazion is only crowded during the day. Otherwise calm and beautiful.

July 2017

Great property for a family with very good outside spaces as well as a modern well thought out interior. Great location for exploring coastal Cornwall and close to a good choice of restaurants and traditional pubs.

October 2016

Lovely cottage in nice location. Had lovely holiday, very restful.

April 2016

We had a lovely first family holiday with our son & we are pleased to have chosen Chy Pons. The house is pretty, spacious & well presented. Although it's at the top of the village we were able to walk into the village & enjoy the beach & mount aswell as exploring further afield. We appreciated the welcome note, flowers & cream tea - thank you!

September 2015

Cottage is ok, the garden is nice, would be safe if you had children. The parking needs to be solely for guests and an update of the utensils is needed. On the whole there are nice furnishings, better downstairs than up.. It is a little damp, and we could not get the dehumidifier to work.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

I know that one of my colleagues has since been in touch with you following your stay. Chy Pons has private parking but unfortunately on the occassion that you were here, a broken down car was parked next to the space, making it more difficult to access than usual. We are very sorry for any inconvenience. You will be pleased to hear that the dehumidifier is now working perfectly and has always prevented any issues with damp, so I am sure that with that up and running again, that will be resolved, though we will keep a close eye on this. I am also happy to report that the owner has arranged for an inventory check to replace any missing utensils. Thank you for bringing these to our attention. Tanya, Customer Services.
