Holidays in Marazion

Marazion is perhaps best known for the famous St Michael's Mount that is perfectly silhouetted on a sunny day, however the town itself is worth a browse with some lovely shops and tea rooms. We recommend visiting in early Spring when the famous Cornish daffs are in full flower!

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.

 

Top tip

Be sure check the tide times when planning your visit to St Michael's Mount!

Marazion beach

Conveniently located a moment away from the world famous St Michael's Mount, Marazion beach is found in the heart of Mount's 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. Mount's 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!

We had a lovely week, the location of the cottage is perfect, parking was brilliant to have and Marazion is such an interesting village. Climb the hill inland to get amazing views. The cottage was welcoming as was the cream tea provided for our arrival. A thoroughly relaxing week.

What a gorgeous gem in a lovely village. Great location and such comfortable beds. Had everything we needed and was a perfect base to explore a beautiful part of Cornwall

Lovely cottage in a lovely location. Very comfortable

Really enjoyed staying at Coachman's Cottage. It is in a great location in a lovely village. The Cottage is well equipped & comfortable with virtually everything you need. Although most of the shops in the village are for tourists, the Post Office sells some foodstuffs and there are some large supermarkets only a short drive towards Penzance (around Long Rock) for everything you may need. Easy access to lots of beautiful places in West Cornwall & beyond. Because Marazion is small, there were some problems getting a local booking for dinner. I suspect Covid was partly to blame. However, a short walk along the coast to The Station House pub solved the problem. We did not need to book and the food was very good and the staff brilliant. Would definitely stay at Coachman's Cottage again.

Nice cosy, all you need. Good base to enjoy the glories of Cornwall from. Roger Clover May 21

A lovely traditional stone property located on a lane leading down to the beach and the causeway. Very clean and tidy with a good array of kitchen equipment and utensils. Comfortable beds and linen. Great location to get out exploring the delights of W Cornwall.

We spent two weeks at the cottage and due to Covid spent a lot more time there than in usual times. We ate in most evenings as the cottage is fully equipped for cooking meals and we also enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard with a bottle of wine.

The cottage is very clean and comfortable and cosy and very quiet. The location is perfect and the benefit of car parking is great as parking is a problem in Marazion as in most small coastal villages in Cornwall.

Great customer service from Aspects.

Lovely location , perfect for all amenities and visits to local hotspots.. house very comfortable..

Cottage perfectly located next to two beaches and close to shops, restaurants and pub. It’s a great central location for exploring the South of Cornwall. Cottage was perfect for our four-legged friend with a small but enclosed garden. There is also a shed full of very useful things such as beach equipment, windbreaker etc which I wish we’d known about! You’ll have a fabulous time!

I will not stay here again. Too small for four adults. Could do with a few maintenance improvements. Would benefit from some TLC.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry that you had experienced maintenance issues while here. The team had been in contact with you at the time of your stay, and reported all the points that you raised, to the property owners who were addressing everything. Unfortunately things like this do crop up from time to time, as they do in our own homes, but we completely appreciate that it is not ideal and we always try to do everything that we can to prevent them, and will always do everything possible to rectify any concerns at the time of your stay. We are sorry to hear that you would not wish to return to this property, and from a size point of view, it didn't quite work for your party, but hopefully we will be able to assist in future with some recommendations. Tanya, Customer Services

JUST BOOK IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Good service, will be booking again

Had a great time at this property. The road it’s on is very tight so be warned but a garage to park in was useful. The cottage was comfortable and perfect for what we needed. There isn’t really a sea view but it only takes you 30 seconds to walk to the beach which was amazing. Spent most mornings and sunrises there with a brew. The cafe at the top of the street also does the best cream scones I have ever tasted so well worth a visit too. Overall I would recommend this place to everyone. Great location, comfortable, value for money and the welcome pack in the cottage was awesome after such a long drive. Thank you for a great stay.

Very comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Cosy living conditions.

Lovely furnishings.

An excellent location with dog-friendly beach.

Thank you.

Vivienne Sadler

Excellent location, cosy and comfortable cottage with secure garage parking nearby.

Coachman's Cottage was a lovely, homely and very comfortable base for our holiday in Marazion. It had everything we needed, and was in a wonderful position... only a few steps from the dog friendly part of the beach. We would definitely stay there again.

Great little cottage, excellent dog friendly beach, excellent restaurants in Marazion but can get very busy so best to book and can be a bit on the pricey side. Very comfortable beds with very clean bedding, bath a bit short for a bath and shower not designed for taller people. But overall a very comfortable and well equipped (kitchen appliances/utensils etc., wifi, BTHub) with quaint little details that make it interesting and homely! Would definitely rebook if in Marazion again!

Coachman's Cottage is delightful. A little gem tucked away in Marazion within strolling distance of the most stunning view - St Michaels Mount! Everything you could possibly need is provided with the added benefit of a garage. The cottage is spotlessly clean and the owners were very helpful & friendly. And the welcome cream tea was superb!

Great tucked away position in Marazion, with a short walk to the King's Arms and the gin bar at the back of the Marazion Hotel! Lovely, cosy, warm and comfortable cottage, with such pretty furniture and interior design in the lounge particularly Excellent, small kitchen kitted out with quality equipment Delicious cream tea Cute garden and little extras for the dog Really comfy beds and plenty of towels Useful garage

Lovely cottage in excellent position, wonderful with the doggie beach virtually on the doorstep! Quiet and pleasant position but still in town.

Overall good value for money . It did 'what it said on the tin'.

Gem of a pet friendly cottage in a great location!

Cosy, beautiful and well-equipped! The perfect place to come back to after a long day of exploring. It felt like home from the very beginning and we were very sad to leave. Right in the heart of Marazion - which has so much to offer - as well as being an easy distance from all the best bits of Cornwall. Could not have asked for more.

The best base you could have in dog friendly Cornwall, Coachmans Cottage is a must, with the added bonus and security of a garage 4minutes away.

Wonderful place and we are already looking for a return date!!!,to wake up hearing the seagulls and the crashing waves in the distance was truly magical,exactly what we wanted....thank you very much??

Had an absolutely fantastic time staying in the coachmans cottage. It had everything we needed including a parking space! In a great location, only a short stroll to the beach and shops. Can't wait to book up again.

Very well equipped with even the little things thought about. Thank you.

It is a pretty and comfortable cottage. Lovely beds, well equipped kitchen and great area for the dog who immediately liked her sleeping space! Would definitely come back to this property.

We spent Christmas at Coachman's Cottage with our twin 7-year olds and it couldn't have been more magical. We hope we get a chance to repeat the experience. The cottage was everything we hoped for and with the beach just a two-minute walk away you couldn't wish for a better location.

This is a gorgeous cottage in a superb location in Marazion. Everything we needed was here, it is completely charming and well appointed for you to enjoy & explore this beautiful county from a very lovely base.

A delightful property in a great location, with a real feeling for the history of the town.

Beautiful cottage finished to high quality standard. Good value for money especially with a king size and double size bed options.

It is indeed a lovely charming Cornish cottage, placed in a very good location in a quieter side street. It is just enough space for 3 persons, but not more as it is quite tiny. Perfect stay to make all tours to various sights in Cornwall.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review. With a double bedroom and a king/twin bedroom, Coachman's Cottage can sleep up to to 4 people. We try to give clear descriptions and show accurate photos so that guests can make an informed choice on which property is right for them and their party size, so are sorry if this one didn't quite meet your expectations on size. We are glad that you enjoyed its charm and location though and hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services.

A really well equipped cottage, and very comfortable with a lovely courtyard garden - could not fault it. A couple of minutes walk to two beaches for our dog to run manically around on plus the Deli cafe on our doorstep. Include the Kings Arms pub, fab sea views from the Godolphin, what's not to like!

Comfortable and homely. Wonderful beds!! Very nice location. Very nice quality kitchen equipment which I really appreciated in a rental.

Lovely cottage, great location for rock pooling on beaches and exploring Marazion. A real home from home.

Lovely Cornish cottage with comfy cosy quality furnishings in a perfect location.
