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!

Mrs Napper Oct 2019
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.
Miss Royce Oct 2019
Very comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Cosy living conditions.
An excellent location with dog-friendly beach.
Mrs Sadler Aug 2019
Excellent location, cosy and comfortable cottage with secure garage parking nearby.
Mr Marshall Jul 2019
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.
Mrs Boyd Jun 2019
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!
Mrs Smart May 2019
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!
Mrs Greengrass May 2019
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
Mrs Blackborow Nov 2018
Lovely cottage in excellent position, wonderful with the doggie beach virtually on the doorstep! Quiet and pleasant position but still in town.
Mrs Bastow Oct 2018
Overall good value for money . It did 'what it said on the tin'.
Mr Clover May 2018
Gem of a pet friendly cottage in a great location!
Mr Cain Jan 2018
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.
Miss Ram Oct 2017
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.
Mrs Alexander Jun 2017
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??
Mr Wilsher Jun 2017
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.
Mrs Altoft Aug 2016
Very well equipped with even the little things thought about. Thank you.
Miss Ashdown Apr 2016
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.
Mrs Hunt Feb 2016
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.
Ms Cooper Dec 2015
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.
Ms Reed Jul 2015
A delightful property in a great location, with a real feeling for the history of the town.
Mr Wilkinson Jul 2015
Beautiful cottage finished to high quality standard. Good value for money especially with a king size and double size bed options.
Ms Buck Jul 2015
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.
Ms Tenbrink Jul 2015

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!
Mrs Bassett-Myers Jun 2015
Comfortable and homely. Wonderful beds!! Very nice location. Very nice quality kitchen equipment which I really appreciated in a rental.
Ms Stringer May 2015
