Little Haven

£408 - £886 per week

Hidden away in a private lane 200 metres from the beach, Little Haven really is the perfect name for this peaceful holiday haven. This comfortable little annexe is ideally situated to enjoy beautiful West Cornwall. You can stroll to the historic town of Marazion, and with two bus stops within walking distance you can even leave your car behind! The owners have furnished Little Haven to ensure your stay is both welcoming and memorable for all the right reasons.

Wake up and enjoy an early morning cup of coffee on the enclosed patio and catch glimpses of the sun rising over St Michaels Mount. A short drive away you have the beaches and coves of Perranuthnoe and Praa Sands. Slightly further along this coast brings you to Porthleven, with its famous fish restaurants and bistro cafes. Little Haven really is a perfect base to enjoy this beautiful part of Cornwall.

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.

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!
