Mount Whistle

£556 - £1292 per week

Imagine waking up to a breath-taking view! With the sun rising over the sea, you can watch the fishing boats returning to Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole harbours with their early morning catch, all from the comfort of your bed. Having recently been tastefully, renovated, this two-bedroom property is the perfect holiday home for up to four guests, with a four-legged friend. You can look at the sea while you're preparing dinner in the kitchen as well as when you're sat in the dining room. There is private parking at the rear of the house, with steps leading down to the back door. Mount Whistle is within easy reach of many beautiful beaches, quaint fishing villages, and local attractions; a trip to St Michaels Mount should be top on the list!

Mount Whistle's elevated position is rewarded with an unobstructed sweeping view of Mounts Bay; on a fine clear day you can see the Lizard right across to Gwennap Head. In the middle of the bay, stands the iconic St Michael's Mount, with its medieval church and castle. There are always boats to be seen bobbing in the bay and, if you're lucky, you may see a pod of dolphins leaping playfully out of the water. A stroll down the hill takes you into Marazion town, one of the oldest chartered towns in the UK, where you can browse the shops and art galleries and perhaps have a bite to eat in one of the many pubs and cafes. A famous Philps pasty is a must have and can be enjoyed sat on the golden sands of Marazion beach, whilst watching the boats to and fro from the castle. After washing off the day's sand in the outside wet room there is nothing better than sitting on the decking with dinner sizzling on the barbeque and enjoying a glass of something cool and crisp. The sunsets can be incredible, the sky lights up with hues of pink, orange and yellow, the perfect backdrop to the silhouette of the Mount.

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!

Lovely, well-appointed property in a fabulous location and with stunning views over Mounts Bay. I’d definitely recommend a stay here, we had a fantastic week and loved the short stroll into the town where there is no shortage of great pubs and restaurants.

Comfortable stay with parking. Fabulous view. Very steep stairs at back of property to be aware of but otherwise great location.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location, would highly recommend this for an enjoyable holiday.

We had an amazing week at Mount Whistle! The views from the house are beautiful. The house itself was a perfect size for our family of four and little dog. The rooms are clean, decorated really nicely and all rooms well equipped. We came late March and luckily had some nice weather so having my morning coffee out in little garden area over looking St Michaels Mount was perfect. The location is great, a short walk down into Marazion and also a lovely pub just up the road. And Marizion is the perfect location to explore a lot of Cornwall. We did not want to leave, and I’m already looking at booking again for next year, if not sooner!
