Old Eastcliffe House Marazion

£1369 - £3389 per week

This outstanding example of a mid-19th Century, Grade II listed property has been lovingly restored to its former glory by the current owners. Old Eastcliffe House offers large families or groups of friends the opportunity to enjoy both the grandeur of such a historic building and the modern comforts of this superb home with its unbeatable views of the iconic St Michael's Mount from almost every window. The spacious rooms with their incredible height still have the original cornicing and ceiling roses and this, along with a traditional 32 paned sash window on the wide sweeping staircase could almost lead you to believe you've stepped into a Daphne du Maurier novel or perhaps even Poldark. But with eyes cast down, you are suddenly transported back to our own time with all the modern home comforts you could need, including a fabulously well equipped kitchen and underfloor heating. Even the younger members of the family can enjoy some gaming time on the PS4, or in good weather, let off steam in the generous gardens, which are carefully tended by your own private gardener once a week.

September 2020

A wonderful stay at Old Eastcliffe House a stunningly beautiful property with amazing views. We were a party of five adults, one toddler and one dog and loved the spacious feel of the house. The kitchen was very well equipped and came straight out of a homes magazine, all the bath/shower rooms had modern fittings which were spotlessly clean, the beds and sofas were extremely comfortable and we loved the beautiful artwork throughout the house. The gardens are of a good size, plenty of space for an energetic toddler and not so energetic labrador and of course the views are everything you could hope for on a holiday in Cornwall. We cannot recommend Old Eastcliffe House highly enough, a memorable stay for all of the family - thank you.

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. 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!

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.

Old Eastcliffe House is lovely, The views are amazing, the house is comfortable and works well for a big party. Great kitchen, loads of space, light and airy, what more can I say! In my daughter's words, "we had a blast". Plenty to do in and around Marazion, even with tedious Covid restrictions. One thing, bear in mind that the entrance gateway to the property is a bit narrow, care needed there. But I can certainly recommend this house for a great family holiday.
