£1396 - £3457 per week
Book

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.

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!

Things to do in Marazion

Marazion Town Centre

A wander around Marazion itself is a must for those who love exploring shops. Marazion is an ancient market town with a rich history of smuggling, sea commerce and pilgrimage. Nowadays, the town has numerous galleries, gift shops and cafes along the winding streets with plenty of traditional architecture to look at along the way. 

RSPB Nature Reserve - Marazion Marsh

Just a short walk from the town you will find Marazion Marsh, a freshwater habitat, which is home to Cornwall's largest reed bed. This nature reserve is extremely popular with bird watchers all year round and in winter, it's not uncommon to see thousands of starlings flocking here to roost on the marsh. Read more on our blog.

Located in the town hall, this fascinating museum features lots of local artifacts and interesting finds and information on this historic market town. 

Marazion in Bloom

Every summer, the residents of Marazion put on a spectaular floral display from hanging baskets, window boxes and planters. Prizes are awarded for the best displays and locals compete for the award of best presented home and business property. This alone is well worth a visit. 

Walks around Marazion

Located on the South West Coast Path, there are stunning walks across Mounts Bay to Penzance, and to Prussia Cove in the opposite direction. Walking inland, you have 'St Michael's Way'. Thought to be used by pilgrims wanting to avoid the treacherous waters around Land's End, this popular walk runs coast to coast from St Ives to Marazion. This 12 mile walk finishes at Marazion Marsh which can get quite muddy so be sure to bring appropriate footwear! Read more about walking in Marazion on our blog post: Walking in Cornwall: Marazion Walks.

This has been an incredible house to stay in, the house and views are spectacular.

The house is so clean and tidy, with high quality furnishings.

We didn’t want to leave and certainly will be returning.

Waking up to the view of St Michaels Mount was so dreamy, such a dreamy house, book if you want a dreamy holiday!

Great house and fantastic location which would be hard to beat, extremely spacious and well equipped. Cleanliness needs improving in some areas, but overall we had a good holiday here.

Lovely spacious property. Spectacular views and gardens. Second visit this year, this one was whole family which included 3 young children, they were so excited with the space of the rooms and the wonderful gardens particularly their "secret" garden with the swing. Rooms are tastefully decorated but it has a welcoming, homely feel, we were all very comfortable and didn't want to leave.

Our sincere and heart warmed thanks to the owners in allowing us to share your wonderful property and make very magical and special memories with our children and grandchildren, especially after the dreadful times we have faced.

We've just had the most amazing week at Old Eastcliffe House. A group of 10 of us (2 family groups) and a dog stayed there and the house provided us with everything we could have wished for with so much space! Old Eastcliffe House offers so much charm and character. Highlights for us include the amazing views of the sea and mount from almost every window, beautiful decor and furnishings, plenty of bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The proximity to the centre of the village and the beach allowed everyone, especially the 6 teens in our group, to come and go as they pleased safely. Many hours were spent relaxing in the garden watching the sea and the many boats and ships pass by. The house was a fantastic base for us to explore the area which has so much to offer that we'll have to come back!

Beautiful period property, you feel you have walked into Downtown Abbey! Rooms are spacious and well presented, plenty of room for everyone. Gardens are well kept and very pretty, lower garden is the "secret" garden and a lovely hideaway. Front garden has stunning views across to St Michaels Mount.

Wonderful stay, and we are returning again end of August.

Wonderful property with exceptional views and spacious rooms. Catered for our family aged from 1 to 87, we all loved our week there.

Just returned from a family holiday of 7 adults and 2 toddlers. House was beyond expectations so spacious and bedrooms magnificent views of the sea and St Michael’s Mount. Kitchen so well equipped and had everything you could want. Two ovens a definite bonus.

Large gardens and outside seating area ideal for a bbq. Reception rooms so spacious!

5 mins walk into town and beach was really great. Other towns nearby. Tesco delivery helped and local fish delivery so you don’t need to spend time shopping.

Would definitely return best holiday home I’ve ever stayed at.

A wonderful 19th century Mine Captain's house, with great rooms and a very good Cornish garden, with uninteruppted views of St Michaels Mound.

Superb house and location exceeded expectation and what an amazing view! A perfect week away for the whole family, we all loved it and left with many happy memories of our stay in Marazion.

Gorgeous house, gardens & location. Ample parking at the property & the gardens are just delightful with fabulous views. There are lovely walks & the beaches nearby are walkable. St Michaels Mount is well worth a visit either via the causeway or a small boat trip .. we did both. The house was great for our large family & our Labradors & we all had a wonderful holiday.

Absolutely loved it - incredible value for money. The house is massive, beautifully decorated and finished. The view is just amazing, even through the rather rainy weather. Service from Aspects was brilliant - really lovely friendly team and very efficient. Would 100% book again

A great house, plenty of space, good parking, gated property a bonus. Views amazing. Very comfortable, lovely kitchen with all you need and more. Well kept garden and lawns a credit to the gardener. This house is a great stay for any family or a get together with friends.

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.

Spacious rooms, beautiful garden and views. Very well equipped kitchen.Ideal for a large family holiday.

House & all equipment to very high standard. Highly recommended for group, or family holidays. Plenty of Space for quiet moments if required., and large tables for playing group games. We all loved it

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.

Light, spacious and airy house with wonderful views and garden. Centrally situated for exploring the surrounding area. A holiday which has been much enjoyed by all of our family.

If you want somewhere to relax, enjoy the view and take walks on the beach then this is the perfect place. Very easy to feel at home and the house is beautiful. Plenty of space for large numbers. Definitely somewhere we will re-visit.

Fantastic House with amazing views! We had a wonderful week at Old Eastcliffe House. Comfortable Bedrooms,very well equipped kitchen and so much space. Perfect combination of old and new in furnishings and decoration. Views from the House and Garden out to St Micheals Mount and Bay are unbeatable! We can highly recommend the property and hope to return in future!

The house and gardens are beautiful and well equipped. The furnishings have been thoughtfully chosen to complement the character of the house which is equipped perfectly for a party of 12, including children. The gardens and view were really special and well enjoyed by all.

Fantastic location, perfect house, brilliant time! Made lots of memories that will stay with me forever! Will definitely be back soon!!

We had a fantastic family holiday in this most superior house even the young children of the group were amazed by its grandeur. We were lucky to have such good weather and were able to make the most of the garden with the wonderful view of St Michael’s Mount. Happy memories!

A very elegant early 19th century mine owner's house, which is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Plenty of bathrooms. Very nice garden with incomparable views to St Michael's Mount, the whole place is much to be recommended.

Fantastic house and perfect place for our family get together. The location is wonderful and the view from the house and garden is amazing. The house was equipped with all we needed and the beds were 'super comfy' . Thank you for the welcoming tray with scones and prosecco - a perfect start to our week in Marazion!

The house is beautiful, very spacious and comfortable with amazing views and period features. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to cater for a large group. Our stay was a multi-generational family celebration weekend for my son's birthday and everything was absolutely perfect! The property is very well located for the village with pubs and restaurants as well as the beach. Will definitely return

We loved the house. Views were fantastic and all the rooms were a great size. It was easy to find space to get away for some peace and quiet. Will definitely return
