Book

The Linen Loft is tucked away in a prime position in the quintessential market town of Marazion, with its safe, sandy beach that is lapped by the clear, turquoise waters of Mount's Bay. Sleeping five, this reverse level seaside property has all you need for a traditional, family bucket and spade holiday with outside space, parking, commanding breathtaking views of St Michael’s Mount, and don’t forget to bring your four legged members of the family too. Step out to the balcony with your morning cuppa and see the bay come alive at sunrise. Watch as the kite surfers and windsurfers enter the waves from the sandy beach with a fairy tale castle perched on top of St Michael’s Mount as a stunning backdrop.

Marazion spoils you with its choice of eateries, maybe take a stroll with a pasty or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the abundance of restaurants or old Cornish pubs, At low tide amble across the causeway where a legendary giant once walked, or catch one of the frequent ferryboats that mosey back and forth between Marazion and the harbour where ancient tin traders once moored their ships. The Linen Loft is also perfect for birdwatchers too as Marazion Marsh is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, from buzzards to sparrow hawks and starlings. No matter what you are looking for in a break away, chances are, its waiting for you at The Linen Loft.

Our stay in the linen loft was a great experience for the whole family. Accessible to other places in Cornwall if wanting to venture further. A 3 minute walk to the beach,good food sources to purchase from. A generally pleasant holiday that I would do again.

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!

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!

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

The Linen Loft is a lovely holiday property which would have received full marks but for two fairly major problems. Firstly the good points. As usual with Aspects' the property was spotlessly clean, and the kitchen well stocked with all the utensils, etc. you would need. The kitchen/lounge is actually a lot bigger than it looks on the photos and the 5 adults and one dog fitted in very comfortably for the two weeks. However, the fridge freezer is tiny given the number of adults staying (the freezer is a small box big enough for ice cubes only, fridge only big enough for bare necessities, no space for the all important alcohol). This meant trips to the supermarket on an almost daily basis, rather than being able to do one big shop for the week. This was further compounded by the fact that as previous holiday makers have noted the garage with the property will not take an average size family car (we had a Volvo XC60), so each shop run needed picking up the car from the long stay carpark (10 minute walk). Care must be taken when paying for your carpark - 7 days is advertised at £50, but you need the Just Park app, and you need to put in the correct code which is different from the general carpark code. If you submit the latter code and request two weeks the charge is worked out around £186. I would suggest to the property owners, to leave the present fridge freezer for alcohol/ice cubes and install another fridge freezer at least twice the size, the kitchen has enough space to do this. I would also recommend that they take the carpark fee off the cost of the holiday as a good will gesture.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to hear that the fridge and garage space were not what you were expecting from this property. We never want anyone to be disappointed, so try to accurately display and describe everything as best as possible on the website and in this case, because the garage will not fit all vehicles, we clearly advertise the dimensions of the garage. You would need to also bear in mind the ability to be able to open doors within the stated width as well. Unfortunately, a Volvo XC60 is wider than the stated entrance dimensions to the garage, so would not have fit your vehicle, and because the owner still provides that facility and the dimensions are clearly advertised, a reduction in the cost of the holiday is not something that would be possible. We have included photos on the website that show the undercounter fridge and mention the freezer compartment within that, on the description, so we do hope that this was what you were expecting at the time that you booked; however, we would be happy to pass on your suggestion to the property owner, regarding a larger fridge freezer, in case that is something that they may consider in the future. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments and we hope that you still enjoyed your time here. Tanya, Customer Services

We have used aspects holidays a few times now ,we love that we take our 4 legged friends with us, the linen loft was lovely I wasn’t expecting a topsy turvy property but that was part of its charm,we’re looking forwards to booking our next aspects holiday next year. Mrs s Jordan

Our stay in the linen loft was a great experience for the whole family. Accessible to other places in Cornwall if wanting to venture further. A 3 minute walk to the beach,good food sources to purchase from. A generally pleasant holiday that I would do again.

The location of the Linen Loft is in a great position for all that Marazion offers.

After reading some of the reviews, I was concerned about being able to get my car in the garage. I have a 2016 Ford Focus and had no problem putting it in the garage, although getting out of the car could be a problem for some.

Makes a good base to travel from to visit all that the area offers.

We enjoyed our stay in the Linen Loft and have booked to stay again next year.

Loved the views and the light in this property. Was wonderful to enjoy the warmth of the sun in the lounge in the mornings and even better to be able to enjoy the fabulous sunsets from the balcony! The downstairs courtyard was a handy space too and benefits from the sun all afternoon. A well-equipped property that I'd definitely recommend. Comfortable bed and lovely linen and towels. Great location in the heart of the village. (Worth taking note of the description ref parking... access and parking very tight for a larger vehicle.)

We enjoyed our stay at the Linen loft , excellent location to travel sight see etc, lovely walks on the beach with our dog who loved the beach , felt safe in these uncertain times .Only sorry we couldn't complete our full week due to lockdown and decided to come back on the Wednesday before lock down commenced. Staff at Aspects were very helpful and supportive in these uncertain times . Will definitely use them again for future bookings

To be spoilt and transported to an amazing location just book The Linen Loft. The view is just absolutely, completely WOW. The location is perfect , the rooms are bright and airy. The personal touches that are waiting when you are arrive are a lovely treat. We stopped here just as low season started but we were not disappointed. To walk on the beach every day with our dog was paw-fect! 1st time using Aspect Holidays - we WILL be booking again.

Great views,location & spacious. Marazion & all areas we visited are really hot on Covid precautions including track and trace & social distancing. They insist on sanitation & masks which is great. We had a few issues with cleanliness in the Linen Loft that I found a bit disappointing, especially in current climate & more especially given that we had our time there cut short to facilitate extra cleaning, no dishwasher so I wonder if the early departure time of 9am is not helping, freezer in much need of defrosting. I appreciate that having a dog doesn’t help when keeping carpets clean. Fridge is a little small when the loft is fully occupied.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were really pleased to see that you liked the location of the property and the beautiful views that can be seen from there, overlooking Marazion and St Michael's Mount. We were sorry to hear that you experienced a few issues with cleanliness at the property, as we would always expect for you to find everything spotless upon arrival, even in more 'normal' times. All your comments were passed onto the property owners' housekeeper and we will be keeping an eye on all feedback going forward. We were however happy to see that you found all Covid procedures within Marazion to be great, as we know all over Cornwall businesses have been working tirelessly to make sure everything was as safe as possible for all visitors to the county. Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon. Ben, Customer Services

Just returned from 5 nights at the Linen Loft. Great location only a very short walk from the beach, perfect for early morning walks with our dog. The views from the house and balcony are amazing. Spotlessly clean when we arrived. The garage is a bonus although as mentioned on the details it is tight. At the present time it is important to book any restaurants for the evenings as soon as possible as we struggled on a couple of nights. The Godolphin Arms has great views of St Michael Mounts, and if you are lucky you will see fantastic sunsets from there. We normally never go back to the same accommodation, but on this property we will probably make an exception.

Lovely property in a good location with beautiful views. Very well equipped with comfortable beds and attractive furnishings. The only negative is the parking- the garage is extremely tight if you have a larger car and the lane leading to the property is also very narrow (however to be fair- this is highlighted in the property description). Otherwise a great stay in a beautiful location!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you very much for your review. We were delighted to see how much you enjoyed your stay at The Linen Loft and that you found it well equipped. The parking space maybe a bit tight if you have a larger car, but as you have mentioned, we do our best to accurately display this on the website description. The views from the property overlooking St Michaels Mount are breath-taking and is one of our absolute favourites, so we were so pleased to see that you were fond of this too. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Ben, Customer Services.

Lovely two weeks spent in the Linen Loft. Great location and sea views from all three sides. Good selection of puzzles and games (needed due to changeable weather). Handy for the chip shop and I recommend food at Fire Engine Inn (Higher Fore St) and Victoria Inn (Perranuthnoe). Good local walks. Marazion has a huge dog beach 2 mins from the loft overlooking the Mount. A great base, nice decor and all very light and fresh. The town is very well-geared for Covid and most places are open. Parking was tight and the roof box had to come off but at least there was a garage!

Gorgeous town, amazing views, beach wonderful. The linen loft was perfect for a family with older children - can not wait to return.

Lovely and comfortable holiday flat in convenient location.

Really well positioned property, plenty of space inside and out with a very bright and airy feel to the place. Great view down to St Michael's Mount. We really enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic accommodation in a great central location parking is tight but what you would expect from an old property in an old town. A brilliant base for exploring the south of Cornwall - thank you aspects, thank you The Linen Loft we will be back x

Lovely cottage with everything you could need. The outside area was perfect with us having a dog and the balcony off the lounge/kitchen was an added bonus, views were great and it was nice to be able to still sit outside considering the cottage was upside down with the lounge area being upstairs.The Linen Loft was in a great location only a short stroll to the little town of Marazion and the beach. The decor of the Linen Loft was really nice and the cottage was spotlessly clean. It is not often that you find a place that you would want to return to but the Linen Loft is definately a cottage that we would come back to very soon.

We really enjoyed staying in the Linen Loft. The cottage is nicely furnished and modern and had everything we needed. The view of St Michael's Mount from the kitchen is superb and having stayed in lots of places in the area, this has to be the best. Everything in Marazion is within walking distance.

The parking in the garage is quite tight but as long as the passengers get out before going into it and the driver leaves more room on their side to get out, it should not be an issue.

The welcome pack was incredibly generous and much appreciated. We would definitely stay here again.

The Linen Loft was a beautiful little cottage. With pretty much everything you need for a stay. The welcome tray was lovely with cereal, bread, butter, milk, biscuits, cheese and a cream tea. Very thoughtful and very welcome. The views from the kitchen window to St Michaels Mount were stunning as were the views from the balcony to the beach. Marazion is a lovely place and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The garage is quite small and we have a big car but parking is really easy on the slipway car park at £4.50 per day only a couple of mins away. Drop off is fine outside the cottage but the road up is narrow and single track so caution needed. Would highly recommend and would not hesitate to visit again. Marazion makes it easy to visit amazing Cornwall.

Absolutely loved the Linen Loft, stunning views, stylish property, very comfortable and spacious for a family of 5. Wish we had had longer there! Booking process was very straightforward and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Aspects Holidays again! Just be sure your car can fit in the garage as it is garage parking only. The width and length were fine for our car but we couldn’t fit in with the roof box on - we had to remove this before parking! Highly recommended!
