We had a great time and enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was cosy, clean and comfortable. Our hosts Dan and Michaela gave us a very warm welcome and provided local food for our first days! The little terrace was great to enjoy the morning sun. The venue is quiet located, only some minutes drive to Penzance. I really can recommend the Cottage for a little escape from the daily hazels!

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.

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.

Lovely comfortable cottage in peaceful location. Perfect for exploring west of Cornwall. Made to feel very welcome especially by superb welcome pack. Best we’ve ever had. Wonderful!

1 month ago

A lovely little space tucked away up a quiet lane but only minutes from the sea. The perfect base for exploring the whole of South/West Cornwall. Very good value for money and perfect for a couple. Would 100% return.

Jun 2019

We loved Valley View from the moment we arrived, it was very clean and tidy and felt more like a home than a holiday cottage. For us it was in just the right location for both West Penwith and the Lizard. The bonus was the wonderful field for the dogs which was very welcome and the views great. We will certainly return, hopefully this year.

Sep 2018

Comfortable cottage in peaceful countryside & good location for exploring West Cornwall. Large field available for exercising the dogs is a real bonus (from which there are views towards Mounts Bay & St Michael's Mount).
Would recommend to anyone wanting quiet & tranquility.

Again, very sorry, and I hope that the way in which we handled everything while you were here, has reassured you, that we do take things like this very seriously. Tanya, Customer Services ADDITIONAL NOTE- this property has since had a change of owners, who have made further improvements to the property

Valley View is a really nice, friendly, comfortable and quiet place to stay, and a very good starting point for the exploration of western Cornwall.

Oct 2016

Would recommend this spotless modern cottage for couple or small families wanting a peaceful base to explore west Cornwall. A really enjoyable stay. There were lots of nice touches around the property and the owners had thought of everything - well-equipped kitchen, plenty of crockery, lots of towels and enough storage space. Highly recommended.

This cottage was ideal for us- out of the way of the busy towns, nice and peaceful. Just right for us and our baby. Very clean and the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were a very nice touch. We would definitely like to return next year!

Oct 2015

Pretty cottage and a great location for walks

Jun 2015

Perfect little place in the countryside but not to far from beautiful places to visit. St. Michaels Mount was stunning.

Jun 2015

Valley View is a cosy, very well equipped and clean little cottage with owners attached. It is ideal for one dog and has wooden floors with dog walking nearby. It is quite isolated and is ideal if you want peace and quiet. Parking is very handy right next door in a courtyard area that is shared with other occupants in the surrounding 3 properties. Once on the main road it is easy to access St Ives, Penzance etc. No fenced garden for dog so it can get into the lane but due to its remote nature there is little traffic. It was just a little small for our taste.
